My set of issues involved:
1- Dialogue. In the beginning, they had great conversations and the romance had a great slow burn element to it, but as the book progressed the dialogue became a chore to read. The characters became long winded about random stuff and it all seemed kind of pointless.
2- Too Much. There was too much to the story. Too many mini-dramas packed into this book. I'm not sure if this series was originally meant to be 4 books, but it seemed like there was a ton of stuff thrown in to set the basis for the upcoming book about Finger. I don't think all that was needed. Plus, it added pointless drama.
3- Convenience. The whole series suffered from convenience and coincidence. **spoilers** How convenient that if you are going to find a child being held hostage that it should belong to your brother. And, said brother's pissed off girlfriend who then moves in with your ailing mother also happens to be the same person Dig saved from a rape and torture scenario and to show her thanks decides to be a surrogate for Dig's widow and her new husband.... But this is the series overall. It obviously didn't bother me too much since I inhaled the series over a holiday weekend.
4- Cheese and oddities. This book had a cheesy romanticism that the other three books didn't have. Yes, they are romance books, but they are MC books. It's supposed to be a bit darker than chick lit. This one went over the top with the sentimentality. Oddities = weirdly placed sex scenes. I'm not sure why the author felt the need for them to have sexual encounters in public places. It just came off as odd filler.
5- Length. Damn this book was 150 pages too long. Mostly because of points 1 and 2. Sadly, the length dropped the book in value for me. I started skimming pages and couldn't wait for it to end.
I wasn't expecting this. Butler hasn't had a great reputation. He has messed up again and again, as we have seen in the first books. But redemption comes in the mostly unlikely of circumstances. Sometimes Karma can create the moment that can change everything. Only if you are paying attention.
Tania has led a life where everything was always just "fine". Until Karma created that moment in time where she could choose a different path. To borrow from another series/author. That BOOM. Will they both pay attention? Will they both grab this moment in time and make it theirs for eternity?
Cat Porter has really out done herself with this one. I didn't think I would love it as equally as I did Dig and Locke's stories. But Butler and Tania have captured my heart. Beautifully written, Like poetry in prose of romance thru heartache. It takes work and dedication to grab and hold onto what you dream to have. It's sometimes bumpy and ugly. And sometimes it all pays off. I don't want to let go of them. I want to keep reading until they are old and gray and sitting on the porch swings. Fans of this series will be extremely happy with Butler. And I look forward to Finger's story next.
