In an attempt to save him from himself, Dilvan's Sri Lankan mother forces him into an arranged marriage. He's furious, but it's either marry...or get cut off from the family fortune. Dilvan is a much sought after male model and makes good money, but his extravagant lifestyle requires millions, so marry he does. And, he has to stay married for one year, with NO outside affairs. Enraged over the sudden turn his life has taken, Dilvan decides if he has to be miserable, then so will his new wife, Gabrielle, and with any luck she'll leave long before the year is over.
The man is a monster! I won't go into details, but the emotional and mental abuse he subjects his wife to is nauseating! It's also stressful enough to send her through two miscarriages that he doesn't even know about. Gabrielle is so sweet, non-confrontational, speaks to him only when spoken to and never looks him in the eye. Why does she put up with him? Her family needed the money given to her by Dilvan's mother to marry him. (Personally, I still would have swung on him to at least make him back off. But, I cannot stand a bully.)
Dilvan's family has suspicions about what goes on in his home, so when he's leaving town for a photo shot, his mom arranges to have his cousin, Tyson, stay at his home to "keep an eye on things". Dilvan doesn't like it one bit, afraid of what Gabrielle might say in his absence, but goes anyway. After coming to Gabi's aid during a medical emergency, she and Tyson become close. She also spills the beans to her mother-in-law and is moved out of Dilvan's house...and into Tyson's. SERIOUSLY??? Dilvan gets a HUGE revelation of his own and rushes home to find out the truth.
Things really pick up from there, and along the way, Gabrielle finds her spine. Good for her!
My only issues with this great story is Gabrielle's age - 21, and being caught in this "semi" triangle. I just don't feel she has the finesse OR can develop it yet for all that she needs to do. Her actions leave both men feeling betrayed, and while we couldn't even begin to care less about Dilvan's "feelings", Tyson is every woman's dream and has already been badly hurt emotionally. I am definitely #Team Tyson, and I want what's best for Gabi - I just don't feel SHE is the best thing for him - not in her current state.
She has found her spine, maybe she finds some attitude next! Things will definitely get interesting.
When I read the preview of this book I was so excited. I love the good old fashion drama in a romance novel without someone
on the run for their life or needing body guards because someone wants them dead! The characters were strong and believable.
Fell in love with Tyson. He was a strong alpha male confident enough to show compassion and empathy. Gabrielle was young
with the low self esteem you would naturaly see in an abused woman. Even Dilvan being the misunderstood spoiled abuser
was spot on. A great job was done building all the characters in order for us to be able to relate to them. I enjoyed this book
from the moment I started to read. Couldn't put it down from start to finish. Absolutely loved all the POVs. I love reading what
the characters are thinking about and have to say!!! That being said peeps if you're like me and need a HEA this is not the book
for you. Yep, that's right. Believe it or not after all that wonderful drama the guy doesn't get his girl. There were no reviews for
this book for me to read. Because if someone would have written this in their review I wouldn't have bought this book. Sorry
Ms Martin need my HEA. Such a shame. Could have been a wonderful book.
I was intrigued enough, however, to take the plunge. I am very happy I did. Admittedly, it was hard to get through some of the scenes with Dilvan and Gabrielle in the beginning. He was truly a horrible man. How could he possibly redeem himself? I still don't think that he can.
Along comes Tyson. The complete opposite of Dylan. Exactly what was needed to turn it around from a tragedy to a love story. I love everything about Tyson and I am rooting for him and Gabrielle.
Gabrielle has been through a lot for her young age and her story is heartbreaking but I was glad to see that she came into her own. Although I find that her situation could be considered a bit unrealistic, I do not think it is out of the realm of possibility.
It was a little disappointing to learn that I have to wait around for a part two. I think the story could have been wrapped up in one book. With that being said, however, I am more than ready to hit that 1 click when book 2 is released!
This was my first novel by this author and I am impressed! The characters were very well developed and the story was told in a way that captured my interest from beginning to end. I look forward to reading others.
