The first sex scene is not realistic or believable for current day. Neither partner is willing to take tests to ensure good health? Chloe states she's had her shots, does she mean birth control?
“I should tell you, I take shots and I’m clean. In fact, you’re my first partner besides Ed in five years. I’m comfortable if you don’t want to wear a condom.”
Wow. He suddenly wished he could claim such a record, but at least he wasn’t a manwhore. “I’m also clean, and you’re my first partner in nine months. Before that, it’s, uh, a bit checkered. But, like I said I’m not into casual sex, not even back in college.” Given the precautions she was taking, he opted to skip the condom. “If you’re good with commando, I am too.”
Young, angry and sad Derek's poetry is a hoot:
“Life sucks. People suck. Everything sucks. Except bacon. Bacon does not suck.”
I doubt I will re-read this book. I may be interested in other works by this author.
That is the only way I can state what I do not like about this story is to give spoilers. First off this story had a hard time keeping my attention. I finished it though but requested a refund for the next three books after reading this book. I found that the author had zero mistakes with editing and that is a real plus since too many books written for kindle these days had a lot of issues with that. That being said this story was boring and it took place in a week and a half which made it totally unbelievable.
The story started out really good with Chloe's house burning down and she meets a really great guy Derek who helps her find a place to stay. She moves in with his adopted family and they are all great. The story had potential and I loved most of the characters. Then Derek offers to let her move into his childhood home and totally flakes on her. He doesn't call her back and leaves her in his dust on dates. It is really weird and there is very little explanation for his behavior. She keeps forgiving him and is basically his doormat. The most annoying thing about the story is how she keeps saying I am going to loose forever with him because I moved into his childhood home. Really? Forever? You only met him a week ago. When he finally grows a pair and realizes he is an a** he goes to the house and apologizes and tells her he can not accept her living in the house but lets move in together I love you. After one week? Not believable! Then a half a week later he is asking her to marry him and she says yes through her tears. What she should have done is run. One week and a half and he wants to get married after ignoring you and leaving half way through all the dates you had. The best part was how happy her parents were.Read more ›
Derek presents so many "images" to Chloe, it's no surprise that she finds it hard to believe he's an executive in the Archer organization - and her reaction solidifies that. I was thankful it didn't take her long to overcome her concern for Derek's profession and to know that she was wrong to compare him to her past relationship. However, Derek's inability to overcome his feelings regarding his house almost ended his relationship with Chloe and I really appreciated how the Archer's helped Derek work through his emotions regarding the loss of his father and his mother, and what his house symbolized about those relationships.Read more ›
Chloe English is a Ribbon Ridge newbie. She needed a new life, so she ended her relationship with her fiance, said goodbye to her smothering mother and left the city of Pittsburgh. After only being in town for a very short time, the house she is renting burns to the ground and she is left with practically nothing. Derek helps her out and a relationship evolves. Chloe helps Derek come to terms with his demons and they evoke on a promising future together.
I enjoyed this holiday novella. I found it to be a slow-paced read, up until the last few chapters. Ms. Burke creates wonderful, realistic characters that are both interesting and engaging. Derek's sadness and distress, caused me to sob on more than one occasion. Overall, this is a solid, enlightening romance, perfect for the holiday season.
