Between Dreams (Pendant Series book 1) by Cynthia Austin
This book had a really slow start. I'm not saying that's bad, but it's a matter of preference. The writing is great, and almost to descriptive at times, but it's easy to be taken away by this writer.
Now, it was about halfway into this book when it really grabbed me. I wish it had sooner, but I stuck with it and i'm glad that I did. I really love Adrian's character. He's got a really sexy vibe and totally mysterious, which I think you will love.
And Sidney left me pissed off at some moments. A bit of a doormat when it came to her long term rock star boyfriend, but I guess being that it's all she knows, it's pretty realistic when you think about it. I hated seeing her let him walk on her and charm her over and over again, but isn't that what books are supposed to do? Pull us in, make us mad, sad, happy, and take us on a ride?
Despite the way this book started, I'm glad that I decided to stick with it. It came through in the end. Now, I'll say this, it ends with a massive cliff hanger, pretty abrupt. It jarred me a bit and if not for the fact that the next book is available I would have hated the way it ended. No loose ends were really tied up, it just ends with a stunner and we are left holding the book and looking for the next page that isn't there. After a chat with the author, I discovered that originally this series was one book, at in editing it was broken down into a series. Knowing this, I can understand better why this book ended the way it did. Don't let this stop you, since book two is available. I recommend buying them both at the same time, LOL
Four stars for this one. Watch for my review of book two, coming soon.
