“The Brat is beyond amazing. I’ve never read anything like it. Gloag nailed this story to the ground: deeply developed characters, perfect pacing, mind blowing revelations revealed at the perfect time, intrigue and mystery that keeps your mind spinning, and a journey that will not be forgotten!”
The shocker starts on page one. You are immediately thrown into a tense funeral. Ben Kouvaris openly admits that his dead mother was a drunk, a druggie, and a whore. He is hurt, angry and relieved at his mother’s death. Then you meet Gina Williams, the only other funeral attendee, and a woman who is equally satisfied to be rid of Ben’s mother. As you can see, this is not your typical romance book. Gloag immediately exposes us to the burdens Ben and Gina carry on their shoulders and in their hearts. Through their pain you will instantly feel the trust these characters are placing in your hands – their darkest thoughts, their deepest fears – and you quickly become lured into Gloag’s world. You will get to know Ben and Gina, their family, and their friends quite well. Gloag excels in developing rich characters that continuously pushes the story to new boundaries. If this is just the first few pages, you can imagine how much Gloag has in store for her readers.
The Brat is perfectly paced. The book never drags because there is a unique blend of mystery, intrigue, drama, romance, and passion. There is no way to predict what will happen next, and the surprises are always sweeter than what you have in mind. I also enjoyed how Gloag weaves multiple facets of the heart – familial love, self love, romantic love – into her novel and I believe that is what makes the characters whole, what makes the story come alive. You are not just reading about two people’s journey to sex. You are witnessing first hand how two people hearts have been taught to love.
The Brat is beyond amazing. I’ve never read anything like it. Gloag nailed this story to the ground: deeply developed characters, perfect pacing, mind blowing revelations revealed at the perfect time, intrigue and mystery that keeps your mind spinning, and a journey that will not be forgotten!
