I did love this hero. Will's an alpha-nerd and a virgin; you definitely don't see this everyday! I loved how he is socially awkward, taciturn, and even a little obsessive and fixated on the heroine. I do think the author missed a great opportunity to make the book more about this intense yet vulnerable man's emotional, childhood scar.
I think the heroine's sexual assualt was an intrusive plot device for discussing the hero's own tragic episode. It's almost as if the stalker co-worker is thrown in to force that conversation about Will's past, and that wasn't really needed, in my opinion. I would much rather there had been some sort of issue develop between the H/h over his past and not over the heroine's withdrawal from him as she recovers from her own attack. The focus was more on the heroine's current issues and needs, and this made Will's emotional damage seem like an afterthought.
I felt for the heroine after her attack, but for some reason I was much more sympathetic to Will and his history. How can you not feel for a hero who cries in the shower after the heroine had done something inadvertently which reminded him of his own bad experience? He's a strong yet needy character, and I just wish that had been more the focus.
All in all, this was not a bad story. Don't want you to think that it was, but I just wanted something more for Will, something special for him. He finally gets the girl of his dreams, his first girlfriend ever, his first kiss, his first lover, and the very trauma that has made him wait for all this is confined to one conversation at the very end of the book. So much more could have been done with that. And that left me disappointed in it and maybe a little sad for this special hero.
The eroticism was underlined and bolded by the intensity of desire and depth of need the author expressed so well. This was not just a hot description of moves and and how said moves feel. The need Will felt for Jenny came through loud and clear. His lack of experience certainly conflicted with his ability to expertly arouse Jenny. We've all known the fumbling of the first time. A man with no experience cannot possibly know his way around a woman's body, cannot possibly balance interpreting her response to his touch while somehow knowing the right time to move on, the right duration, the right intensity, ect. Will's ability to do everything right was believably set up by the way the author describes his utter fascination with knowing every inch of her body by touch, taste and scent. If I say much more I will give too much away... and also have to end this review right here, ahem.Read more ›
He is a wonderful hero, tender, caring, loving. She is a perfect heroine, working hard to get back the life she wants with Will. (Tying him to the bed, at his suggestion, was perfect)
I didn't want this book to end. I kept putting it down so I could draw out the ending. I don't like to give 5 star reviews because I seldom read 5 star reviews. IMO this is a 5 star book. My only complaint would be, Evan got off too easy. He should have suffered, and suffered and suffered. But that wasn't really the point of the story.
I loved the fact there were boy names for boys and girl names for girls. Boys names for girls can be cute but, it can also be confusing.
I loved this book and I will keep it to read again. I'm looking foward to reading more of Katie Allen's books.
