Resplendent Ruin Resplendence #1Trapped in a seemingly perfect and sheltered life Juliette Mason suddenly finds herself in a place where she starts to uestion everything she thought she knew about life and love A place where she starts to doubt her dreams where nothing in her life makes. Being wrong never felt so rightJuliette Mason and Daniel Clarke had been together for years They hold top positions in the company created by their fathers but they are also in love and engaged On the surface everything seems blissful but it doesn’t take much to see the cracks in that pretty picture The couple have grown distant as pressures of the business have meant Daniel spends time away from home and Juliette is uncertain and lonely in a relationship that she thought would never change When Knox enters Juliette's life she sees a rude and obnoxious person but her heart sees someone else With her mind thinking one thing and her body and heart another their relationship changes as does the inner battle she is facing“Underneath all those layers of sarcasm and snide remarks she saw kindness and compassion” “Juliette had never felt so torn in her life She knew the difference between right and wrong”Cheating It’s an ugly word to describe betrayal and pain and one it’s hard to put a positive spin on What happens though when black and white is not so clear cut When choices are made not cavalierly but with thoughtful painful deliberation My line in the sand is cheating Normally This story had me feeling the pain all the way around in this story of secrets revelations and betrayals I felt Juliette’s pain as she tried to work through her feelings for both Knox and Daniel not really knowing until the end which way things were going to go And that journey This story was so full of highs and lows that my heart needed a break by the end As Knox coaxed Juliet out of her shell and had them experiencing new adventures together the joy of those moments were ones to savorThere are than the three principals in this story and they factor into much of the drama that ensues There are family dynamics with unconditional love and acceptance on one end and manipulation and betrayal at the other There is every emotion you can think of with each one laid out in a way to touch your heart—whether it is love or “dislike” because who would hate a fictional character right But wait These people aren’t real Well they sure feel real to me as each up and down each high and low had me embracing Juliette and Knox even There is sex—oh yes mind blowingly delicious and tasty tasty tasty sex The feelings behind the actions make it for me though as the story ends in an entirely different place than I thought going in While the ending had me a bit perplexed as decisions were made and unmade based on not flimsy but let’s say uestionable in my mind information I was certainly willing to give some leeway as it in no way affected my enjoyment of the story “I want you to be mine”“I want to be yours too”This is the first in the series and I can’t wait for the next Diane 45 stars
