What happens when his ex just won’t let go?
Mayfair Island, Florida. Grief-stricken after the sudden loss of her beloved grandmother, an enduring but reclusive Hollywood icon, young Priscilla Bauer finds herself adrift and looking to find solace in the arms of her vast inheritance, when she meets the kind and considerate corporate brand designer, Michael Frost—a drop dead gorgeous beacon of light in her all too dark night.
Falling hard and falling fast, Priscilla has no idea she’s stepped into dangerous territory… someone else has already branded Michael Frost her very own—with no intention of letting him go!
Love. Loss. Jealousy. Vengeance. Passions are high but bitter vengeance gets even higher in this razor-sharp love triangle you won’t forget!
With Raindrops on Roses, the captivating Favorite Things Trilogy takes flight!
I’ve written about my first DNF, now I’m reviewing my first mistake. I honestly have no idea why I requested to review this book. About 1/4 of the way in, I realized the entire premise is a love triangle involving a cheating boyfriend. I went back to check the book blurb, thinking maybe it was misleading, but nope! So clearly I was off my rocker the day I requested Raindrops on Roses, because I don’t care for books like that.
I absolutely despised Amber, and her mother, Julie, both for what they are, and as characters. I never like the “crazy (ex) girlfriend” cliche, and this book was no exception. I feel like every time characters like Amber and Julie are utilized, no one knows how to help or deal with them, so they ultimately become a danger to themselves and others. There’s enough of that in the world already, I don’t want it in my books.
However, I will give credit to Ms. Black for a very well-written book. I didn’t notice any errors while reading it, and actually rather enjoyed the non-Amber chapters. I even considered picking up the next book in the series. If you enjoy love triangles, you’ll love this book, probably this entire series.
