when there is nothing left but love novel ashton and scarlett review:
When There Is Nothing Left But Love novel was slow to begin with, but became increasingly enticing to the point where I could not put it down. I feel like the ending was incomplete, I wanted- for lack of a better word- more. I wanted to know more than what I was told; it came to a point where I just couldn't put this book down. Over all, this novel deserves a high rating because it was deliciously good.
When There Is Nothing Left But Love could’ve been lot better if any of the characters knew how to comunícate properly. I kept waiting for someone to just express how they felt for the story to fix itself out. There were too many secrets.
Okay, this is one of the worst-written books I have read to date. It feels like a 16-year-old, hormone-ridden, amateur who doesn't really know much about the inner workings of well - anything.
The plot is exciting, I wouldn't lie. Good storyline, I like where she is going with this but the narrative is so ordinary that I am actually short of banging my head on the wall because I paid for this shit.
It has 1857 chapters, by the way. One thousand, eight hundred and fifty-seven fucking chapters. I am on chapter 40, having already spent a bit of money to read this far and now I feel stuck because I usually don't leave "When There Is Nothing Left But Love" mid-way even if they are a piece of shit.
So the main characters are very typical. Female protagonist - Scarlett (we need a sexy name but not a bitchy sexy name, a name you wouldn't mind whispering mid-coitus) shy, petite woman who can't stand up to her husband or honestly just kill herself.
And then there is the male protagonist - Ashton (we need a hot dom name, OBVIOUSLY. Like we can't have a Billy or a Chad) who hates her, is all brooding, oozing sex and charm and is obviously very rich. I mean, we obviously wouldn't have it any other way, right? That is why I started reading it, to begin with. Oh! and Ashton can just finish "several bottles of whisky" in the duration of a few hours and just recovers miraculously by morning. Boy, I would love to have his drinking capacity - I could enter competitions!
Next is the very successful doctor best friend who never really spends time in a clinic or the hospital, he cares about the female lead and blah blah blah....
Lastly, you have the male protagonist's - Ashton's girlfriend who has a typical hot girl name - Rebecca (duh), Rebecca is obviously a manipulative bitch, again - we wouldn't have it any other way now would we?
SO this juvenile author has absolutely NO idea as to how a company works - understandable. If you don't understand the inner workings of something - DO NOT WRITE ABOUT IT. Like Scarlett has been asked to do an audit of the ENTIRE company! ALONE. You know how many CAs we hire to do that work? And they work on it for months to no end!! And this "in charge of Finance Department" lol (this had me dead) just hands her a few papers and she's like go through them! Then there is the lazy ass naming of the cities. J city, Q city, D city - and I have a honda city.
Then this doctor best friend - Jared is somehow NEVER in the hospital or a clinic?! I am a doctor, okay? And I can tell you, you’d be lucky get ONE day off! ONE! And you’d be working as many hours as you can and after that you’ll be too exhausted to live BUT even though Jared is a very successful doctor, he comes in every time when either of Ashton's women gets a small cut.
And she has somehow managed to swap pills, and conceal a 7-8 week pregnancy because somehow she is not getting morning sickness? Man, however did you manage that because I know for a fact pregnant ladies all over the globe would kill to not get morning sickness - she gets them later but mostly because she can’t keep food down. Understandable.
THEN there is the deeply flawed narrative - "he looked into my big brown eyes" Who thinks like that? Like if your s/o looks at you, do you think "well, he's looking into my deep blue eyes right now" NO, you don't even think "he's looking into my eyes right now" that is not a conscious thought people have! So, if the book was written from a 3rd person narrative, we would have also gotten a glimpse of what's going on in Ashton's head AND the big brown eyes bullshit would actually make sense!
Also, I don't think this author understands human psychology very well. You know, we fantasise about a situation and how we would react to it, but we seldom actually react the way we thought we would. When someone repeatedly insults you and humiliates you, you FEEL insulted and humiliated - that brings out sadness, anger and tears. It is a moment of chest tightening, fist-clenching angst which makes your voice heavy and you are unable to speak or even think.
When There Is Nothing Left But Love book would have bode well with me if I were 15. I would have probably even cried. But at this stage of life, I just feel like this is not how normal adults behave. People are much more complex beings and when you write about people such as in the book, one needs to understand that it is not that easy to just make up a character. You can't write or imply that a person is smart or complex and then not give any proof of it whatsoever. Also, doctors can't just "look" at a woman who is not showing and diagnose that she's pregnant. Even a lot of pregnant women can't tell that they are pregnant until they realise one fine day that they haven't gotten their periods in the past 3 months.
