Book Review- The Good Girl

Mia Dennett, a twenty something urban girl, goes missing. After a few months, when she is rescued from her kidnapper, she does not respond to the name Mia but claims that she is Chloe. The doctor finds out that she is Mia/Chloe is pregnant, but she does not remember how that happened. Twisted, eh?

I can’t say I liked this book from the first page. The story is narrated from the perspectives of Mia, Colin, Eve and Gabe. The narration also switches from before the incident and after the incident. So initially, it was difficult to stay interested. But I had a feeling that there was something more in here. And I was right. Somewhere after almost 12-14 switches between “before and after” and putting every character’s perspective in place, I started getting a hang of the plot. And it became slightly interesting.

Book Review- Against All Rules by Summerita Rhayne

Tahir: - Suave, professional, dashing and super-confident yet vulnerable at some point. You want to hate him, love him, and sympathize with him…all at the same time.
Samara:- Decent, smart and modest small town girl who wants to focus on career. You fall in love with her right in the beginning.

Against All Rules is a sensuous roller-coaster ride of emotional tug of war between Tahir and Samara. In couple of chapters initially, the story constantly reminded me of Fifty Shades of Grey. But I was about to shrug it off as yet another soppy erotic tale built only upon lust, I was taken in by the deep emotional hurricane brewing in the minds of these characters. The author has done a good job of balancing passion and judgment.
