Kim’s Review – Fantasy Book #2:  2.5 Stars What a Brilliant Idea!

Thank you to Sliver Dagger Tours for my free copy for an honest review. All opinions are my own. I was really drawn to this series of books I wanted to read them all!  By the blurbs of each book and the genres. I started off by reading Fantasy book #2. The blurb and idea are fantastic! As I read I had a lot of questions, around the plot, characters and how developed  they  are. It wasn’t the story or idea for the plot itself that I questioned at all, that is the masterpiece of this romantic thriller– the idea it’s brilliant.  What lacked was to read it transferred to paper, I had doubts about characters and how everything played out. It was  a little under developed for me.

We follow the  brilliant idea of this story a love triangle you could say, between Destini, Chloe, and Delvin. Without giving away spoilers for potential readers Destini and Delvin end up married, because Destini told him she is pregnant. However he loves Chloe and Chloe loves him a classic love triangle. It all starts off from a wild party, they had a four-some two couples had sex. This is where doubt crept in for me as a reader from the start,  I could not see why Delvin and Chloe love each other, there is little romance, they had group sex.  The relationship felt underdeveloped to be believable. I could not see their connection outside sex.

As the plot moves forward Destini is not pregnant, and readers are aware she has a plan though. This is where the plot also felt underdeveloped.  As I read, I felt possibly there would have and could have been in reality, sooooo many more challenges for Destini’s plan. Considering what she was trying to pull off. This girl is nuts! And I loved that about the plot– the main female is crazy. However, the lack of challenges, lack of her crazy-ness made everything fall into place, and caused doubt for me. Killing  the ‘thriller’ vibe with no challenges or tension given what she wanted to do. She’s a little under developed also.  I don’t want to give spoilers for readers. Over the course of her fake pregnancy everything ‘went to plan’ more a less with no challenges.  Because of this I guessed where the story was going,  and what’s up ahead  I got it right! No surprises for me.

I don’t want to put readers off and be too negative, but generally as a reader I felt when I finished that, the idea is genius for the story. I just wished the author smoothed over the gaps  in the plot and main character. This would have reduced my doubt as a reader and ability to guess what happens, and make it more realistic, believable etc. I did not read the other books in time, I can’t comment. However if you  like romantic crime thriller give this  a download it today! I am just one reader, you may love it!  I am sure others will love it to the bones!   I would read more from the author, as I said I was drawn to their work generally. For Fantasy book #.2 it’s 2.5 stars from me, for a brilliant idea.

I wish the author a lot of success and a brilliant readership, who love the books to the bone. Thank you to Silver Dagger for my copy again.
