ARC Review: EVEREST by S.L. Scott

December 04, 2017


Six foot three. Dynamic green eyes. Utterly irresistible.

Ethan Everest stole my breath the first time I saw him. He romanced me with skill, dazzled me with his charisma, and proceeded to steal my heart right after.

I might have fallen for his easy-going smile the first time we met, but I fell for him the second time.

Honey-colored hair. Cherry-kissed lips. Captivatingly gorgeous.

Singer Davis was the first, and only, woman to ever intimidate me. She spoke to my heart with her wit, seduced me with her eyes, and became the only thing that made sense in a world that made none.

I let her slip through my fingers once. I won’t make that mistake twice.

Secrets broke us apart. Can a second chance bring us back together?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What I found funny was that ever since I started blogging, I’ve been promoting this author’s work but never actually read it. So I decided that now was the time to make things official. And I’m glad I did. I enjoyed this book a heck of a lot more than I thought I would considering how slow it started.

Yeah, that’s a pretty good representation of the pace of this storyline. It was slow for the most part and I was thrilled when it took off. It was like a hidden surprise or something. I really liked how the author worked in a suspense plot. It was completely unexpected and I had absolutely no idea who was behind the treacherous acts.

Back to the characters… Ethan Everest was hard to get to know. A year ago the main characters met on a fire escape at a party. After an almost-kiss that wasn’t meant to be, Ethan’s life made a turn for the worse. He took the easy over the compelling. He went with the familiar rather than the intriguing and unknown. So the connection that he shared with Singer went by the wayside. A year later, they’ve been in the same place at the same time on many occasions, and finally Ethan takes the step to really introduce himself to Singer. However, his life isn’t the way he needs it to be to be with her. He’s not the same guy she met a year ago. He was a man holding secrets pretty close to his chest and he kept sending out mixed signals to poor Singer. Luckily she was so far gone in her infatuation with him that she wasn’t going anywhere. She took what she could get.

Singer was a sweetheart. She had a huge heart and wanted everyone to be happy, including herself. She had big dreams of making something of herself in NY and although they hadn’t come to pass yet, she wasn’t willing to give up. It was easy for her to fall in love with Ethan and he with her because they were both characters easy to fall for.

So now that I’m done with this story, will I continue to promote S.L. Scott’s work? Heck yes! I enjoyed this story a lot and I believe that other fans of romantic suspense and true love will be entertained by it as well. I look forward to the next book of hers I can get my hands on ;)
