I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started reading this book since I never really read anything adult-ish with a character the same age as me. I didn’t love this book but I didn’t hate it either. Annabelle is the wife of a billionaire but the relationship isn’t working and she needs time away from her husband after finding him having sex with someone else. Her friend agrees to watch her kids while she takes a trip to St. John to stay at her friends brothers house to think about what she wants to do. The place seemed breathtaking but I thought the everything happened so fast. Johnny the caretaker of the house is a little broken from a failed relationship. He was young and sexy and I could tell why Annabelle was so attracted to him but I felt she went away to clear her head and figure out what she wanted to do with her life however that was rather hard to do when Johnny seemed to be every where looking all sexy and distracting. I wanted to see how she was going to overcome what happened to her, I don’t know, I just thought after being in a relationship with her husband for so long, someone who made her something she was not, she would want to take more control over her life and Johnny appeared to be doing that for her. He was almost borderline stalker sexy guy. The “love” seemed to happen so quickly and was based more on sex than emotion. That is what bothered me the most. It didn’t have the build I was looking for, it was like a damsel in distress being rescued by a white knight but not for the right reasons. I totally get they were both lonely but I was just all to fast and could bring lots of regret.
This book had all the sex and steamy moments a great adult book should have but I thought some where in the middle it lost the character/relationship build it needed to work for me. I understand this is a serial and maybe it would be better to read the entire series before judging or maybe this would be better to read all at one time, I am not sure, I would like to continue on and see what happens, you know, I want to give it the benefit of the doubt, but I am in no rush. Should you read it, I would give it a try but I think I would suggest reading it all in one sitting.
