I also loved that even though Shane is a character we met in The Giving Trilogy, it isn't necessary to read that series first. Of course, you should because Adam and Mia are great, but it isn't a necessity. I love them. But let's face it, Adam isn't Shane. And Shane isn't Adam. He's more. Way more than I thought he would be. I highly recommend this book. You will not regret it.
Shane is every girls dream, so why so unlucky in love? Mending a broken heart and bitter taste left from his last relationship, Shane moves to Boston to start anew. After leaving the military and teaching job behind, he is now the new assistant principal. By chance, as only live would have it, he meets Remy, a waitress at a local diner.
Shane and Remy's friendship grows quickly and love soon blooms. Both healing from various reasons, they find they have more in common than first believed.
Shane has demons that continue to haunt him.
Remy harbors secrets that carry the ability to conjure demons of her own.
As Shane and Remy discover, sometimes love is not enough. Although, together, they are perfect, their imperfections may crash and burn them before they ever figure out if their love can fly.
Sit down and hold on because LM Carr takes you on a soul searching, angsty ride that'll leave you having to have more!!!
Remy lives with her drug addicted mother. Remy goes to night school working for her masters.
The dialogue between the characters is juvenile. Remy's character is bitchy and defensive. It's clear Remy hates her life. Remy seems to be envious of other people's success.
I'm in the minority with my opinion of this story. I saw all the 5 star reviews and expected spectacular. I purchased this book based on the reviews, the cover, and the book blogger who suggested it. I'm extremely disappointed with my purchase. This is the first read by this author. Having not read the first series I was newly introduced to Shane. Shane is not that fascinating of a character.
Both characters suffer from mood swings and high and low moments. Each has a trigger that sets off red flags that are constantly ignored.
Sex is the key factor in this relationship. The sexual banter is unflattering and at times offensive.
Each character behaved defensively to the others actions and words. This relationship is doomed. They seem to think sex will fix their problems.
I’m a twenty-six-year-old taking care of my forty-three-year-old-mother who needs to live with the choices she’s made, but a part of me feels responsible and even a bit guilty. This is a quote from Remy. While this statement had potential the story did not deliver the type of story I envisioned.
You’re working hard to get an education and do something with your life. You’ve overcome and beat the system. Shane's quote. Again great advice and a great accomplishment yet Remy's character is ladled with doubt and insecurity. Not to mention Remy lives her life for others.
“Were you thinking about sex?” Quote from Jenna. Yes, all the characters think about sex and infer it with offensive words. These characters are juvenile and inappropriate with the dialogue and references towards sex. When is it ever ok for a parent to state to your sons girlfriend that she should join him in the shower? Or when should you allow your sister to assume your girlfriend gave you a blowjob in the car in front of your parents house while your sister is holding her daughter?
These characters are ladled with jealousy and anger issues.
Remy is secretive and evasive with her past. Remy is layered deep with issues.
These two play a game of hot and cold. Jealousy is always at the forefront. These characters have too much baggage.
The story did not hit its mark for me. It is part of a series with this one ending on a cliffhanger. I'm not even going to entertain the idea of reading another book from this series.
