Love Me Not


Loved it! 😍

Sweet, Charming and a Touching Love Story. The reader is going to enjoy this book.

As I began reading the book, I couldn't relate to the opening barbecue scene. However, as the book proceeded, I should applaud the author for her amazing writing style. I could detect that there were initial books in the series, but that did not stop me from enjoying this one. The chemistry between the leading characters is sweet, charming, and their friendship gives me a warm feeling. I liked how the author introduced the leading characters for the next book and gave the reader a teaser of the romance between them. I am already looking forward to the next in the series.

While I appreciated the teaser, I felt that it took away pages that could have contributed to Kat and Rob's story. I wish the teaser had been smaller, so that I could have enjoyed and read Kat and Rob's story for a longer period. The author has touched and explored the topic of domestic, sexual and child abuse in a sensitive manner. Correlating and linking the abuse faced by women in the past and the present was done in a great way. When a reader is able to live the character through the book, it proves that the author has done a fabulous job. I have cried, smiled and laughed with the characters in the book.

The characters were homely and so easy to relate to. Rob's maturity has thoroughly impressed me. Kat's strength of character has inspired me. Hidden Springs and its inhabitants make me wish I was part of such an amazing town. The story plot was well paced and the characters were well developed. The reader will appreciate and love the efforts the author has taken in building Hannah's character. My heart goes out to her. The author has made me feel for the characters. I loved the book and look forward to future releases.
