    I received a copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.This is a very different book in many ways and I loved it There are many things covered in the book that you normally don t see or if they are mentioned they don t play a major part in the story I never knew what was going happen next because something was always getting in the way for them, but also bringing them closer together Many shocking scandals, secrets, and happy endings throughout the book that keep you hooked Thei I received a copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.This is a very different book in many ways and I loved it There are many things covered in the book that you normally don t see or if they are mentioned they don t play a major part in the story I never knew what was going happen next because something was always getting in the way for them, but also bringing them closer together Many shocking scandals, secrets, and happy endings throughout the book that keep you hooked Their love story intertwines perfectly with everything else Their love could withstand anything The ending was perfect and unexpected.Isobel is a very strong woman to have held her head high and came through everything that happened to her I admire her doing what she had to in every situation no matter how shocking it was and that she kept her head high She didn t let her father s words fully pull her down, but did need the right person to show her that she was worthy WIll did not look down on anyone and wanted to help those less fortunate no matter what I loved the way he tended to always be thinking like a doctor and how he could talk to people so easily no matter what He needed Isobel and much as she needed him at the time they met.This book does touch on many subjects that might shock some readers such as abortion, some characters sexuality, strong language, and things that could be considered erotic

    3.5 Stars Although this book came with a warning label, I had no idea it was going to be at this level of material I still felt overwhelmed I m not sure you can prepare yourself to be exposed to this kind of content I was truly shocked and surprised to read such disturbing passages and even had to skip over several lines as it was very uncomfortable to read I consider myself to be quite modern and accepting of all equalities but this is totally something else My reviews don t contain 3.5 Stars Although this book came with a warning label, I had no idea it was going to be at this level of material I still felt overwhelmed I m not sure you can prepare yourself to be exposed to this kind of content I was truly shocked and surprised to read such disturbing passages and even had to skip over several lines as it was very uncomfortable to read I consider myself to be quite modern and accepting of all equalities but this is totally something else My reviews don t contain spoilers so I don t want to go into too much detail, but let s just say even HBO would have blushed.I liked that this book took place in beautiful, picturesque Dublin, Ireland in 1880 during the Victorian Era The author does a beautiful job describing the area and time I truly felt transported and immersed in the culture.I love the in depth amount of research the author did while constructing this book It was clear she was very familiar and well versed on the culture, customs, and traditions of Ireland in the 19th Century The author provided so much detail and such vivid descriptions it made the scenes easy to picture.For the most part I liked the characters, I just didn t find them believable or realistic There also wasn t much depth or character development to them They had a story past, but it just felt flat and their involvement together seemed unlikely I would read the passage and be like yeah that would never happen it s unnatural.I liked the idea of the character arc for Isobel I liked her wanting a better life and Will wanting to help her achieve that I liked the fight Isobel had battle to keep striving to reach that better life We see over the course of the book just how damaged Isobel is and it gives even stronger meaning to her recovery However, she has just too many bubble gum and cotton candy unrealistic fillers that don t make sense or seem unlikely, over dramatic and inappropriate scenes, and a puzzling overly excess amount of explicit content that is not needed to fulfill her character demands It ends up getting messy, hurts the story, and loses respect for her as a character.There is a lot thrown into this book and a lot of roller coaster emotions There are very graphic explicit scenes that are so extremely detailed it s beyond overshare It felt inappropriate and uncomfortable.This book does touch on betrayal, survival, passion, suspense, trust, love, second chances, friendships, romance, drama, self discovery, mystery, intrigue, and so muchThere are some predictable scenes However, there are still a few unexpected twists and turns that you won t see coming All in all, even though it wasn t my favorite book, I still enjoyed reading it, and I would still recommend it as long as you are OVER 18 and okay with explicit content WARNING Please note that this novel contains sexually explicit and sensitive content and is intended for readers aged eighteen and over Disclaimer I received a complimentary copy of this book and have voluntarily provided an honest, and unbiased review in accordance with FTC regulations

