The One by Belle Ami
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a hard book review to write, I've read so many other reviews and in part I agree. The start of this book is some what confusing, Can a guy who gives a hooker 25G because he wanted her to better herself, really play his part in an elaborate scheme?
The first few chapters are a little confusing, so many characters who have not yet come together.. A lot is going on and we know very little.
Adelia is a somewhat secluded character if not gullible, a strange man comes out of nowhere and your changing your whole world for him. Can it happen? I guess you can get women like her but she was so naive. I mean the woman made it through college she can't be that closed off right?
BUT I Stuck with this book!! I am happy I did. This was a train wreck waiting to happen, like rubber necking at a car accident. You knew Adelia was heading for a fall and you wanted to see it. Save her! Uncover this scary, crazy scheme and all its secrets. It made for page turning, riveting reading.
To my better judgement I liked Miles the feminist in me is screaming but I did! He was damaged goods, not in a psychopath way like his sister but he had a dark side to him.
Do I feel his love for Adelia is genuine.. Absolutely and I knew from the very start he would be the weak link in the plan. We knew from early on Karolin was calling the shots she has manipulation down and it was terribly scary to see the lengths that this women went too. Parts of this book are RAW and not to everybody liking but this is a dark story.
I really liked that Adelia seemed to grow a backbone for her kids.. near the end. Do I think its over? Not by a long shot!! I can not wait for book two I need to know how this is all doing to plan out.
Karolin needs to be put in a padded room and I hope Miles sees her for what she is!
I also think Lucas needs to be looked into more there is something there I am sure of it!
Do I want Adelia with David, I don't know! I do hope for a happy ending with Miles he needs a genuine love.. He needs light in his life.
Do I think he killed her parents? NO. Their are so many questions left to find answers to!
So in conclusion this book for me was a rough start, I was overwhelmed by the number of characters and little information. But I am thrilled to have stuck with this read. I am excited for the next read in this trilogy..
