Ring on Her Finger by Lisa Swinton
What happened in Vegas should stay there, not follow Amanda home wedded to the man who broke her heart.
After celebrating college graduation with her friends in Las Vegas, Amanda St. Claire wakes up with a terrible hangover and a ring on her finger. Her day gets worse when she finds out she’s married to rich playboy Blake Worthington – the guy she has loathed the past four years. Amanda convinces Blake to legally terminate the marriage and they both return home like nothing ever happened. That is, until Blake shows up on her doorstep after his parents kick him out. After all he has blown $100,000 dollars on the wedding. Amanda has to come clean with her family.
Together for better or worse, while the legalities are cleared for an annulment, Amanda reluctantly plays along. But then the unthinkable happens – she finds herself falling in love with Blake. Can they overcome the past? Or will it end their future before it even starts?
These characters have just graduated from College. Amanda graduated with a degree in Nursing and Blake with a degree in Business and History. Amanda, the heroine, plans on going to Africa to work as a nurse delivering babies. The story takes place before she is scheduled to leave.
Pro’s: The book is well written. At age 21, the reckless behavior seems right for the age group. The characters were interesting and Blake became a sympathetic hero who was trying to win the heroine over.
Con’s: Amanda was more mature but really stubborn in the beginning showing little care or concern for the hero.
There were too many accidents dog bites, cuts, head wounds, broken ribs etc. and after a while they began to look like a plot device to bring the hero and heroine together.
Would I recommend? Yes, this book is not filled with gratuitous sex and I think young adults would like it.
I was provided this book from Inspired Kathy’s I Am A Reader, Not A Writer for an honest review. I was not compensated in any other way.
