A very fast read even though several times I wanted to throw the book against the wall for Grace‘s naivety. I mean just the fact that Jack decides to take away her career from her is already a blaring warning sign but she goes on and puts her entire future on his hands. Talk about a whirlwind romance. And then there’s his freaking awful behavior the night of their wedding and the next day when he decides to go straight to the airport instead of dropping by the hospital to visit Millie.
I honestly would have dumped him after the second offense regardless of his superhuman good looks. Grace is obviously too weak to resist his charm and I AM blaming her. Lol.
It is actually my seething anger at Grace’s foolish choices and at Jack’s awful psychosis that served as my fuel, propelling my speedy navigation through the book and I couldn’t deny that despite the flaws, it’s fast paced, easy to read (despite the contrived dialogue), and admittedly quite intriguing.
The length of the entire novel is just the right number of pages and I’m thankful that there aren’t any unnecessary plot twists or backstory, no multiple narratives, or annoying unreliable narrators. It’s simple and yet quite engaging and thus deserving the 3.5 stars.
