Finish Time: 3 nights. Page turner this was, quality read this was not. And also not my typical kind of read, I couldn’t see the cover on my Kindle Paperwhite. Not that I have to stick to one genre, but this is not my type of read. Needless to say, I will still review and although it did hold my interest, I felt the story was overshadowed with sex and just lacked any depth. Maybe that was intentional, but did not make for a book that I would recommend to others.
It did rope me in. Set up a little different from what I expected, the book was separated into a few different sections. I figured like a lot of books, it would go back and forth between different stories, but this one told each story up till a point and left of eluding to a letter. I shortly realized said letters would not be revealed until the very end with an additional follow-up story. And for me, this story was way to predictable, I had it figured out pretty quickly. Well not the content of the letters, but what was going on. The stories all lead up to a certain event that was not entirely predictable but still not as dramatic as the build-up promised.
I honestly don’t want to get into more of the story lines or characters at risk of spoiling the story, the summary does that. Let’s just say the three stories cover romance, lust, passion, family, fear, and a whole range of emotions. As the reader, I found myself angry, frustrated, and somewhat feeling for the characters, but not too much. I’ll hold off saying what I really wanted to do to the characters as it may spoil some things too.
Again, I hate to judge a book by its cover, and I’m really not doing that here, as I did read the book, but had I seen the cover in color, I would not have chosen this book. And my dislike of the book is probably more personal, but hey – isn’t that what a review is for! If you don’t mind some graphic scenes, this book will have you frantically turning pages, but may leave you wanting more.
Description from Amazon:
In Four Letters you’ll learn all about three couples…
Sterling and Skye~
Skye is a spoiled little rich girl, who has never had to do more than bat her eyelashes at her father to get whatever she wanted. When she received her degree, her plan was to open an art gallery catering to the uber rich. The last thing she needed was a man getting in her way. But, there’s just something about Sterling. He’s an alpha male that gives her what she’s always craved, the ability to let someone else take control. Could Sterling be the man Skye needs to help her relinquish control and change her spoiled ways?
Asher and Lilly~
When Lilly was a small child, her parents were killed in a fire. Since the loss of her parents, she’s never truly felt loved or safe. Now that Lilly’s dream of becoming a teacher has come true, she worries that her dream of finding Mr. Right might not. That all changes the day that Asher literally runs into her in the park. Could Asher be the man to make Lilly feel safe and give her the happily ever after she’s always dreamed of?
Tanner and Adlee~
To say that Adlee had a rough childhood would be quite the understatement. When she was barely ten years old, her mother killed herself, leaving Adlee in the care of her stepfather, Paul. Paul was not a nice man. When Tanner walked into the café she was working at and witnessed the way Paul treated her, he knew he had to step in. Could Tanner be the man to prove to Adlee that she is worthy of love and help her regain her self respect?
