You will find yourself laughing, crying, frustrated, exasperated, upset, mourning, jumping for joy and every other emotion you can imagine as you follow Auggie and Worth's journey. You will fall in love with and also hate their three children at ties. The troubles are abundant, but the rewards are greater. We watch the The LaViere curse and how it affects the men in the family. We see how stubborn, controlled and taunted they are.
Lianna comes into the picture as a sweet soul who is an Empath. It is rewarding to watch how strong her influence is over not only the animals, but the family. How she helps heal them and in turn almost loses her life and that of her unborn son.
You will love this series and find it very emotional. Lots of heartbreak combined with renewal,love and forgiveness. A story of one families struggles,heartbreak, forgiveness and love with a HEA ending. This is definitely a five star series.
***NB: This review is for all three books. What follows below are my notes/reactions to the series overall. They're not as polished as usual because I abandoned the review at some point and it was too long ago now for me to remember all that much. But this will give y'all a good idea of what's up.***
This series is so obnoxious. Both of the main characters are insufferable. They're both from "old money" and totally narcissistic.
The most egregious offense, by far, is that the male protagonist is a psychologist, and he abuses his position with just about every patient he sees, at least as far as the reader knows. Like, he uses his body language to get a client—IN SESSION—to focus on his crotch? Just to mess with her? His whole reason for going in to the field seems to be "I like to f*ck with people's heads." Which, congratulations, how wonderful. You are a garbage human.
They spend so much time telling and not showing. There are lengthy conversations between the two main characters about their relationship, or individual families/lives, and say the most obvious things as if they're these great insights into human behavior. That sort of thing really grates on me in any writing, but in a series where one of the two main characters is a highly educated psychologist who's apparently on the cutting edge, and also "knows how people work" well enough to regularly manipulate everyone around him, the sorts of "breakthroughs" he has are just... completely unbelievable. They're not things that any grown-@ss person hasn't already figured out.
But then again, maybe I shouldn't be surprised, because these characters never seem to learn. In #1, they make the same mistake like 3-4 times. They both do very stupid things in very public/obvious ways, and don't tell each other about it, and then one of them gets part of the story elsewhere and immediately assumes the worst about the other person and flounces without even talking to the other person. Every time they resolve the conflict and "realize" they're better together and (even more) garbage without each other and they vow not to keep things from each other ever again. And then this same thing reoccurs, like, every 100 pages.
From a technical standpoint, the writing is not the worst I've seen, but I think proficient may be a stretch. The authors regularly repeat words or phrases really close together, in a distracting way, and the copyediting isn't great either. They also employ "little did we know how much worse things were about to get" phrasing <i>at least twice</i> in <i>each</i> of the three books.
Everything that happens when the two protagonists are happy is completely boring filler. Everything that makes them unhappy was ridiculous. Aside from the same miscommunication problem happening over and over, the most trope-y stuff happens. Like, in #2 there's an actual "I don't know who I am or who any of you are" amnesia-from-an-accident plot.
***This is where my notes ended, but I think y'all can see where this is going.***
