Things that didn't work...
I prefer first person writing. I've come to be okay with some third person writing. But the style of this books third person writing just didn't work for me. It had that omnipresent thing going. In everyone's head and jumping around a lot. It made me dizzy. I spent way too much time trying to keep it straight who's head I was in at any given moment. I don't enjoy books that have me thinking so much that I'm not just sailing through the story.
Then there was the feeling of things taking forever to happen. Keelie has a secret past. And we don't get the last piece until the very end. It's woven through the story, revealed a piece at a time. While that might seem interesting and dramatic to some, it just annoyed me. By the time I knew the whole story, I was like meh about her pain. I'm pretty sure that wasn't what was supposed to happen. The story just dragged too much.
And speaking of Keelie. I didn't like her. She's tough and there's a reason she is. But she can be down right mean too. She pushed Zane away so much, I'm not sure what kept him coming back.
There's a couple of things that weren't tied up in the story. I'm sure it's setting the stage for the next book but one thing in particular seemed oddly dangling. I don't like that.
Things that did work...
Zane. Love him. He's this guy that a lot of people misunderstand. They think one thing about him when they see the glasses wearing photographer but really he's this super hot guy that has all the right words and moves. I loved that he wore glasses and was practically blind without them.Read more ›
So part of what I liked so much about this book was Keelie. When the book starts Keelie is at a wedding of the guy she has liked for a long time, so clearly that whole thing did not work out. It does seem a bit awkward that she is at the at Zach's wedding after she kissed him, but on the plus side it seems like the two of them have been able to put the whole kissing thing behind them, especially since Keelie felt nothing when she kissed the guy she thought she liked. Little does she know but Zach's brother Zane has always liked her, and has no problem asking her out all the time, of course she takes the whole thing as a bit of a joke, much to Zane's dismay.
Keelie is tattooed and very pretty from her description. She also seems to be a bit more on the reserved side, but I think that comes from her past. It's like she is trying to be as under the radar as she can be, she doesn't want anyone to really notice her too much. It's clear from early on in the book that she is hiding something about her past, and it definitely makes her nervous. The whole mystery behind her and her past totally kept me interested in the book, I also really liked how much her friends care about her and are willing to go to bat for her. I think that says a lot about a person.
Now as for Zane, he definitely gives off a hot Clark Kent vibe, which surprisingly worked for me.Read more ›
Very Brief Synopsis - The book opens at Zach and Abigale's wedding, where Zane is taking wedding photos. He and Keelie share a moment, one Zane has been trying to share with Keelie for years. He wants to pursue the connection between he and Keelie, but she is skittish, to put it mildly. Zane is so Zen. He just keeps trying, even after Keelie goes back to brushing him off after their wedding wonder. Since Zane is moving to Tucson to embrace his dream of becoming a professional photographer, he figures he has plenty of time to get close to Keelie.
Keelie is hiding some pretty big secrets, and she carries a lot of baggage, due to an incident in her past. She has reasons to want to keep from getting close to anyone, but she is drawn to Zane in a way she can't deny or resist. Though she does try...
Meanwhile, Zach is having a hard time with Zane and Keelie, and has some beautifully angsty moments. *Sigh* I love Zach. Travis has something going on that is alluded to.
What worked for me -
Zane. I wasn't sure anyone could top Zach as a hero, but Zane is pretty terrific. He is calm, patient, determined, and focused. Zach expresses concern about Zane's ability to commit, but Zane held out until he was sure of his path. And his heartfelt desire for Keelie shines through every time they share the page.
Keelie. She is prickly, stand-offish and closed off. She is attracted to Zane, but afraid to get too close to him. Slowly, she begins to trust Zane, and shares her secrets.
Zane and Keelie together. These two have a lot in common.Read more ›
