A Prior Engagement

A Prior Engagement 
3 of 5 stars false
Living in a world built on pretenses, Everleigh Wright discovers how carefully orchestrated her Upper East Side life has been. Trapped in an arrangement for social prestige and financial gain, she finds life is not as idyllic as she once thought.
William Ryder leads a life rich in family support and endless determination. While attending university in Manhattan, he becomes enamored with a classic beauty who holds many secrets beneath her quiet propriety. William falls head over heels crazy for her, and she falls for him and his unfaltering optimism and kindness.
William and Everleigh may come from different worlds, but their attraction is instant and their love undeniable. Hoping love conquers all, they will find out if their love is unstoppable when faced with the consequences of breaking a prior engagement.
“Right here, right now is all that matters.”


****This book was part of a blog tour I received a copy for my honest review****
The synopsis does a great job of summarizing the book so I am going to dive right into my review, this book was really hard for me to rate, parts of it were really good but other parts were outrageously bad. I loved how the story is told in third person, it you a broader picture of the story. William was a great guy, he has a great work ethic and his loyalty to family and friends is inspiring. Everleigh had a completely different upbringing yet she shares the same values and beliefs as William, the two of them have to push boundaries to stay together. There is no doubt that this author is a great writer, I just had problems with her being overly descriptive. I am all for setting the scene and getting things right but it becomes a problem when it takes a several sentences to a paragraph to describe something that could have been said in a few words. Other than that this was a good read and I will be checking out other books by this author.
