What would have made After the Storm better?
Any additional comments?
I have waited for this book with high anticipation. I love the series and Donovan's story was one I looked forward to reading. Except, there was very little storyline and what there was annoyed me mostly. I have an intense dislike of the BIG MISUNDERSTANDING plot. To me, that is lazy writing at best - reminiscent of '80s bodice ripper romance novels. One simple conversation would have prevented disaster. I found the character of Eve to be mostly too stupid to live. Yikes, what a disappointment!

Maya Banks is a hit or miss author for me; I either love or hate her work. I'm ambivalent about this book. I forwarded through much of this book as I felt like the main characters went on and on about everything and I was bored. I don't believe in the "I've only known you 2 days and I love you". It wasn't realistic at all to me. I didn't get to take a journey with the couple as they fell in love. I agree with another reviewer that the "misunderstanding" situation was overdone. I saw it coming a mile away. As a person who appreciates the journey of earning someone's trust after they've been through some hard situations in this life I didn't believe that all 3 of the siblings trusted Donovan and his family within hours. For example; Eve was prepared to run away in the night to prevent Donovan from bringing a doctor by to see her sister but she's in the sac with him right away and in love? I definitely didn't buy into his book at all.
On a positive note Adam Paul did a great job narrating the book as usual.
