Note: I received a review copy of this book free from BookLook Bloggers. The review posted below is based on my personal thoughts while reading the book.

My thoughts:

A DNF rating for this book. The characters are all forgettable, and the story has weird names, weird happenings that they couldn't really hold my attention. One major issue I had with this was the magical elements of the story. Sorry, not into that thing.
    
There are others who loved the book, you might want to read them HERE.


About the book:

Prince Stephen came to America to escape responsibility. But what he found complicates his life more than ever.

Corina Del Rey is happy with her life in Melbourne, Florida. She spends her days engrossed in her career as a journalist and has her sights set on climbing the corporate ladder if for no other reason, to distract herself from her dissolving family. But when she is confronted with the past she fought so hard to put behind her, she struggles to make sense of her future.

Prince Stephen of Brighton Kingdom has moved on since the tragic death of his buddies in Afghanistan. A star professional rugby player, he has no intention of looking over his shoulder at what could ve been.

But when a notice arrives in the mail requiring his and his wife s appearance before the courts to dissolve their marriage, he must deal with the questions rumbling around in his heart. He thought his marriage had been annulled long ago, but his memories of Corina Del Rey remain close. Does he still love her? Can he even find her? Above all, can he tell her the truth about that fateful night in Afghanistan seven years ago? If he does, he might really lose her forever."

Status : Blogger on SICK LEAVE



Let me start by telling you guys that I will be AWAY for a while. I'm going in for a tonsillectomy this weekend and although this is only a minor operation, I think my blog posts will be a little sporadic.

I have been having health issues the past months. Just February last year, I was diagnosed to have endometriosis which my doctors took so long to figure out. I've been having mild and sometimes severe pains in my pelvic area. Doctors from private and public hospitals cannot exactly identify what is causing this pain as my lab tests/ultrasound wouldn't show any abnormalities inside me. And then one day, I literally can't move my whole body. Immediately after I told them the pain is everywhere and one movement would cause severe pain in my whole body, including my head, they took a picture of my pelvic area again, this time using CT scan and finally they saw something! So that was my first operation. Just yesterday, after I got my clearance for the tonsillectomy (after months of check-ups and tests), I found out that this endometriosis is growing again and I will deal with that after the tonsillectomy.

O---kay! So since I have two health issues to deal with, I will stop accepting review requests I think until the end of August. For authors waiting for my book review, reading status can be found at the right side of my blog. 

That's it and wish me luck!
