So, Romance Rehab, you’re probably saying, if you liked the book so much, why not give it a 5-star rating instead of 4? Well, the only thing that didn’t really work for me was how easily the couple’s problems were solved by love. It seemed like all that emotional damage was overcome by this couple falling in love. Yes, Finn went to a few court-mandated therapy sessions that probably helped, but it was ultimately Sol who “saved him” from his destructive behavior. I kind of felt like if she ever left him, he’d instantly revert back to his old ways. I would’ve enjoyed it more if Finn had figured out how to “fix” himself (maybe with the help of his fantastic family) and not used Sol as glue to hold himself together.
But, minor quibble aside, this is a great addition to the O’Brien family series, and this author remains one of my favorites. It’s a rare author who can bounce back and forth from paranormal to contemporary, and I admire the hell out of her for being able to pull it off so flawlessly.
Does this book contribute to or help crush the romance stigma?
It’s clean and sober. No rehab needed.
