Review: WANTED IN PARADISE by Kate Ashenden

Jasmine was one of the survivors of the typhoon that hit the Philippines. After an ordeal like that, Jasmine realized how precious life is and it should never be squandered at a boring and stressful banking job. So she quit.   

“It gave her a sense of hope that there was something better to come. There had to be a way to find the sunshine behind the grey clouds.” (13)

Meanwhile, memories of the man she’s wanted but could never have flitter through her mind. Now Romeo was a singing superstar. Soon, the media blares with tragic disappearance of the star’s brother. Could this be a possible suicide?

A reunion is brought on by tragedy, and a tragedy inspires a benefit concert. With Jasmine helping him, the two become closer.  

The writing had a deep and lovely prose, and the story kept a leisurely pace. It was simple with an overdramatic flair, especially with emotions. At times, it got a little slow and complicated.

A decent read.

My rating: 3 stars
