The genius that is Penny's series is that while yes, they are all part of a series and there is a cohesion about her books that makes it clear that we are indeed reading a (fantastic) series and yet every book is different. NSH brought us Sir Handsome Mc HotPants and the adorable Janie, FWoB we have Freaking Nico and Elizabeth's boy band love, in Love Hacked we have Alex with the voice and Sandra with her ZING and now we have poetry writing Drew that will melt your butter and Ashley that will melt your heart.
Drew is probably the most swoon worthy male lead I've read in a while and deserves to be up there with the ranks of Mr. Darcy, Jaime Fraser, and Captain Wentworth. "Sugar, I'd be honored to catch you anytime you'd like to fall." "Since I first laid eyes on you and felt sorry for every beautiful thing that was made no longer resplendent, nullified by your being." I could go on and on. His poems and the epilogue!!! Drew's words are so beyond beautiful, just swoon.
This truly is a romance novel and I seriously think it's Penny's best. There are scenes that are laugh out loud funny and zany, the hot sexy times, like the rest of the Knitting in the City books, but this time around we have an added layer of emotional depth and real honest to god romance. This book is just plain beautiful and I can not recommend it enough.
Penny's touch is still there. There are funny moments and enough craziness to steal smiles here and there but this isn't a funny book.
Love is everywhere, bringing pain and joy, hurting and soothing, bad and good emotions.
It's a book about life and the fact that we don't know what's expecting us behind every turn. It's a story that echoes the wedding vows "...for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish; from this day forward until death do us part"
PS: there are also lots of goody-sexy BONUSES!
A Viking with a poet's soul...
A bunch of crazy bearded brothers with unconventional habits (The schedule! Oh God, the Schedule!)...
Nico... Aw, everybody loves Nico!
I really liked both Ashley and Drew. I could identify with Ashley's personality so much. Sometimes shy, a huge reader, raised in the South with the manners and colloquial phrases that come with it, etc. She was sweet, strong and giving. Drew was the strong, silent type on the outside, but he was sensitive without being weak. He let everyone lean on him and did everything he could to help the Winston's through their time. Watching him and Ashley's slow burn into falling in love was such a sweet experience. I loved their shared love of poetry. Drew said and thought the sweetest things. He had a true poets soul. I was swooning over how sweet they were together. They were a very perfect match for each other. I liked that not too much detail is given on Drew's past and that he was celibate. I liked that they're physical relationship was so slow to happen (never thought I would say that!) and that they waited until they were in love to go there. I appreciated that the backdrop of their love story was Mrs. Winston's dying, but there was not a depressing feeling and there is a lot of hope for the future in the book. I also loved the glimpses of the Winston brothers and Ashley's knitting group.
Penny Reid is such an amazing author. She's a genius. I love her smart, strong heroines and strong but sensitive heroes. Her characters have so much depth to them and her stories have so many layers. Reading her books are just a lovely experience and they leave me with such a happy feeling. They are a great blend of humor and sweetness. I am looking forward to much more from this talented author!
