Omg! Kneel was flipping fabulous, like smile, scream and cry fabulous. I’m not familiar with this author but after reading Kneel I can say for certain, she’s got some serious talent. Once I started Kneel it was impossible to put down. The blending of present to past gives readers a deeper input on the complicated and tumultuous relationship they shared.
This book is told in Iris’s POV but we do get a bonus of Jamie at the end. Nonetheless I had no problem with getting Jamie’s feel due to descriptive illustrations told by Iris. I adored Iris’ character, she was sweet, passionate and giving. From early on you can tell her loyalty and love for Jamie was sincere and genuine. Jamie if it wasn’t because I’m Latina and the minute I hear “mami” from a man, I automatically lose my wits I would hate him. That’s like kryptonite to Latinas. Anyway the push and pull between the characters were perfect foreplay but it also shows how despite time and a huge misunderstanding these 2 characters still love each other.
I didn’t want this book to end, the title was perfect for this couple but there was so much hurt, anger and distrust to deal with. Iris sees who Jamie really is and how much he has changed. There was so many times I wanted to junk punch Jamie but his feelings and confusion always came to light. I really loved this book and can’t wait to see what book 2 in this series will bring.
