Review

Heat: 2/5
Rating: 3/5

I always find it a little difficult to review novellas and little extras to novels. I don’t go above a four-star rating because there’s just not enough time to get fully involved with the characters and plot. For me, Wild Abandon was my top read of 2016, so I was super-excited to get a chance to follow the Tellers again in this little Christmassy follow-up. It didn’t disappoint, and I got as much enjoyment at revisiting these characters as I could have hoped for; however, it also didn’t add anything particularly worthwhile to their love story.

In some respects, the fact that I felt the urge to slap Nate around the head a few times made me doubt his status as my top ever book boyfriend, despite the understandable (and noble) causes behind his behaviour.

A sweet Christmassy addition for fans of the series.

When you fall in-love it’s forever
But sometimes forever comes with a price.
I never meant to meet Nathaniel Teller. It was by accident, on a Tuesday, that I walked into his bar. He was solemn, intense and hiding a secret behind those stoic green eyes.

I never intended to fall in-love with him. We were supposed to be just friends. But I fell for him hard, deep. There’s no turning back.
I never thought his past would be so dark. And if I thought I had any chance of being in his future, I was wrong. Because his past is his future.And I need to walk away.

Excerpt
He is about to take a shot. His eyes lose focus, and he stands and looks at me. “Why him?”
 
I tilt my head at Nate. I don’t know if they’re reflective of the green felt of the pool table, but right now, his eyes are so piercing and mesmerizing. I swear, he can see right through me.
 
“Why was he worthy of a second date?” he asks.
 
I open my mouth to answer but close it for fear that I’ll say something wrong.
 
Why Brent? Because he’s emotionally available. Because he has the perfect career and a full head of hair and loves cats and classical music and is lukewarm to sports.
 
And, most importantly, because the man I really want to be interested in me is with someone else.
 
“He checks all the boxes.” My voice is low.
 
Nate’s chest rises with a deep breath. His eyes are stone cold and scorching hot all at once. He is so far away, yet I can feel his exhale on my skin.
 
With his eyes still on mine, Nate takes a step back from the table. “He has a lot of money. He can take care of you.”
 
I nod my head. “Yes.”
 
Nate takes a few steps, slow and steady, toward the corner of the table in my direction. His eyes curve in question, yet their focus never leaves mine.
 
“He was married. Probably ready to settle down again. Start a family.”
 
I nod again.
 
Even closer, he places his pool stick on the table. I have no idea what his mission is, but it’s making my palms sweat and my breathing erratic.
 
“Did he tell you that you’re beautiful?”
 
My breath hitches, and I nod my head again. Nate is now just a few inches from me. His gaze is hard and stern on mine.
 
“He’s an idiot. He should have told you that you’re fucking gorgeous.” His words are hypnotic, but the tone he delivers them in is rough, raw.
 
“That wasn’t a requirement. I don’t need a man to tell me I’m pretty.”
 
“I know what your boxes are. He is the perfect guy for you. That’s why I have to know…”
 
Nate’s chest is now flush with mine, his forehead bowing down to meet mine, and I lose all air from my lungs.
 
“Why are you here with me and not with him?”
 
I swallow hard. “Because he’s not you.”

REVIEW: Wild Abandon – Jeannine Colette

wild abandonTitle: Wild Abandon
Author: Jeannine Colette
Series: The Abandon Collection #3 (standalone in a series)
Genre: romance
Rating: *****

I’ve been sat here staring at my laptop screen for about five minutes, not sure what to write and how to do this book justice. I read it straight through in one sitting, and literally could not put my Kindle down. This is a well-crafted, beautifully-written story, a different approach to everlasting love. And it made me ugly cry. A lot.

Not only was I firmly engrossed and rooting for Nate and Crystal’s relationship, which was simultaneously sweet and hugely passionate, but I also found my heart racing for Nate’s past, falling in love with two stories at once and having my own heart broken because of the complexity and the pain of the situation.

But not only was this a highly emotional read, it was also funny in all the right places. Crystal’s online dates, her relationships and interactions with her friends, and most of all her conversations with Nate, which were written in such a real, human way that I could have easily had those exact conversations in my own life.

This is a perfect example of the reason I pick up books every day, the exact thing I am hoping to find. I am in love and I am heartbroken.
