Trey, who even though he slept with another woman the day Sierra informed him she wanted a divorce (after, of course, they had sex), maintained that he had never cheated on Sierra. If you are married to one woman and are having sex with another one, trust me, that is the definition of cheating.
And how could he not know that his lawyers (and Luc, I think) shafted Sierra so badly that she had to work nights and put herself through school after the divorce.
Sierra, who tried to get over Trey by getting engaged to a man that a baboon could have seen was completely wrong for her, but refused to have sex with him because....I'm not sure why she was saying no.
Eric. Let's just put a big, black cowboy hat on him because he was so obviously the 'bad guy' from the start. One dimensional and cardboard would be a compliment to describe this character.
Luc. I hate characters who are terrible to the heroine throughout the whole book but then profess to admire and like them in that last chapter. He was a jerk and a bully.
I couldn't for the life of me understand why anyone would want to put up with Trey for any length of time. It took me an afternoon to read this book and I pretty much hated him by the end of it.
And the notion that a male country star cannot sell records unless he is a hard-drinking, hard loving poopyhead (I cleaned up my language for that one) is an insult to men and country fans.
Sierra looks for Trey in a bar they sing at occasionally and finds him taking body shots off another woman. She gets furious with him, but he's able to woo her into having sex with him in a dressing room to try making up. She immediately tells him it was a mistake and that she's leaving him regardless of the "amazing" sex they seem to have. Supposedly, they still love each other but can no longer remain together because of the hurt. He handles his hurt by immediately having sex with someone else when Sierra walks out.
After the divorce Trey goes into a depression and drinks heavily and sleeps around with many women. His sister contacts Sierra five years after the divorce to ask if she will come back and try talking him out of relying on alcohol so much. She of course agrees to this, and the old feelings that never went away between the two ignite once again. From this point we have a few gratuitous sex scenes between Trey and Sierra. It doesn't seem to bother Sierra too much that she is now engaged to another man. She seems to fall quite easily under Trey's manipulations.
The characters then have moments of loving each other, distrusting each other, leaving each other again, coming back together, leaving again, afraid to trust, big surprise pregnancy, telling friends/family off, etc. Sorry for the long run-on sentence, but it was easier to just link it all in there as this is basically the premise of the remainder of the story. I think the big eyeroll moment for me in this story was when Trey told Sierra he never cheated on her during their marriage. Riiiight. Truthfully, I would avoid this book if you happen to dislike stories involving selfish characters who never really come to redemption.
The H wasn't great either. I probably would have felt a little more endearment for the H had he actually acted more like he loved the h as much as he loved himself. He said he loved her, but their relationship was never a priority in his life. Even when the H and h were married, the H was involving himself in sexually inappropriate behavior with other females. He never mourned their relationship instead he jumped into bed the same night his wife left it. Essentially, the H is a weak character who always put his needs above everyone else, never loved the h enough to be a husband to her but whined about the marriage when he didn't have it. Normally a reader can get over such betrayals if the H shows enough remorse and growth. However, he acted just as apathetic when the h and his girlfriend were in the same room together. This would have been a great opportunity to see the H reject unwanted advances and reassure the h that he would always act with her feelings in mind but that never happens. Where is the growth that this character supposedly had? Even taking all this into consideration the worse part of this book was when the h apologizes TO HIM. TO HIM! So, he abandons her after the death of their child, is never home, she sees tabloid all the time in questions behavior and when she goes to look for him he is sucking off shots off OW necks but she apologizes to him for not staying. I guess if you are from the "stand by your man" school of thought you'll enjoy this book.
