I really appreciate how the author let the characters reveal themselves. For once, I didn't know someone's backstory from the start, which made the revelations more impactful. That being said, I was a bit surprised at Quinn's behavior given her history. It would have helped to know more about her experience while she was "away" and how that impacted her. Still, surviving is messy and no one has the right to tell you (even when you're a fictional character) what you "should" be doing or acting like.
Anyway. I really liked this couple. They were puzzle pieces whose pain fit together. She was stand-offish in a spiked necklace kind of way and he was brooding and barely breathing. Underneath all the leave-me-alone vibes, they were really cute together (and sexy). Quinn made him laugh and Riker was attentive and supportive. Everything about them was touching, real, and sexy! I'm glad they were the catalyst the other needed to start moving ahead in life with purpose.
It's testament to the author's skill that the characters felt real and developed, as short as the book was. Still, I wish this book was a smidge longer so as to fill in the blanks between Quinn's time away and the current moment. I took away half a star for the blurry ending. Everything about the court scene went by in a flash and seemed disjointed.
Quinn and Riker are a match made in heaven. Surface tough and hiding their hearts, as well as their pasts, to create unabashed humor and sexual armor. I love that the author unfolded each character’s story in their own time, not rushing. It made you savor every moment Quinn and Riker were with each other all that much more. The inclusion of their pets, Nox and Harley, and how they each of them was pure gold.
By the time K. T. Thomas shows you Quinn and Riker’s dark secret you want to jump into the book and help both of them. This story has everything a reader could possibly want and more. Except for tissues…I need some of them.
“No matter how dark the moment, love and hope are always possible.”
The story starts off rather confusing. It uses 2 points of view and I initially had a WTF moment as I was unprepared. It took me a chapter or 2 to figure out the formula because the points of view aren't clearly identified. Just a hint first part is his second part is hers.
Quinn has some history and while she keeps it to herself we ever so slowly learn about Quinn. Shes a very secretive, stubborn, and quite frankly a but of an jackhole. Which is probably why I love her.
Riker he roped me in real quick. His foul attitude and hate for life completely relateable. We’ve all had times whe life has beaten us down. Thats whats happened to Riker. The only thing keeping his head above water is Kox, the stubborn house that belonged to his late grandfather.
They meet when Quinn is attending her niece's birthday party at the ranch where Riker works. There definitely some spark but Quinn’s sister stomps it out quickly. At least that’s what she thinks.
They run into each other Sparks fly and panties drop. They are strictly feck buddies until the inevitable happens. They start to catch feelings. Its new for both of them because they have been hurt before and one of them cant handle everything.
I loved their flawed relationship. Its relateable in many ways and yet a few experience. This was the first book I read from Thomas. I greatly enjoyed the snark and the characters but most of all I love how real it all felt.
