So love the book overall and can’t wait to read the next. I had a few growls here and there but overall I really really enjoyed. The princess bride quotes that were switched as to who said life is pain princess was totally awesome.
What had me growl: Lachlan at the end. He was a wee bit green eyed and just frustrating. Peter Max’s brother he was selfish and irritating at times. What he did to help contribute to Max’s downfall and his attitude when he first came into the picture was frustrating. I liked how he was there for his brother at the end and wanted to make sure Nicci didn’t hurt him again. Nicola frustrated me. She was all her broke my heart I can’t be with him yet she led him on. And she never thought about what it was like for Max when they broke up. She thought he didn’t care. She didn’t see the fallout and his downward spiral and fight to become who he is now and change only what she felt and believed. She thinks of herself more than Max and that frustrated me.
I loved the setting of this with the play being a Midsummer Nights dream. To me this was apropos for the story going on. they were all in lust of some form or another. Max and Nicci were fighting their feelings and Nicci was mostly living with the past. Max was but in a different way his was not fear of his heart breaking but fear of what the break would do to him. the first one cost him alot and has him with a brother feeling guilty.
Seeing the change in Max from what he and others tell us he once was and how he is able to be with others in the theatre and help them with their parts and visualizing what needs to help them understand the character and emotion needed was amazing. For me yes at times max was frustrating with his fear of his feelings for Nicci but he faced them head on and didn’t try to deny them. he was a great character. Kind and gentle when needed, hard working and hard nosed when necessary. He listened when warranted, helped with guidance when necessary and supportive. He was more even keeled and had a quiet strength for others to draw from. His perspective on things was contemplative and wasn’t one that left you thinking he was arrogant but that he was thoughtful and introspective.
The atmosphere the story was in was contemplative at times, fun and light hearted other times but charged and vibrant as well. We get some peaceful intimate moments like Max helping Nicci with Tatiana’s jealousy speech. Watching them talk about their feelings was serious and heartfelt as was Peter’s speech to Nicci towards the end. We see that this group of actors are family for each other and respect each other and support one another. The story is emotion and character driven. The supporting cast is one that can polarize at times such as Judie and her hot cold ways but attitude that has you growl, Lachlan who you begin by loving and seeing as fun loving but at the end you grr him as well. One way or another an emotion is pulled from you as you watch Max and Nicci figure out their feelings, working together and learn to let go of the past. I loved at the end how Max no matter what learned that he would be able to be okay no matter what the consequences and was glad he put himself out there. The story is delightful and endearing with some fun moments, sweet moments and some sexy times as well as we fall in love with Max and Nicci and the story of their new chance on love with one another.
