The Lakes by Anna Desourdy

Title: The Lakes
Author: Anna Desourdy
Genre: Fiction
Pages: 140
Publication Date: July 9, 2013
My Rating: 3.5⭐

The story is about a young woman, Chris who works as a full-time nanny. But due to her father’s constant nagging, she accepts a corporate job offer of secretary in The Lakes Associates.

She is doing pretty good till Jeremy Lake enters the scene. He is attractive, muscular and very good natured. Chris is attracted to him but doesn’t want to be engaged with a colleague.

I was pretty clueless about how the story is going to unfold by the time I had completed 70-80% of the book. The story seemed nice since the beginning. Talking about friendship, love, attraction, hookups, career, etc. But there was nothing exciting in it. The story seemed to be very bland.

By the time I reached to last few chapters, I was pretty sure that there is a twist waiting. And I was right though not on what it might be.
The twist is interesting and not at all predictable. The development of characters is quite good and realistic. They have some flaws but they live up with them.

The writing style is good, though there are some grammatical errors.

Happy Reading!!
