I was aware going in that this was a companion style novella based on minor characters of the full series. What I didn't realize was there was some light BDSM involved. However, that didn't deter me from reading.
The following is my personal opinion and thoughts about many aspects of this book and its author.
COVER: ✯✯✯ - Well I love the cover....I don't believe it fits perfect with the book or the story. This is a steamy book and the cover is just a little too sweet. I do however see why Miss Mullins used it and how it fits with the overall plot.
PLOT: ✯✯✯✯ - I was happy that the main characters from the series did not appear in this novella. (well, not till the epilogue). Being a companion to the series, I preferred to hear from the minor character and the new character. This was a solid start to a plot I see coming in future books. With that said, there was the preferred build up to the climax. (no pun intended). This wasn't a filler plot but an introduction and for that I appreciated a preview into what lies in the main series.
WRITING STYLE: ✯✯✯✯✯ - Miss Mullins doesn't disappoint with her writing style. I didn't find her words generic or overused. There was a beautiful blending of descriptive feelings to convey the scenery and the emotions.
CHARACTERS: ✯✯✯✯ - With this being a novella...there was little time to bring Spencer and Gina's characters to full development. But a solid foundation was definitely made for future books.
OVERALL FLOW: ✯✯✯✯✯ - This was an easy read. I didn't find myself bored and before I knew it....I had finished the book. I must admit I was a little sad it was over, but then I realized there were more books in this series I can read. :D
Gina is a single mom with a self-absorb childish ex. Well that's how I see him. Spencer is her brother's newest employee. They knew each other years earlier, but never had a relationship (friendship or otherwise) back then. Years change a person physically, mentally, emotionally and they have both grown up. Hence where the sparks start flying.
I appreciated this book, but truly wished it was longer. I know that companion books are suppose to be short, but I enjoyed this book so much that I didn't want it to end. I will be reading the series and hope the main characters there are as delightful as these two were.
Under no circumstances was I approached by the author to read or review this book. I offered without any agreement or promise for any compensation. I am voluntarily giving my opinion about this book. My only affiliation with the author is that I am a fan and want to support by reading and posting this review of my own free will.
Gina Damaso is a single mother who runs the Red Gate Inn. She is trying to move on with her life since splitting with her ex-boyfriend, Rafe.
When Spencer and Gina meet sparks fly but will Gina allow herself to get close to another man, especially one that may be in the same lifestyle as her brother?
This was a good book about love when you least expect it and taking chances.
I liked how Spencer was coming back home and learning about his family. There were so many parts about his hippie parents that had me laughing as they were so extreme.
I thought it was interesting how Gina said a few things that showed she knew about the lifestyle her brother was in but never knew for sure it Spencer was that way. Spencer and Gina definitely had chemistry but you didn't really know what was going to happen with them having sex.
This was a good quick read and I am looking forward to more books in the series.
