Seeing White by Charlotte E. Hart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
::..Reviewed for Red's Midnight Readers..::
First of all, why the fudge has it taken me so long to read this huge book? It's bloody fantastic!!!
Ever heard of the saying I like big books and I can not lie?, this is totally me right now.
It has left me feeling so over whelmed, I fear this review will make little sense as I struggle to organize my thoughts and feelings into coherent sentences that will make you rush out and one click this beauty right away.
Seeing White has totally captivated my attention and kept me reading on to find out when the story takes Alexander and Elizabeth and let me tell you what a roller coaster it was. It is one of those few books that has made me want to write a lot of sweary words in my review......because that is how I'm feeling right now, as I fight the urge to dive into Feeling White.
Those last few chapters have destroyed me, heart and soul. Alexander White's character is absolutely devastatingly heartbreaking to read and he will tug on every heart string you own, whilst making you want to kill him yourself. He is definitely a force to be reckoned with. He's dark, brooding and a typical alpha a-hole billionaire but you won't be able to shake him from your mind or your heart.
This book was not what I was expecting at all.....it was so much more. It just blew me away.
The story was tantalizing to say the least, Charlotte E. Hart reveals just enough at the right time to keep you hooked. She's a devious woman and I can not wait to read the rest of this trilogy.
I gave it 5 stars but wish I could have given it a zillion more.
If you haven't already one clicked it, what are you possibly waiting for?
Alexander White, the wealthy business man with looks to die for. Just like the other colours you’d think.......but no.
He came from a very different place and made some of his money a very different way.
And he keeps it well hidden because the truth would destroy everything he has. All that he’s worked for would be gone in an instant if they ever found out what he’s capable of, or what he really did and who he did it for. So he keeps people far away with metaphorical games and walls to deceive and confuse.
He doesn’t do relationships, he doesn’t do emotions and he certainly doesn’t do love..... whatever the hell that might be.
He does money. Making it, manipulating it and spending it whist he plays with women who know what they’re signing up for when they walk in the room.
Three people shaped who he is today. One damaged him beyond repair, another taught him to control the rage, and a decent one helps him to consider his options more appropriately than his own head might allow.
But be under no illusions ladies, Mr White has not been a nice man, and he will probably never be a decent man but as long as he keeps up his image, and nothing gets through his barriers, no one will ever see the truth.
Life’s good for Elizabeth Scott, successful business, happy kitchen and a great sister who deals with all the expensive people so she doesn’t have to. She just cooks, bakes and smiles her way through each day......well most of the time anyway, that is when her great sister isn’t pushing her to, “get out there a bit more,” or “sort her shit out.”
Then the biggest contract of their lives comes up..... And the ever useless London tube, with her sister in it, catastrophically breaks down. Unfortunately that means only one thing, she’ll have to deal with some of that wealth herself and that means the devastating Mr Alexander White in all his glory.
Life suddenly couldn’t get worse, regardless of his unfairly gorgeous backside.
She has no idea what the hell she’s doing.
