The Cover: I really love this cover. It’s eye catching, sweet and super intimate. A+
Basics: Him & I was released on June 3rd 2018 and is part of the Kindle Unlimited program. Genre wise Him & I belong to contemporary romance.
Description: Love is a risk.
Roman has never been willing to take those odds, until now.
A beautiful stranger, overheard telling the desk clerk she’s on her honeymoon alone, arouses something in him. Something primal. Something protective. He finds himself doing and saying things he swore he never would in an effort to understand the pain in Aria’s sensual eyes.
His scars are so deep, they may never heal.
His need for control is ingrained.
His desire for her is unparalleled.
The challenge of winning her may be the biggest risk of all.
Overall thoughts: Him & I had all the interesting, swoon worthy aspects of a good romance book but it lacked in several areas. I felt the beginning was a great opening and immediately had me hooked/wanting to know what was next but it was super rushed. I’m all for two characters quickly falling in love but the way Aria and Roman started off just didn’t make sense to me and was super unrealistic. To be fair, it is a romance book and there are a lot of romance books were similar things happen like in Him & I but there was just something off and lacking with this one.
That being said, Him & I is a great story about starting over and falling love. It is well written but there were some gray areas where I wish more there was descriptive writing. Roman is every romance readers dream even with his secrets and rough edges, he’s funny too which I always appreciate in an alpha male. Aria is very likeable and interesting, a great heroine any reader would admire; plus her last name is Savage I mean come on!
Overall Him & I by Melody Eve was a great debut romance read but definitely needed some fine tuning here and there. Eve has a bright future ahead of her and I look forward to watching her grow as a writer.
