NEW REVIEW: Cereka Cook - Insanely In Love
Cereka Cook -
Insanely In Love -
Available Now! -
3 out of 5 books -
Investment mogul Jack Anderson had it all…good looks, money, and could charm any woman out of her clothes. He seemed like a dream come true. But be careful for what you dream for because sometimes a dream can be a nightmare. Women were constantly throwing themselves at Jack trying to become Mrs. Jack Anderson. Jack thought he had it all, but the only thing that was missing was love...that is until he meets Rain Hunter.
After having one date with Rain, Jack becomes obsessed with her. He's determined to make her his permanently, and he will do whatever it takes to make that happen. Rain was getting a little too comfortable with Jack, and eventually she will finds out who the real Jack is. Will Rain be able to resist Jack, or will she get taken in by all of the glamour?
Insanely in Love puts you in the mind of Fatal Attraction with Glenn Close, but this time it’s the male that was a little crazed instead of the woman. As I turned each page, the story seemed more and more predictable. You could figure out what Jack was going to do to keep Rain in his reaching distance. I really wasn't feeling this book because it seemed like things were happening over and over again. If Cereka Cook could have put a little twist to it, that would have made the book a little better. It didn't take too long to finish Insanely in Love because you know how it will end.
