So many people adored this read that I’m afraid I will get flack for this review. I’m giving it 3-stars, so I didn’t hate it. But the problem for me was how slow to start this story was. It took me so impossibly long to get drawn into the story that I almost gave up. In the first half, the characters were superficial, so I didn’t feel all that invested in them. Evangeline is so tiringly naïve that the repeated lack of awareness is exhausting.
However, there is something very special and enthralling in Jack. I need to get to the bottom of his story and the secrets he’s keeping. But the book ended in such a way that I cannot, for the time being. I just wish that some of the plot points had been resolved because this book is just a setup book for future books (which, for me, is an awful thing to do to readers).
About the Book:
For as long as she can remember, Evangeline Fox has believed in true love and happy endings…until she learns that the love of her life will marry another.
Desperate to stop the wedding and to heal her wounded heart, Evangeline strikes a deal with the charismatic, but wicked, Prince of Hearts. In exchange for his help, he asks for three kisses, to be given at the time and place of his choosing.
But after Evangeline’s first promised kiss, she learns that bargaining with an immortal is a dangerous game — and that the Prince of Hearts wants far more from her than she’d pledged. He has plans for Evangeline, plans that will either end in the greatest happily ever after, or the most exquisite tragedy…
