Designing Samantha's Love

I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it.

I’m not quite sure how I feel about this book. I have stopped reading it several times to read other books in order to digest my thoughts here.

First off, I LOVE having older protagonists here. They have adult children and even grandchildren. There was a very funny scene between Gray’s parents at one point I had to stop reading as I was laughing so hard. I loved the dual POV format as well (especially when dealing with Gray!) I thought Gray was a bully at times with a very thick skull. He would make promises to Sam (Samantha) but then turn around and break them, repeatedly.

Also puzzling to me was when she was in the hospital. Gray’s family was with her. Where were her kids?! Also for someone unconscious since the evening before, she sure had a lot of visitors in her room but again none of her family. The same could be said for another scene later in the book. Yes, I know it is fiction but be a little more realistic.

There is also some dominant scenes here that I tend to stay away from. That is not for me. After saying that, of course, I would only recommend this spicy read for someone over the age of 18.

I normally love this author’s work but this story fell really short for me. I almost didn’t finish but I REALLY hate to do that. I do real a lot of alpha type of male romances but Gray just seemed well past that. He was just way too controlling for me. Then there was Samantha. I felt she was too passive. She kept returning to Gray to only have him disappoint and hurt her over and over in the beginning. If this were real life, I would have cautioned her that he could be really abusive in the future.

The suspense doesn’t start until about the second half. While the “person” behind it all was easy to figure out, the question of when and where the next strike was really the only suspense. That kind of felt more realistic but by now it was getting tiring.
