Ratings: ★ ★
Okay, this one is a DNF. It was THAT interesting at first, liked Danni and because she seems to be a nice and honest woman, thought we'd get along. Problem is, she became something opposite to 'nice and honest' soon after her best friend died. It slowed down just after that, like I was listening to a friend's boring life story.
It's hard to like a book when you don't like the main character . . . . sorry DNF. There are others who enjoyed the book, click here to read positive reviews. . .
About the book:
“We got so busy living life that we forgot to live our dreams.” Danni Lewis has been playing it safe for twenty-six years, but her sheltered existence is making her feel old ahead of time. When a sudden death plunges her into a spiral of grief, she throws caution to the wind and runs away to France in search of a new beginning. The moment ski instructor Olivier du Pape enters her shattered world she falls hard, in more ways than one. Their mutual desire is as powerful and seductive as the mountains around them. His dark gypsy looks and piercing blue eyes are irresistible. Only she must resist, because he has a wife - and she’d made a pact to never get involved with a married man. But how do you choose between keeping your word and being true to your soul? Weak at the Knees is Jo’s debut novel in the new adult, contemporary romance genre – a story about love, loss and relationships, set between London and the heart of the French Alps. Due to descriptive sex scenes, this book is not appropriate for younger readers.
