For me, Cole, on initial appearance, was not a likable character. I disliked the way he treated many of the supporting characters, which means he had a lot of work to do to redeem himself. He isn't necessarily a bad person, just a little bit misguided. Though he may not see it, his actions and words are hurtful. BUT people can change and be better.
Marley is a very likable character. Even though she is dealing with a lot of issues stemming from her parents, trauma, and loss, she is still vibrant and full of life. Everyone likes her and wants to be around her. She is a genuinely good and kind person.
The connection between Cole and Marley is deep and instant. And it is so much more than physical chemistry. It is a sense of belonging. These two see one another - past the masks and the flaws.
The suspense woven throughout makes for an interesting plot point. And it is a twist that no one sees coming.
I also got a kick out of the Affirmations and Bro Tips that appear at the start of each chapter. They are some pretty valuable words of wisdom (and some are pretty darn funny).
I adore Krystyna's writing style. It is the perfect blend of heart and heat. What Once Was Mine is a great way to ease into her writing style for those who have never read her.
I'm planning to pick up the rest of the books in this series, so I can lean more about this quirky little town and its residents.
The deeper I got into it, the more I realize how confusing is the narration.
For example Cole and Marley had a one night stand. After months of not seeing each other Cole found out she’s living in the small town in Maine where he also happen to be inhabiting. He goes to Marley, her and he became intimate then soon after Cole became cold and Marley turn into a dismissive bitter person. That scene confused the heck out of me and I’m still trying to wring my brain cells around it.
I was desiring for a light, slow burn read, but this turn into a boring angst hot mess half way through. And the constant comparison of movies by Marley was very disconcerting.
It was a somewhat disjointed written, underdeveloped story and I was just not into it like I thought I’ll be.
Not something I’ll easily recommend.
Cole and Marley’s love story had everything I was looking for to keep the COVID-19 boredom away.
Cole, a genuine lothario, knows things need to change in his life but when and how. Marley, a woman facing down the past that’s been eating her alive can feel in the air that something has to change but what. A night of a chance encounter sets in motion an explosive attraction between the two that lasts more than just one night.
Marley’s spunky nature and Cole’s devil may care attitude took me on a ride into Falls Village. Cole really has a lot to learn about how to truly love. There were times when I wanted to slap him up side the head. Ha! Marley is a beautiful strong woman overcoming tragedy. When Marley and Cole cross paths in Falls Village, she doesn’t exactly make it easy for him. The only thing wrong is she couldn’t resist his sexiness and charm for very long. Ahem! She should have given him more hell. Ha!
Cole sets out to win Marley over and eventually truly sees the light when Marley is in danger. Oh yeah, the plot bunny worked over time when it came to the intriguing PLOT TWIST!!! I didn’t quite see that coming. Way to give a reader a heart jump!
I could go on about this story but the main thing is I loved every minute of Marley and Cole’s story. This was a wonderful, seamless addition to the Falls Village series.
Definitely a 5 star read.
