The main plot took to long to materialize and the ending was not what I was looking for. A better ending would have earned this book another star!

Love has reasons that Reasons can’t understand

This is my first novel by Arlene Brathwaite; I was not disappointed in this one and will check out her earlier work.

All the character in this book work very well and all had essential part to play in the development of this Novel. They were sneaky, funny and some were trust worthy while other not so. There were no useless characters and they all had background info offered to help understand why they did the things they did.

We are introduced to Oli

This is my first read from this author, and she did not disappoint. From the description I was not expecting the subject matter of the book to be what it was. It really had it all, suspense, mystery, and a bit of romance thrown in. Saint was an interesting character, really a chameleon of sorts.

I enjoyed this book but I kept getting s sense of I had read it before , I remember the Movie The Saint and The TV show . This Saint had his own spin and I enjoyed it. I just wish the were more of the romance in this story, I feel like there is more to tell and hopefully the author will write another book about Saint.

This is probably more like a 3.5 or possibly a 4 if the ending had been slightly different. It had some great action, and his job was a great plot move, but the ending kind of left me hanging and slightly confused and irritated. Might read it again sometime in the far future.

I've started this book today and the dialogue is driving me batty. I will persevere because of so many positive reviews but I have to say, it's pretty hard going so far !

I really enjoyed this one. It had plenty of twists that I didn't expect. It would have been super amazing if the end was different. But over all I really enjoyed reading it.