    Such great fun for a setting I love and a genre I don t usually read I m a huge fan of upstairs downstairs like Downton Abbey But not big on romance Not quite sure if that s really what this is but it s definitely a major aspect.And if that wasn t enough, if I did read romance I normally wouldn t care for straight romance F F for this girl.Yet this was utterly delightful I assured the characters and the plot It was emotional, often tense, and very satisfying for those of us who love this s Such great fun for a setting I love and a genre I don t usually read I m a huge fan of upstairs downstairs like Downton Abbey But not big on romance Not quite sure if that s really what this is but it s definitely a major aspect.And if that wasn t enough, if I did read romance I normally wouldn t care for straight romance F F for this girl.Yet this was utterly delightful I assured the characters and the plot It was emotional, often tense, and very satisfying for those of us who love this setting.My only faults are that the author does a lot of telling me rather than showing or even telling and showing, or telling and telling again A good editor would tighten this up to a truly good read and shorten it enough to feel a little less meandering at points.That and it seems the stakes rise and rise then Just kinda stop The end is a very long wrap up that slidesinto slice of life This isn t so bad but it definitely doesn t follow a story Arc properly.The author is good at character and emotion and many other things, but would stand to study some basics of storytelling as I ve mentioned Not than anything a good developmental editor would be great Copy was good Almost no typoes and good grammar But those are expensive, so maybe at least some good beta readers and maybe a good author swap or two with someone with strong writing and storytelling experience.Regardless of these picks I enjoyed the book intensely and have already downloaded him two.Thanks for a great read in an underserved setting And in KU to boot Yay

    This was my first read by this author This story was set in 19th century Ireland Isobel and Will managed to pull me into their story in the first half of the book The characters were developed The story was moved along at a believable and moderate pace You can fell the despair by Isobel and she kept facing challenges with no end in sight She and Will had a cute bit of banter going on as well The relationship was a necessity to Will and you can feel his determination The author has spent This was my first read by this author This story was set in 19th century Ireland Isobel and Will managed to pull me into their story in the first half of the book The characters were developed The story was moved along at a believable and moderate pace You can fell the despair by Isobel and she kept facing challenges with no end in sight She and Will had a cute bit of banter going on as well The relationship was a necessity to Will and you can feel his determination The author has spent time or did her research well in regards to Ireland and its scenery and customs Both were described in vivid detail.The author brings in several twists and issues into the story including rape, sexually transmitted disease, domestic violence and lots of sex explicit sex I think the way these and other topics were introduced caused the story to get away from the author at times You no longer knew what to expect and it caused the development of the characters to cease In addition to these elements, the story dealt with betrayal, a touch of romance amid all the sexually explicit scenes and dramatic reactions that didn t seem to quite fit All in all, I think this was an interesting plot that kind of got lost in the second half of the book If you are over 18 and not easily offended by explicit content which the book does warn you about , you should read and let me know what you think Note I received an advanced copy in exchange for my honest feedback

    Ridiculous This book is a mess From what began as a very good beginning, it is a shame that it evolved into such a convoluted and ridiculous story.Set in Victorian Era Ireland, a young doctor goes on a drinking binge with friends and ends up at a brothel where he meets a prostitute he becomes interested in They eventually begin writing letters back and forth The first third of the story is actually very good as the two get to know one another If the author had stayed with this it might have Ridiculous This book is a mess From what began as a very good beginning, it is a shame that it evolved into such a convoluted and ridiculous story.Set in Victorian Era Ireland, a young doctor goes on a drinking binge with friends and ends up at a brothel where he meets a prostitute he becomes interested in They eventually begin writing letters back and forth The first third of the story is actually very good as the two get to know one another If the author had stayed with this it might have been a good book.Unfortunately this is not the case as the story, very rapidly, includes pornography including child pornography and pedophilia , murder, syphilis, dementia, rape, domestic violence, assault, homosexuality On and on and on in the most ridiculous, convoluted, overdramatic plot I ve ever read It boggles the mind It is hard to keep up as even harder to imagine how such a good beginning turned so bad I wouldn t consider a recommendation I wouldn t know where to begin
