-- SPOILER ALERT!!! --
Denise Grover Swank ("Swank") knocks it out of the park and beyond once again as book 4 is an absolute amazing read. I loved it! She never disappoints (unless you're on Team Joe. I'm Team Mason all the way.) Swank is truly an awe-inspiring author who knows what her readers want and always delivers without fail. Her talent doesn't just stop at her brilliant story-telling, it's also the in-depth, loveable, and wonderful heroines (and supporting characters) that she creates, all of whom continue to grow and develop into a more self-confident, stronger, and mature individual with each passing novel. It's amazing to see how far her protagonist, Rose Gardner, has come from when we first met her in book 1, "Twenty-Eight and a half Wishes." There's so much I want to say about this novel, but I don't want to give anything away as this series is just brilliant. My favourite part of the whole novel was when Rose takes off her blinders and comes to realize that Mason had been, and was always there for her, even when she was with Joe. I honestly cannot wait to read the next book in the series which can't come soon enough for me. My only hope is that Rose comes to realize that Mason truly loves her; that he loves her just as much as she loves him. Team Mason all the way!
As much, as my heart aches to have Rose with Joe again, I understand and don't blame her for not going back to him. Her relationship with Mason is just adorable and they could not be more perfect for each other. I have to admit, at first I wasn't all for this relationship, but Mason grew on me. There are times, where I wish Rose would still give Joe a chance but that is just me. A love sap for first loves.
Rose and Violet's business is flourishing but their relationship is becoming more strained. Violet is becoming less likable and comes off as very selfish and cruel to Rose. I am glad that Rose is standing up to Violet and I hope she continues to be strong with the people in her life that try to control her.
Rose is working on getting over Joe and moving forward with her life. Mason is playing an even bigger role in her life and things are heating up between them. Joe, on the other hand, is running for political office and is miserable with his life. Hilary is back in his life and she is also a very unpleasant person.
On the mystery side of the story, Daniel Crocker has escaped and is after Rose. He will stop at nothing to get to her and possibly has help from a person or people that work in law enforcement. In this book, we see Mason and Rose on the run from Daniel and unsure of who they can and cannot trust. This was another exciting book by Denise and I cannot wait to read the next one!
I get why Grover Swank wanted to introduced another person into the love story. It makes the series last longer and she can get more money for it. I like both love interests in this, I do. However, I do think that Grover Swank is now sacrificing one character to prop the other.
I mean, could Mason be any more perfect? He listens to everything Rose says. He dotes on her. He never gets angry -- even when she's doing something stupid. He wants to be magnanimous when she's throwing herself at him for sex. He's willing to die to protect her. He's just the perfect man.
The problem I have is, the more I get told someone is the perfect man, the more I start to resent being told how to feel about a character. When you couple that with a backstory on Joe that doesn't seem to fit the timeline -- or the character we initially met -- and I guess I'm stumped.
This is a fun world and Rose is a great character. I'm not in for character propping and character ruination, though. Now that everyone is back in the same town -- and Joe's mustache twirling evil parents (who apparently belong on The Following) are out of the immediate picture -- let's return to some southern charm and balance.
I beg this of you Denise Grover Swank.
