Review: A Gorgeous Villain

A Gorgeous Villain A Gorgeous Villain by Saffron A. Kent
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Final Score - 4 Stars!

WarningYou will need to read the short novella that was released before reading The Gorgeous Villain - as it explains the backstory of Reed & Callie. 

Reed Roman Jackson - he is most definitely a villain, of sorts. Even when he was warning Callie away, she was like a moth caught with his flame and could not escape him.  I don't blame the poor girl - I was even screaming in my head "Give him one more chance".  Callie just could not make up her mind at times and when she did she realized certain truths that were hard for her to swallow.  These two just could not get it together.  But what's that saying? 

The path to truth love never runs smooth 

It’s taken me a sometime to give a full review - because even though I really enjoyed this book - some elements left me feeling as I was reading another book.  I loved Salem & Arrow's story and the seeds that were planted with reference to Callie and Reed in My Darling Arrow had me salivating to read this story. 

Now, I am a fan to the end of this author, and I'm very much looking forward to the next book in this series, but - I don't know.  I'm still feeling Eh? What did I just read?  Maybe I didn't click with this book as I have in the past with her others, but it was still a good read.  Just - those repetitive phrases that were used, reminded me of that more popular book everyone's read.  It was distracting and IMO took away the full impact of my enjoyment & from connecting with this book the way I wanted to. 

In any case, I can't wait to read Bronwyn's story - that has me tingling!
