Scars from her first love and the reckless lifestyle of her parents force Ember Harris to chart a new course. She favors practicality over spontaneity and rules over a broken heart.
An encounter with a musician at a local pub forces Ember into making a decision to let go or hold on for dear life as passions are unlocked and deceptions revealed.
I’ve had Ten Days of Perfect on my Kindle for so long! My Kindle account tells me I downloaded it in November last year and I finally got around to reading it at the beginning of April. Wow, I am so glad I finally made time for it.
TDoP is a love story, but it’s a love story that will break your heart.
Ember and Bo meet, fall in love in record time and THEN learn things that they should’ve known before starting their relationship. The things they learn are DEAL BREAKERS. Bo has been hiding a secret from Ember and it’s one that will tear them apart.
I loved this book so much but I was a MESS after I’d finished! The one good thing to come out of waiting so long to read it is that I could dive straight in to the follow up, Reckless Abandon, straight after finishing. I NEEDED to know what was next for Ember and Bo.
I worked out Bo’s secret very early on, I don’t know if I was meant to know it so soon. I think maybe I was, it was just not something that Ember knew. I was holding my breath a lot of the way through, just waiting for her to work things out.
I did struggle to “feel” Ember and Bo’s instant connection. I’d like to think it does happen like that but because it hasn’t happened to me it was hard to put myself in their place. It was like MEET – boom – IN LOVE! After saying that, though, I really loved their relationship and I was rooting for them the whole way through, even more so when smooth charmer Adrian turned up. Ugh! I didn’t like him!
The ending of TDoP BROKE MY HEART! It wasn’t meant to go down like that! I honestly don’t know how I would’ve managed without Reckless Abandon to move on to! I’m serious!
I LOVE Andrea Randall’s writing. It’s full of detail but easy to read at the same time. This book sucks you in and before you know it you’ve sat there and finished the book (that wasn’t just me, was it?!) The characters aren’t perfect and neither are the situations they’re in, they’re realistic (well, maybe apart from the insta-love) and people I can feel invested in.
Well done to Andrea Randall on a BRILLIANT début.
