So Allie and Hudson were together once when they were much younger, like 10 years in the past. Allie comes from a prestigious family and Hudson, well Hudson doesn't. So Allie keeps their relationship secret and sneaks out to see him. There is a misunderstanding at the end of their time together, but their time together was never meant for the long term, so they went their separate ways. Hudson went on to live a harder life and Allie went on living in her world of the upper class.
Thankfully Allie is pretty grounded, in fact from what I can tell in this book Allie isn't impressed with all the rich people around her or the gossip or what is expected of her. She wants to live her life, work at the job she loves, and make a difference, not end up being some trophy wife who plays doubles tennis with a bunch of gossiping rich girls. Honestly, Allie is my kind of girl, I would want to be friends with her, and I loved her friend Harper. Down side to Allie is that she is engaged to the world's biggest jerk, and his a French jerk (which bums me out because I love the French, but hey every country has a few bad seeds so that's what we will call Julian, a bad seed).
Now on to our hero, Hudson, who is very much the alpha guy in this book. And I like that about him. Sometimes when you have a powerful kind of dominate guy it's too much and it feels like he is too pushy, but in this book it was just the right amount. I liked that he is a good brother and a savvy business guy. I liked that he was willing to overlook things with his past with Allie and move forward. I know a lot of people aren't going to enjoy the whole Allie and Hudson thing because Allie is engaged, but honestly when you get to know Julian and then you get to know Hudson, I don't think anyone is going to have a problem with (especially the more you get to know Julian the more you really how horrible he really is).
Don't expect to get your happily ever after in this book, but that's perfectly okay, and honestly makes me even more excited for the next book in the series. I really did enjoy the ride on this book, the pacing was great, the chemistry between Hudson and Allie was awesome, and there were just a lot of little elements that kept drawing me in. Great start to the series, highly recommended.
Hudson Chase is one sexy character. From the moment he graces the presence on page one, he exudes charisma. The main characters, Allie and Hudson have a history from when they were teenagers that just ended with out any closure. Forward 10 years and bam! They are re-connected in a way that makes one swoon. A chance meeting at a charity event, a dance and the rest is history so to speak. Their connection is powerful and sexual. They want to finish what never happened that one summer. However, Allie is engaged to Julian and she finds out a lot about her parents and her "so-called" life. I do not want to give away too much because I like people to read on their own and fall in love with the characters based on their own opinions. I will say this....Hudson Chase is now my new book boyfriend, (Sorry, Mr. Grey) and I can not wait until the rest of this series to see where it takes Hudson and Allie. Can their new reintroduced attraction survive?
Congratulations Ann Marie and Amy! This is a fantastic start to your new career! Loved every page of this book.
(I can relate to this story as I am sure many of the readers all have that one summer romance that they wish they could re-connect)
