    One thought on “Almost Innocent”

    1. I really enjoyed this romantic suspense The twists and turns were aplenty and kept me guessing I absolutely loved Declan, such a swoon worthy hero.The flashbacks, although not an overload and necessary to the story, still pulled me out of the story a wee bit I m not sure if it was the pacing of them or what but I think for this story a part 1 in the past and part 2 in the present would have worked better for me because the past played a huge part in the book and also in Gabby and Declan s future [...]

    2. Wowat was a powerful read I was prepared for the violence and darkness in this, but to my great relief, in spite of some challenging subject matter, it wasn t a depressing read at all and I got the feels reading it Full review to follow closer to release.Thanks to the author for my arc xx

    4. I don t read them often, but when I read a darker story with strong mysterious themes, I want to be so immersed in said story that I forget what s happening in the read world, and Carina did just that I find it difficult to put a dark book down and come back to it Once you get in the mindset to read it, I just want to devour it Carina kept me on the edge of my seat for the entire ride There s plenty of mystery with unanswered questions, questions revolving around certain events, figuring out who [...]

    5. I was lucky enough to beta read for this and Carina warned me that it was dark and even with all those warnings I didn t think it was as dark as she thought I thought it was REAL There s a difference between dark and real and I think she nailed it with this one The story had me staying up late, reading anywhere I could to complete and when she left me with the last 4 chapters missing without warning I wanted to strangle her But I love her so I let it go, begging for her to finish the story And t [...]

    7. 5 starsReview by Jen SkewesI had the honor of beta reading this book and I loved it But because I had read it in pieces I needed and wanted to read it again I wanted to sit by myself, ignore everything around me and just submerge myself into Gabby and Declan s world And I did just that And let me tell you that it was even better the second time around I knew what happened, I knew the twists and turns in this book but that didn t matter because when those moments came I was still an emotional wre [...]

    11. Well I have to say that I loved this book.Holy shit That cover That s all I m saying Collecting cluesI like following snippets of mystery without feeling like I m totally lost, and this book does that well There were bits and hints of dark, shadowy things only enough to let my own imagination fill in the blanks That said, by the time it all came out in the wash as my grandmother would say , I wasn t shocked by any of the revelations and some of them were, I think, intended to be explosive , but [...]

    18. Almost Innocent by Carina Adams is a stand alone romance tale that, while it has it s happy ever after, the disquiet it leaves on your soul will stay with you for long after While not overtly graphic about the domestic abuse situations it touches on, it is graphic enough to let your imagination work overtime on the details that are not mentioned This is the story of two young people, separated by jealousy, possessiveness, pain, and poor timing Declan misses his chance with Gabby and his older br [...]

    19.

    20.

    26.
