Review by Chicalicious
On the night of Emma's hen party an accident happens that is sure to not only turn her entire world upside down but change the course her future was set to take. On the night of the accident she is saved by none other than handsome American Jack, who becomes smitten with Emma. Does Emma have it in her to be able to forgive and move on without turning cold and bitter?I wasn't digging this book too much. I found that the story was slow and dull up until the 120-160 page and up until that point couldn't bring myself to read it. After page 120-ish I became gripped by the story and just couldn't put the book down, it became almost a page turner.I found most of the characters increasingly annoying. Richard was just so full of himself all of the time and that really irritated me. There were times when I thought Emma was going to be a great protagonist but then she'd make a complete U-turn and question herself and her decisions. She was too busy trying to make everybody else happy and then she'd think of her happiness and switch back. Jack was the only good character in the book. He was fantastic and that's all that needs to be said about him. He had charm, humour, looks, everything! Monique, on the other hand, was f*cking AWESOME! I loved all the parts that involved Jack. I think he made the book better than it would have been had he not been in it. He made it interesting and I was constantly laughing at his humour. On the other hand I just wanted to punch Richard every time he was mentioned because he was just so arrogant and a slimeball.I would have gave this book more than 3 stars but overall I just didn't find the story that great. I found for me it was just a bit flat too often throughout the book to justify a 4 or 5 star rating.
