This entire series has appealed to this reader who loves a serving of angst in her romance...and this book had that in spades.
Marybell...wow, who would have guessed that she was hiding so much under that facade of makeup? And it goes so far beyond having a rough childhood, because she definitely had that. No, this book goes to the point of 'how much bad luck can one person have in life?' Marybell spent her whole life shuffled around the foster system...never with anyone she could count on and she spent a lot of that time basically fending for herself, but she managed it and graduated from high school with good enough grades to get a scholarship to college, where she was doing fairly well. She was in her senior year and landed a prestigious internship...an internship that cost her everything. Within two years, she was homeless and eating out of dumpsters when Landon rescued her off the street and took her under his wing. After the debacle of the internship, she became nationally infamous so she began to hide under a goth facade of heavy make-up and spiked hair that hid the vulnerable girl and her real identity. She's managed that way now for two years...until Tag.
Tag has his own road of hardships. He made a bad business decision which cost him everything financially. His resulting depression and alcoholism cost him everything else...besides his brothers. Now he's finally getting his life back and will to move on and he's intrigued by the sexy little Marybell. He has no doubt that the "get-up" hides some secret hurt, but he has no idea that his hurt and her hurt are tied together. She does...which is why she's insistent that he stay away from her...something he doesn't do.
Literally, my heart breaks in this book for Marybell.Read more ›
I'm actually surprised, because though I liked Marybell just fine, out of all the Call Girls, she was the one that stood out the least to me. I thought for sure Em's story would have been my favorite. But as I said in my review of Something To Talk About, Em is much better suited as a secondary character. I still stick by that, Emmaline was amazing in this book; she works best when she isn't the heroine.
This is the last book in the Plum Orchard series (guess it's a trilogy with a prequel). I don't want it to end. I really just want to beg her for more.
Uncensored comments straight from Kindle (sort of - it was a PDF, I took notes)
1. "But it wasn’t as though there was any hiding from the three pretty faces full of concern, pressed against the glass of her front door like a trio of suction-cupped Garfields in the back of a car window." - I'd forgotten all about those little guys!
2. You can tell Dakota loves The Walking Dead, a lot of references to the show in her books as of late. ;)
3. “I can’t just let you light my pilot for free.Read more ›
Tag is a rascal. He's working hard to prove that his past mistakes are just about behind him. He's charming, and sweet, and absolutely smitten by the colorful and prickly Ms. Lyman. Undeterred by her attempts to keep him at arms length, he woos Marybell in full view of God and the dreaded Mags.
Marybell would love to be Tag's girl, but if the truth of her identity came out, she could lose everything, especially Tag.
"I don't remember confirmin' our date."
He popped open a bag of chips and dumped them on her plate with another grin. "Ah, but you didn't
deny it, either."
"So if I don't say no, it's automatically a date?"
"That's what the rule book says."
"Who wrote this rule book?"
"Probably some desperate guy who couldn't get a firm yes for a date."
I received a copy of this book in return for an honest review.
Talking After Midnight is Dakota Cassidy's contemporary romance Plum Orchard series grand finale. As the last of the series, it's brought things to a close with a triumphant win. In my personal opinion, this was definitely a case of saving the best for last.
After one novella and two full length novels, the little town of Plum Orchard is well established.Read more ›
