I finished reading this yesterday and I'm still in a happy love stupor trying to pull myself together. As the blurb mentions Delivering Dante can technically be read as a standalone but you're going to miss out on so much if you don't read the rest first. For those of you who have prepare for all kinds of squees and swooning a bit after the halfway mark!
Did I fall in love? Head over heals
Would I re-read? Absolutely! over and over and then when the audio comes out I'll be listening over and over.
Were there moments- sad, funny, sweet, fantasy fueling- that I replay? I managed to stop daydreaming long enough to write this but just barely :)
Was it worth the money? I've received each book as an arc, and I've bought each book anyway. This book is no exception.
Without giving away too many spoilers, Lucy yet again entertains us with the Marian family. We learn about the special connection between Dante and Griff and it is both heartwarming as well as heartbreaking. There are so many touching moments in the story that one moment you find yourself tearing up and the next laughing.
Aunt Tilly is yet again up to her same old tricks and you cannot help but absolutely love her. The trouble she manages to get into just makes you laugh and shake your head and think only aunt Tilly. After her escapades in delivering Dante, I am very anxious to see more of her and what is going on with her and a certain someone. It will be interesting to read about that more.
AJ and Dante do not have an easy HEA. AJ gets frustrated and Dante is confused and it makes for an interesting and entertaining story. It would have been nice to see more of what happened to Dante’s father and hopefully he gets what’s coming to him. He definitely could use a taste of his own religion.
Lucy once again has hit it out of the ballpark with another Made Marian story. I love the whole T-shirt and family reunion idea and it always is a funny and sweet moment in the book.
I hope that we get to see Nico's story at some point. Even though he isn't exactly a "Marian" he is still very much a part of the family and the storyline.
If you have not yet read any of the books in the Made Marian series, I highly recommend them. They are definitely worthy of one clicking. You can read them all out of order, they are all standalones, but why would you? Start with Borrowing Blue and get hooked and binge read the whole series. You won't regret it.
All of the characters in the book are well fleshed out. The secondary characters are well placed and give the work additional depth. The bad guys are suitably bad, and the good guys are good enough to be moral and bad enough to be interesting.
The author weaves the past and present together in such a way as to make you feel that you were there experiencing it first hand.
Built into complete and complex characters, Dante and AJ have strength, albeit hidden in some cases, and a will to overcome whatever is thrown their way. Their outlook is hopeful, due, in large part, to their current families' acceptance and support. The loving family dynamics are beautiful and the playfulness a nice break from otherwise heavy subject matter. I laughed, I cried. I loved it.
Dante was rescued 8 years ago from an abusive father who was also the small town preacher and had everyone “working” for him. Dante was subjected to conversion therapy, leaving him physically and emotionally abused. He was rescued by his Angel.
From the moment Dante spots AJ in a crowd, he is drawn to him. AJ centers him. Together they develop a relationship that, despite some rockiness that stems from their past, has you cheering them on. I experienced so many emotions reading Dante’s story but I was predominantly cheering Dante on as he learned to overcome his past. In the end, his strength of character shines through.
