    Disappointing., July 9, 2014
    I received an early complimentary copy for an honest review.

    This was an unraveled mess of a book. It started out depressing with some sort of Cinderella-esque misery in which the heroine was mired. Plucky though she was, it was awful to read about her mother’s deteriorating health and terminal disease. Then there was the dyslexia and lack of resources, add the awful step-brother, add to this the danger of her job and then throw in the hero who appears out of nowhere to promise a lot of filthy sex but no connection. The hero too was isolated, completely by circumstance and also by choice, he seemed to have some friends but this was not detailed in any depth so as secondary characters they lacked interest. The characters had potential but did not reach it. All I could think of at the end of the book was a scenario where if you went into a store to buy a sweater for warmth and that looks nice, go home and open the bag and saw that you somehow ended up with a random-holey-mess, threads hanging and trailing, with the promise of the rest of the sweater to come, maybe, maybe not…..then this is the same disappointing feeling I walked away from this book with.

    I was lucky enough to receive an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Tiny is a struggling-to-make-ends-meet 25 year old and the sole carer for her mother who is fighting cancer for the second time. She has a stepbrother who gives her a job that brings her to Ian, the gorgeous gazillionaire and the two of them strike up an arrangement that supposedly benefits them both. She’s beautiful with a heart of gold, but she’s dyslexic, so it’s very difficult for her to find a good paying job to cover her mother’s medical expenses.

    For the most part I liked Tiny. I loved her relationship with her mother and her struggles to do what she needed to do. She had her flaws and that’s normal. But Ian? He was so dang perfect it was unrealistic. He inserts himself into her life, taking over everything; paying for all her (and her mother’s) expenses, buying her clothes, making her fully financially reliant on him. I also liked that even though it’s obvious this story is to continue, it doesn’t leave us with a relationship cliffhanger. And I hope that Tiny seeks help with her dylexia. I was a little disappointed this didn’t happen in this book, but hopefully the next one?

    I’m not a huge fan of first person narrative, but the writing was good enough that it didn’t annoy me as much as I thought it would. Overall, it’s a good enough book with a very popular theme (rich tormented man / poor down-on-her-luck girl). I just wish the characters were a little more developed so I could feel a stronger connection. But it held my interest enough to finish it and laze away a quiet rainy afternoon.

    I got as far as them on the bus home from the Dr.’s, so maybe 10 pages in, 15 at most, maybe 8, I dunno and then deleted it from my kindle. I’m not sure if I disliked how the story started, or where I automatically saw where it was going (predictable), or if it was the writing or the main character. For three days I tried to read this, would get a page or two in then close it out to find a new book to read on my kindle. I just didn’t like it from the get-go!
