Hi guys kloe here ...
Before I get started I just want to say a happy belated Easter to you lovely lot.
The day I arrived here in Portugal my family and I went down to our local cafè and whilst we were waiting for our meals I decided to go to my favourite charity book stand in the shop next door which stores everything but I only go there for the books ( yep that’s all I’m not gonna lie ) , And this book by Danielle steel really captured my attention I don’t know if it was the name or the Eiffel tower on the cover and I knew I had to read it ...
About the book
Marshall Everett has just survived his toughest undercover assignment with the D.E.A , while home he settles into a temporary job guarding the president of the United States with the secret service until a routine job ends everything he’s worked so hard for and Marshall escapes to Paris .
Ariana Gregory knows that with her father being the American ambassador her safety is always at risk until one close encounter puts her in more danger than ever and ariana relocates to Paris , but ariana isn’t far from trouble and her safety in paris will depend on one man marshall.
My opinion on the book
I decided to read this with an open mind and not to compare it to what i wanted it to be like.
I’m not gonna lie i did find undercover hard to get into at first but it’s the kind of book you have to take a chance with and the more I read the more everything makes sense and the more enjoyed it and couldn’t wait to read it again .
There is some heart breaking moments for Marshall and ariana and couldn’t help but feel sorry for them both and I also found myself getting to know the characters too and it’s felt by the end of the book I knew them both .
My only bad thing I can say about the book is some parts felt rushed I know it can’t be 1225 pages long like war and peace but that’s my opinion on the book and yours might be different it all depends on what style or reading you like, and I’m not gonna sugar coat this i wanted for dialogue between the characters and a few times in the book people that Marshall and ariana had met there feelings or thoughts were written In mid text about what they thought of them which a few times was a little confusing and I found myself reading over that part a few times.
But other than that I thoroughly enjoyed the book and wished there was a follow on book maybe that’s just me being nosey who knows
This is different from what I usually read I’m a cheesy romantic really but I’ve wanted to try something different for a while but nothing really grabbed my attention the way undercover did , if I had the chance to read another Danielle steel novel I would as I know her style of writing and I know what I could expect , I’m going to be completely honest I enjoyed the story but not so much the authors style of writing but that being said Danielle is very talented but she isn’t the author for me but as I said before it all depends on what you like .
Stars 4 out of 5
