A Kiss Before Dawn Reviews
Halfway through this book I really wished it was a paperback rather than an e-book so I could start seriously skimming because Emily annoyed me so much.Warning Possible Spoilers!This is a girl who for the last eight years has lived with and enjoyed a close relationship with her brother and his wife Diedre. Yet when she gets blackmailed and it concerns her brother, does she do the sensible thing and sit him down and lay it all out for him. No, that would be using common sense and I think in this case such a thing is simply too common. No instead she has to "save" everyone from the possibility that the blackmailer has a genuine claim (because he's so trustworthy???).For me Emily was borderline TSTL. She acts immaturely on just about every occasion. She knows that she acts rashly, but does this mean that she tries not to - no. She knows that her brother or Peter can help but it's simply too much for her to risk (???) to confess the whole situation.There was a twist (that had some heavy hints) as to a mastermind behind the blackmail and this was an interesting detail, but for me the climax and resolution lacked.Personally I thought Peter could do better.
I've been looking for a story about jewel and thievery and when I saw this at a second hand bookstore, there's no doubt I gotta read it. My interest quickly dwindled as reading that the thief was actually the heroine. Now the main problem of the hero is actually finding who the thief is and then it's case closed. I just don't see how exciting it can be when the major part of the story is about Emily trying to "help" Peter. Emily is busy putting a mask on when she's with Peter. There isn't much action, except for the prologue there is only one detailed scene on Emily stealing a brooch. The bottom line is make me care for what's happening. Apparently, the scenes of former characters in previous book will not give the edge of making a reader invested. The love scenes though tastefully done seemed bland. I couldn't feel the tension between them. The action and romance certainly lacked. For the sake of the GR challenge, I just have to finish this.
Se me hizo un poco cansado eso de que los protagonistas se la pasen negando sus sentimientos, ok el es un hijo de una prostituta que se ganaba la vida como carterista pero ya no, ahora es un agente de Bow Street y muy bueno. Asi que no siente que sea digno de la hermana de un Conde aun que ella nunca ha dicho que le importe. Punto a favor la protagonista es fuerte e independiente.Por lo demas una mas del monton, predecible.
I loved this book! I thought it was the perfect sequel to A Kiss in the Dark, which featured the MCs as children and secondary characters. Peter was still the compelling hero and Emily still the willfull heroine that had a tendancy to get into trouble. A true damsel in distress novel that had great chemistry and a good story line. Great read :)
