3 Don’t Worry, Be Happy Crowns
There are so many things that I love about this book. The writing is good, Parker is a dream, and I feel true sympathy for Kenra. I rooted for these two to find a way to be together from the minute I read the synopsis, and Meagan Brandy also delivers a host of secondary characters who I adore and want to know more about in upcoming books.
I am sure your wondering then why the 3 crown/star review. At the end of the day, the pacing is too slow for me. Readers will figure out pretty early why Kenra chooses to leave Parker time and time again, and Meagan Brandy does show us glimpses of these moments to prove our conclusions to be true and to create sympathy for the heroine, but I needed more of those moments. I needed the villain to come into the story sooner to shake things up. His appearance back in their lives pushes Parker to become a real hero and chase who he really wants, and it makes Kenra develop that backbone she has needed for most of her life. These two characters are the characters I wanted to see sooner. I wanted more time with them and less time with this uncertainty in the beginning. I also wanted to feel the chemistry between them, and I really didn’t. The few times they were intimate were hot, but that never translated to outside of the bedroom for me.
Will I read this author again? Absolutely. I enjoyed the premise of the book, the characters, and the idea behind it. The pacing ultimately just didn’t work for me.
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
After months of silence, here she stands on my front porch, waiting to be let in again. But it’s the same play every time, and I know how this ends – I give her all I have and she carries it with her on the way back to him.
I should turn her away, but I won’t. Couldn’t do it if I tried.
Because no matter how many times she pops back up, pulls me in and drags me under, it will never be enough. I’ll always want more.
More of her.
More for us.
And she’ll always choose him.
