"I belonged to Trenton since I was sixteen years old."
OH MY GAHD!
I totally loved it! I was hooked with Rowan from the first page up to the last – and don’t even start about Trenton !!!
If you think you loved Trace on the first and second book – wait until you meet the younger Wentworth, Trenton. He’s just amazing – he’s loyal, sweet, determined, persuasive, and funny. He’s totally irresistible. *SWOON* He totally stole my heart in the first few pages of the story.
The first thing that had come into my mind is that: why won’t Rowan let Trenton in? They have been best friends since they were young, they have shared more than enough, and it is very, very evident that he was head over heels in love with her – what went wrong?
For a young girl, Row had so much on her shoulders. When others went out on dates and having the time of their lives – she was at home, taking care of her siblings while her mother drowns herself in alcohol everyday and her step-father touching her any chance he got. I was desperate for her to just go to Trent, and be with him, leave their home with her siblings and be happy. She was totally miserable, if it wasn’t for her siblings, she’d have a mental breakdown from the stress and the secret that she was keeping.
Trenton, on the other hand, had let her go then – because it wasn’t their time. But now – he was moving forward, determined to have her – nothing is going to stop him this time. He would be patient, he would be nice, but he wouldn’t stay away. But even though how much he assured her about his feelings, she’s still keeping things from him, and he was dying to know what it was. He wanted to stop the pain, the hurting in her eyes. He wanted to love her, she already has his heart, since he was sixteen. But no matter what he does, she keeps a close guarded wall around her heart. This time, he would do anything to destroy those walls and make her see how much she meant to him.
But it was sooooo much hard work before she can finally see, and when she did, love found its way to her heart. All these time she thought she was incapable of loving – but how can their relationship last when it was already doomed from the start? The secret that she has been keeping will drive him away, or much worst, will make him hate her.
I HAVE NO IDEA IT WAS THAT HUGE! I have some wild guesses what she has been keeping from Trent, but definitely NOT THAT ONE. It came to me as a surprise. Where in the world did it come from? I hated her mother even more.
And you won’t miss Trace and Olivia because they appear here too! Trace – I loved him even more for what he did for Row and her siblings. He was such a great guy. Heart of gold seems to run into the Wentworth genes.
The ending had me in near-tears. Awww. I thought Micalea would give me a different ending that what I was expecting, thank goodness she didn’t. Although my heart almost stopped there when the alarms went off. I was sure they were going to have a happy ending, and then all of a sudden, I wasn’t so sure at all… yay.
Fall in love, get in the webs of lies and deception, get your heart break and your adrenaline pumping –Tempting Rowan was a great read that had me kept going all those wee hours of the morning. Definitely one of those must-reads.
