Amy's 4 star ARC Review of euphoria (The Thornfield Affair Book One) By Amity Cross
No one cared to give her a name.
And his came with the weight of the world.
Orphaned as an infant, Jane Doe has nothing, but desires everything life has to offer.
When she’s offered work at Thornfield, a grand English manor turned hotel, she meets her match in the dark and brooding proprietor, Edward Rochester.
He’s arrogant, moody, and hurtful, but as Jane’s attraction grows for this strange and powerful man, so does her spirit. Soon enough, tensions rise to breaking point, and they become embroiled in an illicit affair of the mind and body. An affair that neither is strong enough to turn from.
But Edward harbors a dark secret, one he is reluctant to share, even with his new confidant Jane. It’s a secret so dark and shocking it could tear them apart forever.
Can Jane choose between what is right and her one chance at true happiness?
Welcome to Thornfield where two lost souls are destined to love…no matter the cost.
From International Bestselling author Amity Cross, comes Euphoria, the first novel of The Thornfield Affair, a modern reimagining of Charlotte Brontë’s classic Jane Eyre.
Edward Rochester is egotistical. Thornfield Manor and he hold secrets. It's not a place for Jane Doe. Yet she is drawn to the Manor and the dark man who is there. No connection to anyone, she is intrigued by how she craves the secretive man. Feeling like she belongs somewhere for the first time in her life she doesn’t want to feel anything for Edward but she can't help herself. Yet the Manor holds secrets. Who is Grace and what do the haunting nights have to do with her.
This is a classic turned into a modern day romance. The plot is decent and the characters are well written. I am a huge Amity fan but this genre isn’t my first choice. Having said that I can tell you the book will keep you on your toes. In true Amity style there is no lacking in a detailed story or characters. This is exactly the reason I rated it 4 stars. I cannot say the book is not worth reading and I cannot say its not a great story. Its just not my genre. However I do know excellent writing and this is just that.
Mystery and suspense line the pages of the first release. This is a three release series. Click it up if you like a modern spin on a classic read. Beautiful cover depicting the exact setting and temperament of Edward.
