Review: The Wishing Hour by Jewel Adams

Book Blurb

Celine Anderson lives an average solitary life, sticking to routine, never taking chances, and never experiencing true love. All of this changes when a handsome immortal enters her life. She has never laid eyes on the man before, but she somehow knows him and instantly trusts him completely.
Placing her life in his hands, Celine is taken on an unexpected journey and learns of an ancient prophecy she is to take part in. And her immortal guardian is intent on protecting her against those who would see her fail. He has been chosen for this calling and it is his sacred duty to keep her safe–to see the prophecy fulfilled at all cost. If they fail, it will change the world as they know it.

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Celine meets a strange man one night when he comes to her rescue against her abusive neighbor.  She trusts him immediately.  There is something about him that calls to her.  He whisks her away to safety.  She is the Woman of Prophecy and the one to save Sebastian’s people.  He is her protector and her mate.  He has saved her on several occasions while hiding in Italy.  He wants to take her to his home.  After they perform the bonding ceremony they head to Sebastian’s home.
She is welcomed with open arms as she settles in her new home and her role.  However the Urchins are still looking for her and her life is in danger until the prophecy is fulfilled.  Sebastian takes his role as her protector very seriously.  In fact when her life is threatened, he helps close in on the traitor among them.

I had a hard time getting into this book.  I like the relationship between Celine and Sebastian.  They made an awesome couple.  The plot, unfortunately, seemed one-dimensional to me.  The writing didn’t always flow.  I also would be reading and then skip chunks of the story.  I wanted to see how it ended, but it didn’t grab my interest and I casually read the story.  It was nothing to write home about.  For me the story was just all right.  I give it a 3 out of 5.
