I thought this book was going to be much much deeper than it was. These people had horrific pasts. They live in a colorful town full of colorful people. There's some pretty serious topics here: drunk driving, incest, molestation... And they're glossed over. Basically he tells his story and she tells her story and it's all good except when it's not and when it's not it's not horrific. And it's quick to get the point of being healed too. I mean like real quick. Especially after a significant invasion of personal space. This book merely skims the surface. With characters mentioning their personal ways of being messed up and then curing each other through physical means. So you don't particularly even get to know the characters other than what they think about each other physically. I get it... he's hot.
The writing feels jerky. It was all about throttling to the next big scene which all just seem to drop in from the heavens somewhere. Like the very end that whole fiasco right out of left field. I figured it was either going to be that or that there would be no further mention of that whole initial situation in the story. But the story didn't lead either direction honestly. It just was like boom there it is. Just like that. The relationship was just like boom. The mother of his child... right out of nowhere. You can only have so many right out of nowhere's in a story before it's like seriously why am I reading this at all then.
The daughter. If I had ignored her age as stated in the book she appeared to be somewhere between 2 and 15 at any given moment. I get there are precocious kids. But again she was mostly just a plot device so was used when it suited the story. So her discussions were deep. Her behaviors not so much.
And the end. The end brought to heavy eye roll and sighed "bless her heart." I can't even go there.
The book is apparently a part of a series. Now part of the issue with that is Jason was painted to be almost disgusting and predatory in this book and not in that hot alpha way. It was in that gross I'm scared to leave my drink around this guy I hope he doesn't follow me home way. So the series ends here with me.
When it is a book that as you begin from page one, you can feel the story slowly weaving itself into the fabric of your soul...knowing that once you are done...this book will be a part of you no matter what...
Well, Pocketful of Sand did just that...
I seriously went through so much in this book...And no surprise since this is a M. Leighton novel. But, truly, this book eased it's way in to my heart. I laughed...I got excited...I had to fan myself from the HOT and STEAMY moments...and I cried...
Gah...I cried...more than one time I might add...and let me tell you...I can count how many books that have made me cry on one hand and this one hit me at least three times...Were they sad tears?? Joyful tears?? Sorry...not gonna say..But I will tell you..A book that I can connect with, that evokes such strong emotions from me, truly shows the brilliant talent that has been written in the pages of this book.
The beautiful love story that is laid out in front of us produces a strong connection to the intense well developed characters of Cole and Eden.
Right from the beginning you are pulled in to Eden's life and are ever curious as to why she is where she is at this moment. I adore Eden and not only is she trying to find her footing in this world, she is a wonderful single mother to the stunning little Emmy...
These two captured my heart with amazing scenes that once you find out more of the backstory; will leave you reeling...
But lets bring in Cole and discuss how much of an impact he brings on their lives...
He, who already has a past full of baggage, fights the attraction he has with Eden...yet with each moment they come in contact with each other, the electrifying chemistry of these two explodes off the pages...
BUT...I don't want to give too much...and if you think this story is an easy cut and dry HEA...well, guess what??
SURPRISE...OHHHH MY WORD....M. Leighton does something that I have not seen before and BAM...I am totally going crazy here...
Again..I can't tell more...Ahhhhhh!!!!!
You MUST READ THIS BOOK!!!!
