My Review

When you set up a romance story with a HEA (happily ever after) in the first book, how do you successful create a sequel? This author has done it in spades.

Although reading this story I was reminded of book one which I read almost over a year ago, I couldn’t remember my feelings about Julia specifically and how she handled what went down. Funny enough, I didn’t write a review, so I have nothing to go on. However, I do know that this book, I liked Julia. Okay, she was stupid a few times and didn’t get the writing on the wall, but she wasn’t a push over either.

Gabriel made my list of top book boyfriends in this one. He did everything right and wrong at the same time. Gotta love him.

This story made me read it straight through without a pause. It was just that good.

Overall, check this series out. I know I liked the first book but I can’t remember exactly how much. But read it anyway and move on to this second one. If you like Fifty, Thoughtless, Reluctant Dom, Poughkeepsie, Easy, Beautiful Disaster, On Dublin Street, you will most likely enjoy this one as well.

My book boyfriend, Gabriel of course.
