Devoted - The Complete Series: A BWWM Romance Boxset by Sadie Black
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
this was an emotional read but with a happy ending. who doesn't love those?
one mistake and she was kicked out of the house at 17. 13 years later she finds herself back in her father's church being the maid of honor to her best friend. she feels uneasy and would rather skip the whole thing altogether. only the best man has his eyes set on her. their first meeting some years ago didn't result in much but he was never able to forget her. both having their own demons and past it's a rocky road to happiness.
this was well written. sometimes a character missed a bit of backbone but it wasn't a major deal-breaker reading-wise. the only bigger thing i found a bit harder to accept is how the 2 y old was written. she was very outspoken at at some points she didn't "feel" like being two years old but like +6, especially with some of the topics that were discussed. i don't belief in sugarcoating things,not even to my own kids. however you do adjust your vocabulaire a bit so it's age appropriate, more understandable. as is, it sometimes felt they were talking to an equal, not a toddler.

- I'm a rookie writer enjoying the flow of words sprouting out of my fingers. Sometimes it goes easy, at other times it's a real struggle. I love and crave any kind of feedback, good or bad. I write when I can, but a husband, two kids, 4.2 cats (aging from 15 years to 4 months) do take up most of my time. Yet I found the time to try out something I never thought I was good at. I started writing. I came to love it and enjoy the new friendships I've made with fellow writers I simply adore (well I like the writers, but adore their work *grins*)
