Today is my stop on the blog tour for What Took You So Long? I had the opportunity to read and review this one. Let me know what you think!
Milky thought she was ready for anything, but is she ready for love?
Ready to take on the world, Milky Valdez moves to Madrid to carve out a life and a career for herself, away from the stifling help of her well-meaning, affluent parents. Still young and inexperienced with men, she is shocked when she meets Luke, her handsome, womanizing neighbor, who leads a hedonistic lifestyle as a music producer.
Despite their differences, the two strike up an unlikely friendship.
Milky’s new world changes when she overhears a conversation that leads her to make a rash decision. Giving up her virginity to a friend seems like the easy option, but when she finds out what Luke has given up for her in return, she realizes just how big a risk she’s taking.
I don’t think What Took You So Long? was the book for me. I finished it, and gave it a fair shot, I just think it was a bit too over the top. There were parts I enjoyed and parts I did not.
I’m a really big character development lover. There was some, but I wanted more. I felt like the characters were a bit cookie cutter. One positive here that I did enjoy was Luke and Milky did really seem to love each other.
The plot was over the top and there were moments I was rolling my eyes. I can suspend my belief to a certain extent but I had trouble with this one.
I hate writing reviews like this. There are readers who will love it and there are readers who won’t. My opinion shouldn’t turn you away from this one because I think if you enjoy quick romances, this could be a book you’ll love.
I think if the book was longer, so the author was able to develop the characters and lengthen some of the interesting parts of the plot, this would have been better. I’d still like to read more from Jessica Larsen. I’m not writing her off just because of one book.
Jessica is a romance author. She writes in both English and Filipino (Taglish) language.
She’s a hopeless romantic, who will forever be young at heart. She enjoys traveling and hours arguing with her characters, and sometimes, she also takes pleasure in playing the villain and give them a taste of hell when they refused to listen to her outrageous demands.
Jessica currently lives in Spain near the Mediterranean coast with her loving husband and adorable son.
