This book earned it’s 4 stars almost entirely because of Logan, the hero, and his brothers. I would’ve read an entire story about nothing but this man and his family. The heroine and the romance were just fringe benefits of reading about Logan. Here’s what I love about Logan:
He’s deaf, but his deafness doesn’t really impact his life in a negative way at all. He doesn’t feel sorry for himself, and he does everything he wants to do in life without worrying about his deafness.
He doesn’t enjoying talking, but almost immediately talks to Kit, just because it’s easier for her that way. That’s just one example of his selflessness.
He didn’t make the best first impression on Kit (he really did deserve that punch in the nose), but after that initial stumble, he was a perfect gentleman (while still managing to be protective, alpha, and all kinds of sexy).
He wasn’t just looking for sex. He stuck to his guns when it came to Kit. He said he wouldn’t have sex with her until she trusted him, and he didn’t cave. You gotta love a man with willpower, amiright?
He was all-kinds-of-adorable while taking care of his niece. You gotta love a man who’s good with kids, amiright?
It’s not that Kit isn’t a good heroine, because she is. She’s just completely outclassed by Logan as far as I’m concerned. And while I’m being honest, I wasn’t totally buying her reasons for being on the run and maintaining her false identity. It wasn’t like she was in WITSEC or anything. I thought she was maybe being a little melodramatic about the whole no-one-can-know-who-I-am-I-can’t-trust-anyone schtick. I also saw ZERO reason why she had to be seperated from Logan at the end for 3 months. Logan had every right to be angry at her and never speak to her again, in my opinion. (But, of course, that’s just not Logan’s style. He’s too awesome to hold a grudge. I totally would have, though. Just sayin’.)
But, long-story-short, this was a good read. It was sexy, fairly low-angst, and interesting/highly entertaining. Logan’s brothers were clearly sequel bait, but I didn’t mind because they were super interesting. I’ll DEFINITELY read Matt’s story. I’d download this one now, folks. (It’s free right now. You never know how long that kind of thing is going to last.)
Full disclosure: We received an ARC from NetGalley, free of charge.
