Hunter, his wife, Ethan, Sarah and her daughter have become a little family during the last two years after Jake's death. This network has allowed Sarah to move on in her life. At least that's what she thinks. However, Ethan's feeling towards her have gradually changed and slowly slowly Sarah realizes that the tension between her and Ethan must mean something. Is she willing to really move on with her life and how will Hunter adopt to the news?
I know that my summary is more than sketchy but I can't really go into more details without giving too much away.
This book is a classical suspense romance, where the suspense part was clearly subordinate and less elaborate compared to the romance part. According to my opinion each of both strings of the plot had one distinct disadvantage. More detailed, I believe that the biggest disadvantage of the suspense part was definitely the missing development of the villain's character and motivation behind his actions. Yes, there were some minor implications but they should have been more elaborate to offer further depth to the book.
The romance part was clearly predominant and better developed. The only disadvantage was the multiple back and forth between the two main characters and how each of them considered their relationship and common future. However, exactly this back and forth was so well explained and conveyed that Ethan's and Sarah's indecisions were understandable and comprehensible.
The author crafted and maintained throughout the book an emotional atmosphere that I have come rarely across in any kind of literature. She managed to absorb me completely in the ambience and offered me many hours of outstanding reading pleasure!!
The characters are memorable in this book from the protagonists to all the side characters. The protagonists, Sarah and Ethan have so much history between. Jake's death and the subsequent years were hard on them both. But they emerge happier out of the situation. Sarah is emotional while Ethan tends to shy away from complications. Sarah battles her guilt and her broken heart bravely and that endeared her to me.
I preferred Sarah to Ethan because of his romantical unavailability in the majority of the book. I loved meeting the people in Ethan's office. They are all one big family and that feeling of oneness permeated all the interactions among them. Kylee is super cute in her scenes with Ethan and it is one aspect of Ethan which I loved about him. For all his faults, he really loves Kylee like his own daughter.
I get that both had unique situations so they were feeling guilty and that lead to the block in their romance. But I felt it was overly drawn it. They could have resolved it sooner but I feel on the other hand that without that disruption between them, the stalker situation would not have played out beautifully. The stalker is introduced in the beginning itself. The author has perfectly plotted the stalker's part with small touches of intrigue. I didn't see the way the stalker would play out the climax. It was done with a delicate touch.
I went through all the emotions in this tale. It had me crying, laughing and feeling fear at all right places. The author does know how to hook her readers and get them to follow the series. I for one am going to check out the other books too!
All in all, it was a very good read and I would recommend it to contemporary romance lovers without hesitation. I have taken off 0.5 star because of the prolonged stubbornness of Ethan!
My rating : 4.5/5
I really liked this story (although not as much as Morgan and Hunter's) and understand that there needs to be some emotional angst, otherwise it's just gooey and uninteresting. I have to say though that Ethan's turmoil over his feelings for Sarah, committing to a relationship, and then his calculated decision to not communicate with her for a period of time made him seem a little immature. Sarah does not just forgive and forget - she does make him wait and work for it. Of course all of this is happening while Sarah is the focus of a murderous stalker.
STOP READING NOW IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW.
Okay, this is my biggest pet peeve with this book. Why must Sarah get pregnant? I could see it coming so personally, I wasn't that surprised. But really? They couldn't find love and romance without being somewhat forced into it by an unplanned pregnancy? She's a widow with a 2 year old. Presumably hasn't been intimate with anyone since before her husband deployed (almost 3 years?), and she has unprotected sex? Please. The pregnancy is what pushed Ethan finally to make the commitment - or realize he wanted to make one. Wish the story allowed them to fall in love with the possibility of continuing to build a family without leaving you to wonder if maybe 'but for' the pregnancy, the relationship may not have come to fruition.
