Intro Babble: This series started out very well for me with TheOfficer Breaks the Rules and then fell a bit short with TheOfficer Says "I Do". I was hoping for this series to make a big comeback with Dwayne and Veronica's book and I am happy to say that it did.
Heroine: Veronica-I really really liked her. And that's a victory in and of itself lately. I usually balk at the more conservative heroines for some reason. But not Veronica. I guess because I liked her so much in the last book. And it was incredibly easy to identify with her even though her past was rather extraordinary.
Hero: Dwayne-I never thought I would like a hero named Dwayne so much. But I did. He had a very slick Southern charm but it wasn't at all shallow. He had layers. He had a very sensitive and broken side as well. He was definitely my favorite hero out of the three in this series.
Chemistry: There was a lot of the should they/shouldn't they going on because of Veronica's past and Dwayne's PTSD. I liked that both of those storylines were not brushed over at all. I did not, however, like how Dwayne treated Veronica towards the end of the book because of his own personal hangups. I thought it was unfair and it made me mad.
Ending Babble: I am in love with this book. The characters were all well-drawn and interesting. It was very easy to identify with each one of them. I also really enjoyed the slow-build of the relationship between Dwayne and Veronica was just perfectly paced and so much more satisfying a story than the insta-love books I have been reading lately. I think this one may be my favorite out of the series.
