- Another star was taken out because this book is a lot about grief and counselling, felt less than a romance. Lots of drama for both H/h.
- It took me two days to read the book and that's saying a lot. It was dragging certain subjects too long or too often and I was tired of it.
- I didn't feel good about their relationship; it was more physical than anything else; from the first the h wanted to sleep with the H then she loves him (!) - there is nothing in between. How could they decide to love each other when they didn't see each other - they went several weeks in between dates.
- For sure, it was fun to read about some events from the first book but with another POV.
- You really need to read book one My Rodeo Man to understand certain positions or problems.
The advance copy I read of this book is my first book by this author, and I found it to be masterfully crafted, with thought, care, insight, and attention to detail—poetic prose that touch the heart and echo on the soul, full of deep emotion, abundant in pain and loss and, best of all, overflowing in joy and love. Nate and Lauren are both characters I immediately fell in love with. Nate’s being mired and stuck in the grief and loss from his past immediately resonates, as does his instinctual stuffing the feelings away in a box and burying them deep. Lauren’s free spirit and altruistic need to save the world and fix everyone both attract Nate and scare him silly. I thought Lauren was a bit naïve at first, but circumstances beyond her control shake her to her foundation, causing her to reevaluate her beliefs and gain a more mature perspective. I found the relationship between the two fascinating. A lot of push and pull, but both characters learn and grow and find a way to be what the other needs without compromising their own progress.
This book has a bit of everything – the pain and grief of loss, the willingness to change and grow, realistic life events that demand reexamining core beliefs and protective mechanisms, and deep, abiding love. Nate’s big family is warm and welcoming and painted in such a way that the reader feels like a peripheral part of the family, and Lauren’s family is equally endearing. I like the fact that the first book in the series is parallel to this one – Nate’s brother Zach’s romance with Ashley happens in the same time frame as Nate and Lauren’s, and now I want to read that book, as well. And I hope the other brother, Josh, will have his own book soon. I really enjoyed “My Sexy Veterinarian,” full of heart, sweet sensuality, spunk and courage.
A few issues made me put it at 4 stars. The similes overflowed the pages like a raging river in a monsoon; in other words, enough to drown a reader. Inconsistent timeline; depending on the reference, Sharon was diagnosed 36 or 24 months ago, died either 36, 30, 28, or 18 months ago, and they were supposed to get married either 26 or 17 months ago. There was quite a lot of missing punctuation, maybe not an issue for most but a pet peeve of mine. Nate held many sexist beliefs which he called “traditional.” While Lauren thought he didn’t really think that way, she wasn’t sure, and other than Nate trying couples yoga (“yoga is for girls”), he didn’t seem to show any change of those beliefs.
The h is a therapist and wants to help H who is still suffering from losing his fiancé, so I expected some drama. There was a ton of emphasis placed on therapy and grief throughout the entire book, making *a whole lot* of heavy drama, and not all in a good way. It often felt much like a self-help book and not nearly enough like a romance.
Overall, still an enjoyable book.
I voluntarily read an advance reader copy in exchange for an honest review.
