"A love story, his and mine. Ordinary, and yet extraordinary. One, unlike any other."
This series captured my heart with the first book, Unlike Any Other. The Colthurst-Decker family hold a special place in my heart and Ainsley Janine (AJ) is such an awesome, real, kickass female character. I simply adore her! I was really looking forward to this book, Mason Bradley just did things to me in the first book. I seriously wanted to see him and Ainsely Janine Colhurst-Decker together.
I knew this wasn't going to be a walk in the park and there would be tears, angst and who knew what else. Boy was it ever, my emotions were all over the place. AJ (Nine to Mase) and Mason (Ten to AJ) are best friends, grew up together and have this one-of-a-kind bond where no amount of time or space could ever sever their connection. I love a best friends to lovers story especially when it's done exceptionally well like this one was.
In addition to the usual concern with what happens to the friendship if they crash and burn? There was also the fact that AJ and Mason dating would shake up the family dynamic: Mason was also friends with AJ's brothers - MJ and JC - she is a triplet. And finally, the biggest obstacle of all was Mason Bradley. Needless to say, they go for it.
"Let's dare and try."
Mason is this insanely smart, sexy and superior man with stealth and lethal skills at securing, protecting and if needed, destroying.
"We shared blissful and magical moments, also the unsurprisingly complicated times where I had no idea how to fix the situation or how to react to what he said."
I truly enjoy Ms. Burgoa's writing style. She's creates these rich, realistic characters and their development is beautifully done.
