Book Review – LIVING by ELAINE MARIE
See what our review team is saying about Living
I loved the plot of this book. Right from the start my heart broke for Leann, but seeing her open her eyes to living even after what she went through was amazing.
Leann is making a huge chance to move on from her past and I really admire her. She is sweet and really down to earth.
Brandon made me so mad at one point I wish he would have jumped off the ship, but, all his other quality a made me get over that really fast. He was sexy, and sweet, thoughtful and raw. He was a great hero.
So, like I said above; the plot was different. The whole mystery cruise thing was awesome and I would mind doing on my self! As the story went on I got more and more hooked with the characters and the plot. I do with that it was longer so we could have gotten more detail, more days of the cruise.
The main thing I didn’t like was how predictable things were. I can’t go into details because maybe it won’t be that way for other people, but for me, I know soon with the mystery aspect. While the ending was wrapped up nicely, I still felt that I needed more, and it wasn’t there. An epilogue would have been nice.
I would love to get another book with the secondary characters! They were awesome and I wouldn’t mind seeing their happy ending. And maybe a look at LeAnn and Brandon in the future.
Overall, being. My first book but this author I thought she did an awesome job. Sometimes things went a little fast, but I was still able to enjoy it because the characters were very easy to relate to. I plan to read more from this author. ~ Jessica
