Review: Meant for Me by Faith Sullivan


Screen Shot 2014-01-25 at 7.27.36 AMEric thought he had forever…before.

 

Divided between reliving the past and embracing his new life with Ivy, Eric fears that love will once again be ripped from his grasp. Having faith in the future is hard. So many things can go wrong.

 

Ivy is convinced that what they have is meant to be…but no one can escape the wheel of fate.

 

Her love for Eric and the life they’re creating make every sacrifice seem worthwhile. Until she’s forced to reveal the truth surrounding her delicate condition. Even if it shatters his hope.

 

Can they hold onto their newfound happiness or are events already in motion to keep them apart?

 

 

Meant For Me is book two in the Take Me Now series and gets off to a, ah, hot start. It picks up where book one leaves off, Ivy is pregnant and Eric is struggling to provide for them.

Right from the beginning, Faith develops a loving and organic relationship between her two MCs. It’s clear they’d do anything for each other, even if that anything would put themselves at risk.

Ivy is a strong, driven MC who, despite the crap she’s been through, seems pretty used to getting what she wants – at least where Eric’s concerned. Her big flaw though, is she makes some pretty dumb choices, especially when it comes to the baby. It was so frustrating to sit there and read about her doing the same thing over and over but it kept me reading. And THANK GOD she made the right choice in the end.

Eric is just a big, ol’ sweetie, wrapped in a tall, muscle-y bundle.  He’s been through a whole load of crapola too, and it really made me cringe to see him going through it all again. That said, when it came to the BIG choice, it made his side of the argument make total sense (even if I didn’t agree).

Meant For Me was really well written but the one thing I wasn’t keen on were the multiple points of view. I’m okay with two max, when it gets more than that I find I don’t really care about the side characters so I don’t invest as much into those chapters. Personal choice though, I guess.

If you love a bit of swoony romance, a bitch-queen nemesis, and to worry about your main characters, Meant For Me is for you. I really enjoyed it and after that ending – man – I’ll be reading book three as soon as it’s out.

Totally not fair, Sullivan. Just so you know.

Four out of five stars.
