Will I read more from this Author? Of course!
A beautiful story that's so much more than a romance…a story about all the different kinds of love and loyalty. I don't know why I waited so long to read this book. I ended up adding narration to this for a discounted price and I don't regret it one bit. Rob Shapiro was amazing as a narrator. He is a new fav for me.
Yes, it made me cry, but most of it was the good kind of crying. Everything about this book was amazing…as my ratings breakdown says. I wholeheartedly recommend this book.
⇝Sex Factor⇜ No, there isn't any, really.
It is not often that I immediately decide to buy a book based on a single review, but after (I believe it was) Magdalena's review for the second book of the series, I couldn't resist. It just sounded like the thing I would most definitely like, and I did.
Paul is a man with one of those faces, they blend in very easily and are often mistaken for those of others. As such, he's doing a volunteer job at a hospice as the 'granny whisperer', talking to dying patients and pretending to be their relative so they feel less lonely. That is, until one of them tries to kill him.
What follows is a very funny pursuit in which Paul, together with Nurse Brigit try to stay out of the hands of the Dublin underworld. I liked it a lot. I expected to like it, but still, there needs to be some kind of connection and luckily it was there. The characters are very witty and the there's enough making fun of the clichés that it actually doesn't matter not everything is super original. I truly felt sorry for both Paul and Brigit as their lives haven't always been easy and they made some difficult decisions.
To be honest, for me was it not the laugh-out-loud experience that other people said it was, but I did smirk from time to time, and I truly enjoyed reading it.

Forgettable characters and plots that simply didn't pull me in. I didn't care about the villain, the victims, the suspense, the main characters and their supposed "romance", the villain's motive...I didn't care about any of it.
They both started off so slow, it was a chore getting through the first couple of chapters, and despite hating not finishing things, I have to draw the line somewhere. When reading becomes a chore instead of an enjoyment, you're in trouble.
