“So while I did have some high hopes, this one was a bit underwhelming for me.”
~ Under the Covers
Doesn’t it feel like it has been ages since we’ve gotten a book from Anna Godbersen? I remember back in the day, before I even read Romance or had a blog, I used to read Godberson when I strictly only read Young Adult books. So I was excited to see that she was coming out with a new series after this long time. Because of the nostalgia, I feel a bit sentimental toward this author and had some pretty high hopes about this new book.
BEAUTIFUL WILD keeps in touch with Anna’s signature style. It’s Historical Romance with a Young Adult focus. I definitely feel like she has the potential to write Historical Romance for adults. I’m not sure if she has, but I appreciated the fact that she uses the terminology well despite writing for a younger audience.
However, I did find this book to be quite slow. It didn’t grip me like I thought it would and I’m also not fully sold on the concept of the series either. It might be first-book syndrome so I am going to give book two a go to decide whether or not this series if for me. I also did kind of wonder about the cover since I don’t really think it matches the tone of the storyline, but maybe it’s not such a big deal for some.
So while I did have some high hopes, this one was a bit underwhelming for me. But I will try the next one out to see if the author can win me over with this new series.
