Because You Are Mine is a free book I got on All Romance eBooks this month. I didn’t have many expectations going into the story. Didn’t realize how short it would be with a complicated plot.

The story starts off abruptly with Cara Sinclair in extreme pain after being beaten. We don’t know much else at this point other than the sheriff has detained Drake Ross as a suspect since he is the own who brought in Cara with her blood on his hands.

Fast forward 12 years and Cara has a job in finance in Chicago. With a new boss on the way, she is shocked to find out it is Drake. In bits and pieces we get the story of what happened to Drake, but in reality is was as clear as mud. Cara doesn’t remember what happened to her. Her mother and stepfather accept money from Drake’s family and move away. So when Drake arrives, there is a lot of hostility between the two.

Drake works Cara hard and Cara can’t stop the attraction she feels for him. Because of her loss of memory and her parents protection, she doesn’t know all of what happened to Drake. She tries to keep it professional while Drake tries to keep his distance. It all seemed silly and I don’t know why. Drake has a valid reason for being angry after losing his reputation and being detained and harassed for two years. Cara has a valid reason for not knowing anything about what happened nor what happened afterwards.

See Cara made some moves on Drake the day of her attack. He turned her down and that caused her to not want to see him after the attack. Not to ruin the story, but Cara finally remembers everything and the story climaxes fast and furiously without any gratification.

Extremely short and lacking character development, I just thought this story needed a little something more to make me like it.

Does it continue from the earlier books in the series or was this a new story arc that just didn’t get fleshed out? Man, sounds like they needed to be locked in a room together to get the truth out. 🙂

I don’t know if it is a continuation, but I know it is part of a series. The writing didn’t do much for me so I didn’t attempt to find out.

Seems like an interesting story but a little rushed, since you say it lacks character development is too short. I usually don’t read novellas for those two very reasons but I’m so curious after reading your review. I want to know what happened to Cara that night. Sorry you didn’t enjoy it. Thanks for your honesty though 🙂

Too rushed. I just disinterested after the opening grabbed me but there wasn’t much to bring it all together.
