I did not expect this book to be what it turned out to be. Quite frankly, I didn’t know what I was expecting. But this book took me by surprise and I loved it. I’ve sort of been in a reading slump and hence hadn’t touched a book in the whole month but I couldn’t sleep one night and decided to read this. And oh my God!
Firstly, I would like to point out the highly vivid descriptions the author paints, the wonderful, beautiful writing style she uses. I honestly loved how she described things, scenes, emotions. Secondly, the plot line—-wow. It wasn’t weak, and the romance didn’t felt unnecessary… it was actually a vital part of the story. The story was well paced.
It wasn’t quite action packed, but it kept me on the edge of my seat (bed?) still. I wanted to know more and I just turned page after page. I liked how each of the Swan Sisters had been given their own personality.
There’s this plot twist too (one that I saw coming- but loved nonetheless). I liked the character of Rose, the mc’s best friend…. she didn’t vanish and appear when it suited the story. She actually had her own personality.
Bo Carter, smol, cute, hot, hurting boi. He was doing what he felt right and I loved how he started helping around the island! It was great knowing as his backstory was revealed (which lead to anGST later on). The ending left me satisfied too, a big feat lol.
Also, I liked that the book wasn’t longer than necessary, didn’t feel stretched out. Had amazing plot line,writing style and characters. Hence, I’ve decided to give it 5/5 stars. Ya’ll should read if you’re looking for a standalone novel with supernatural stuff, curse and a bitter sweet romance.
