Intro: I actually had to rewrite this review because I lost the scrap of paper it was written on. And that is a good thing because I loved this book so much more the second time around.
Heroine: Cecilia-I liked her. She was a smart, strong and very capable heroine. I liked that she didn’t let her past get to her too much. Her past plays a role but doesn’t define her or hinder her progress. I also loved how she bonded with Lind’s son, Jeremy.
Hero: Lind-He was ill-tempered and crotchety but he had a vulnerability about him that I really loved. His past had a very big impact on his life and his behavior. I found myself both frustrated with him and protective of him.
Chemistry: I absolutely loved Cecilia and Lind together. It sounds corny but they helped each other heal from their pasts and it was quite sweet. It definitely was a bit of a slow burn which I really appreciated.
Conclusion: I loved this book so much. I haven’t read a book by Ashlyn Macnamara before but I think I need to pick up more of her books. This was the perfect balance of angst and romance. And I absolutely loved both Cecilia and Lind. They were such well-drawn and interesting characters. I will definitely be following the rest of this series.
Ashlyn Macnamara is the author of What a Lady Craves, A Most Devilish Rogue, and A Most Scandalous Proposal. She lives in the wilds of suburbia outside of Montreal with her husband and two teenage daughters. When not writing, she looks for other excuses to neglect the housework, among them knitting, reading, and wasting time on the Internet in the guise of doing research.
