The saving grace for this book for me was Irene, Elise’s daughter.
I know that is a strange way to start a review, but for the most part, especially in the beginning, I spent a lot of time rolling my eyes at the dialogue. Irene was a very precocious little girl, but she was also a breath of fresh air.
As for the rest, the love scenes were cheesy and I would have loved this entire book more without them. That being said this story was more emotional for me than I remember the other book being. Elise’s story is a bit close to things that I have seen happen or have experienced myself and the author did a good job dealing with those issues.
If some of the dialogue and the sex scenes would have been better, I would have definitely given this book a higher rating. Here’s hoping the next one will be better.
