Review by Anniek
Abbie Bennet is a sweet young girl. She's been raised in a secure home and she leaves the nest to live together with her best friend at the age of 20. Abbie is someone who likes her peace and quiet. She enjoys reading romance novels, drinks no alcohol, has a big loyal heart and loves to paint and sketch. When her friends persuade her to go clubbing she meets Valentine. He is the singer of a band. She is not looking for love and absolutely not looking to fall in love with a bad boy. Even though they hardly talked to each other she's lost from the moment she laid eyes on him.
When Valentine spots Abbie in the crowd he falls in love with her instantly. He is not the ultimate bad boy that everybody thinks he is. OK..he is married and getting divorced, he has a young son and he rides a bike but he has a good heart. Losing his mother has formed him and he truly wants to do good. He and Abbie fall madly in love together and can’t be apart from each other for very long.
You should think that there would be nothing in this world that could separate Abbie and Valentine! Well, think again...
I loved this book from the very beginning. Abbie is such a sweetheart, so I could relate to her very easily. She deserves to be loved and she deserves to be cherished. When she shares her dreams for the future with Valentine they discover that they are not on the same page.
In the beginning I liked Valentine a lot too. I liked the way he treats Abbie and how he makes her feel special every single day. During the story I found out that he has more flaws than I expected. I started to dislike him because of the choices he makes. This book finishes with an open ending, leaving it to the reader to speculate on what will happen next, please I hope that I am wrong about my thoughts. If my thinking is right than that would devastate Abbie and I sincerely wonder if she would recover. I can't wait to find out what will happen next...
