When You Were Mine Book 15
So most of you know by now I LOVE romance. It's hard for me to like a book without a lot of it. I expected to LOVE this book. And it was good, but I'm not sure it will live up to my all time favorites list.
I don't know that the romance was quite as strong as I expected, but I enjoyed the book. I wasn't sure I would like the voice. The book started out with a strong voice, but lots of sentences were followed by sentences that absolutely didn't matter. A lot of people talk that way, but it's annoying to read, and I thought I would get tired of it. However after the first couple of chapters I didn't notice it anymore. I don't know if that means it changed or that I just got so involved with the story I didn't notice. And it is a strong story. I thought at first from some of the things that happened in "Act 1" that this was going to be more like a "true story of Romeo and Juliet" where Rosaline makes a villain of Juliet. It's not. It's a good story. You should read it. I like it a whole lot more than the original, and I really like the ending. 4 stars
