Storyline: This is Emerson and Luke's story. They met when Luke moved down the street when he was 6 and she was 4 and they became best friends. After Emmy graduated high school, Luke drops the bomb that he has enlisted to be a marine. Emmy is upset, but understands since she is off to college and he has a dysfunctional family (abusive father that took off when he was 16 and an alcoholic mother) that he would have to stay with. Their last night together things take a turn and Luke takes Emmy's virginity. He makes a huge mistake and leaves to never be heard from again (by anyone) for 8 years. When Luke returns to his hometown he doesn't receive the best welcoming. His group of friends, the rest of the town, and Emmy all are not please to see him and he realizes that he has a lot of work to do to win them back. After some hard work, Luke gets through and eventually learns about the struggles that Emmy faced when he was off the radar...but the couple work through it and find their HFN.
POV: This was alternating between Emmy and Luke's POV, but it was mostly in Emmy's. It also alternated between past and present.
Overall Pace of Story: Good. No slow points and the love was there from the start of the story, so there was no instalove going on.
H rating: 2 stars. Luke. He messed up bad. I understand that he was scared and was trying to protect Emmy, but he was wrong. The things he did are things you just don't do to someone you love...in my mind they are kinda unforgivable. I did appreciate how he committed to winning everyone back.
h rating: 3 stars. Emerson/Emmy. She was ok. I feel like especially at the end, she forgave him so abruptly that it was kind of confusing...but that might be because I felt that he had dug himself too deep in a hole and should not be able to get out.
Angst level: Moderate. No tissues used by me, but I see where someone might get emotional at times.
Heat level: Low. There are some sexy times, but it is minimal.
Closure: This was a HFN ending because the couple only talk about what they want out of the relationship, but do not have any commitments made
These books were laugh out loud hilarious, fast paced, pulled at your heart strings, and full of hot headed woman and the men who love them. I loved how each storyline was unpredictable and had little twist that would pop up and catch you off guard. There were moments that made you laugh, cry, scream at the characters stubbornness, and let out that look ohh when something happened you weren’t expecting.
This series had amazing character and storyline development that can sometimes be lacking in books these days. Whether it was the main character or a secondary one they always held your full attention without distracting from the storyline itself.
I want to give a little shout out to Worth the Wait, the absolute standout of this series for me. I loved every second of this book. Kenzie and Brett had caught my eye in previous books and I couldn’t wait for their stories, I was beyond thrilled when the book was about them together, I may have let out a little squeal. I ADORE the way Jessica Prince writes not only children but, how the adults interact with them. They aren’t throwaway characters to give the story a little extra depth or add a complication. They are a huge part of the story from start to finish and just add so much to the storyline.
With these gorgeous new covers and updated stories even if you’ve read these books before they need to be read again!
