Review- Come What May by Faith Sullivan

Goodreads Summary:

Adam is through with love.

He unravels blaming himself for what happened with Katie.

His final moments with her echo through his nightmares.

She owns him body and soul.

To dull the pain, Adam invites a string of women into his bed. Fueled by alcohol and desperation, his meaningless hook-ups provide little comfort. When he closes his eyes, it's Katie he sees.

The only one who helps to ease his guilt somewhat is Jada. But as his new ambulance partner, Adam considers her off limits. He doesn't want to get seriously involved with anyone, much less her. Yet he can't stop fantasizing about the feel of her caramel skin against his.

Despite his intentions, Adam's bond with Jada deepens as they respond to a series of emotional calls. Their mutual attraction becomes undeniable. But how can he give his heart to Jada when it still belongs to Katie?


REVIEW:

Just like I felt with the first book of the Heartbeat seriesHeartbeat (my review of which can be read here), I don't know what to feel about Come What May. With both these books by author Faith Sullivan, I know that no matter how much time I give myself to think and ponder over them, it's just not going to be enough. I love the way Faith's books end but they leave me feeling confused, empty and utterly shocked, in a good way because I'm weird that way. 
Come What May starts out with Adam starting a new life after losing Katie. He completely changes his life by opting for drinking and casual sex, something I would never have imagined the Adam from Heartbeat go for. He was just too good to go that way. But things change. He is broken, depressed and sad. He keeps seeing Katie everywhere and he can't seem to have a hold on himself. I really don't know if I love or hate Adam in 
Come What May  There were so many times when I wanted to comfort him, but then some dumb things that he did at some point came up and changed the whole way in which I look at him. Ugh. I don't know. All I can say is that the Adam from Come What May is very different from the Adam we met in Heartbeat. The only common aspect to both is his love for Katie. And the fact that paramedics is still his life. 
And that's where he meets Jada. Jada was a nice girl who was just as broken as Adam and had a past as heartbreaking and devastating as his. There were times when even she got on my nerves, but the poor girl has seen a lot of trouble and my heart cried out for her. I loved how she remained casual with Adam even though she had really strong feelings for him. She tried to put it all away and I was always with her when she was trying to teach Adam a lesson in a subtle way. She truly helped Adam heal and I only wish she herself can heal soon too because she a nice girl. 
Somehow, when together, Jada and Adam seemed comfortable and easy going. They are both assigned as partners on the ambulance Adam drives and they make for a great team. The romance between the two is just about brewing when something or the other comes up and cools it off. I couldn't help compare Jada and Katie and I really have no idea which girl I want Adam to end up with in I Am Yours. All I can say is that I am really looking forward to the final book. 
Author Faith Sullivan's writing is again very smooth and simple. I love the length of her books and how details are given without making it sound very boring. The alternating points of views were essential and made both Jada and Adam's sides of the story understandable and real. 
Come What May was very emotional and I experienced an assortment of feelings while reading it. Even though I loved the way Heartbeat ended, I still am not sure of my final thoughts on it. After Come What May  however, I've understood Adam better and the book itself was a notch higher than the first book, so the fact that the books are getting better and better gives me immense hope for a nice ending to the stories of each of the characters.

  5. No.No No! What is happening? Is it a love triangle but like in different realities? I really want to know who Adam ends up with too! I think he loves Katie but Jada might be good for him. That's what I've gathered from your review. I'm really nervous to start this series now, knowing that both the books have major cliffhangers. I think I'll wait for the final book to be out and read it back to back. Though I'm glad that you are enjoying this series. Great review, Sarika!

    1. Aman! You should just read these books and we will discuss our theories on it. I can't wait for the last book to come out. You better read them all back to back. That's the safest option. Thank you! :)
