B's Review: Broken Dove by Kristen Ashley

Far too young, Apollo Ulfr lost Ilsa, his wife, the love of his life and the mother of his two children. The grief of her loss does not settle in his soul, it solders to it. But when he discovers there is a parallel universe where his wife may have a twin, he feels there's hope and sets about bringing her to his world so he can have her back.

But Ilsa Ulfr of our world is married to the parallel universe's twin, Pol, who is not a good man. Not in any way. She's on the run from him and the last thing she wants is to be transported to a fantastical world and be forced to take his side as his wife, even if he is not Pol. And Apollo finds the broken, bitter Ilsa nothing like his beloved and he further wants nothing to do with her.

But darkness is looming and evil is amassing. Apollo must protect his land and keep his family safe, including the new Ilsa. 

My thoughts:
I have to write some things down so I do not forget.

Honestly this book is just about smexing and them arguing. Or the author telling us what everyone is wearing. All the time.

And Apollo is such an alpha a-hole. Honestly they argue, and the women tell HER to forgive and talk to him. He is an asshole, she should give him the finger and walk away. He should come begging on his knees.

And we are meant to believe this is an awesome society where whores are awesome and celebrated. And people start experimenting with sex young and can sleep around as much as they want cos that is the way....

yeah sorry I DO NOT believe it when every man is beyond alpha a-hole and to women seem to be chattel. 

Grow up the both of you.

And for Loki's sake, please stop telling me how HOT everyone is. I get it, men in that world are hot, whatever.

Actual review: 

I have said it all...

Sure I enjoyed the book at times, but trust me, nothing happened, arguing, sex, talking *eye roll* It feels like the author lost some steam when writing this one.

Oh and I totally forgot about the stupid thing that in this world and our world we speak English, French (and surely other ones too). What, so two worlds evolved and spoke the same languages, but still not the words, oh whatever. And parallell twins have the same name...whatever.

I think it's always fun when I have French sentences in a book. I always look if it's well done or not. I'm sad when it's something I can't read... like german. I had one like that.

In the end you make me really curious about the series.
