This book absolutely blew me away! I needed a really good romance read. One with sweetness, fire, some fight, and some serious love. I think this book had all those and a good dose of them all too. I appreciated the author's writing and her diving into a deep love story that is anything but traditional. What is traditional love, anyway?
This book has an incredible cast of characters, male, female, adults and kids. They are all great and all play such an integral part of the story. I really don't think you'd get the full story without them. Some are bitter, some are loving, and some are full of piss and vinegar. Either way, they love hard and are fierce protectors. They are a great bunch of characters to read about, from one story to the next.
If you've followed my reviews at all, you know that it is a really big pet peeve of mine when a story is labeled to be part of a series but is mainly labeled a stand alone, but in reality, the story doesn't fit into that stand alone classification. Well, this book falls into the idea it's part of a series but is a stand alone. Oh my heavens did this author knock this one out of the park. The first two stories were not necessary to understand this story or to dive right in. They truly are stand alone books. Now, I feel I must note that you're going to want to read them all. I haven't read the first two, but if they are anything like book 3, or anything like book 4 sounds to be like, you'll want to read them. I feel like it really was necessary to give credit where credit was due regarding the way that the author chose to write the story.
Details and descriptions were perfect. In fact, after I finished the story, I sent my husband a text message and told him he needed to take me to Hawaii without our kids. The descriptions are just absolutely beautiful. They make you feel like you're sitting in the sand watching the waves. They really provided me some comfort.
This is a pretty emotional book. The characters are flawed to the core, they aren't perfect, they have skeletons, and they have worked to be where they are. They have broken relationships and families. I think they are just like me and you. There is no such thing as a "perfect by the book family" but there is such a thing as your own perfect loving family. What makes something perfect to you might not be perfect to me. This alone makes this story worth reading. It's anything but cookie cutter but is absolutely beautiful.
I hope I've made you want to read this story. It's such a great read and has such astounding characters. I definitely applaud the author for the work she put into this story. Absolutely marvelous job!
