Reservation by Rachael Wade
A sequel to the Amazon bestselling romance, Preservation, told from Ryan’s point of view.
Old Habits Die Hard.
Ryan Campbell is not only leaving his title of Professor behind to move on to bigger and better things at Simon and Warden Publishing, he’s also become Seattle’s rising literary star. Sitting on the overwhelming cusp of newfound fame, he learns soon enough that being popular has its downside.
Attracted to the buzz surrounding his new career, former lovers begin to creep back into his life, and potential ones emerge with enticing advances. While he works to juggle reserved, yet stressful, wedding plans with Kate and his new public image, he has enough to manage without worrying about Carter and Dean—Kate’s loveable albeit eccentric friends—and their latest shenanigans.
Surrounded by a lifestyle that includes temptation at every turn, Ryan finds himself immersed in a world full of scandal and lies, where his oldest weaknesses thrive and his ghosts return to haunt him. Questioning whether his life with Kate is his best path, he must discover if he’s still capable of being the man he aspired to be when she first became his, or if happily ever after is only an illusion.
I’m not exactly sure how to describe my feelings for Reservation. Rachael Wade is my favorite author. As always, her writing style is phenomenal. I love the way her writing helps to envision the characters, plot, and the setting. On the other hand, the book was in Ryan’s point of view. For all of those who have read my review of Preservation, you know I really dislike Ryan. In Reservation, that dislike turned into absolutely cannot stand him. He’s even more arrogant and cocky in Reservation. He also treats Kate horribly. It’s a very unhealthy relationship. Out of all the new characters Neda was my favorite. Even though she was only a minor character I still have a lot of respect for her. She went through something horrible and still came out on top. I am very excited to read the next book in the series, Declaration, because it is from Carter’s point of view. Carter is my favorite character in the series. Although Rachael Wade continues to be my favorite author, this is definitely not my favorite book that she has written.
I give Reservation: 3/5.
