Are you ready for an excerpt and my review of Overwhelm Me?? You might be ready for my review but probably not the HOT excerpt!!!
I received an ARC of Overwhelm Me from AC Marchman and I am so thankful to her for sharing it with me. I loved this story and know it is going to do GREAT 🙂
The story begins with Allie literally running into Donovan on her way to her last exam of college life. Both are immediately attracted to each other but neither says anything and they go their separate ways. Then later as Allie is celebrating at a local club with her friends, guess who is there?? Yes, Donovan is there and the two get very close quickly. I loved how quickly these two fall for each other. But both have some serious skeletons in their closet and they have to try their hardest to work through them without it coming between them.
There are so many things I loved about this book and Allie is one of them. Allie is a smart, beautiful woman who has been through a lot but has come out on top. I admire her for the decisions she made and direction she is headed in life. Not every female would have taken the high road like her and I admire her for it. I love a story with a strong female character and Allie is definitely one of my favorites. There is no whiney, poor pitiful me in her character and she deserves Donovan 🙂
“I close my eyes and listen to the music, bopping my head to the pulsating song. When I open them, I am looking right into the sculpted face of the man of my dreams.”
And Donovan…oh, Donovan!!! He is smart, sexy, compassionate, protective and rich. I enjoyed how he was not afraid to show his feelings but then also he was Allie’s hero when she needed him. His family is EXTREMELY rich and he doesn’t mind spending his money on Allie but yet he doesn’t flaunt it around and depend on it in life. The only thing that bothered me about Donovan was his inability to talk with Allie about his past. (a usual male issue…Ha!) Allie was very open about hers even if it hurt but yet he would not talk about his.
I found the author’s writing very easy to read. She had me pulled into the story immediately!! There was just enough detail for me to get a good picture of what was going on but not too much that it confused me. I never lost interest in this story and didn’t expect the ending. It is a cliff hanger but not one that leaves you distressed.
I consider myself lucky to have read Overwhelm Me before the rest of the world and look forward to more from AC Marchman 🙂
