My Rating: 3/5 stars

My Review: “Sometimes we have to take risks, even put our lives in jeopardy to do what's right.” 

An Uncertain Choice is a romantic book that will fill the heart of all. It is absolutely sweet and it will have all the hopeless romantics screaming for more.

Rosemarie is the rightful rule of her kingdom after her parents passed away in the plague that swept the country. At birth she was promised to become a nun on her 18th birthday. As Rosemarie's world is filled with loneliness and hopelessness, her godfather rides into town announcing that there might be a way out of the promise her parents made so long ago. In order for Rosemarie to be free, she must find true love and get married before her 18th birthday. Can she fall in love with one of the three handsome nights her godfather presented her? Or will she be forced to rule her country form a convent?

I definitely had mixed emotions about this book, especially in the beginning. Yet as I got farther into the book, it just became too sweet of a tale to not fall in love with.

I found the beginning of the book to be quite boring and dry. I wasn't immediately in love with the main character so it was definitely hard to get started. Yet as the book went on the main character matured and became more bearable. She's still not one of my favourite characters, but I definitely like her and respect her.

This book does not provide much mystery. If you like a book with twists and turns that keep you on your feet, this is not the book for you. Right from the beginning of the book I guessed who the antagonist was and what exactly will happen at the end, and everything happened exactly as I predicted. 

I must say that the world building in this story is quite nice. While Rosemarie's kingdom isn't exactly the greatest, the author definitely made you imagine exactly how everything was so you could picture the world in your head. Even though its not the greatest world building, its still very well written!

The love story in this book is the one that got me. It's absolutely adorable and I definitely ship the couple so much! They are absolutely perfect for each other and complement each other so well. I love how the author incorporated that they simply make each other stronger and help each other grow. If it wasn't for the romance in this book and the fantastic relationships the author created, I don't know if I would finish this book.

Overall, this story had an amazing romance that everyone would enjoy. There could have been some improvements made but its still a fantastic short read perfect for any audience. 

Happy Reading,
