This was categorized as a romantic comedy, but I didn’t find it to be comedic in the least. The story revolves around Dalton and mostly Nora. She meets Dalton basically by dumb luck, when she finds Dalton’s lost brother who has down syndromes and she helps him find his way back to his brother Dalton.
Reading the synopsis I expected this story to be different then what actually occurs. The title shouldn’t have been King’s redemption, it was more like Nora’s redemption. It was all about her drama, finding herself and her backbone. King never “redeemed” himself in my opinion, not that he really needed any redeeming. He was angry, bitter, closed off and an all around a-hole because he let’s guilt eat him up inside for past mistakes. Where Nora was a “good girl” who really just seemed to lack experience and was surrounded most of her life by d-bags and had low self-esteem.
The story was definitely entertaining, but the plot didn’t even involve their love story. They didn’t even have any type of relationship, they were basically acquaintances the entire story. The entertainment was in all the drama Nora found herself in and dealing with the d-bags in her life. Dalton basically teaches her to grow a backbone and man up. There was no real romance. Just a few steamy sexy scenes. Lastly, the epilogue was written as a few pages of cliff notes. I guess the author just wanted a one and done with this story and characters, which is too bad because this story and characters had a lot of potential.
