Book 1 in the Tower series.
Ok, so I read the blurb on this book and was immediately interested. The premise was a good one. Uniquely the CEO is a woman, there's a love triangle, suspense and mystery. I thought it was right up my street; sadly I was wrong.
I am not going to give you a detailed summary of this book. What I will say though is that this had the potential to be a really good read. Unfortunately it just fell short on several fronts.
The characters were okay... Evangeline was everything you would expect from a CEO type of character, she unfortunately wasn't overly likeable. Angelo the suitor was pretty hot, but a little smarmy in my opinion. I did however love Axel; hot, loyal and alpha - I would have just liked to have seen more of him.
The blurb hinted at a love triangle; that never really even started in my opinion. I found this a shame as that could have added width to a very narrow story. One of the main themes is the relationship between Evangeline and Angelo. For me, it was too instant, especially for a woman who proclaims to avoid relationships. Even when we find out the reason for this, it is sort of easily skirted over; again a shame. I also found her complete trust in Angelo strange. She doesn't want to know his background, even though she is being stalked.
The main focus of the book is the stalker element. This is probably the best part of the book, however I quickly worked out who was doing the stalking and when it culminated it felt rushed.
I would at this point urge the author to look at numerous editing issues. They didn't distract from the story, but they were there all the same.
This wasn't an awful book by any means. It just didn't float my boat. We are lucky to have an array of brilliant and memorable books in this genre; unfortunately this for me wasn't one of them.
