The Betrothed (The Betrothed #1)
When King Jameson declares his love for Lady Hollis Brite, Hollis is shocked—and thrilled. After all, she’s grown up at Keresken Castle, vying for the king’s attention alongside other daughters of the nobility. Capturing his heart is a dream come true.
But Hollis soon realizes that falling in love with a king and being crowned queen may not be the happily ever after she thought it would be. And when she meets a commoner with the mysterious power to see right into her heart, she finds that the future she really wants is one that she never thought to imagine.
It always pains me to write a low rated review especially when I loved the author’s previous books. I am crushed as I write this, but I know I will still read Kiera Cass’s other books in the future. Just maybe not any more in this series.
I was initially very excited about the book because I loved The Selection and thought this sounded very interesting. I got the book from my library and started reading it.
I didn’t love the characters. I didn’t quite connect to the romance. It felt like the spark was missing even with another pair.
The ending actually wasn’t bad. The story had finally grabbed my attention by then, but I’m not sure if it’s enough to read another book in the series if there is more to it. I still will read other books by this author for sure.
I am very sad to say that this was a one star rating, but just because it didn’t work for me doesn’t mean it won’t work for you! The cover and plot line idea really was a beautiful idea!
Thank you for reading!
