Intro: I have been in the sort of reading slump lately where I only feel “right” reading books by authors I have read before. So the prospect of reading a new to me author is daunting. I don’t think it’s a slump really but a rut. But I ended up loving this one. A lot.
Heroine: Maggie-I loved Maggie. She was so likable and witty. She came across as very real to me. That’s not a common thing for me. Her backstory was also quite heartwrenching.
Hero: Tyler-I liked him as well. Oddly enough I liked him a bit less that I liked Maggie. I can’t even pinpoint why. He was a great hero with all the good qualities a good hero should have but I didn’t feel quite the connection with him as I did with Maggie.
Chemistry: I love bicker at first sight romances. I love the banter. And these two definitely had the bicker going. Their stories were also quite tragic. It was lovely to see these two come together.
Conclusion: I really liked this book quite a bit. It’s not very often a book can keep me interested even if I feel a disconnect with the hero. But Kelly created such compelling chemistry between the two main characters that it really didn’t matter if the hero wasn’t to my liking. I can’t wait for the next book.
USA Today bestselling author Mira Lyn Kelly grew up in the Chicago area and earned her degree in Fine Arts from Loyola University. She met the love of her life while studying abroad in Rome, Italy, only to discover he’d been living right around the corner from her back home. Having spent her twenties working and playing in the Windy City, she’s now settled with her husband in rural Minnesota, where their four beautiful children provide an excess of action and entertainment. When she isn’t reading, writing, or running to keep up with the kids, she loves watching movies, blabbing with the girls, and cooking with her husband and friends.
