Read Evvie Drake Starts OverA Novel

About Evvie’s late husband and Evvie won’t ask about Dean’s baseball career Rules though have a funny way of being broken and what starts as an unexpected friendship soon turns into something To move forward Evvie and Dean will have to reckon with their pasts the friendships they’ve damaged the secrets they’ve kept but in life as in baseball there’s always a chance up until the last out. 2 stars Sadly I ended up disliking most aspects of this novel It might appeal to those looking for a light summer read that isn t necessarily funny or moving Throughout the novel I had the impression that I was reading an early draft rather than a completed and published version of a book The story as such seemed incomplete We have the inciting incident Dean becomes Evvie s tenant and then nothing much beyond that happens It seems they start experiencing romantic feelings for each other during their very first meeting insta love yay and I never bought into their relationship They had stilted conversation and their flirting was painful to read there was this attempt to make their banter playful but it ended up being babyish and completely cringeworthy The relationship between Evvie and Dean is meant to propel the storybut given how flat these characters are I had little interest in their budding romance The whole let s fix each other trope was handled in a way that made a lot of their actions seem invasive controlling and downright bad eg stalking invasion of privacy Within a few chapters I found that their personalities were non existent and that their actual character completely hinged on a trauma Dean s character can t throw straight any while Evvie is keeping a secret about her relationship to her now dead husband Side characters were rather clich d Evvie s best friend happens to be a man and initially I appreciated their platonic relationship so I was disappointed by the way it was portrayed Other characters were entirely forgettable and bland Evvie s husband is the classic badcold guy who is nice to most people except his wife I guess that having a not so nuanced character makes it easier for him to seem just bad making Evvie some sort of sympathetic martyr It was so boring The characters and the story had so little to offer Their conversations were worded in such a way that they offered little clarity for example Evvie recounts some an event for two pages in a way that made little sense An uneventful story lack of humour superficial relationships little emotionand there you have it Evvie Drake Starts Over Maybe readers who can look past the unimaginative writing style will be able to appreciate this than I did Read reviews on my blog
