I have decided to not finish reading this book. I stopped at about 91%, when it became clear that the book would not come to a satisfying conclusion for me. I felt that I should only be just over the middle of the book with everything that I was still expecting to happen. Additionally, there was a backwards development in the female main character. I could just feel this coming to an end that would get me so emotionally down that I would get close to being in a similar state to her.
For not having finished the novel, I need to give it the lowest rating possible. I must admit that, as far as I have read this book. It hurts a bit and does not feel right. I did enjoy the book as far as I got. Even if the translation was very poor, which, however, cannot all be the translator, but must also be the authors fault.
Es besteht die Möglichkeit, dass ich das Buch nicht zu Ende gelesen hätte, hätte ich es nicht gewonnen und würde zumindest einen Kommentar schulden. Vielleicht hätte ich es aber auch einfach gelesen, weil mich das Cover so sehr angesprochen hat und ich eigentlich sehr aufgeregt über den Gewinn war. Die Kurzbeschreibung auf dem Buchdeckel hat mich direkt angesprochen.
Leider habe ich in dem Buch nicht das gefunden, was mir der Buchdeckel versprochen hat und der Schreibstil war definitiv nicht überzeugend genug, mich von dem Unerwarteten zu beeindrucken.
Zoe is the single mother of three-and-a-half year old Olivia. Olivia’s father is Andrew with whom Zoe had a no strings attached affair while he was in town. When he left, she had not only fallen pregnant but also in love with him.
Years later, he returns, as the fiancé of her former neighbour and enemy Ashley. Now Zoe has to fight her feelings for Ashley, for feelings for Andrew, and either hide Olivia or find a way of justifying keeping her from him.
