About the Author
Violet Haze is a big fan of writing & reading romance. The autistic mother of one, she currently lives in Ohio and is self-employed. When not working or writing, she spends her days reading, procrastinating, & listening to her son play video games she doesn’t understand, at all.
I was pleasantly surprised with this read and in fact a little taken by it. When I finally finished, I turned off my iPad and let out a soft sigh; not really sure why I did. Perhaps it was because the book left an impression, a mark, a trace, a brand. I didn’t think I would have this kind of reaction. I felt like I needed to cry; not because I was sad, but rather happy and proud of the ending.
At first, the book was a little hard to get into. I wasn’t a fan of Elizabeth; she rubbed me the wrong way, and I didn’t like Stephan too much either. But as the story progressed, I became engrossed and trapped within. The love story between Elizabeth and Stefan is not your average “teeny- bopper” romance. In fact, it was rather tragic; filled with despair, heart-ache, betrayal, and lies. I deeply felt that they were made for each other and damn, I got suckered right into their little love affair.
Then, Dr. Simon Worthington comes strolling in like “hot stuff”. I mean, I could just feel the sex-appeal radiating off of him..from a book!! Holy smokes, I was a “goner”. I never thought in my wildest dreams that the game “Simon Says” could be so erotic and head-spinning. Right, when I was on Stefan’s team, Simon pulls this move! Simon is a tremendous character in the story. He is genuine, understanding, nurchuring, and just a good and humble man.
Overall, this was a great debut from C.S. Janey and I look forward to reading her future work. I highly recommend this and mark this on my list as “Approved”.
