Ambivalent by Stefanie Torres–Review

5 ‘Dr. Endowed BIG’ Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I had a job to do.
An assignment I had been hoping for.

To anyone else it might have appeared easy.

Interview the well-known plastic surgeon, Dr. Kean Bennett.

Determined to succeed, I powered right into it.

Except the man hated the media with an inexplainable passion.
And he despised me for being another annoying journalist chasing a story.
His story.

That’s when I screwed up.
I gave the surgeon the power to destroy me.
Complete obliteration.

I’ve always believed there could be good hiding in the darkness, but maybe I was mistaken.

My problem?
I came to that conclusion much too late.
I had already risked my life to get what I wanted.

Well, I can officially say, I was anything, but Ambivalent to this book. I, absolutely loved it! For a debut novel, Ms. Torres did a wonderful job. I, thoroughly enjoyed, the story and interaction between Kean and Ciaran.

I have noticed others mention that the story was a little slow in the beginning, but Ms. Torres was giving some much needed background/history of the characters, which I can understand as being slower paced. For me, the pacing in the beginning kept progressing at an even pace until BAM, the mystery and intrigue enters. This is when Ambivalent almost kicks into overdrive. It was very hard to put down and therefore, I read it in one sitting.

Ambivalent is an unexpected enemy to lover’s scenario. Ciaran is a journalist and given the assignment of writing about Dr. Kean Bennett and getting as much personal information as possible. Since Kean, detests interviews, you can imagine how this went down. Ciaran is anything but a plucky, resourceful, although somewhat accident-prone individual. Through the course of trying to get information from Dr. Endowed, those hateful feelings turn into romantic ones.

Ambivalent is more than a romance book. There is quite a bit of mystery, intrigue and ‘who done it’ moments all leading to a greater storyline. Honestly, I absolutely LOVED this book. It kept me on my toes trying to figure out what was going on. It was well written and certainly spicy, romantic and hot. I, highly recommend this book to you if you’re interested in a hot romance with a side of whodunit. Congratulations Ms. Torres on an excellent debut novel!
