Unveiling You Reviews
I wrote this book! I like it a lot ;)
Tell me more about you being naked. I want the sexy back. I’ll bring it back ;) Okay, Timberlake.Now I don't want to go as far as to say that the sexy was brought back. If we were to give it a rating on the scale of hotness, a ghost pepper it would be not.But a jalapeño? Sure, why not?This book was pleasantly surprising to me, on many scales, because New Adult books tend to disappoint me plot wise. But this one? This one managed to kind of pull off a somewhat decent plot. And the reason why? Because when it all comes down to it, the plot was deceptively simple. Premise: Girl takes internship to learn about her dead father. Finds hot guy who is her adversary for her internship position who happens to be her employer's grandson. Conflict: Girl lies to her employer and falls in love with her adversary. Denouement: The lies fall apart. Relationships suffer. Resolution: Neatly tied ending that solves the conflict.Really, the plot was so simple, the story should have been one catastrophe after another. But Grey managed to take that simple plot and word it in such a way that the plot points fell into place like little stepping stones that let you get from one end of a rushing river to the other. She took simplicity and made it all seem significant somehow. Was it predictable? Yes. But it wasn't boring and it wasn't far-fetched. It seemed completely realistic for what it was.But things got a little wayward with the characterization. For the most part, the best way I can think to describe it is clean. It was really clean characterization when it came to Caleb and Amy. Neither of them were trying to be something that they were not. The same went for the majority of the characters in the novel like Linus and Ingrid. But when Caleb's friends came into the picture, it was almost like a thread was loose in the or something because Brooke and Sabrina and even Nick didn't seem like complete characters. They were all over the place from nice and friendly to bitchy and jealous within 2 pages and there was never any in depth explanation as to why. I guess I was looking for a little more background, a little more angst to a story which didn't really have a lot of angsty business to begin with. It was clearly attempted, but all in all resolved much too quickly for me. I wanted a little more gut-wrenching moments, a little more emotional investment, a little more in general.That said, the book was still worth 4 stars. It had a few gun-slinger lines, which I loved because quips are totally up my alley. And the romance was definitely one of the better ones I've read in the last while, although again, everything was a little too neat and tidy for my liking so it wasn't perfect.But in the end, the surprisingly pleasing plot made up for the inconsistencies. Which is a win in my book, any day.
I really enjoyed this book, the story kept you interested and it worked out well in the end. I think it would have been better if we'd had the opportunity to hear from the man himself, what had occurred which led to the betrayal. Also if the heart to heart had included a discussion about Amy's father's regret for what he did. It ended like there was still some unfinished business (some things left unsaid.
I really liked this book! There were a few parts where I am not sure the right character's name was used...like maybe it needs to be edited again, but overall, I read it in one sitting! Hard to put down!
