Entwine by Rebecca Berto - Book Review

Sarah Langham’s life was the epitome of normal until her dad slept with another woman when she was sixteen. It ripped her family apart.

Twenty-two-year-old Sarah has it together, though.

Waiting at the train station to go home from her first day of her first proper job out of university, she spots a man.

He is an enigma to her. She’s drawn to him, with his square jaw; buzz of hair; and his tall, solid frame, seen under the contours of his business suit. And he’s been looking at her, too. Fate pulls them together that night on a whirlwind date, exceeding anything Sarah’s experienced before. He’s even more into her than she’s into him. Finally, she wants to trust a guy for the first time since she was sixteen.

But then they discover something.

Something that meant they were never two strangers at a train station.

And it threatens to tear their future apart before it, really, ever begins.

Recommended for mature readers due to explicit content. | [This book is published in Australian English and includes relative diction.]

First, I’d like to say that the cover is totally drool-worthy and just right for the lead male of the story- the hot and sinfully sexy, Malik.

Sarah’s life was never the same again after she caught her dad sleeping with another woman when she was sixteen. The infidelity drove her family apart.

At twenty-two and on her first day of her job – she saw a man. At first sight, she was immediately drawn to him. Perhaps it was the aura of mystery, his irresistible appeal or that he caught him staring at her too! They immediately hit it off – went on a date without even knowing his fame. Finally, she had the urge to trust a man for the first time after the infidelity incident with her father.

But then, they found out something startling - something that linked the both of their lives together.

Entwine was an okay read, and I like the fact that these two characters were far off from perfection. Especially Malik – who had his own past and present demons to overcome. Sarah has her own baggage, and is still bitter from her parent’s divorce and his father’s past mistakes.

The twist in the story caught me by surprise, I knew there was something between them – but I didn’t expect that was IT! Nevertheless, despite the secrets, baggage and differences – these two people deserve each other and deserve to be happy.

The only thing is that – they might have fallen in love quite fast than what I expected, they haven’t even know each other quite well. I think they needed a stronger foundation for their relationship.

Nevertheless – it was a short, steamy read, with a twist you won’t see coming.

Rebecca Berto writes stories about love and relationships. She gets a thrill when her readers are emotional reading her books, and gets even more of a kick when they tell her so. She's strangely imaginative, spends too much time on her computer, and is certifiably crazy when she works on her fiction. 

Rebecca Berto lives in Melbourne, Australia with her boyfriend and their doggy.
