got to download from Amazon. It started of wonderful but then it got just ridiculous. I am developing this hate for novellas now. This could have been so much more. It was all over the place for me. I wish the book was paced nicely. It just seems make so agitated that this woman has been raped and is three months pregnant yet already falling in love and allowing another man to kiss her. I wished there had been this long gap before she is wanting to make love to Hugo. The book started out strong and good but started to fall flat and just a distasteful because of the situation at hand. She is a rape victim that is only three months pregnant from the result of this not that long ago attack. I get that this is a novella but not enough where I can rave to all my book nerd friends and have has searching out for more books by the writer.
Urghh I hate that she has just been kidnapped and one the first night at his home she enjoys having sex with him??????????????????????????????!!!!!!! Like he is taking her against her will a man she barely knows or got to know. Lame but aside from that the story was okay but could have been executed better. Rewriting should be started and better pacing in mind and more realistic story. Come on including the part of her rape she is a virgin and I am sure fear would have overrided everything else not pleasure the man raided her him and killed almost everyone. Two stars
It was okay and rushed. Like I said it was okay and I can't say anything else other then the best time to read is when you are really bored and even then you may just end up stop reading and find.yourself searching out a different book to read
Okay there seriously must be reviews from friends and family. This story was okay but got annoying and just plain awful. I wish I had never waster my time. Yet it had promise urghhhhh this was just bad.
Sentence of Marriage (Promises to Keep: Book 1)
on Oct. 15, 2013
Reasons why I wont read the other books to this stupid saga.
First. Off the girl is treated like cow crap by stepmother then the stepmothers brother then the place she has the baby!?!/!/! To now apparently to deal with an abusive husband there is not that much hate in the word and I swear I am just anguish that I read this piece of junk. Seriously nobody's life is that sad that three book needed to be written. Plus this was so dragged out I just scanned over the pages after awhile it was yawning moments throughout.
I struggled to even make it past chapter One alone. I didn't know who was talking half the time and I didn't get whether or not she married her half brother(blood related/sharing one parent) or step sibling. Incest anyone?????!!!???!! I really had to reread chapter one. Later found out Bassus is the stepfather so the girl has two stepparents. How the heck did that happen!!!! An explanation came how it was she ended up with two stepparents but a little to late for me my attention was barely there anymore on this book.
There needs to be or possibly a part in the front or back of the book a definition of words that were used in the novel and their meaning for example ~tunica ~ I am going to guess its a dress instead of a sweater or wrap to keep warm
While Stola which I am guessing.means like a sweater or shawl.
I never had to frown so much while reading a novel. Good thing this was a free read because a refund would have been requested at the end of Chapter One.
I didn't feel the love between Luc and the woman it felt forced on me as the reader it could have been developed better. I skipped over the lovemaking part but I have no problem with sex scences it just seemed irrelevant and probably the worst I've read because I didn't get why it was needed considering I didn't see true love the author went about it her own to make the couple be in love it wasn't believable to me. The story was manageable to read but not something I'd even recommend or let other book reading nerds like myself know about it.
Okay I am not a fan of this book. Because with this rape theme the scenes are a hot mess and make me want to burn the book. Come on if I have to read anymore about a victim being aroused at the forcing of sex I am going to scream. I know how the victims can be forced to be aroused but its not something I want to read. There was a lack of timeline I had to guess how much time had passed and no I do not like this author. Perhaps in future a awesome beta reader PR readers will do some good and practice. That time line issue could have been easily fixed. Urghh I just wanted to pull out my red pen and make notes to slam it on the authors desk.
I enjoyed the book it was really good but......... there were some eye roll moments and the sex scenes were not written that good in my opinion that for a moment it seemed out of place the way it was written. I wish there were more chapters at the end to explain what happened during the escape and to the other witches in the jail cell. It was obvious the author rushed the last two chapters just to end it that left me confused and wishing more chapters had been added and then the last chapter added.
Got my download from amazon
A fan of books in these categories but this book was awful. It was all over the place. The female was dislikable and the male was all right. Overall I won't be reading anything more from this author. Got a free copy of the book from a different site and I am glad it was FREE.
I read this story a year ago. It was trashy and I prayed this author would take it down. I hated it and was offended and so were black friends of mine. This was.rape not erotic or hot. It pissed me off. So white bitches are horny and want black men to come in their house and take them. This was awful and done distasteful in my opinion and its no wonder no one is writing reviews. Zero stars but she gets one maybe.the lady is ignorant
This was really good. Different from all the remakes I have read thus far. I don't know what happened when formatting was happening. So errors in the book that can be fixed. I feel this author has a best seller in my opinion if she makes this into a full blown novel. If it gets a make over and the authors full undivided attention I could see myself recommending it.
Someone could knock E.L. James out of the way and become the new queen.of erotic.
By the way where are the other parts????? Don't advertise a books release and then don't deliver.
