Be My December
– Rachel Brookes
Genre : New Adult, Romance Contemporaine
Notation : ♥♥♥
I just finished Be My December by Rachel Brookes.
At first, when I read the synopsis, it didn’t really appeal to me but then I read reviews and got curious. I won this book in a giveaway, for which I thank the author again.
If I had to describe Eden and Ky’s story in one word, it would be : INTENSE.
Eden faced a more than traumatic experience when she was 20, since then it had been difficult for her to live as she used to so she keeps pretending to be someone different everytime and comes up with rules that seems really strange at the beginning but well, we kind of get it at some point…
Eden was a nice character, not an amazing one, but a nice one. She didn’t particularly annoy me but I didn’t especially loved her either.
Ky, on the other hand was amazing. I loved his character from the beginning and his alpha male side…oof…
I loved the other characters as well : Josh, Ashlyn, Ky’s family, Douglas…
What I liked
Be My December is a sweet, sexy and full of angst story.
What I liked less
To be honest, it’s not the kind of book I particularly like to read (I mean I like humorous books). But this one was nice enough.
I would have liked for certain things to have been different. For example some scenes which I found unnecessary, as well as some drama which could have been avoided, and certain dialogues which were a bit too much and cheesy…
But in overall, I recommend for readers who like a good romance, full of angst.
Have you read it ? What did you think ?
More details :
I knew the exact moment I’d become a ‘yes’ girl.
December 16th, a cold winter’s night, four years ago.
The night my innocence was stolen, the night I made the mistake of saying no—a mistake I’d never make again.
The dream of a ‘happily ever after’ was now a locked away myth. I promised myself that I’d never return to the place of my worst nightmare, that I’d never let anyone get close, but then again, I never thought I’d meet someone like him.
The intense, confident and beautiful Ky Crawford.
I had no plans to become someone’s Prince Charming.
I couldn’t be. I refused to be. My plan was simple—do whatever it takes to correct my biggest mistake, my one regret that now controlled my life.
I was on track. I had plans, but then everything changed when I saw her—the girl in the red jacket, the girl who I was told couldn’t say no.
The reserved yet stunning Eden Rivers.
A girl who can’t say no.
A guy who craves redemption.
A chance encounter?
It all comes down to this.
