Smashwords book reviews by Shannon Sonneveldt

  • This Heart For Hire on May 02, 2013

    The author of the book provided me with a free copy of the book in exchange for my honest review after reading. I love the differences between the characters in this book – the hardened and cynical male and the sweet innocence of the female character. The way the characters pasts are connected but not recalled due to the lack of memories both physical and traumatic, adds a wonderful element to the story as you gradually learn more about the threads that bind the characters. The battle fought between feelings/emotions and what is ‘right’ is an interesting element to the story as well that is weaved throughout. The story made me laugh and totally made me cry at one point. A wonderful book is one that pulls emotions, and this one did that. There is some adult content but it is not excessive and doesn’t take over the story line.

    I really enjoyed this book. It’s a great story told from a unique perspective. It didn’t feel like the same old same old, an interesting that drew me in and kept me reading. The only thing that disappointed me was that you don’t get the whole story. No cliffhanger ending (not a big fan of those), but definitely left me wanting more. I would highly recommend this book and can’t wait for the next one.
