Emma Jane had left Knox at the altar eight years before when she overheard something, chose not to ask for an explanation, and just left town altogether. Fate brings Becket into her life. He becomes her best friend, helps her find a new job and create a new life for herself. Now it is 8 Years later, and Knox is back into her life in the form of her new boss. He is still confused and hurt over her leaving him like that, never having the chance to get closure on the whole thing. They end up working on building a new relationship up until some office drama happens, which, in turn, ends up opening old wounds and the truth of the past finally comes to light. They do get their happy ending, which was nice. I do think I wanted just a little more at the end, I was feeling a little cheated out of finally seeing them happy with the life they had always planned.
Next up is Becket's story, and I'd definitely read that. I'd also want to read his friends' story as well. His interaction with them was just too adorable.
I have come to love RC Boldt's words over the last year or so. She has made me laugh and swoon like it is no one's business. This book is just another notch in that belt. I couldn't put this book down.
There is always something about angst and steam that go hand in hand. If they are delivered right, they can be explosive. That is just what this story is. The reconnecting of these two characters is completely explosive is all the right ways.
Emma and Knox are on my list of favorite fictional characters. This book is one of my favorite books of the year. This is definitely you shouldn't pass up. If you haven't purchased this book, I would highly advise it. A word of advice though... Have a fan handy to cool yourself off with while reading, and be prepared to need a cold shower or two before you finish this book!
I didn't connect to the characters or the story. Parts of it were confusing, like the unresolved issue of Becket. I get that he's going to have his own story, but his presence in this one was too strong. It bordered on 'triangle' territory. And for anyone reading this as a standalone, there are random crossovers from other stories that don't make sense unless you've read those other stories.
In addition, details that should have bern included were skimmed over, like EJ's first encounter with her parents in 8 years. Given the influence her father had on EJ's actions in the prologue, not including any interaction at all when she went to his birthday party was a bit odd, in my opinion.
It wasn't convincing how EJ and Knox fell into bed with all the unresolved bad feelings between them. I've said this before and I will again, people don't behave that way. Yeah, I get it that reading is an escape and people want the fantasy and blahblahblah. I like to be able to relate to the characters and their actions and I could do neither with this story.
I dislike dual POV, and that is no secret. I can count on one hand the writers I've encountered in recent years that do it properly. They are rare. This writer badly needs to work on her male voice.
A few examples of hero Knox's inner dialogue -
"My voice was a predatory growl."
People don't notice how they speak or sound when they are talking. Someone else might describe their tone that way, but they their self would not.
"I gazed into her cerulean eyes." Yeah, no.
"She kissed that spot at the base of my throat, and I suddenly went weak in the knees." Ok. Girly much?
Men do not think like this! They don't think - or speak - in emotional, flowery, descriptive prose. Nothing takes me out of a story quicker than a male character with the voice of a female.
Now, about the gratuitous smut.
I finished the book in about 3 hours, because I skimmed several long, repetitive sex scenes. Because I read books for STORIES and not for lessons in PORN. Honestly, it's really beyond tiresome that it's become almost impossible to avoid that level of explicit content. If anyone speaks against it, they are labeled a prude, which in my case is patently false. I simply don't need that level or amount of description, let alone have it repeated several times over in a story. Because, adult.
These days, I find the majority of scenes dedicated to intimacy to be juvenile and about as sexy as a scene depicting a characters toilet business.
I was drawn in by the story summary, but overall was underwhelmed. I love second-chance stories and while I'm aware they all follow the same general outline, there are better examples than this out there. The trick to writing a story that uses a particular trope is to make it unique so it stands out. For instance, compelling characters can make even the most recycled plot idea fresh. Not the case here. The book isn't bad, but neither is it good and will be quickly forgotten.
Just my opinion, of course.
