Amy's 3.5 star ARC Review of Paradox (The Thornfield Affair #2) by Amity Cross

All her life, all Jane Doe has ever wanted was a name, a family and someone to love.
She’s suffered many hardships, but none have come close to her treatment at the hands of the enigmatic Edward Rochester.
The only thing Jane wants to do is love Edward openly, but he has forced her to keep their budding romance hidden. Despite giving him an ultimatum, his will is set in stone and he refuses. His secrets run so deep they’ve driven a wedge between their hearts, keeping them apart but still longing for one another.
Driven by death, madness, rivalry, violence and love, their story inevitably intertwines once more, and they realize they cannot escape the affair they began in the middle of the English summer… but they soon learn not all things were meant to stay hidden.
When Edward’s darkest secret finally sees the light of day, will Jane be able to forgive him, or will she be forced to leave Thornfield forever?

From International Bestselling author Amity Cross, comes Paradox, the second novel of The Thornfield Affair, a modern reimagining of Charlotte Brontë’s classic Jane Eyre.

So I want to love this series but it's tough. Don't get me wrong the characters are very well written but the story line just isn't my cup of tea. 

Book two hits us where we left off in the first release. Jane Doe is living with a shattered heart. Edward was not the man she thought. He chose wrong. Keeping their love a secret had taken its toll and she thought he would chose her. Alone again left with nothing Jane is broken. 

Secrets are still in the shadows but Jane finds out what haunts Edward. She finds herself unable to forgive the man she thought she loved. Edward is disturbing to say the least and Jane is a woman he doesn't deserve. This book is somewhat frustrating at times because of that fact. 

The story works well and the writing is flawless but again it's not my kind of read. But I want you to tell me. This is a series so reading it you need to go back to the first release. Amity is a brilliant writer. 

Try it out friends and let me know! Review to post to Ramblings From Beneath The Sheets.
