I absolutely adore faulty, awkward characters in the stories because they are so easy to relate to, to find the common ground with them, to understand their predicaments. And Levi Tucker and Faith Grayson deliver as the faulty and awkward protagonists, tenfold.
I can only imagine the amount of anger, disappointment, hate, and need for revenge that is churning inside Levi. Yet all those negative thoughts are very focused on their target, and he does not take it out on just any passerby. With all the hate and anger, there was also kindness, sweetness, tenderness, and decency in Levi that made me fall for him completely. I loved how he was with Faith. How their attraction was stronger than his years built self-control, how the feelings he had for her were stronger than the build-up need for the vengeance.
Faith had lived a sheltered life, by the busy life brought on by her early success and super smarts, as well as the overly protective older brothers who stood like a wall surrounding her from the world and from all the possible disappointments and hurt.
Together, with the burning passion in between them, these two didn't only fly free, they soared through the atmosphere with the ardent adoration and deep understanding they had for each other.
The depth of their emotion - and the deep conversation on the topic - floored me with all the feels. I loved Levi and Faith together, and the connection they shared. I loved the world the author created around them, telling a story that was riddled with familiarity to readers following the series yet a tale that could be a great way to get to know the author's style if a new-to-her reader. The story is shorter in length, yet a great sample of the Copper Ridge series.
A tale of redemption, resurrection, and the power of love, where family, passion, and the yearning for more set the foundation but it is the love that sets them free of the chains of past.
