Synopsis

Haven

I felt like I was living in a prison while watching Raine Carson from my window, studying his sexy, tanned, and muscular physique for six long months. From inside of my house, he was perfect.

Then I found out everything looked different from afar. Raine, a blunt and hot tempered man was living a life he wasn’t proud of, and I found myself oddly attracted to the sickening reality he opened my eyes to.

Raine

She thought I’d fall for her seductive ploy and scarlet-glossed lips. She was right. Every person in this small town had something negative to say about Haven Leigh’s life—the girl who had been handed everything on a silver platter. I ignored the rumors, and instead, searched for her truths.

While struggling with disabling side-effects left behind by my coke-addict mother, Haven became the hope I needed. She was the good I wanted to be.

But, as it turns out, she was the trouble I should have stayed away from.

My Review – 3.75 Stars

I’m a bit on the fence about my feelings regarding this book. Overall, I liked it. It was a little slow moving in the beginning. But the author needed us to see how Raine and Haven’s relationship started and how it fell apart. I thought the story line was well thought out and realistic. I liked how the author wove pieces of the past throughout the book to allow a glimpse into conversations rather than internal monologues. I also enjoyed the criminal element and subterfuge. However, unlike some other reviewers, I saw the twist coming a mile away. But I have an eye for these things; it’s why my hubby doesn’t care to watch crime shows with me.

In terms of the characters, I thought Raine had depth. He was strong, level-headed, and caring. However, I struggled with Haven’s character. Yes, she was young, but I felt like she gave in too easily to the pressures from her family until Raine came back into her life in the second half. I understand her capitulation to some extent, but I think she took too long trying to right the wrongs of her family’s past. In general, I just didn’t warm up to her.
