My Comments :
I have been a fan of Tilly Bagshawe books since I read "Sidney Sheldon's Mistress of the Game". After that, I have been buying her books non-stop or at least on those that is of afforable price to me.
Found this book at Bookxcess last week . The synopsis sound interesting.
The story was intersting and fun. However, the plot was rather predictable to me solely because I had read too many of her books. For new readers or fans, am sure this is a gripping read . After all who wouldn't wanna know what happens when a woman wants to seek revenge.
The pace was a bit slow for me as the first 3/4 of the book was mostly about Sasha and how she claws her way back to begin a new life after being "devastated" by what Theo Dexter did to her.
The juicy parts only begins atthe last quarter of the books.
For me this may not be one of her best work but it certainly captured enough interest for me to finish it in a few sitting.
I didn't like the ending as I don't feel like they deserve what they have got as in the process they had inadverttently hurt another person and I don't mean Theo Dexter.
Hopefully, the plot of her new books would not be so predictable.
because I had read too many of her books, I found that the plot was rather predictable for me
