Although I personally don't like dystopian novel but I might give this particular one a try due to your detailed review. Thank you for the wonderful review.

I love dystopian novels however this one sounds like the author may have cut corners to make everything fit. Thank you for the review.

Post by Kimberly Grow » 07 Jun 2019, 18:56

Thank you for this wonderful review! I read the first three chapters and I am already loving it. I understand your hesitation about the novel moving too fast, but is it really any different than The Bachelor where everyone is in love on the first day? I think that this is something that I can handle so I will be giving this one a full read.

From a sampling, this seems like an interesting dystopian romance story. It might be worth a second look. Well done.

Being forced to marry someone will be eternal misery for me. I wonder how the regime finds matches. Based on DNA? What will arranged marriages achieve? Longevity? Equal wealth distribution? Less health issues? I'm certainly intrigued. Is love strong enough to conquer lust?

This looks like an interesting romance story. I honestly have not red any dystopian novel, so I am more intrigued to read this book. I wonder how the events would turn when the contestants are already in the island. Thanks for a nice review!

Never read dystopian novels before since I didn't find any that agrees with me. However, this one is interesting. Considering it's also a fast read, I'll be putting this on my tbr. Thanks for this insightful review :tiphat:

The plot is interesting and new. The thought of being married against your will is scary and this being the focus of the novel makes it exciting. Looking forward to reading this. Congrats!

I'm going to pass this up due to the mature content. I'm sure that a story about competing for a chance to marry whoever you want might interest others. Nice review.
Just reading... :techie-studyingbrown: :techie-studyinggray:

The law of arranged marriages sounds very strict, but then there is a way to be able to choose who to marry by entering the Temptation Trials. If one succeeds to fight off temptation, then the one can choose a marriage partner. This contest sounds almost like the Hunger Games, but the focus is getting through temptation. I am glad that the book is written well and has a twist.
