A delightful and heartfelt, ardent yet sweet, definitely entertaining tale of lost love reignited in the midst of family chaos and grandma in trouble.
Prepare yourself with plenty of time and hydration as you start to read this novel, it is unputdownable, fun, emotional, passionate, intense, with a taste of danger and a dash of suspense. It is all those things I love about a great romance novel, it testifies to the deep emotions that the right one ignites again no matter the time passed in between you, it shows the importance and the dysfunction of a family, the good sides and the crazy mess, yet without them, we would be lost.
The connection between Hadley Dalton and Leyton Jameson is one hot sizzling, tangible force. I loved how they reconnected as soon as their eyes met. Yet it was real, it was raw and powerful, and passionate, and they swept me off my feet, for sure.
Hadley is a strong woman. She is not perfect; there are mistakes she has made, there are losses she has faced, the pain and hurt are still strong, yet she is making it, one day at the time. I liked her, I admired her, and I cheered for her, and I swooned for the way Leyton Jameson knew exactly when to support her, when to listen to her, when to protect her, and when to let her deal with her stuff while having her back. I have loved all the Jameson brothers but Layton, he's something special.
Another delightfully delicious family saga from Ms. Fossen that swipes the readers off their feet, makes them laugh and smile, and sigh and even tear up, bringing all the feels and troubles a family can face mixed with all the joy and jubilee one can experience.
An entertaining and satisfying read - like the whole series has been - that I can highly recommend.
