Book Review All We Knew by Jamie Beck (Free on Kindle Unlimited)

ABOUT THE BOOK


Hunter Cabot deeply loves two things: the international tea company he’s helped his father build, and his wife, Sara. From the moment he first saw her wide smile on their college campus years ago, Hunter fell hard. Yet now, with other family members pushing to sell the thriving business and Sara grieving their failure to start a family, he’s suddenly facing the crushing loss of both.

The relentless ambition that Sara once admired in Hunter is now driving them apart. Each missed doctor’s appointment, neglected dinner date, and family squabble accentuates their differing priorities. Still, Sara struggles to create the home life they’d envisioned, until unsettling developments—both personal and professional—push them to the breaking point.

When love is put to the ultimate test, can Hunter and Sara stop fighting each other long enough to fight for their marriage?

REVIEW

I really wanted to like this story.  It is a different take on a romance where the main characters are reconnecting and trying to fix an established relationship.  The thing is, I just couldn't care about the characters.  The problem with jumping into the story part way into the relationship is that it was hard to understand why I should care about their relationship, other than the characters telling me they cared about each other.  The whole story just really dragged for me because I didn't have that connection.  If this unique take on romance interests a reader, I would recommend giving this a try because I love Jamie Beck and her writing, this just didn't engage me like her stories normally do.


OVERALL RATING - 3.5 STARS!
