4 Star Review by Ashley
I've been a big Rebecca Rohman fan since one of my reading groups read Love, Lives and The D.A. a few years ago. And in that time I have read every other book this author has published, except Uncorked. Not sure why it took me this long to go back and read her debut but I am glad I finally did.
I loved that the intensity was there from page one and didn't let up until the very end. I love me a good romantic suspense story- and while we knew who was responsible for most of it, trying to figure out the other person involved in the fiasco surrounding Chella had my mind going in a few different directions- all of them turned out to be wrong!
I felt for Chella and the awful predicament she found herself in all for trusting the wrong person years ago. She is beyond selfless even when her own happiness takes the hit. Her life has been nothing but looking over shoulder and avoiding getting close to anyone. Until one Mitch Mariani is put into her world. I really admired Mitch's patience and persistence in trying to woo Chella. Even when she kept shooting him down and pushing him away (for his own good according to her). Through all his advances and her rejections, their feelings continued to grow for one another- I let out a happy, relieved sigh when Chella FINALLY came to her senses and decided to let Mitch in. And then my heart broke as I learned the tale of all that she had suffered. With their budding relationship things got even more muddled for Chella. It was danger on top of eye popping shock on top of one twist on top of another turn. And don't even get me started on Mitch's mother!
I felt Uncorked, for all its wonderful intensity, could've ended a few times before it actually did. It was as if ideas kept sparking into Rohman's head and she had to work it into the book somehow. However, it wasn't like one of those movies you watch and go come-on! End already! Everything layered together to keep my heart pounding and my eyes glued to my kindle. I did not want to put this one down even when the device kept slipping from my tired hands. And oh my goodness- the ending- both of them- WOW!!! I didn't see that coming at all but it was so perfectly suited to everything Mitch and Chella had been through and overcome and it left me nodding my head-yes.
