This isn't so much a book review as a recommendation.
HANDCUFFS by Bethany Griffin is superb. Seriously. When I ordered it this summer, it was mostly because I knew the author on AbsoluteWrite and wanted to show some support. I figured it would be pretty good....but I didn't know HOW good.
The MC, Parker, is so real. I could hear her voice in my head. I could understand all of the issues she was going through--especially concerning her family's financial problems. I totally felt for her. I was COMPLETELY in her head!
But the coolest part of HANDCUFFS? The fact that Parker's love interest doesn't really have a name. I mean, I guess he does, but we as the reader only know him as "he", "him", or "the ex." At first, I thought this would be confusing....but it worked. It worked so well!
Again, this is a recommendation, not a review. I won't even try to be all analytical or anything right now. I just wanted to gush a bit and be all like "OMG, I know the author of this book!...Well, sort of." Hehehehe. Did I mention Bethany is super nice? Just saying.
So go read HANDCUFFS and devour it the way I did!!!!
In the mean time, check out Bethany's website:
