A note on the author.
I'm not a "highlighter" (at least not on purpose) but I highlighted one phrase in this book - "mainsplainy d*@k". I had to highlight that little nugget of Kate Canterbary genius so I could share it with firends. I'm sure you want to know context- I would - so, read the book. You won't be sorry. As it has become easier for people to put books out to the world, it has become a lot easier for people to put garbage out there. I love to read, and I want people to follow their dreams and be creative but it is a lot harder to sort through to find the diamonds in the book world these days. This is not an author you want to let pass by your ereader. Kate's has a way with her words - she weaves a story that has an interesting plot, characters that you want to know and humor (laugh out loud /disrupt the dog's naps humor)- then she ties it together with a little sexy bow.
On to Shannon, the real purpose of this review.
I love a strong woman but a lot of times, I dislike strong female characters in books because they are just too abrasive, in your face and often fake. Not Shannon, I really grew to love and admire her. She carries the weigh of the world on her shoulders, has an intense family and puts everyone else first. What woman out there can't relate to that? You learn a lot about her character in the previous books and in the beginning of this one. You can actually understand why she acts the way she does. I didn't agree with a lot of Shannon's choices in the book, but that made me love it more. It forced me to really step outside of my head and enter Shannon's. Her insecurity and confidence battle in the the most delicious way - she's so real!
Briefly - Will - You'll love him. He's that hot, persistent, sexy SEAL. He's why people believe in soulmates. Honestly, there's not much to say about him, except, where is the real life version of him?
Bottom line - read it. Read the series, read the book and then wait patiently for book 5. That's where I'm at.
I FREAKING LOVE THIS BOOK
Seriously, it’s going to go down for me as one of my all time favorites and I cannot believe I hadn’t even heard of it before TikTok. I was seriously missing out. I devoured it. And now I’m going to have to read every other Kate Canterbary book and my husband is going to wonder if I stumbled into my reading nook and died because I’m not coming up for air.
Will is book boyfriend GOALS! A man who insults your first orgasm because he wants more? Yes please! He had a few faults, but he was basically perfect in every dang way. He made all of his choices for her. It was…. I love him.
Shannon….I didn’t love her as much as I could’ve, but that’s because it’s hard for me to see a strong woman allow herself to be unappreciated by the people she cares about. Not Will - he was freaking amazing. But she was truly a mother to all her dang siblings and it was difficult to read at times. I get it. It was brilliantly written, I could understand and empathize with every thought in her head. It’s just hard to reconcile with a woman who is so freaking strong never really standing up for herself with the people she loves. Family dynamics are a bitch though. So, it’s not like it’s unrealistic. And I like how it was handled.
Their sparks…whew…I still feel singed from that first experience. 5 chili pepper moments out the wazoo.
I’m usually not a fan of stories that feature flashbacks…if I’m honest, I don’t think this one really needed one. But basically you get a chapter in the now and then we flashback to 15 months earlier and it just continues til we get back to now. So there aren’t a lot of flashbacks.
I will say that having read this first I have absolutely no desire to read Sam and Teil’s story. I’m not really sure I will. Because that was some BS that I don’t think I’m emotionally capable of hanging with. But I’m super glad I read this first because I’m a firm believer in reading the book you’re most excited about when you read a new author. And this will definitely not be my last Kate Canterbary. This freaking queen! Love it!
Read it. Seriously, just read it. All of you. Everyone. Enjoy!

I would, and do, advise anyone who enjoys well crafted stories and characters to read this authors work. She is outstanding and now an automatic buy for me.
As I've already said in the previous book review Kate has made it onto my author watch list. Shall be excitedly waiting once again for the next instalment and anything else Kate writes.
(Do you get the feeling that just maybe I LOVE THE WALSHES?????)
Such amazing characters both shannon and will are strong, confident, stuborn alphas who are constantly in the middle of a power struggle. they are absolutely perfect for each other. shannon needs will even if it takes her a while to realise it and its so nice to see someone taking care of her for a change even if she resists. Will is the kind of man every woman fantasizes about.
this is an emotional rollercoaster that leaves you hanging on right till the end, I dont think i have ever read a book quicker than i did this as i could not put it down.
