I received a copy of this book by the author, in exchange for an honest review.All opinions are, of course, honest and completely my own.
This story is about Larken Devereauxy , who at the start of the story is completely blindsided and taken by surprise when her fiancee decide to break up with her. Brokenhearted she returns to her aristocratic roots in Charleston. While being back she has to tackle her mom, suffer through impending heartbreak and deal with trying to find her own way in live and be independent. While dealing with all this she has to choose between a man that has loved her forever and an intriguing passionate plastic surgeon.
I received this book quite a while ago and due to study and life it went on the back burner of my tbr. So when i decided to pick this up it was a forced decision because i had put it off far too long and i had no expectations by that point. This book hit me with quite a surprise. I was engrossed and into it the whole way through. And kinda enjoyed every minute of it.
I enjoyed Larken as a MC, she was nice and kinda lost about her life and the choices she wants to make. Jackson intrigued me at first but than i got quite bored with him. Mile has this whole persona of mystery around him for quite a long time and i couldn’t wait to find out answers. The side characters moms, the grandma and Bart were quite refreshing and i loved them.
This is quite and enjoyable chicklit with the same vibes as some of Nora Roberts stories about Mc’s with aristocratic family background. The writing is flowy and easy to follow.
The ending of the book is quite dramatic and has such a plot twist to it. This was such a fun fun book to read. Enjoyed it a lot. The lifestyle and the people of the south portrayed in the story were nice to read and to enjoy their high end part filled lives.
Another favorite part of mine about it is that gorgeous as heck cover so beautiful.
I would recommend this to everyone who is a fan of chick lit. This book was fun fun fun to read.
