Viki’s review: Beard up by Lani Lynn Vale

 Ghost [gohst] noun: the soul of a dead person, a disembodied, vague, shadowy spirit wandering among or haunting living persons; a mere shadow or semblance; a trace.

That noun sums up Ghost and what his life has become with painful precision. He is barely living, merely existing but never thriving. There wasn’t much that could pull him from the darkness he willingly inhabits…except one thing. Her.
She is the reason he’s done what he’s done, and his life has become what it has become.

He haunts his former life, lurking in the background, surviving on occasional glimpses of the only thing good that is left in his miserable life. The horror he has inflicted upon her is nothing compared to the terror that waits for her when someone moves in to take her from him.

The thing about being stuck in the past is that it is like walking through life backwards. She is always looking back, so she doesn’t see what is happening in front of her. Unfortunately for her, it turns out that the ghosts of the past aren’t nearly as terrifying as the monsters of the future.

They say that true love is like a ghost, something that many talk about but few have seen. It’s a good thing for that, too, because he’ll need that element of surprise to protect her. Hopefully when the dust settles, he’ll be able to resurrect more than just himself.

My thoughts:

I’m not happy with myself but this one is going to be short and brief. I love Lani Lynn Vale books; they are kind of a fix point of my reading list in every month. But I’m ashamed to say this particular story I didn’t like at all. Okay so I expected that I won’t like it as much as the previous ones, because I could put it together based on the snippets we saw earlier. But then I didn’t expect to like Michael story either which was similarly laid up or I ended up loving that one. But anyway back to the point.

I didn’t like the plot or how the story was built up. Also I found it boring a lot of times and skimmed over a lot of it. Just the reasons behind the whole secretive thing, everything that went on behind the storyline just didn’t go over well for me. I also didn’t like how there was the jumping in time which wouldn’t be a problem if it showed important moments but they were inconsequential regarding to the storyline no matter how cute.
I wasn’t over the moon for the characters either. They weren’t bad just neutral, especially Mina.

I sad to say but it simply wasn’t for me. It fits the author MO so if you like her works there is every chance you will love it because my problem wasn’t with the writing style or anything I just didn’t enjoy the plot.
