I've loved this group of guys that have been featured in this trilogy. Although they all have their horrible mental scars over what they've been through, West has always seemed the most tragic. It was his girlfriend who was raped and then she committed suicide. He's also had to fight a horrible drug addiction (which just adds to his guilt over what happened to her because he was high the night she died.)
Now West has a rule for women in his life. For two months a year, he can have a lover...one single lover and then he goes back to a life of celibacy the other 10 months of the year. West is VERY controlled and structured about every aspect of his life. It's all part of how he's stayed sober. He has a schedule he sticks to...every single day. Nothing is allowed to intrude on that one fact of his life.
Jessie Kay is pretty much the opposite of West in every way. She's the messy, party girl who has spent her life sleeping with just about anyone trying to find a connection. In fact, she's slept with both of West's best friends, which is a serious sticking point for him. But Jessie Kay may be bright and happy and sunshiny on the outside, but she's hiding her own hurts. She truly doesn't think she's worthy of love. Something that is just enforced over and over by West's rejection of her. Because, yes, West wants her desperately. He just won't allow himself to indulge. It's his penance. His price to pay whether anyone else understands his reasoning or not.
I loved how opposite these two characters are. Jessie Kay can make anyone feel better and smile, even West...and that's not something that most people can do. He's so serious, and she's well aware of his hangups with his schedule and such so she makes it her goal in life to show him that life doesn't have to be so rigid. And she's not doing it to mess with him. Jessie Kay has one of the biggest hearts around. She truly wants him to be happy and knows that won't happen with the way he's living his life right now.
A great book and a great romance. Now, I know the three friends were the basis for this series, but I'm really hoping that this isn't the end. I'm thinking Jessie Kay's friend, Daniel, really needs a story, too. *crossing my fingers*
Note: (And I also pointed this out on the other two books in the series which I also listened to on audio) Overall, I really enjoy this narrator, but she doesn't have many differences between her men's voices. It's okay though because of Gena Showalter's writing...she's always good about identifying who is speaking when the guys are all together.
5 stars all the way.
