Because You're Mine Review


 About the Book

Alanna has been plagued by tragedy. So it should come as no surprise that in the beauty that surrounds Charleston, all is not as it seems.

When her husband is killed by a car bomb while their band is on tour in Charleston, Alanna doesn’t know where to turn. Her father-in-law is threatening to take custody of the baby she carries, but the one thing she knows for sure is that she can’t lose the last piece of Liam she has left.

Their manager offers her a marriage of convenience to gain her U.S. citizenship and allow her to escape her father-in-law’s control. It seems like the perfect solution . . . but her doubts begin almost as soon as she arrives at Barry’s family home, a decaying mansion surrounded by swamp.

To make matters worse, Liam’s best friend survived the car bomb. She’s never really liked Jesse and now she can’t seem to get away from him. When he takes Liam’s place in their band, it’s almost more than she can bear.

But then things start happening. Things that could easily cost Alanna her life—or the life of her unborn child. Are they merely coincidences? Or is there something much more sinister at work?(Goodreads)

 My Thoughts

I am not sure where to start. I was so looking forward to reading this book as I have read many of Colleen's books. This story came out of left field and it didn't seem like the same author had written it. The overall concept is interesting but this book fell flat for me. The characters are so wishy washy and I felt no character development or connection. The suspense part was not really suspenseful and was more confusing than not. I felt like too much was just thrown in this book and it didn't flow right. Once the ending was getting close I had it figured out but was disappointed. The relationship with Jesse and Liam and Alanna is pretty much weird and how it ended seemed very unrealistic. The mentioning of soul transferring and an exorcism were completely random and not necessary.  I don't want to give away too much but DNA is DNA. 
Anyway this isn't a Colleen Coble book I would recommend. She has so many other wonderful books that this one just wasn't up to par.
Three stars.
