Felicity’s family made me furious and disgusted. They were not just entitled snobs, but also cruel. This was not towards Felicity, but towards the Parker family. Knox’ family wasn’t much better though. In a lot of areas the families were opposites. For the Parkers I mostly felt sadness and frustration in their not acting at the injustice been done towards their family and Knox.
Without giving too much away about the plot, Knox has changed a lot. He’s not the same boy Felicity fell in love with. Circumstances have transformed him, made him harder, even colder. It will take some time to push those new walls down, and I liked how she never really gave up on him. All these years her heart belonged to Knox, and that is the one thing that hasn’t changed.
Knox is not a guy to hold a grudge, which is admirable when you find out what he’s been through. Though there is this anger within him, that he needs to learn to channel in a good way. I loved getting inside his head, ’cause he’s almost stoic on the outside. When you hear his thoughts you realize he’s such a loving guy.
All Knox ever wanted was to see Felicity happy, but through the years he figured out that role wasn’t for him. Which is ridiculous really, ’cause he’s the type of guy who would give you the world. He just needs to realize that again. That love isn’t a material thing, that loving Felicity is all she needs to be happy.
Worth It was such a marvelous story. With the flashbacks we get to see how much the characters have changed throughout the years, but the love for each other is still there. An amazing addition to a series that keeps getting better with each book. There are some darker elements that broke my heart, and were not easy to read about. Though I liked the fact that Linda Kage didn’t shy away from them.
Knox is a strong character, but with a very soft heart, and Felicity is his sunshine. Being next to her is what keeps him going. I feel like I could gush about these two for a couple of more hours, so I’ll just leave you with the advice to read their story a.s.a.p.
1. I found the alternating present/past structure particularly annoying in this book. Given that the plot was extremely obvious, the present/past structure was a mistake. It was unnecessary and I could not identify what was the point of alternating chapters this way (unlike in other books). I think it weakened the story instead of enhancing it.
Spoilers from here until end of the review:
2. There were too many things that were not explained or didn't make sense. How was he charged (did Felicity not even try to set the record straight?). It's not explained. What happened? Why did she only try to see him once? Did she ever write? If not, why?
3. Some of the dynamics of their relationship were unrealistic. How is it possible he never for one second resented her (for not visiting, writing). Even if he wanted her to be happy, why not feel disappointed about how easily she gave up? Humans are often irrational and in such a situation would to an extent resent that someone is not visiting or writing even if we asked them not to. Felicity is supposef to be deeply in love with Knox and waited for him for a while. Why not contact him?
4. Regarding the characters:
Younger Felicity was naive and pampered in some ways due to how she was raised, but had a few endearing traits. However, older Felicity was a huge disappointment. Although not her fault, I found it odd how little emotion she experienced in the story about her role in his incarceration. She was insensitive toward Knox when they were reubited and too pushy. Her self centered reactions were off putting. Many survivors of sexual trauma unfortunately/unfairly feel intense shame. Her insistence that her two friends tell her what happened to Knox was a violation. He made it clear that he was not ready for her to know. Her own desires easily overrode her concern for him (would push too hard then resent when he would walk away). The author chose to emphasize Knox's suffering. That is why Felicity's self centered behavior (which really wasn't extreme) was very off putting because the reader is aware of what Knox went through.
