There are no explicit sex scenes. However, some readers may be offended by some of the language and portrayals of gay/transgender people.
This series may very well be the only Romance series that I've actually read more than one of.
This particular book is about Faith Holland and her life sort of. She's a very likable character and seems unfairly burdened with life's challenges. She's tough and she's a trooper and I liked that about her.
There is one moment in this book that I found very sweet and tender between she and Levi and I kind of loved it.
Overall, I enjoyed the book as a somewhat guilty pleasure. The writing, character development, and plot(s) were all well done. A couple of minor things irritated me though.
1) while the writer exhibited a "modern and progressive" acceptance of the gay ex, I was disappointed in the disparaging treatment of the transgendered character (likely not a transvestite as indicated in the novel). Granted the comments and response were not totally without tolerance, but a little research would have allowed for greater sensitivity in that scene.
2) using the phrase "hemorrhoid" as a curse is just distracting and ick. "He's such a hemorrhoid." "Oh, hemorrhoid . . . " IDK just bugged me.
The painintheass Levi is EVERYWHERE Faith looks. He is also a painful reminder of everything (Jeremy) she lost. Levi is the reason she is not happily married. He ruined her wedding (at least in her mind). Levi wants NOTHING to do with Princess. She is so innocent and blind, she could not see what was right in front of her.
This book is filled with warmth, wise cracking charm and irresistible characters. I could not put this book down. I carried it around with me on my phone until I was finished. It is a very fast read and completely engaging. I like the adult characters, their foibles and lifelong interactions as well as the themes of forgiveness and maturation. Faith is a really flawed but layered protagonist and fun to read. The location writing is really amazingly good; you can't help but see this place in your mind's eye.
I found the content regarding seizure disorders and ice wine to be well researched and added to the depth of the backstory. I enjoy genre work that centers on adult characters. Was totally entertained by this book and will move on to more in the series.
