I enjoyed this book for what it was, by that I mean it was simple. It was simple in the sense that it didn’t take more than 7 brain cells to get through it. Eh, that sounded a bit harsh. I didn’t mean it to.
Things may get a little messy with this one but to be fair, the book his hella messy.
Possession by Jaimie Roberts is the type of book you read out of boredom, for shits and giggles. It’s not something that will ease your soul or make you feel like you just read something amazing and this author is going place. No offense to Jaimie.
Let’s here what the author has to say about her book…
On my fourteenth birthday, I was promised to a very wealthy man… A domineering man. A powerful man. On that day, the first of two transactions were made with my very unloving parents.
I became his possession.
Something to own.
Something to keep.
An object intended only for his desire, his pleasure, and his … indulgence.
Although promised to this man, I at least remained safe … untouched … pure. I was to be his and his alone.
On my eighteenth birthday, the second transaction took place.
But he came for me.
Now, I’m his. He owns my body and my soul.
And, as if all of that wasn’t enough, he wants to own my heart too.
I’m trying to resist him—trying to fight that irresistible monster inside of him. But, as with everything else in my life, nothing is ever that easy.
When I finished this book on my Kindle, I was surprised to see how many books Jaimie Roberts has written. This book felt like it was written by an amature. I mean no disrespect when I say this and to a certain degree, it’s a compliment, because I did enjoy the book. I finished it thinking, she has the potential to get better with time, not great but better. Then when I looked into her other work, I was like, “Say, what?! She’s been writing for awhile.” I never would have thought that. To find out she’s already written a shit ton of books, I was surprised.
But because I enjoyed it and her books are free on Kindle Unlimited, I will was utilize her books as fillers – you know those book you read in between really good, soul aching books.
The story line was cute but I NEVER felt a connection with the main characters, I NEVER felt invested in their lives. It was like hearing gossip at the beauty or barber shop – you hear it but you don’t really care about the outcome.
Even as I’m writing this review I can’t think of much to share with you regarding the story line because it was so basic. Let me break it down for you (and me).
- Boy meets girl.
- Girl meets boy.
- Girl too young for boy so he waits until she is older.
- Boy becomes obsessed with girl for some non-existed reason.
- Boy makes sure girl never dates or has sex with anyone until he becomes of age.
- Boy marries girl.
- Girl runs away.
- Boy finds girl.
- Girl is pregnant.
- Boy gives girl space to “find herself”.
- Girl realizes she loves boy.
- Boy and girl get back together.
- Boy and girl have baby and live happily ever after.
That about sums it up folks. It’s basically what the synopsis says in caveman terms.
That’s all I got for that one, I’m not going to spend hours reviewing this one and creating graphics for it because, like I said, it’s a filler.
It’s time to clean up my mess and get nice and pretty again.
