The author does such a great job of shaping the characters. Drew & Bree are the type of people you root for in life. They seem like people you know. People you have had dinner with or that went to school with you. The weight of disaster that they pull along with them doesn't seem hold them back but certainly shapes them into the damaged souls they are. And once they meet, WOAH! After a few awkward run ins and blunders, they accept that they can't stop what's starting. The way the author lays out the story you can feel the beach, the summer and the flirtatious attraction. The small town setting stirs up nostalgic feelings of budding romance, of butterflies and pet names, and all the things that make you giddy over love. Very quickly they realize that this is the best thing that has happened to either one of them in a very long time .Once they realize that the heart wants what it wants, their relationship turns from flirtations to intense. Drew fills in the gaps of Bree's heart she didn't even know existed, and before she even knew she wanted it to happen.
I love the supporting cast- Mick, Pat, Sue, Liam. They all help the reader to understand not only where Drew & Bree come from but also what helped them get there. The sense of family is both admired and mourned, making every character in this story a key piece in the journey to finding true, faithful, trusting love.
I can not wait to find out how these two overcome the newest hurdles life has placed in their path. I am rooting for these two to make it!!!
The author created some fascinating characters, and though I don't know much about MMA, I thought she did an excellent job with description and helped me to visualize everything.
I was disappointed that we didn't get to see more of Bree and Drew falling in love. It took so long for them to meet, I felt like their courtship was glossed over. I adored the cliffhanger ending, which was very well executed!
Drew is an MMA fighter in training; he's running from his tragic past and along his journey meets Pat (who I just loved) who helps him overcome a mishap then takes him under his wing. Eventually Pat sends Drew to meet and train with Mick Murphy and it is from that point on that the story really takes off. Drew is not just another gorgeous fighter (although he is), he's funny, caring and very easy to fall for.
Bree Murphy runs her household although she's barely an adult herself. Having lost her mom at a young age, she's grown up caring for her twin brother Liam (who has Asperger's) and her father, Mick; she does it all: cooking, cleaning, even home-schooling her brother so that he can get the best education possible, all while sacrificing her own social life of any kind. She's got a big heart, she's smart and she's determined to make life the best it can be for those around her.
Of course this is a love story so when Bree and Drew meet, sparks fly. And they meet in an unconventional way which made the story that much more enjoyable. I love how they had such a quick connection to each other and as they got to know each other more and more, their feelings for each other grew stronger. This is something the author does really well, you can feel the emotions of each character, almost as if you're right there with them. (And Drew is so cute I often wanted to be right there with him haha!)
In addition the supporting characters are great too.Read more ›
I've been friends with Stacey for a while, so I fully expected to like this book. But what I *didn't* expect was to love it as much as I did.
Now anyone who knows me knows that I love broken characters, so Drew was really right up my alley. He's more than broken. He's wrecked. But his heart is so good. And he's trying so hard to put that nasty past behind him. Bree is caught in a trap of her own. Having lost her mother at a fairly young age, she's been acting as mom and wife to her brother and father for years and she's stuck there.
The beginning of their relationship is something of a comedy of errors. I won't spoil, but let's just say that one begins to wonder after a while if they'll ever get it together.
But then they do, and their love grows and makes them both happier than they've ever been. They weather a family crisis and their relationship grows even stronger.
Just when I thought they were going to get their happily ever after, the unthinkable happens, and I'm left wondering what the future will hold for them.
I read a lot of books. I even read a lot of first time publications from authors, and this is one of the best I've read. I can't wait to see where Stacey takes me in her next book.
