Review:

Adam, Enough Said keeps you interested from the beginning. The way that Lynda LeeAnne goes back and forth from Adam’s perspective to Mia’s perspective is well done and helps the reader understand the thoughts and feelings of both of the main characters and why they react in the way that they do. She is good at making the characters “real.”

The story has some unexpected twists and it’s hard to put down once you get started. Because of that, this review has been difficult for me to write. Adam, Enough Said was easy to read and was interesting but I can’t condone his poor treatment of Mia even though the author did a good job at portraying the reasoning behind Adam’s actions. It would have been just as good if the miscommunication issues between Adam and Mia had been portrayed differently. I had a problem with the way Adam treated Mia as someone he owned, as well as his anger issues. Several times they had a fight, had sex, and suddenly things were worked out. And after their constant fighting, once they were both committed to being together and having children, the anger and jealousy issues on both sides seemed to be magically resolved.

Warning: a lot of swearing.

Would I recommend this book? That’s a good question. It’s hard to put down and I liked Adam even with his issues so I am glad I read it. I don’t think, though, that I would recommend it to my single nieces who are in their early 20’s. Available on Amazon.
