Amy's 4.5 star ARC Review of Resplendent Ruin (Resplendence Book 1) by Bella J
Juliette thought she had love. She thought she knew what it felt like to be loved. And to finally marry her fiancé, Daniel, was a dream she refused to let go of—until Knox Taylor showed up and made her question everything she thought she knew about life and love.
Juliette Mason had it all—the perfect job, the perfect home, the perfect fiancé. She lived the perfect life. Until everything started to slowly fall apart.
Daniel, her attractive and success-driven fiancé, was the love of her life. For years she wanted nothing more than to finally walk down the aisle, to be Mrs. Daniel Clarke. But as time went by, the cracks in their relationship started to come to the surface, and Juliette found herself in a place she never imagined she would be. It was a place where she started to question everything about her life and her dreams, a place where nothing about her life made sense anymore—a place where she found Knox Taylor.
Knox didn’t count on falling in love. In fact, Knox didn’t count on anything really. He was blissfully happy living a fast life of reckless behavior, impulsive decisions, and beautiful women. He lived the perfect life of a flourishing bachelor—but then she happened.
Content Notes: Spicy, Contemporary
Juliette Mason finds herself at a crossroads with her fiancé Daniel Clarke. Together since as long as she can remember their life together was planned. Forever was the word they lived by until Danielle took over the Clarke and Mason firm. Growing apart but desperately trying to mend the cracks, Juliette swears it won't be forever. Danielle didn’t ask to take over the firm right now it just happened. Five years … waiting with a closet full of DA pieces.
On a whim Juliette decides to go out and do something she has never done before. Enlisting her sister Lexi’s help she goes to her apartment to pick her up … however the man answering the door is not her boyfriend Levi …. Rude overbearing and obnoxious .. Juliette finds herself mesmerized by the bad sexy man. .. Knox ... I LOVE THAT NAME!
Cheating and shocking event after event fills the pages of this story. I couldn’t believe some of the things that were thrown our way. Just as you think .. ok .. finally .. then wham. I said holy sheesh .. what the heck more than once .. more than a dozen times. Danielle and Juliette's mother are infuriating.
The characters are well written and there is a cliffhanger of sorts. I loved the ending and the shocker brought into the story in the line of a character that you thought you wouldn’t meet. The heart knows what the heart wants .. it's just getting there sometimes. What a suspenseful read with no one being killed or anything! Soooo good!
Anxious for the next book! Thank you for the ARC! Review to post to Ramblings From Beneath The Sheets!
