And one of the hardest choices Aurora Alexander will ever have to make.
Newly divorced, single mother Aurora is desperately trying to move on with her life.
After a string of unsuccessful blind dates, she turns to internet dating.
Everyone does it, so it has to be safe. Right?
Hot one night stands. Sexting. And an Alpha man who sweeps her off of her feet.
Aurora thinks she has found her happily ever after.
But among her suitors is one man who plays by a different set of rules.
Someone who isn’t who he says.
Will Aurora figure out who does’t have her best interest at heart.
Or is she destined to become a Statistic?
What I liked: Statistic seems like a relavant story with all the internet dating I hear about. I even have a few friends who found their loves on internet match sites. That ticked a box and I took a chance.
First, the synopsis mentions four men but one is really a non-starter date wise just some messaging and texting back and forth. I found Aurora to be brave about taking some of the chances she does; not necessarily smart but she put herself out there and didn't obviously pick the jerks. Two of the men appear honest and upfront about their reasons for using the internet to connect and the other is a good stress relief sex partner.
There are thoughts Ms Robertson includes from the "bad guy's" thoughts that ramps up the tension. One of Aurora's interests is more than he seems.
What I didn't like: I almost put Statistic down several times. The reason: the maturarity level of Aurora and the writing. The writing felt contrived on some issues and immature in others. The big word here is ALMOST. The plot kept me guessing and a character caught my interest. The plot was just enough to keep me going. I could have read the ending and been done with it but I'm a clue searcher so I kept at it.
Here's the thing, I'm glad I kept at it but this is one of the weirdest reviews I've ever written. I wasn't sympathetic to the main character, I had a very hard time with the writing style but the plot just would not let me go. I had to know and I wanted to follow the clues and not just read the ending. About the ending. I DID NOT SEE THAT COMING!!
Because of the ending, I might pick up the next in the series. Recommended if you want something a bit different and love surprises!!
