I think this book has a good plot and had the potential of being a great read. Sadly though, I don’t think the author delivered it well. I was looking forward to reading about Lucy Moore getting a hold of herself and taking over her life and her love life but I didn’t see that happen. Normally, with stories that started the way this one did, you see the heroine or the hero get up from the mess of the relationship they were previously with. Then step by step they started to move on, have a better life, meet someone and find themselves in a better state of what falling in love really meant. I don’t know if I’m just being a silly romantic with these notion so not everyone probably share my opinion on this. But I think I didn’t actually see both of the characters “moving on” and finding a new love. Moreover, Lucy Moore was so confuse all the time regarding what she felt that it made my head ache just reading about her thoughts.
I don’t think the soul mate thing actually worked either. I didn’t understand what the author was trying to mean with the soul mate idea because I don’t think it worked that way. The characters also lacked the background to make them feel real. It’s as if their past was just mentioned to give justice to the conflict and not really as a means to build their characters. The only good part of the novel was the latter part where everything was put into place even though it also felt like the author rushed her way to achieve that happily ever after.
When it comes to the characters, I’d say I liked the best friend better than both the hero and heroine. Maybe when the author decide to write her story, I might pick that up and see if her character will be given justice. Though this book, has been lacking for what I look for in a novel, I think the author have the potential of writing better ones in the future and I won’t hesitate to give her work another try.
