a messy combination and it really is a wild ride tomessy combination and it really is a wild ride to The story comes together well despite the fact that it seems like it shouldn t I did have some problems with some things which I will extend on later but I think this is yet another knock out of the park by Talia HibbertIf you re looking to et into the contemporary romance Baghdad: City of Peace, City of Blood genre I truly can t recommend Talia Hibbert s books enough If you scroll down my blog a little you ll find a bunch of reviews I have done for her books I truly recommend them due to the fact they are simply so easy to read as well as Talia being one of the most lovely people I followinteract with on twitterwhat I did like SIBLING RELATIONSHIPSI m a big fan of family relationships in books I m super close with my mum and my relationship with my sister is iffy but I was overjoyed to see that Lizzie had such a close relationship with her brother in this book The pair hadone through so much with their parents Despite being well off and the brother living off his trust from the family their parents are
monsters However the siblings work together in order to be there to support one anotherHowever the siblings work together in order to be there to support one another really was a refreshing take to see the fact the pair had come together in their hardships rather than distance I Imagine That! guess there was distance 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 of one character is not as 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 weot a sense 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 kind of tale Lizzie was a bit difficult being someone who rew up in wealth By the end of the story I had connected to the characters and I was so igglywhat 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 meh 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 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 It kind 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 know 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 which is when I read it I still recommend absolutely anything Talia Hibbert talia hibbert s books are like crack to me no.
