This book will be much more meaningful if you have read the Alluring Indulgence series first, but you can definitely read on its own as well so don't miss out! Deserves a reread for sure!
Curtis and Lorrie's story was amazing, sexy, emotional,and touching. Their love is one that lasts a lifetime. From the first day Lorrie was sent to talk to Curtis at the age of 14, to the big family dinner at the end, you can see their love was real. The challenges they face as a young married couple, and the truths they face as a family touches you to the bone.
Although I recommend trading the AI Series, so you can get a solid foundation of the Walker family, this book can be read alone. This us a story for the ages. Curtis and Lorrie's love is a love that stands the test of time.
The story of Curtis and Lorrie is so sweet and heartwarming and heart-breaking. I must admit, I never understood how they were married for so long before having kids. I’m a timeline weirdo and it always makes me pause when their length of marriage or ages came up and I think of Travis’ age. Not that it’s a problem to wait to have kids. It’s just Lorrie seems like the type who was born to be a mother so I was flummoxed as to why they’d wait so long to start their family. (So why didn’t I want to read this book?)
I enjoyed the tidbits of Lorrie’s diary that were scattered throughout the story while also helping to move the narrative ahead. Let’s face it, no matter how steamy and loving a couple is we don’t want to read thousands of pages of their day to day life on the ranch. Using important entries from Lorrie’s diary was a genius way to keep things moving without the reader feeling something was left out. Those entries also helped to show the growth Lorrie went through as the years went by. I loved watching her bloom from an infatuated, inexperienced, love-struck teenager to a mature, caring, sexual, love-struck woman. And honestly, knowing her thoughts and feeling when it came to sex helped me to forgive Curtis a bit.
Yep, Curtis pissed me off. But just like Lorrie, I understand why he did what he did. I don’t have to like it though! He handled things badly and even a bit immaturely. Although he was trying to protect Lorrie (and I truly believe that’s what he was doing on a conscious level), what he did was very selfish. On an unconscious level he was protecting himself more than anything else. Thankfully it all worked out in the end and may have actually prepared Lorrie to be tough enough to raise 7 boys.
The present day part of the story dragged a bit for me. Yet I can’t tell you where the author could have cut anything or even done anything differently. There was a story to be told and certain elements needed to be in place for the reader to truly understand how this felt for the family…so maybe the pacing was on purpose even.
I’m so glad I’m stickler for my own made up rules or I probably wouldn’t have picked this book up, even though I love Nicole Edwards. So if you have been dragging your feet like I was about reading Curtis please stop procrastinating. Trust me, you will love it.
