Normally I'm not a huge fan of political stories in my romances. Don't get me wrong, I like a good political thriller every now and then, but when I read a romance, I normally like to keep the focus on the romance. So I wasn't sure when I started this whether it was going to be one that would hold my interest.
It was. I loved it.
I was told going into it that it didn't really have a set genre and after reading it I can see how it would be hard to narrow it down to just one. This book covers it all. There are so many different emotions swirling around while reading this story that it makes it hard to put it down.
The story of friendship and love between Jack and Caroline, combined with the political aspect of the book, all makes for an exciting read. And to make it even better, this is only the first book in this wonderful new series.
I can't wait to read book two, and I highly recommend to everyone, to read book one.
4 out of 5 stars.
Cecilia London is my pen name. I am a native Midwesterner who never thought I'd end up in Texas and yet here I am, determined to help Keep San Antonio Lame. I have been known to dabble in the practice of law. I can apply Simpsons quotes to everyday life, and I live for baseball season. I've been writing off and on since I was a kid, but never really thought I’d have any idea that could turn into a single novel, let alone a series. There aren't many books about how dystopias/totalitarian political regimes come into existence, and I wanted to touch upon that topic while still maintaining a primary focus on the epic romance. Dissident is my first published novel.
