Series: Abandoned at the Altar #1
Published by Avon
Although I liked this book, there is one thing that stopped me from really enjoying it. Beatrix. I just didn’t understand her and she drove me just a little nuts, I didn’t see why she resisted to Will as much as she did, especially when she clearly wanted what he was offering. To me she came across as a little dull and a little priggish. Because of this I didn’t feel the connection between Will and Trix and didn’t see why Will loved her so much. Will, however, I did like, he was fun, easy going and adventurous. The other characters in the book were also likeable, especially Julia and I look forward to reading about her.
Despite not liking the heroine this was a well written book and LLG writes with real emotion, I can feel Trix’s anguish and hurt even if I don’t quite understand it. Although, for me, this series hasn’t started with a bang, I liked the writing and the other characters enough that I will try out the next book.
Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
