Also, to have lovable Max end up with such a head case as Nix was rather a disappointment. He deserves better. She was a lot more likable until this book.
Somewhat of a Spoiler Alert!
One aspect of the ending is so stupid and preposterous, it's just awful. The author makes a huge mistake and then just wouldn't let it be. I don't want to be gross and explain the situation, but let's just say the extent to which she wants the reader to suspend reality where a dead body is concerned is SO STUPID, it's an insult to your intelligence. Complete strangers recognized a person after the body had been buried for 6 years? I don't think so. That just completely ruined the book for me. The author can do a lot better than this.
I have loved the character of Dr. Phoenix Reid from the minute she was introduced to us in the prior New Hope books. Her character, while quiet, always made me chuckle with her spunk and funny one-liners throughout the other books. I won’t lie, the skeletons in her closet are down right f**king scary! Her past freaked me out through the entire book, but her struggle and the way she handled it was fabulously written by Ms. Ryan! Although there were plenty of times in this story where I kinda wanted to jump in and shake some sense into her – I mean c’mon beautiful, swoon worthy Max Hallowell is knocking on your door and you turn him away?!
“I’m not looking to rescue anyone, he says softly. But if you’re the one who needs saving, I’m happy to invest in a stallion and learn how to ride.”
Max Hallowell is the prince we watch in fairytales as little girls and the Knight in Shining Armor we pray for as we get older. His character has certainly matured since we first met him and if possible I think he got a little sweeter! I saw him in a whole new light in this book though I have to say he became much more sexier and damn, who knew he had the ability to talk so dirty…. can we say melt your panties HOTT?! ☺
“I’ve fantasized about this since the first time, he whispers, his voice husky against my ear. I’ve thought about how you’d look under the spray, imagined these f**king perfect legs wrapped around me as I f**ked you.Read more ›
After everything that happened with Hanna, Max is finally ready to move on with his life and 'date' again. One night of passion with the hot Doc was enough for him to realize that he wanted more with her, but unfortunately, Nix is running scared. She avoids relationships because she has been badly hurt in the past, which she never talks about with anyone in New Hope.
Does Max just have a savior complex or do his feelings for Nix go deeper? Can Nix let go of her past and move on with one of the good guys? There are a lot of twists and turns in this book that kept me on the edge of my seat for the majority of the book, but that's what makes Lexi's writing so AMAZING. She draws you in and doesn't let go of you until you read that last page. I would definitely recommend this new series to anyone that has ever read any of her New Hope books. You will NOT be disappointed!
**I was lucky enough to win a Complimentary Copy of the book, provided by the Author for an honest review AND I bought it!**
And I equally liked Dr. Phoenix (Nix) Reid. She's sweet and kind with so much mystery about her. She's unassuming and has a low regard of herself. She's not glamorous or flamboyant or flashy. She's a little bit naive' and insecure around men. She's serious and very private.
This isn't an original story. It's been told many times. Two people trying to overcome their damage to find their HEA. There's suspense and mystery and entertaining comic relief with all the friends throughout this series. My biggest gripe is not knowing most of the characters' ages..(Max, Will, Sam, Nate, Krystal, Maggie, Cally, Meredith). I didn't like how often Nix waffles between her dilemma. She doesn't want anyone to know of her past history for fear of losing or alienating her friends...or worse, having them pity her. But it quickly got old. I didn't like how quickly Nix's sister (Amy) adapts to a new life outside a cult...one she was raised from infancy. She didn't need to go to therapy or anything to help her adjust. She's talking about getting a job (which she's never held) and finding an apartment. Gave me whiplash how quickly she turns around, especially with how dogmatic she preached her religion.Read more ›
