Gwen has a mind of her own, even if it that mind doesn’t think things through and it leads her straight to trouble. When she sets her sights on something there is no stopping her, and of course she does it in style, right down to her shoes. The girl is shoe-ho!
I started out highlighting key parts to keep track of quotes and scenes that I liked; well that didn’t work out to well, because I damn near highlighted the whole book. I LOVED it ALL. At times I was laughing so hard that I thought I was going to choke. Warning, read this book in the privacy of your own home and not in public, or you might be at the receiving end of the Heimlich maneuver!
Kristen Ashley writes such, that you read yourself right into the book. Her books are spot on when it comes to feelings, emotions, and circumstances. She always throws in that curve ball of unexpected, when revealing what came to pass in the history of her characters, this book being no exception.
There was a whole troupe of secondary characters that I would love to see featured in future books. I don’t even feel right calling them secondary, it’s as if I do them a disservice, because they are front and center in the plot, shining stars in their own right.
Have a box of Kleenex ready for the epilogue, another thing that KA does so well. It’s as if she herself needs this closure and she gifts it to her readers knowing we need it too. I had to read it twice, the first time it was blurred and after I wiped the wet away I read it again. I had a hard time putting this one away.
They never wavered from their relationship; once they were together, they believed in each other, no questions, no doubt, they were ROCK SOLID. Oh, they had the normal hurdles to work through, but unlike other books where the couples might separate, question if they belong together, these two built on what they had. Tess had to overcome a tragic past, work on her self-esteem, and Brock did everything in his power to make her see her full worth and beauty. Of course being a KA man, that meant getting physical, and laying some wet ones on her every chance he got. Wet kisses that is, I was salivating so bad I needed a bib, the kind with the scoop on the bottom to catch the drool!
The KA trademarks were all here, the descriptive writing, attention to detail, secondary characters that take front and center, and in this book, it was the kids. They were delicious! I could picture every one of them. I also like the way she propels the story forward. She doesn’t continue from the point where it left off at the last chapter when you get to the next chapter. You think you missed out, and then she takes you back to divulge what took place to bring you to that point. I find it to be very enjoyable, because it adds an extra level of anticipation.
