I love being able to pick up an ebook at the drop of a hat through my library. Of course impulse reads aren’t always a win. Here is my review of The Admiral’s Bride by Suzanne Brockmann.
I liked the idea of this book being something different. I can’t really remember the last time I read a romance about adults with a big age difference. I’ll admit have my own list of older men I would certainly say yes to. I also was interested in the conflict they had set up.
That being said I really was consistently disappointed. The pacing was off. Things that I thought would have been more interesting kept happening off screen and then other parts of the story were just dragging out. I also didn’t really get into Jake and Zoe as a couple. They were both thinking different things than their actions and I just never really bought into them as a pair.
It was a good idea that just wasn’t executed very well. Honestly I kept waiting for it to be over. That’s why I give it one out of five stars.
