Guest Post // Lori Ann - Book Review;

Saturday, 25 January 2014


Today I will be reviewing 'She Belongs To Me' by Carmen DeSousa, I got this book through iTunes iBooks for free. At this time you can also get this book through the Kindle app for free.
         'She Belongs To Me' is a Romantic Suspense novel, it is part of the Southern Suspense Series. It is 330 pages long, and took me about 6 hours to read.
     For a while now I've been trying to stay away from series, because I'm not wanting to get into another series at the moment. So I wasn't going to read this for that specific reason, but then I looked at the reviews, and they all said that this could be read as a stand-alone novel, because the second book takes place 8 years later, and follows a different story line.

Since my e-book version didn't have a blurb, here is one from Amazon that I trimmed down.

       "    When wealthy construction company owner and Charlotte detective, Jordan Monroe, meets Jaynee for the first time he is awestruck and determines to make her his wife. Jaynee, however, has a history she cannot easily overcome and is fearful to submit to love. Jordan succeeds in making her his wife, but five years into their marriage, he realizes she is keeping secrets. Before he can decipher her duplicity, he discovers her unconscious in their home from a gunshot would only hours after giving her an ultimatum concerning their relationship.
          With Jaynee's life hanging in the balance, the mystery of her past drives Jordan to investigate. But what appears to be an attempted suicide turns out to be something far darker. Is someone from her past stalking her? Or worse, is someone close to Jordan trying to kill them both? As Jordan edges closer to the truth, it may be deadlier than he could have ever imagined.    "

So What did I think?   5 STARS


Like: The ending. I'll explain more below.

Dislike: Nothing.
   What I loved the most about this book is definitely the ending. Not only were all the story line's wrapped up, but we were also given a look into Jaynee and Jordan's future. I feel like the epilogue was a brilliant touch, to an already perfect ending.
       It's not easy telling a story from different perspective's, but Carmen DeSousa really took it one step further with using "present day" and "how they met" moments to create, a romantic suspenseful novel.
    I really like that it's a romance novel, but it's not explicit. I really believe that everyone would love this book, even people who usually don't like romance novels. This is the type of romance novel that could be read by people of all ages, and reading levels.
  I absolutely loved the ending, it was perfect (already said that, oops). At first I wasn't planning on reading the rest of the series, but now I think I might, I'm not sure, I'll have to think about it.

 I wanted to add this quote from the very end of the book, I love it.

"And they lived.....
      Life isn't always happily-ever after, rather, loving forever, regardless." - Carmen DeSousa

    I would definitely recommend this book to anyone, it really hooked me, and I couldn't put my phone down. I kept getting mad because my battery kept getting below 10% so I had to put it on charge and stop reading.

    So that's all for today, I hope you like my little review, let me know what you think in the comments. Have you read this book? What did you think? Do you have any recommendations?
    
Stay Creative,
