distance I guess there was at the beginning but it is uickly sorted SUPPORTIVE FRIENDSI really love supportive friends and a supportive cast Both Lizzie and Isaac have people they can rely on The way they have treated these people is different and Lizzie does have some making up to do But overall they both have friends and people they can talk to which is honestly so damn rare in books I always find that one person seems to have a better support network but Talia Hibbert blew me out of the park yet again with Undone By The Ex Con DECENT AMOUNT OF BACKSTORY FOR BOTHI find in some of Talia Hibbert s work the backstory and development ofTHAN DISTANCE I GUESS THERE WAS
One Character Is Notcharacter is not well done as the other This is really just a small problem I have with her work Undone By The Ex Con really did a perfect job of providing the
backstory of both characters I really felt like we got aof both characters I really felt like we got a of who each person was through the multiple person view this story is told in I really was able to connect with Isaac s story so having a rags to riches ind of tale Lizzie was a bit difficult being someone who grew up in wealth By the end of the story I had connected to the characters and I was so gigglywhat I didn t like THE ROMANCE HAPPENED SO FASTThis was a big thing for me The romance was so fast It happens over a month The characters are literally engaged by the end of the book and it just made me feel super Is she strong enough to seduce her greatest enemyIsaac Montgomery is a millionaire a murderer and high society’s latest novelty After all he’s been through it should take than a prima ballerina with a cut glass accent to get under his skin But when Isaac meets Lizzie Olusegun Key.
Talia Hibbert ↠ 0 SummaryEh about everything I am a cynical bitch I admit to this I don t like my romances to be too fast I want distance I want time and I want connection before the characters vow to make a lifelong commitment I Cinderella Unmasked (Fairytale Fantasies know you can do a long engagement but seriously a month I really struggled to connect by the end THE ENDING LEFT ME NOT HAPPYThe epilogue was justbleh It wasn t what I wanted at all Itind of continues on from the last point of what I didn t like though SOMETHING MISSINGUndone By The Ex Con was ultimately missing something for me There was just a spark I wanted and this book didn t deliver it at all I don t now what it is but ultimately it just wasn t what I expected I think it was the romance honestly So maybe all my dislikes are simply just the romanceOverall I really did enjoy Undone By The Ex Con but the romance really dragged the story down for me The story really showed through flashbacks a deeper meaning that connected me to the story This was a fast paced romance set mainly in the Alps It was the perfect #Story For A Winters Day #for a winters day is when I read it I still recommend absolutely anything Talia Hibbert 4 StarsUndone by the Ex Con is yet another successful romance story from the ever impressive writing talents of Talia HibbertWith a slight enemies to lovers opposites attract vibe this story brings together ex con Isaac Montgomery and ex professional ballerina Lizzie Olusegun Keynes in an unexpected but life changing and passionate coupling At first glance Isaac is big and imposing with a past that only adds to his bad boy image But in truth he s shy and thoughtful now having made a success of his once poverty stricken life writing chart topping non fiction stories relating to his life and his experiences in the systemLizzie couldn t be different She comes from wealth and prestige training rigorously at a young age to achieve esteem in the world of dance But after getting a diabetes diagnosis in her early twenties Lizzie s life changes course She uits professional ballet and moves to a small cabin in England where she works as a private dance teacher for a wealthy familyIt is through their connections to this wealthy family that Isaac and Lizzie meet and fall deeply and unexpectedly in love Although there s an initial bone deep mutual attraction I wouldn t call this insta love Instead these two share some great exasperated banter which just adds to the fun of it as the truth of their relationship and the depth of their connection slowly grows Fair warning this story heavily relies on a deception arc between the MCs at least for a good chunk of the story Lies and miscommunication between MCs is never something I enjoy reading in my romances yet by some stroke of luck or damn good writing I didn t find myself as anxious or as frustrated with the characters here as I potentially could have been Thank goodness Where Hibbert particularly excels beyond her welcomed depiction of diverse protagonists is in how strong and complex she writes her characters particularly her heroines Hers are leads who feel all too real and relatable to me They aren t perfect by any means but I always find myself sympathising understanding and ultimately rooting for their happiness Lizzie and Isaac were no exception This was a sweet sexy fast paced well written opposites attract romance and I enjoyed myself immensely If you re a romance reader and haven t read one of Talia s stories yet you simply must 4 STARS It can be hard to recognise love when
