Told from Faye's POVs
Minor editing errors. Nothing that takes away from the story.
I honestly didn't except much from this book. I have had it on my wish list for a while now and saw it was free so I got it. I didn't expect to be pulled in from the very first charger but I was and I couldn't put it down.
Battle doesn't believe in love. Everyone he loves dies so why would he ever risk it. Faye seems to change all that. Or at least you hope she does.
When they meet he doesn't seem to have any interest in her, despite her best efforts... Or at least he wants her to believe that.
Battle ends up being one of the most tender and romantic H's I have read about in a long time. That doesn't mean he isn't an alpha male too though and the intimate scenes get pretty intense.
There is a huge twist at the end I didn't see coming that I won't give away but I was so happy to see the growth of both characters throughout the book.
This book is a surprise and delight. I would definitely recommend it!
First off. These characters did not feel like mid 20s.
The time gaps...I need to have more detail in the story other than for the next few months or next two weeks. So much happens in those time frames and certain moments in a relationship are too important for readers not to share...ie. when they decide to move in together. That's a big step in a relationship. There were so many others as well.
Otherwise...who can resist sexy cowboys. Certainly not I. Lived the mention of Oklahoma too. I'm an okie.
I've been waiting to read this for a while and was not at all disappointed when I did. Love the name Battle....that is truly kinda sexy for a hero's name.
The main character Faye did annoy me at the beginning by allowing everyone to walk all over her. He justified everything and all I wanted to do was yell at her to grow a pair and stand up to this in her life and not be a doormat. Out is one of my biggest pet peeves that people whine about being manipulated but don't do anything about it.
I do love Battle other than when he tried to be manipulating and a jerk. He was sweet and caring at all time to those he loved and wanted in his life. Yes he did have moments of weakness where he hurt others but it was only during some strong emotional times so it was more understandable.
I am so happy that there was a HEA for everyone because it makes the story so much better than if the inconsiderate ex came back in the picture no see than he already had. The rest of the characters were funny and exciting to give a little drama to the plot. Other than Faye's friends not being the most supportive at all times when they should have been especially during times when she was not happy. Instead of trying to help her feel better they acted more selfish and went always thinking about Faye but themselves even during the rough patch Faye and Battle were having by telling her she shouldn't be visiting them since they were with their boyfriends who were also Battle's friends.
But I really did live the book the rest of the time and I highly recommend reading it!
One thing I did appreciate was the author choosing an autistic character in the book. My 34 year old brother is autistic, so I'm a little partial in that aspect, but still, it was a nice surprise to read.
Overall, I'm really stumped about these 4-5 star, RAVE reviews. I really do hate to be the "mean" reviewer here, and say I didn't just absolutely love the book as much as the other reviewers, but I'm not going to lie, either. The book is well edited, so I know the author has potential. This book wasn't it for me, though.
