Now, Lydia's dad's company is in shambles and has to turn to Brogan for help. The tables have turned. Lydia, who was pampered, selfish and popular, is now working hard to stay afloat, making whatever sacrifices necessary to maintain her job. I wasn't sure that I would like Lydia, but as it turns out, she's a great heroine. As a young adult, she makes some immature choices despite her true intent, and as a grown woman, she knows how to take accountability for her actions and to be humble when necessary. At the same time, she holds her head up high.
As for Brogan, he's got an Irish accent and I love heroes with accents. He's good with numbers and he is very hardworking. He's also got a lot of pride and gets a bit tangled by his own emotions because of the sensory overload. I could see why Brogan needed payback and how it seemed like a satisfying plan to bring his enemies to ruin. That sort of fire fueled him through the darkest of times to become what he is today. But Brogan is not heartless, he's actually loyal, caring and protective, and filled with regrets.
Neither Brogan nor Lydia were without fault, but I found myself very attached to both of them regardless of past wrongs. They both had a compassionate heart at the core and they brought out so much in one another, no matter what the circumstances were. I loved how the core themes of this story included second chances, forgiveness and friendship. Both Brogan and Lydia are different people in the present than they were in the past, but that didn't necessarily change the dynamics between them as far as recognizing the depth of each other's hearts. There's a good bit of Irish slangs and Gaelic sayings, which endeared me further to both Brogan and his best friend Fionn.
There's a balanced combination of drama, angst and the fine line between love and hate. I loved all of it. The writing is beautiful and the emotions are palpable. I felt the heartbreak and the sorrow and the pain of endured hardships. I also felt the love, the connection and the sacrifices. Another Mia masterpiece.
Brogan was delicious. I do so love a broody hero with a good heart. He had always had the entire weight of his family on his shoulder, and over the years he had built up an incredible amount of anger and resentment toward Lydia and her family. During his inner monologues I could see how much he truly cared, despite what it may have appeared like on the outside. Brogan certainly had a few moments when I wanted to smack him in the back of the head, but overall I was definitely rooting for him and Lydia. I adored the slow burn of their romance. There were certainly some steamy scenes between them once they gave in to each other.
One thing I liked about both Brogan and Lydia was their love and dedication to their siblings. Granted one sibling was much more deserving than the other, but it still spoke volumes about their character. Hearing what Brogan had to do for his sister absolutely broke my heart. His scene with one of the boys he was trying to help and the work he did proved what a caring man he was. Other people mattered to him. The story as a whole was lighter than some of Mia's other books, but the heart and romance I love about her work was still quite prevalent. Brogan and Lydia's story was a wonderful journey about redemption, forgiveness, love, and second chances that I would highly recommend.
If the author could've focused on the love, less Wuthering Heights revenge storyline, maybe I would've liked it more. Ramsey's rags to riches storyline was not believable and too cliche'd- 20 something becomes zillionaire in a couple of years; all the while being good looking, banging lots of women ,,etc. I think this story has played itself out.
This is why Archers Voice and Kyland were so good. NO zillionaires. Lydia was okay, a little boring and somewhat whiny and judgemental . And of course she was on a sexual sabbatical after her initial encounter with Ramsay. Also, unbelievable as well.
I didn't hate this book as I did Midnight Lily, and I didn't love it either. The author is a gifted writer, but her great written romances are about regular people with unique circumstances. I will keep reading Ms Sheridan's books. I only hope she abandons the zillionaire genre.
