4 Heart Review by Ashley
First things first, Love Her Madly is not your typical romance but man! It is so worth the read. Compelling, captivating and all consuming. I was hooked from the very first page.
I loved Gini. Her kindness. Her goodness. Her tender heart. My heart just ached for this sweet, innocent woman who had no clue what she was up against. But despite all of it, she didn't lose who she was. Yes, she grew and she learned but she never stopped believing and that was because of Darius.
Oh Darius. So broody and intimidating but with a heart of gold under that brash exterior. He did the best he could for the girls in his care. Put on a brave face when inside he was questioning everything. Especially how to forget about Gini and the seed of hope she planted in his head. He wasn't sure how it happened but he did the one thing he said he wouldn't, he fell. Hard.
Even though they both wanted to get away from the life they were in, it was impossible. Cue the scheming and plotting and underhandedness. And in the middle of Darius and Gini's budding love story there was this undercurrent of danger and demise just waiting to do them in.
Kudos to Jessica Ruben for daring to write this book. Love Her Madly is full of culture and customs that were new to me and at times left me speechless. Darius and Gini's love story was wonderfully original and had me hanging on every word. And that ending was oh so satisfying.
