Originally posted at Booklovers For LifeThis was a very… hectic read. The story was all over the place, the characters weren’t very consistent… I didn’t enjoy this book very much, unfortunately. I really wanted to, since the blurb was intriguing, but everything about this book just didn’t work out for me.Sara is the kind of woman who has been waiting and planning for her wedding day since she was a little girl. But to her devastation, she’s dumped by her fiancé, and she goes to Vegas to pawn off her engagement ring. There, she meets a mysterious, attractive man named Ethan, who helps and guides her trip in Vegas. Even though they’re complete opposites – Ethan is a divorce lawyer who doesn’t believe in love – the two hit it off. And somehow they manage to get accidentally married while in Vegas.This book felt very unfinished, with lots of plot holes and little explanation. It was hard to connect with either Sara or Ethan, since their personalities were so disconnected and hard to follow. As for the plot… it was very weakly written. I’m not even sure how Sara and Ethan accidentally got hitched – very little is explained in a cohesive way in the book. It felt like everything was just thrown together, and we had to accept it for what it was.I really wish I could’ve enjoyed it more, but everything about the book felt weak. This book just didn’t work for me.Thanks to the publisher for generously providing me an ARC to review.Amazon Ebook: http://amzn.to/1FZbk0ELiked this review?

The best Kindle A Change of Plans Actual rating 2.5 I wanted to like this, I really did. The idea sounded interesting and it hinted at comedy and a steamy romance. However, even though this is only a novella, it's taken me a few days to get through.A Change of Plans started off well. I liked that it began with Sara picking up and leaving everything behind to head to Vegas to be daring. It was a bold move and I wanted to know how things would play out. Similarly, when Ethan got involved things started to become even more interesting.However, unfortunately it didn't last for me. I found things moved too slowly and there were a lot of events that felt irrelevant. From the blurb I just wanted to get to the marriage part and it seemed to take forever to arrive. When it finally did, I was slightly disappointed. Everything felt muted. Emotions weren't strong, situations were too short, details were missed, and things moved too quickly. It was a strange read for me because the first half was too slow and the second half was too quick.I don't know, maybe I would have felt different if I'd connected with the characters, but Ethan was so closed off. You never really learn anything about him, and then there's Sara who just seemed to go with the flow. After what had happened to her I expected stronger emotions. Her character seemed inconsistent with when she stood up for herself and when she didn't.As for the ending it all seemed to come out if nowhere. New threads were introduced and I felt they were under developed. Then it just ends. Things are tied up, but not satisfyingly. They're rushed and seem too easy.Overall this isn't a bad read. I know it doesn't sound like it, but is was a nice little story. It didn't draw any emotion from me and I think the pacing and timeline needs work, but it was okay. Maybe if it was longer and more developed I would have liked it better because the idea was good.
