Once upon a time, there lived a best-selling author who wrote about the miracle of true love and finding your forever soul mate. And that was thanks to Elizabeth. His muse…his one and only…his soon to be ex-wife.
It’s been six months since the love of his life tore out his heart and set it on fire, and because of this, the “author” hasn’t written a single word—his mind is drier than the Sahara Desert.
That unfortunate fool? That’s me.
My name is Jayden Evans or, as my readers know me, J.E. Sparrow. I’m one of the world’s most adored authors, but now, the only thing beloved is a bottle of whiskey and the unspeakable nasties I somehow find myself in.
But this life of depravity is growing old fast. I need a change. And that comes when I meet Carrie Bell—the woman who stirs something in me I thought long dead.
From the moment we met, I knew she was different. Could she be the one to end this drought? I suppose there is only one way to find out.
Paris. Two strangers in the city of love. What can go wrong?
*I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
I’m going to be blunt, it was really difficult to get through most of this book. I almost DNF’d but as this was an ARC I persevered. I found it very difficult to connect to Jayden as he was an arrogant arse for the most part and his all is scheming made liking him at all a difficult task.
I did like Carrie she was quirky and fun, although I’m struggling to see what she saw in Jayden. Their romance is a very fast rollercoaster ride, lots of ups and downs and a few secrets along the way.
Now the reason I have given this 3 stars and not the 2 I was originally going to give is because of the ending. It really did redeem this story for the most part, as it gave a full explanation as to why the story had been so hard to get through.
My Rating: 3/5 🌟🌟🌟
