The Red Pearl... A Sneak Peek

Saturday, December 03, 2016

Welcome to Sneak Peek Saturday on Reading List! 



Sneak Peek Saturday on Reading List  a glimpse into what I am reading currently





Current book:

The Red Pearl 

C. K. Brooke



The Red Pearl by CK Brooke A Sneak Peek



Goodreads Summary:

Treasure lost... passion found? 

Antonia Korelli is on the run from her coven of priestesses. She never desired a life confined to the temple, relegated to chastity and service to the goddess, Azea. Instead, she longs for true love and adventure in the Kingdom of Elat. 

Robin Watkins is a fiery dreamer on a mission of his own, to uncover the legendary lost Red Pearl. Only, he must first regain his treasure map, which was stolen by his former best mate and conniving ex-girlfriend. 

When Antonia becomes unwittingly entangled with Rob, she's more than dismayed to find herself stuck on his harebrained hunt. But somewhere amidst their bickering and banter, their plight for survival through desert and tropics, and the joint pursuit of impossible dreams, Antonia begins to realize that perhaps she might have found the unforgettable adventure – and romance – she was seeking.



Sneak Peek:

"Why, she wanted to sleep outdoors, she realized, a sense of adventure overtaking her. There was no need to continue sheltering herself."   (location 699 ereader)







Initial Thoughts

This is a tough one... I enjoyed it enough to finish it. I didn't love it. The romance between Antonia and Robin felt odd, and quick. Plus I had a hard time letting myself believe that Antonia would just follow this guy around on such an adventure simply because he told her she owed him.  I wanted to like this more, because I really like CK Brooke... but not everyone is going to love the same story...
