I am never really any good with these things, I kind of feel like I am at a job interview. So let's see, what can I tell you about me and my little blog thingy? Ok well I am an avid reader and have been doing since I first learned how. About a year ago I became a part of the review world. I am in no way a professional and I pretty much do it for the fun of it. I have no rules and no guidelines for myself, well except for I always have to be completely honest. And you can tell by my reviews that I have posted so far that I have no problem at all with that. I add my personality to every review and I know things don't always make sense but I bet you laughed(hopefully). I usually stick to romance books but I have been know to pick up others if the cover and synopsis garb my attention. I currently help out on a couple blogs and reviews teams plus I am an occasionally guest reviewer on one.
To tell you about me well, I am a 30+ year old stay at home mom. I went completely blind about two years ago. But with a couple of eyes surgeries I now have complete vision back in one eye. I have a serious weakness for tattoos and I am currently proudly showing off 12 of my own. Yeahhhh, so that's it for now.
This book was given to me from Netgalley for an honest review.
This book was not anything like I expected. And which was actually a nice thing. I have been reading books lately that were so Alpha-male-love-me, it was great to take a break from. Anyways, so here we have Katrina a.k.a Tree. She was still in mourning from the loss of her husband four years earlier to really live her life. Don't get me wrong, she was living it but only for her little girl, Abby. She wasn't really living it for herself. Who could blame her? And here we have Adrian, with ghost of his past constantly haunting him also, he was also living the same as Tree. He never really stopped to smell the roses, just went through day to day with a drink in his hand. But a chance of some rather cute mistaken identity and a case of attempted homicide with shellfish an adorable love story was started.
It was nice watching these two kind of finally open up their eyes and take a look around and to look and see what was right in front of them. This book really digs deep and makes you actually open up and look into your own life. It was a little eye opening at times. Like I said, way different than what I am use to reading lately. It was nice to actually meet the reformed bad guy after he grew out of the bad. And was just trying to find his place in a new life. It warmed my heart. And once Tree faced her own ghost and finally started living for herself, she saw a lot more.
This book was good, I enjoyed it. At times though it did seem to get a little carried away with detail and gave us some useless information. Some detail and info can be good but when you have to much it can drown a story. I did get a little bored a few times and put the book down, so it definitely wasn't a stay up all night read for me. So with sex, drugs, rock-n-roll, shellfish, tattoos, a little heartbreak and a British accent, I would tell you to go ahead and pick the book up and check it out for yourself.
