[[ Read ]] Bound by One Scandalous NightAuthor Diane Gaston – Papercuts.co

I wasn t a big fan of this book Amelie felt a little too naive and weak for her to be a character I rooted for Her insecurities, especially in the beginning, were a little annoying as she came to the conclusion that because one man rejected her all men would, and she d never be able to get married I wanted to shake her and tell her to stop with the self pity.I wasn t interested in the maid s story and not sure that having her point of view really added anything We weren t in her point of view enough for me to feel a connection to her I found myself skim reading those parts.There were times in the plot where outside events felt too convenient a way to move the emotions and plot forward, such as finding the crib leading to Edmund confessing his feelings, and the father turning up in relation to the embezzlement I did like perhaps not the right word the miscarriage element as it felt like an unusual angle and an interesting tragedy to explore as it doesn t normally happen in romance fiction.My problems with this book might have been because I recently read another book by this author which had similar events opening with women being rescued, an unexpected pregnancy and a man who wants to do the right thing but felt satisfying.

I LOVED this book Such a joy to read With my little one, I get a few minutes to read every few days if I m lucky and it was extra tough to put this one down I loved Edmund Gaston is a wonderful writer. Actual rating 3.5 stars Despite starting off barely knowing each other, Edmund and Amelie were great communicators and trusted each other early on What a joy it was to not have to slog through misunderstandings One huge hurdle they faced was Amelie s parents and their unwillingness to accept Edmund as her husband This conflict only strengthened the young couples bond, and I really enjoyed watching their marriage develop into something special Even when they faced tragedy, they learned to support one another If you re in the mood for a romance with a realistic slant on human nature, pick this one.
