Liam and Gwen – Entirely Yours | By Tania De Melo
About the Author
Liam and Gwen – Entirely Yours is the first book of The Adair Series written by Tania De Melo. The author herself is a great fan of romance novels and Samuel L Jackson!
I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
Gwyneth had an unusual upbringing in her home. Just when she thought she was going to steer her life into being her own self, her life is turned upside down when her family wants her to move in to the remotely small town, Emerson. Here she is Gwen and is forced to start her life on a fresh slate unquestioningly. As Gwen settles into her new life making new friends and relations, she finds herself attracted to the Detective Liam Adair. Both of them have a past. Will they be able to share their love and truly be each other’s despite all their emotional baggage? That is what you will find out in this book.
Narrative and plot
Characters and Conflict
However, there were certain things in the book that I took issue with. For example, I am not a great advocate of stories with a notable age difference ( People say Twilight but it was a fantasy and could be argued that the logic was different in that world.) But when you’re not in the realm of fantasy and your characters are people you relate to from every day life, it’s kind of a big deal. In its defence, the book itself addresses the issue but I got the feeling it is romanticising the notion which I couldn’t get on board with.
The thriller was built up nicely but I wanted it to be prolonged more and played at. Perhaps it’s just me who wants more from a well placed story. But the dark part of the book developed and ended too hastily considering how it was built-up. Also I wanted to see a lot more things unfolding between Liam and Gwen.
Overall, I enjoyed the book. It was a good mix of suspense and a central romance along with several blossoming love stories for the supporting characters. I’m sure the series will follow each one of them and I’m eager to know more about them all.
