I'll start by saying that it's the trademark family-oriented approach of The Will that kept me reading. Kristen Ashley never, ever, fails to give her readers a family that they fall in love with. Connor, Amber, and Ethan were the absolute highlight of this story, keeping me turning the pages long after I wanted to stop. Jake is a great father and one that I could easily relate to as a parent. I loved these people and was invested in their development, even though they resembled pretty much every other family that KA has written about. It didn't matter because I love them every single time!
The love story in The Will is predicated on the rocky notion that Jake fell in love with the perfect but damaged Josie years before they met based on stories and pictures provided by her beloved (and also seemingly perfect) grandmother whose funeral opens the book. Josie is a fairly typical KA heroine with an extra side of weirdness and a perfection tiara that surpasses every other KA heroine I've ever read about. Josie doesn't like kids, but somehow says all the right things to Jake's kids, making their lives better. Josie has walls around her due to earlier trauma but every male that meets her is in love with her and she's just too innocent to notice. Josie talks as if she either fell out of a Jane Austen novel or came from an alien planet and people love it.
Jake, though sexy as all get out, is almost as perfect, except he has a temper. Thank God.
I did find the setting absolutely beautiful and the secondary characters were hilarious, especially the Taylors. Sadly, I didn't find myself intrigued enough to want to read the next book, which has pretty much never happened with a KA series.
I read a number of nasty reviews that criticized the accent the heroine had in this story, and I'll admit, it is a little odd at first. However, as you continue to read, Josie's accent totally makes sense and helped to shape the funny and loving character she is.
Josie's parents sucked. Her grandmother Lydia raised her and was the only person Josie could depend on. After falling for the wrong guy in college, Josie leaves town to work with a successful photographer and travel the world. Lydia has her come to visit often and decides to push a man into her life that Lydia knows will make Josie happy.
Jake has been married three times, all of which were bad choices that resulted in failed marriages. But he ended up with his kids, Conner, Amber and Ethan, all three of which are wonderful. Jake does everything he can to provide for them and he's an amazing dad and man. He and kids grow close to Lydia and love her like family. Jake had no idea the gift Lydia would leave him in her will would change his life and bring his and Josie's lives together.
Like I mentioned above, Josie's accent is a little hard to get used to, but it suited her and helped develop her character. I loved Jake and Josie together and absolutely adored his three children.
This was a beautiful story of finding love and happiness and happy endings. As with all KA books, I loved it and can't wait to see what's up next from this author.
Josephine and Jack are older than most couples we read about in romance.
They are mature, have life experience.
Jack has been married before and has 3 kids.
Josephine always searched for love but didn’t find it. She had a crush on her photographer boss, but neither she or he did anything about it.
Lydia (Josephine's grandmother) had a unique bond with Jack and his children. They often spent time together at her house and formed a special bond.
In her will, Lydia left Jack to Josie.
What Josie comes to understand is, that Lydia left her a good man, his 3 children, and bet on them taking things further.
They discovered one another. They couldn’t be more different, but they clicked and the romance between them blossomed.
Josie left her comfort zone, she got to know, appreciate and love Jack's kids.
Jack got to know the woman beneath the perfect façade. A woman looking for love and family.
Jack was a family man. He believed in love and relationships. He gave the people in his life everything he had. His past experiences with love didn’t make him jaded.
Jack was another great alpha male written by Kristen Ashley.
He knew to claim Josie as his own early on, and discourage other males from doing so.
