When Love Isn't Enough - a Review
Are there ever times in a relationship when love just isn't enough to keep the relationship going? When Love Isn't Enough is the outstanding debut novel by author Stephanie Casher. I usually only like to read romances if there is good murder thrown into the story. The author is talented since she managed to keep me interested in what was happening without any bloodshed taking place.
Sometimes it takes more than love to keep a relationship alive. This book puts drama right where it belongs – between the pages of a book. The drama becomes so intense that it becomes hard to quit reading. While reading the book, prepare yourself to experience a variety of emotional experiences – laughter, joy, anger, and sadness. I know I wanted to climb into the pages and beat some sense into certain characters.
Don't expect this romance to have a happy ending. The characters are very real and very true to life in their actions. They don't always act the way you want them to or the way you know they should. This book doesn't have a fairytale ending, but it is written exceptionally well. It did start off a bit slow for me, but it wasn't long before I was drawn into the story.
Your two main characters are Samantha and Tony. Samantha has just come through a bad break up. She is just starting her second year of college. A relationship is not something she is looking for, nor is it something she expects to come her way. Tony doesn't believe in love at first sight, but then he sees Samantha. He sweeps her off her feet, but then breaks the news to her that he already has a girlfriend, one that he has been with for several years. From what Tony says, he is staying with her out of a sense of obligation.
They may have fallen madly and deeply in love with each other, but Samantha won't be the cause of his breakup with Angela, his current girlfriend. Even so, he convinces Samantha that they are meant to be together. The drama begins when Tony can't (or won't) let go of Angela. Even though Samantha and Tony believe their love to be true, the timing is terrible and the choices are impossible.
My opinion of Tony is not a good one. Of course, if he behaved as I think he should have, then there wouldn't have been a story for Ms. Casher to write.
A copy of this book was sent to me free of charge by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. If you would like a copy of this book to read and enjoy for yourself, I have provided an Amazon link below.
