I’ll start off this review by saying that I don’t really like friends to lover stories. The whole I can’t tell him I love him because I might lose him gets old after a while. The beginning of this book followed that trope to the tee. Joe drove me crazy the whole first half of the book. Kade wasn’t much better to be honest, but since we just got Joe’s point of view he was the one that was annoying me. The secondary characters were what made the book for me. They were all wonderful.
This is Mary Calmes and although I am sure she is going somewhat for realism, I never found any of her books to be particularly realistic. There were some plot holes throughout, especially at the beginning. I just wish the book was a bit longer. It seemed like it was just getting to the good part and then it was over. Seeing where the story ended up, I would definitely read more about Joe and Kade if the author continued the series.
All in all, the book was okay. It wasn’t my favorite by any means, but I enjoyed the second half a lot. If the first half had been as good I would have rated it higher.
As a few other reviewers said, it was a poor imitation of the Marshalls series first book. And not any where near as engaging. It was so short on development as to almost read like an outline of a fully fleshed Mary Calmes story.
None of the characters were captivating except possibly Declan. The family members, we were told, loved one another but still were so self absorbed and business oriented, they let nearly three years pass and never reached out to a devastated Joe. Sure, the father, mother and two brothers each hired a private investigator to track down Joe...but they Never Contacted him!!! Three years!!! And the mother. I didn't care for her at all. Her personality with it's innocent cutesiness one moment then badass mama bear pronouncements the next just turned me off completely.
I'm disappointed. Mary Calmes is an excellent author who always grabs the reader and envelopes us in her character's lives to such an extent we don't want the book to end.
Just not with this book.
I starting reading it at 11 at night and could not put it down. (Not usually a problem but I had to be at work at 6 am) I loved the story, the dialogue, and the characters. I don’t feel the story was too similar to Miro and Ian. I guess it’s all about perception and interpretation.
What I do know is that her books continue to be an auto buy for me. When I see anthologies and she is a contributing author that becomes an auto buy - even if no other author is familiar to me.
I wish Mary a long and productive life. I have read all of her books and have many favorite characters - I just know she’s going to tell us their stories as soon as she has the time.
Kade has waited a long time to tell someone his feelings. As he meets his partners family, he cannot help but pour out how he has felt. With the cloud of danger around them - can they protect their charge and still find love?
This author is a must read. So I did what I always do, and I clicked purchase. Then I could not put the story down, did not want to make dinner, ring in the new year, nothing! I just wanted to keep reading this amazing story that just sucked me in. I turned every page eagerly and when it was over all I wanted was more. So is there.... more?
