It also bothered me a little that the author seems to think getting completely off of all pain medication is the only solution to chronic pain. Some people's chronic pain is so severe that they simply cannot endure it without pain medication. I agree that it is best not to take it if you don't absolutely need it, and addiction is terrible -- but giving pain medication up completely is simply not an option for some people. Doctors need to work with them to manage their pain without addiction.
There were many things going on in Finn's relationship with Rissa and the one thing I thought was odd is that he didn't realize she wouldn't be struggling for money if she was still with the rich man she left Finn for. His confusion is somewhat explained. I don't think it changed the overall story or made me like either character any less.
I found this to be a sweet love story about redemption and how small misunderstandings can lead to big changes. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series and hope I'll see Finn, Rissa, Tank and Emma in that one as well. I also recommend this author's Alexanders series.
By the way, I didn't get this book for free. I paid for it and think it was worth it!
There were holes that I felt weren't filled.
My biggest one was Andrew, the rich man that stole Rissa from Finn. We know nothing about him except that he abused Rissa.
Where did he come from? How did he lure her away? What was his profession? How did they live , and most importantly, what caused Rissa to finally leave. His character is under developed. We have nothing in his POV that shows what he's thinking. He was in her house once, called/texted a couple times, then came to her door. That's it. If we saw why Rissa left, this would have been a lot more satisfying for me.
I liked Finn and Rissa's characters. I think Finn caved a little too early for my taste, but he was still so much in love. He just couldn't fight it any longer.
Rissa paid a very steep price for leaving Finn. Once he was back she fell right back in. Totally understandable.
I would have liked to see this book close out all the characters.
Where do Finn and Rissa go next? Does Claire recover? What does Rissa do with her building, what happened up Daphne & Tara?
I don't think I'm pursuing this series. This story was ok, but not my idea of a really good book.
(1). I know pain medicine addiction is a real problem for many people, but I feel like the way the author handled the subject, it makes a judgment on people who legitimately suffer from chronic pain and need and properly take pain medication (as opposed to those who are abusing and/or addicted to it). It is a little frustrating that the only option the author seems to leave is to be rid of medication completely, and that those who suffer from serious pain always have that option. That is, sadly, a misconception and is not the case for many people who suffer.
(2). There wasn't as much of an explanation as to what happened in the characters' past (back stories) in between their first and most recent times together.
(3). Parts were just a little too cliche. While I love the happy endings, in both of these books, the recurring statements of "you're mine," "you belong to me," "I will protect you," "forever and always," plus an engagement ring are present. I'd have liked to see a little more originality.
It's a fun read, though, and some of the humor is great!

Rissa had hurt herself by leaving Finn behind, she'd more than paid for her mistakes and letting Finn back in now, was proving hard.
The hard working, trailer park childhood sweethearts still loved dearly but both needed to heal themselves before they could embrace a new found billionaire future together,
Rissa brings out the good and bad sides of Finn, but at the end of the day they are meant to be! Fab read I read it in 2 days, deffinetly one for everyone to read x
