Rating : 3.5 out of 5 Stars
I thought this book was very entertaining. I felt the author had a wonderful way of drawing me into her story, her writing is engaging. That being said, this book had a very fast pace and I was sometimes confused about what was going on. The one thing that bothered me a bit as I read is at points it felt like the reader is missing out on a big part of the heroes’ back story. I think I would have benefitted from knowing more about the circumstances that bring these two together to begin with, including some flashbacks of the time when they were married and decided to keep their marriage a secret.
Samina is an attorney. She takes on famous clients and has become a celebrity in her own right. For four years, she has been secretly married to Devin Camden, a man who hates sensationalism, heir to a political dynasty. Devin doesn’t want to be seen in public with Samina and they pretend they barely know each other. Frankly, I could not understand Devin’s reasoning behind his decision to keep their marriage a secret. Important relationship details weren’t explored, I needed more in depth exploration of his emotions and of past events. Devin and Samina’s relationship is complicated, there is a lot of hurt between them and they are on the verge of divorce. Devin wants to be Samina’s priority, and she wants him to accept her need for success and be proud of her achievements.
And yet, these two were incredibly combustible, I absolutely loved them together. Samina is strong and full of sass. Devin has a lot to make up for but I loved that he was not willing to give up and divorce Samira. I was happy to see them work out their issues.
All in all, this book was a great read, and I wouldn’t hesitate to pick something else up by this author.
Many thanks to the author and Give Me Books for my copy of this book.
