Since this is the first book that I’ve read by this author, I really didn’t know what to expect. I was very happily surprised and pleased to give this novel ***** (five) stars
The book begins with an unlikely meeting between Caitlin Monroe and Brady Houston. Each is carrying prior baggage and most certainly not looking for a relationship. However, each sees a need or usefulness in the other for selfish reasons and that’s when the fireworks begin. Will one or both of them develop feelings or the other? Will all of the secrets come to light? Is a relationship possible? Will they each be able to resolve their prior issues? You have to read the book to find out, but it is well worth the read!
CHEMISTRY: 5 stars – Brady and Caitlin have the kind of immediate chemistry that seems as if they have known each other for a while. Not only are they physically attracted to each other, they are mentally and emotionally in tune as well.
PLOT: 4.5 stars – The plot is pretty much boy-meets-girl, boy-and-girl with trust issues, boy-and girl encounter conflict, and all is reconciled. The difference with this book is that you really care about the characters and you want to see them happy.
CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT: 5 stars – Brady is a professional athlete that seems quite shallow. On the other hand, Caitlin seems to have had a hard-knock life with a tremendous chip on her shoulder. But, there is so much more depth to the characters that makes you understand and empathize with their given situations.
STORY FLOW: 5 stars+++ – As a reader I really FELT the story, so much so that I took my time reading it and then read it a second time. As I got to know the characters, I really wanted them to win.
LOVE SCENES: 5 stars – Only three words are necessary…varied, loving, and HOT.
I am so glad I got a chance to read this book. I really didn’t want it to end. I must say that I will add this to my list of favorite reads and I will definitely be reading more from Jamie Wesley in the near future.
