Conrad, Amelia's ex husband and father of their two beautiful children, cheated on her and tore their family apart. She didn't handle it well, and as a result the kids suffered and ended up choosing to live with their father and his new wife. Amelia realizes it's time she get on with her life and repair the damage she caused to her relationship with her kids. She's an heiress to millions so money is no problem which allows her to purchase a huge home in Magdalene, the new town her ex husband has moved her kids. When her gorgeous neighbor Mickey comes to her rescue, she sees even more reason to discover who she is and do whatever is necessary to win back her children.
Mickey has been hurt before and his main priorities are his two children and working to provide for them. As much as he wants his gorgeous new neighbor Amelia, he's afraid he'll never be able to give her anything she can't get herself.
I'll just start by stating the heat between Amelia and Mickey is off the charts. I liked Mickey a lot in the first book in this series, The Will, and I was thrilled he was getting his happy in this one. He's such a sweet man and he lives and breaths to provide for his kids Cillian and Aisling. They were great kids, as were Amelia's kids, Auden and Pippa.
There are a lot of scenes involving the two main character's children in this book and I found myself tearing up more than once at some of their scenes. It felt real. The things they dealt with, the emotions they felt. It felt real. I have two kids of my own and I remember high school with them wanting to be popular; worrying how to dress; liking someone and wanting them to like them back; dealing with bullies; etc, and going through all of the things the kids in this story went through. It added so much more real to this story.
Amelia was a mess and she broke my heart with how badly she wanted to earn her kids' forgiveness. She needed hugs so often and didn't have anyone there to give them, so I was excited when Josie and Alyssa (characters from The Will) became her friends. This book may be a little lengthy, but it works. The story progresses at a believable pace and it needed the length for the characters to have time to fall in love and do it with the four kids and exes in their lives.
It's really a wonderful book and has one of those amazing epilogues we've come to love from KA. I cannot wait for the next book in this series which will be Coert's, the sexy police chief. Just who was that feisty chick he was arguing with in the middle of the street? Can't wait to see!!
Even though parts of this story made me weepy-ish and I *really* abhore reading about jerkoff cheaters and the mess they make out of the lives around them I stuck to it with this book and I'm so happy I did.
Another thing that I liked about this story is that it wasn't starring a pre-30 youngster, as I get older some of those stories are a total turn off to me. Especially if they are immature, at least to my thoughts, dingbats. It is probably because I can't find myself relating to most of the newer "heroines" out there, who knows?
The thought of a viril man like Mickey, or Jake, out there waiting for me is a nice day dream, much better than an emo youngster who hasn't figured out life yet and happens to be a bad boy, billionaire, man-whore, and a dude who thinks he is an alpha but who is really just an anti-social jerkface.
I can't wait for the next book, for serious.
Two days? You too! AWESOME!
Kristen freaking Ashley A-freaking-men-sistah
Shel: Dude. She's got this power over me and once I sit down to read one of her books, I have the hardest time doing anything else. For instance, I started Soaring Friday morning before work. I worked, went to the homecoming game, and did a few loads of laundry. I stayed up late to read. I got up early to read and I read every spare second I had (apologies to my students for not grading their essays and my family for the house I did not clean) because I was completely sucked in to the story of Mickey and Amy. I absolutely loved that KA made Amy this wonderfully flawed woman. She did some messed up things, owned it, and went about making repairs to all of the damage she did. I loved her. I also enjoyed Mickey--he had that wonderful strong + gentle thing going for him. He wasn't too overbearing, he owned his flaws, and he was great for Amy. I loved them together. I also loved that KA took on the hefty and delicate task of having her characters manage a relationship in which they both had children and involved exes--a truly modern day Brady Bunch blending of people going on here. This series has all of the things I've come to love about Kristen Ashley's books: great characters, funny scenes, chemistry between the main characters, and an engrossing plot and I'm excited to see that there will be a third novel in this series. Until then I have a few more KA novels to tackle, thank goodness!
Court: She did so many jacked up things. And I think that is something that our heroine hasn't had if my memory serves---and I loved that too. She had some life learning to do, and she did a bunch of it prior to our story start...but I liked the journey we were taken on...her very own road to redemption. I liked how much she and Mickey went at it, in their own alpha male/not going to be a pushover female ways, and they brought it out in each other, only to make each other better people and stronger as a couple. They fought, they made up (ooh, lala) and then they got back to the business of being strong and sassy. I loved how much they flat out owned it when they messed up...and I loved how much the kiddos in each family strengthened the plot of this book, and then basically stole the show. If there were ever kids to get a series in the world of Magdalene...it's these! I absolutely devoured this one over my Thanksgiving holiday, and I think you should read it too. The heroine is 47 (I loved this) and she's getting her groove back. I know we can all relate to that no matter what age, so have some alpha male love for Mickey while she's doing it. Girl's got it going on... I loved this book, and thank you AGAIN to Kristen Ashley for making me love it and lose sleep over it. The best I can ask for in a book, and I get it every single time from her!
