To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I didn't understand this book. The heroine was in love with the hero all her life and planned a future with him, but he wanted to see the world and understand what he wants. So instead of telling her about it, he rejected her and fled. Then he finally realized his mistake and returned.
And attention! he stated that they had to achieve everything separately. What kind of relationship is it where people cannot develop together?
Although the few pages written that involve the main characters were good, there was constant interruptions with the side characters within the book. It was like being at the library and while trying to read a few chapters you were constantly being interrupted by a chatty Cathy...ugh!! So, with that being said I did read this novella twice, the first time it was every page and I was extremely annoyed and wanted my money back. Then I re-read the few pages that are actually devoted to the main characters and it was enjoyable, but that being said it only took me less than two 1/2 hours to read this twice. Definitely not worth $2.99
This was...silly. Which is fine, because sometimes you want a silly book. For me, though, the characters strained credulity even by silly book standards, and made contrived decisions that weren't believable, in order to arrive and love and happiness within the page length confines of a novella. Obstacles are set up and then very easily overcome, usually by having characters react calmly and agreeably to events that are set up to be shocking or dangerous. While bodice ripping doesn't need to be THAT grounded in reality (bodices are awfully hard to rip, for a start) this one verged into goofy AND had the heroine experience endangerment and lies from an old lover in order to "prove himself" and win her back. The trope of "he's only doing this because he REALLY loves me" isn't one that's palatable to me, personally, so this wasn't enjoyable.
