Blurb: “What started the checks? Where did the money come from? Who was doing all this in my name? How did I become an instant Billionaire? Why did I become the target of every gangster, terrorist, drug cartel and bad guy in the world… plus law enforcement?” Ronald Sizemore, mailman
Review: This was something that I wasn’t really sure I was going to like. There isn’t really a blurb to go off of so I felt like I was going in blind.
I never really felt any kind of connection with the characters, it never seemed to really get inside their heads, it was all just surface stuff. I felt like the romance happened too fast, although that might not be the case because I didn’t really get a sense of time until the author mentioned three years later.
I mean, big things were happening so I should not have been shocked that so much time had passed but like I said, I didn’t really get a sense of time.
The book did run a little long, even though the chapters were short. I feel like there could have been more to this story, something more sinister. At the beginning, I felt like something horrible was going to happen but as the story went on, that feeling went away and didn’t really pan out anyway.
The ending was a little surprising but I think it would have been even more surprising had there been any connection to the characters. The idea seems like a good one but I do think there could have been more psychological thriller type stuff going on or maybe that’s just because of everything else I’ve read, maybe I’m being a little biased.
Thank you for reading my review.
