First of all, Meg is a great heroine. She’s open and vulnerable, but never weak or stupid. She’s the type of woman you’d want to be friends with in real life—fun, sassy, with a great sense of humor. Right from the beginning, I was invested in her story and rooting for her to get her happily ever after.
Noah is a hot cop who is good to his family and his dog. Is there really anything sexier than that?
It was good to see the rest of the Sawyer clan again, too. But while there are characters from other books in the series in this story, it can be read as a standalone. If you don’t want to dive into the series from book 1 (which would be weird because it’s a great series, but whatever), you can pick this one up and you won’t be lost or confused or annoyed at the size of the cast of secondary characters.
If I was going to nitpick, I’d warn you all about a couple of things. These things weren’t enough to make me rate the book down or stop reading, but...I made a note and side-eyed Noah a little:
But still, minor nitpicks notwithstanding, this was a good, emotional, sexy read about a sweet, funny, hilarious girl-next-door type and her hot, slightly damaged alpha hero. It works on pretty much every level.
And I’m assuming it’s Sylvia’s turn for a HEA next, and I’m ALL IN. :)
Does this book contribute to or help crush the romance stigma?
It’s clean and sober. No rehab needed.
