Also there as no chemistry between Corrine and Wes. There was so much potential for the love making scenes to be passionate because of the forbidden element but it never happened. The fact that it took so long for them to be together romantically played a part in it. There was only one smex scene and it did not happen until 94 percent of the percen story was finished On top of it the scene was medicore. If the love making scene is going to be delayed until the end of the story then at least make it worth the wait. Unfortunately that was not the case here.
Legacy deals with loss and how losing someone close affects the one who is left behind. There are many stages to grieving and main character Corinne goes through them. But when her family begins to notice the passage of time and how she's not returning to some semblance of her old life, they become worried. Then there's Wes, best friend of her boyfriend Michael, who knows Corinne doesn't like him, but unbeknownst to her, he promised his bud to take care of her. But how can he keep a death bed promise to his closest friend if the young woman won't let him near? Legacy tackles Corinne's depression gently and realistically. The oversleeping, the loss of doing anything fun, no appetite, lethargy, the dependence upon medicine to feel numb, and more. Corinne is merely existing.
Told from both points-of-view of Corinne and Wes, this is also a story of hope, of determination, and of acceptance. Losing someone is always terrible, but one must be able to accept another love if the opportunity arises. Corinne's growing acceptance and fondness for Wes scares her in many ways. Is she betraying Michael? Is there a guarantee she won't lose him? Can her heart handle another love? Her inner battle is poignant and I felt for her. I was very surprised by Wes and his character development. The tough looking personal body trainer dedicated to health and fitness became my favorite character in this story. He thought he didn't deserve someone like Corinne, someone with such talent, class, and beauty. Corinne on the other hand had to drop her preconceived opinions about Wes and get to know the real man underneath the muscle tees.
This is such a refreshing love story. I never felt down or upset, there was always this constant hum of hope throughout. And the romance was believable all the way. Wes wants to help after his mistake and Corinne realizes she does need assistance. As they learn to live with each other, Wes sees she needs to begin to embrace living and shows her how. There were so many scenes I enjoyed watching these two connect, accept, and finally realize that being together just may be what their beloved friend intended all along. I recommend this contemporary romance to anyone who enjoys poignant and hopeful love stories.
Side note: This didn't affect my rating, but I was annoyed by the repeated possessive errors (yes, I'm one of "those people"). Some characters had the last name Rouch, the plural of which is Rouches (used correctly in the book). Well, when saying that one is going to that family's house, you start with the plural form since a family is more than one person. I was taught that anything that ends in an -s just requires an apostrophe in possessive form. Thus, the author/editor should've used "Rouches' house" and "Wes' bike" rather than "Rouch's" and "Wes's." Not a big deal, just annoying to me, and I see this type of thing in a lot of books nowadays.
