Let's start with Cora.... If you don't remember who Cora is or if you have no clue who Cora is, well here is a reminder.... Cora is Gabe and Ember's daughter, well technically Gabe's daughter and Ember's step-daughter... We meet cute little Cora way way way back in Gabe and Ember's book Highway Don't Care..... Cora didn't really have a great start in life with her wicked donor mother, who kept her from her father for the first few years of her life.... But I think after she joined Gabe and Ember at free with her "uncles, aunts, and cousins" that her life seemed to turn out all right... Now Cora's all grown up and living on her own away from her parents. Though Cora seems to be very quiet and timid at times, I did really like her. She had a bit of a funny side to her.
Coke has been almost as unlucky in life as Cora has been.... Though after divorcing his stuck up ex-wife, he definitely seem's to be putting his life back together and on track for the past two years. He also has a teenage daughter that he is extremely close to. He likes to think that he has already lived his life to the fullest, but when Cora pops into the picture she sure does take him for a wild ride.
Alright although this book was an enjoyable read and most of the character's were likeable in this book. I was say that there's just something missing from this Simple Man Series for me. And I really feel like its those family connections that Mrs. Vale concentrated on so hard on her other series. I feel like in her other series the character's are all interwined and feel like family and they seem to be involved in other books. But in this series I really feel like its lacking in the last few books. I mean in Janie and Rafe's book James and the men of free where there. Than it seemed to start lacking in Kayla's book, which was understandable since her father Dougie died when she was young, but James was still there a bit. Now in Johnny and Junes book there was like absolutely NO family connections, because Johnny wanted to push his family away. Than in this book once again there was like NO family connections or togetherness. I mean sure Gabe showed up a few times. But it was just kind of weird how Cora didn't even introduce Coke to her family and let them know they were together, even when her dad shows up the first time when that one thing (not giving anything away here) happens. It was kind like it was just assumed that they were together. Also like where was Ember? For Cora stating at the beginning of the book that Ember was her "best friend" despite her being her mom, Ember didn't make an appearence until the Very End of the book. Also what was with Janie's attitude in this book, she's been getting on my nerves in this series!!!!! I don't know there's just something lacking in this series for me!!!!!
I'm giving this book 3 Stars out of 5 and I really hope that the next book is much better!!!
I think LLV to some of the feedback she got from previous books in the series and made some changes, but it looks like she forgot to change the synopsis. The synopsis talks about how there is a large age gap between Cora and Coke. When you read the book there are only 10 years, which is really not that big of a gap.
I feel like the book was going at steady pass up until 75% of the book, then all of a sudden it speeds through the end and does not tie some loose end.
On a side note, every book LLV add to this series makes me like Janie less and less.
He’s a retired army drill sergeant, so he is more than used to getting his way.
And if he can’t have it his way? Well, let’s just say that’s never happened before…
At least not until Cora Maldonado walks into his life, demanding he fall in line, or she’ll find a way to make his life hell.
He finds out fast that Cora marches to the beat of her own drum, and a lot of times that drum takes her farther away rather than closer to where he feels she needs to be.
He can’t stand it.
He wants her, and he has to have her.
It doesn’t matter that she’s younger than him, and has a father that would rather see him dead than have his baby girl anywhere near him. Nor does it matter that his ex-wife is highly offended that she’s been replaced with a much younger woman.
Despite the odds stacking against them, he’ll fight for what he wants.
His ex-wife, her father, and their age difference be damned.
Another great book by this author!!!!! If your looking for new authors you can not go wrong with any of LLV books. I loved Coke and Cora!!!!
I really love Cora. I'm an introvert too, so I get the whole wanting to be alone deal. I love how she gives comics to show how she feels.
Coke is a great man. He's a great father and he works hard. Even if he has a psycho ex-wife/baby momma.
I don't want to say too much and give anything away. There is a huge surprise at the end that I now want more of!!! Please!
"The best thing about having a penis is sharing it with people who don't." - Coke to Cora
"I thought you were in a bad mood, but it's been a few years, so I guess that's just who you are now." - text from Janie to Cora
Like their age gap. The way it mentioned, you would think it's 20 year difference instead of 10. And that's no biggy for me, so I didn't get it. Which by the way was one of the reasons, why this story got my attention. There is other things, that bothered me, but talking about them means spoilers.
This was a bit of a surprise. I loved this couple together. Probably my favorite in this series thus far. I was curious about Coke in the last book and he lived up to my expectation. Cora is different then I thought she would be and was thrilled to be taken by surprise. Excellent read.
