First Chapter Review + Giveaway: Unconditional Love in the Dark by Victoria Warren Jackson

Victoria Warren Jackson is on tour with Pump Up Your Book with her romance novel, Unconditional Love in the Dark. 

BLURB:  It has been a long time since Samantha has felt loved by a man. For now, she just wants to be left alone. She continues to live a lonely life, but an early morning visit to the beach changes everything. Her future husband, Isaiah, enters the picture.

Their marriage is every woman’s dream until Isaiah becomes distant and remote. Samantha becomes curious about his behavior and the absence of his immediate family. One part of her wants to overlook the uneasy feelings, but curiosity causes her to search for the truth.

Isaiah has a disturbing secret. Once Samantha discovers the truth, she is forced to travel a painful journey to recovery. Is Samantha prepared to lose her husband forever?

Samantha finally learns about self-love. She is torn between salvaging her marriage and the desire to find true love. Samantha is unable to deny her life will never be the same even if she decides to remain married to Isaiah.

COVER: I like the color scheme of this cover, which is what first drew me to want to know more about the book. I like that it hints at something not told in the blurb.

FIRST CHAPTER: It's mid-December and Samantha is walking along the beach in the early morning after two hours of restless sleep.

KEEP READING: Though the character isn't named in the opening chapter, the reader can assume they are meeting Samantha. Told in first person, this story is about a sad, lonely woman who is walking along the beach and considering life. I have to admit I wasn't hooked right away, but I would like to stick with it another chapter or two to see if that changes. First person narration can be tough to write, but it also allows for great insight into the character, which I like seeing here. The author does a good job of creating the emotions Samantha is coping with at this moment in her life.
