The Five Kisses

The Five Kisses by Karla Darcy
Pages: 78

Summary (From Amazon):
If you love Regencies with humor, wit, and fun, Downton Abbey and Jane Austen you’ll love The Five Kisses! This is the first book in the Sweet Deception Regency series and there's lots more to come. The question in The Five Kisses is: can the daughter of a professor with a very small estate interest the heir to an Earl in not just love but marriage? When 13 year old Chad stands up to a bully and rescues a kitten, Gillian saves him from a beating. A thank you kiss surprises them both. If she was older than 9, she might have fallen in love with him right there. But then…" The journey from friendship to love in this traditional Regency will warm the heart of any reader. 

I started off really excited to read this book cause a lot of other book blogs recommended it, but when I actually read it I felt really disappointed. It's not that the story isn't good, I just felt incomplete and unsatisfied with the ending. 
When reading the title, I thought it'd be a cute little book with friends that fall in love, like Jason Chen's Best Friend, but it's not as cute. I felt like everything was too rushed and I felt unsatisfied with the amount of passion in the story. 
The ending was a typical happily ever after ending which just in my point of view, lacked the "meat" to make it a good story.

Check it out!

Hey guys, I'm guessing it's the wander blog flu talking, but I created a new blog. I kinda want to keep this blog book/music/review related. I was going to add inspiration/creative/rants to the blog, but then I decided otherwise. It'd be nice to have everything on one blog, but at the same time, it'd be a bit hectic with all different themes and whatnot all over the place. So, I created Simply Evie and a new alias: Evie. duh! XD I dunno, but I just love creating aliases and changing names cause in real life I can't do that, I gotta stick to my boring ol'name. So yeah, Simply Evie is going to be an inspiration/creative/rant blog and I hope you guys check it out and get to know me better!

Foreverly Obsessed,

Oh and before I forget, the link is in the side bar.

Summer Update

This is going to be really short, but just wanted to say that I'm really sorry for being so MIA the last couple of weeks. I'm at a Chinese Summer Camp in Taiwan and the schedule's packed. When we have internet time, the internet gets really slow and just sucks so the only time I really use it is when other people are busy hanging out and whatnot. I WILL that's a promise post those book reviews and new ones! I brought my Kindle and I have a ton of books that I can't wait to read and review for you! Updates ASAP <3

Foreverly Obsessed,
