Title: River Wild
Author: Samantha Towle
This is my first book from this author and it’s a bit of a mixed bag from me.
While there were some sections that were definately difficult to read, particularly early on, I thought they were well written and set the scene well. My only question is if the whole narrative line was needed.
People treated River differently because of his mum’s actions, not his or the things that happened before that. Carries actions and life are in no way hindered or impeded by her experiences either. I get that the things happen, but they usually affect the person they’ve happened to and I didn’t feel they did here.
There were a number of little practical inconsistencies that can be overlooked because, well, romance but anyone whose had a child will not be back in bed 8 weeks later without a worry, care or concern as to the trauma that’s gone on there. Certainly not considering what she’s supposedly gone through previously.
That being said, the story itself is gripping and exciting. River is sweet and charming, sometimes, that train though *swoon*.
I liked the characters and how they interacted together but I’m not sure it gels right with their back stories for me. 3 and a half stars
