Intro: This week has been weird. Adjusting to a new dog is not the easiest. But he's adorable and sweet and perfect in every possible way. It has cut into my reading time though. I did manage to finish this one.
Heroine: Isabelle-I did not have much of a problem with her at all. In fact, I quite liked Isabelle. She did come off as a bit indecisive at times but she was pretty great for the most part. She had a very admirable strength to her.
Hero: Gabriel- I LOVED GABE!!! I don't do the all caps squeal very often but I was on the verge of a fangirl swoon with this one. Very few people can write a hero like Carly Phillips. He was very Darcy-like. Kind of aloof and close off but with an innate kindness.
Chemistry- I don't think I could dislike a romance with Gabe in it. I just loved how protective he was over Izzy. I also loved how they knew each other before and were attracted to each other. Their history together made it more interesting for me.
Conclusion-I loved this book and I love Carly Phillips. My mother is a big, huge fan of her books so I am going to buy this one for her so we can fangirl over Gabe together. This was just the perfect book with just the right mix of romance and a touch of angsty goodness.
