Review by jolzyn
If I were to use one word to describe this book, it will be "smooth". The story was told in a rather smooth way. It is about Dominique or domino from young till she married Brendan up to his betrayal. It was rather unusual though that from the synopsis, one would think that the story will focus on the after-math after Brendan went missing without any new but it was not so. The story started with the story of Dominique since young, her first meeting with Brendan, married and the life of her and her family after their shotgun married.There are some other interesting characters: Gabriel, Emma and Greg who is Brendan's brother and June and Barry. The love triangle between Gabriel, Emma and Greg are very interesting and the author manage to keep the suspend on bay as to the state of their relationship.I dislikes June's character at all. She is a selfish people who after Brendan leave abruptly has taken the liberty to blame Dominique for the state that they are in with I find it very unreasonable and would wish there was not as much scene of her in the rest of the book! :)It was towards the last quarter of the book that the conflict unveil itself. I hate to see that everyone is able to embrace him back after his abrupt disappearance and the way both Dominique and Kelly accepted him back make me feel so unfair for them.This book indeed a well scripted book that is easy to read and meaningful to those who struggle with low self esteem.
