I didn’t know this was book 2 in the series when I decided to read it, but I didn’t feel like I was missing anything. (But I will go back and read book 1.) Ethan is rough around the edges at times but he has a lot on his plate and he is trying to do everything at once. But man is he one hot man, single father of 2, cowboy, etc….who wouldn’t want him. Tori is sure sassy and I love that about her.
A heartbreak sure turned Tori’s world upside down and yet she gets a new spark as soon as she meets Ethan. Their “banter” that first day gave her that spark. And she was so funny with her I’d never sleep with you. Ethan is trying to get his divorce finalized…but of course you need some drama there with that.
I LOVED Ethan’s kids, Mila and Cody, his brother Logan and I loved her sister Kat and Brody. They add such a great dynamic to the story. I loved the bond Tori instantly had with the two kids. Logan loved getting in the middle of things, and he always was fun and outspoken.
This book did a great job of them taking things slow, Tori and Ethan building up that friendship first. While things were not always easy between them the chemistry was off the charts. Without giving anything away, Tori and the spider is totally me…. so that had me cracking up and freaking out with her all at once.
Told in dual POV the author did a great job giving both of these characters voices and loving personalities. You feel the depth of their feelings and also their fear. And they both have this deep love for others and it really comes across the pages.
