There were no unnecessary drama at all, no third party, and most importantly, there were no main characters doing very stupid things. This one had a little drama because of the conflict that was glad that it wasn't really that intense. Actually, it makes me likes the heroine even more. I love that the drama wasn't stretched out and that the two of them acted rationally considering what just happened. I'm not sure if I could be that calm at all (I'm a bit of a drama queen in real life, haha).
The chemistry of Rafe and Brooke were so strong that I really want to get inside the story and punch them both for not doing something about it. I was mentally shouting "start making up already!" whenever they're having a moment. My! I can't remember how long it was since I felt this worked out with the characters, haha (but it's on a good way, *wink). I love how their attraction grew until they finally realize that it's not just a summer fling they want but to spend the rest of their lives together.
Both of the main characters had their own share of baggage to carry, though I think Brooke handled her own just fine. Rafe on the other hand, though he look wild and dangerous outside, he's kind of messed up inside. Brooke's parents we're both overprotective, they're so overprotective that eventhough she's an adult now, they still keep on hovering with every decisions she makes. Sounds suffocating right? That's why she's working so hard proving them that she's now perfectly able to handle herself. Rafe on the other hand was haunted of what happened to him before and in result, he's always critical about everyone.
Another thing I like about this story is that it was taken from both the main character's POV which really makes it so easy to relate to them.
Brooke. My! I really love this girl. She's very bold, very brave and always say things that she really mean. I can't even count how many times I covered my face whenever she acted so boldly and say all those things to Rafe. My! This girl sure has some spunk. Of all the books I've read this year, I guess Brooke is the very first one that I really really like and I didn't even saw atleast one flaw that I dislike. She's very warm too and I love how caring and trusting she is considering of her upbringing (very protective and unaffectionate parents).
Rafe on the other hand. My! Ever since I read the first chapter, I already have my eyes on him. He wasn't introduced that irresistibly sexy yet but I already have this feeling that this guy is going to rock my world, and my! I really love it when I'm right. I guess it's not a surprise because aside from geeks/nerds and cocky heroes, I also love bad guys, especially those that screams wild and dangerous. Dang! This guy sure have both of those quality, I guess the only lacking was the black leather jacket, *wink. He's not arrogant and was not a jerk until I came to the conflict part, but honestly? I think it's just a bad decision on his part. Not that intense to make you throw something, really. Also, he has his own ghost to deal with but I'm glad Brooke was able to help him overcome it. When he told her about it, I just love how she responded. It was just perfect that it made me teary eyed. They really deserve each other.
I already anticipated half of the conflict considering Rafe being a PI and with a trusting issues, but I have to say that I wasn't disappointed with what happened afterwards. Brooke didn't transformed into a total bitch but acted rationally. What Rafe did was really insulting but I'm glad he was able to redeem himself afterwards. I'm just really glad that everything turned out perfectly and they were both able to work it out without prolonging the drama.
I am giving this story a 4 star rating for now. Even though it was really good, there were times that I skipped some lines just to reach the exciting part. It's definitely not boring, I'm just really excited, haha. This was my first time from the author and I have to say that I'm really impressed. So expect some more reviews from this author in my future posts, *wink.
And yes, this one definitely has HEA with such a sweet epilogue in addition. It always warms my heart whenever there's happy family added. And Sullivan family is sure one lovely family to belong to. And not just that, I love that this story also gave me something to look forward to on the second book. Though I hate celebrity relationship, I love boy bands, and seems like I'll be dealing with that on the second book, *wink. Also, this book is in series but you can perfectly read it standalone.
Brooke has crushed on Rafe Sullivan since the first time she laid eyes on him as an eight year old. He was one of the Wild Sullivans that owned the cottage next door to her grandparents. Rafe was the one that seemed more alive than any of the others. She really missed having them live next door. Now that her grandparents had passed away and left the cottage to her, Brooke lived there full time. She had left her high paying, prestigious position working in Human Resources in Boston to follow her grandmothers and her dream of creating beautiful chocolate truffles. The last thing she expected was to see Rafe Sullivan drive up on a motorcycle.
Rafe needed a break from his business and his sister has just the thing, their old family cottage. Their parents had to sell the cottage in the Cascade Mountains when his father lost his job. The cottage on the lake was for sale and it was going to be his and his families again. It was just the thing he needed to get away from his hectic life in the city. His family had spent many summers in that cottage together, playing, swimming and loving life as a family. When he arrived at the cottage he was surprised at the beautiful woman that threw herself into his arms. He could not believe that this was little Brooke Jansen that had been his sister Mia’s friend. The feelings that he was experiencing seemed wrong, but she was something else.
Brooke offers Rafe a place to stay while he cleans up and renovates his cottage. His problem is he doesn’t know if he can keep his hands to himself or if he will succumb to the beautiful, sweet Brooke. Read this book and you will enjoy a love story that will not be easy to forget!
