Review: Destined to Play by Indigo Bloome

I DO NOT KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN. I am completely dumfounded by this book. It has to be one of the most bizarre books I have ever read and I really don’t know what to think.

First, if cheating spouses bother you, DO NOT READ THIS BOOK!!! If I had known there was adultery in this book, I would NOT have read it. This bothers me on so many levels. What makes it worse is that once, she started down that path, she barely thought of her hubby or children. That bothered me to such a deep level that I had a VERY difficult time finishing the book.

The excuse that was given for the experiment of going without sight for 48 hours was plausible enough for me to go along with it. Add into that, the connection that Jeremy and Alexandra have had since university just added to the plausibility of the book. I bought into it and went along with the ride.

I liked how the author Ms. Bloome had Alexandra describe everything in sensations and how she was often not able to describe things because the sensations were too much. Ms. Bloome also did a fantastic job of relaying the anxiety that Alexandra was feeling as she went through this process that Jeremy had put her on.
I found Jeremy and Alexandra to be selfish creatures. It’s hard to decide who was more selfish. Jeremy for manipulating Alexandra and her life to suit his needs or Alexandra for putting her husband and children out of her mind and doing as she pleased for the 10 days.

The cliffhanger at the end of the book was excellent and intrigues me enough that I will consider reading the next one. It’s amazing the depths of creativity that people can dream up when writing stories.

I think I would have enjoyed this book more if it were not for the cheating and barely thinking of her children. That was a HUGE obstacle that prevented me from being able to enjoy this book.

Me too! I can't even figure out why it's in the book. It doesn't add anything to the book at all! Weird!
