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. It easy to see that Zane is just a really good guy, and I liked how patient he was with Keelie and getting her to see him as something more and start to open up to him. He has some great moments where it is clear that he is more than just a reserved guy, he's got some tough guy buried in him and he has no problem bringing it out when he needs to, especially to protect Keelie.
Keelie and Zane have great chemistry together, and I will admit to pulling for these two from the very beginning of the book. They were super cute together, and the author did such a great job at amping up the anticipating and angst. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and I would easily recommend it.
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. Both a little lost, a little lonely, both with a spirit of helping the underdog. The smexy times with these two...wow! So sexy and hot! The wedding moment aside, this is a slow build of a story, with a deeply emotional connection between the characters.
Lots of Zach and Abby time, which is always good.
The writing was solid and engaging. Great dialogue, good pacing, intriguing plot...in other words, trademark Shiloh Walker.
What didn't work as well - Not one thing
Bottom line - Highly recommend. Can easily be read as a standalone.(That said - If you haven't read Wrecked, you should run, not walk, to the computer and one-click immediately. Wrecked is one of the best books I have read in a long, long time) No cliffhangers, though there are a few
teasers for the rest of the brothers.
