Shygirl: Reading After Midnight

I will read anything I can get my hands on. Seriously.

 Most books I read are reviewed for Harlequin Junkie, but I'll have an occasional independent or author requested review that I'll post.

Currently reading

Nine of Stars: A Wildlands Novel

Primal Heat: A Paranormal Shapeshifter Werejaguar Romance (The Shadow Shifters)

Solid Story, But What The Heck Happened With The Ending?!

Falling - Jane Green

‘There is something about Dominic. About all of this, that feels…right. From the moment he first put his hand on the small of her back, entirely innocently, a gentlemanly gesture to guide her through the garden gate, she felt she had come home.’

 

What. A. Story. Falling ended up being totally different than I honestly started off thinking it would be. And an hour after I’ve finished reading, I’m still not really sure what to think, other than Jane Green has yet again taken me on a roller coaster ride of emotions.

 

I will get this out of the way now: If you’re expecting a straight up contemporary romance-type ending with a HEA full of hearts and flowers, nope. Not gonna happen. This is chick lit (women’s fiction) so things don’t follow the same pattern. But…things did work out in a raw, realistic manner, with sort of a HFN (happy for now) befitting today’s modern world. And I will warn readers that the major change in Emma’s world takes place in the last five percent of the book! So needless to say, my mind was still reeling after I was done reading this story, trying to sort through it all.
