Review: Disasterous by E.L. Montes
After struggling with the loss of yet another person so dear to her heart, Mia Sullivan, transforms her frustration and loneliness, into focusing on her future career. As the top of her class at Harvard Law, she’s nervous and excited, when given the opportunity of a summer extern position at one of the top firms in Boston. Her new boss is young, extraordinarily handsome, and the successful, Marcus DeLuca. Slowly she begins to fall for him, but as she caves in to his charms, she begins to discover he is keeping something from her.
Marcus DeLuca is living two lives: one that involves his successful career and the other that could potentially ruin his entire reputation. Every day is a stressful and hectic environment with his busy schedule. His secret could jeopardize not only his life but everyone he loves. That’s why he has no extra room for a serious, romantic relationship, but after meeting Mia he cannot resist her. She is innocent, humble, and pure, the total opposite of him. She distracts him from all of his deep, dark secrets. He knows once Mia finds out the things he has done and who he truly is, she will never want to look at him again. Deep down he knows he must stay away but he can’t.
Mia and Marcus are heading down a path of love, lies, heart break and betrayal. Can their love conquer all or will it end?
Disastrous is spoken through Mia's POV. She takes us on a journey though her crazy relationship with the hot and desirable Marcus.
Marcus is hot.....and I mean really hot!! Bad boy pushed to the ultimate limit. Who wouldn't fall for this man?? But the price to pay?? I don't know if I could.
I really enjoyed to push and pull of Mia and Marcus' relationship.
I had a really hard time with all of the jumping around this book did. One minute I'm in this scene...and I don't think its over....but it is. Hmmmm... Just unfinished. I wanted to know more.
It also killed me that entire conversations were overlooked. Such as the really important conversations between Mia and Jeremy. She had to tell him something extremely important and we get no dialogue--just a narrative of the conversation.
Overall, Okay book. I enjoyed reading it. I just wanted more. More character development, more character interaction, more conversations and less of the narrative.
