Review: The beginning of this book was a little slow for me personally, but then all of a sudden I got totally and utterly sucked in. All of the events that propelled the story along kept me utterly enthralled. I read the book in one night, and went through so many emotions. My heart hurt and rejoiced multiple times. I loved the history between Natalie and Luke, and the family bonds between many of the characters.
I’ve read many romances, and it’s wonderful when I find one that can still give me all the feels. I’m thoroughly impressed that this is Ann Penny’s debut! I’d definitely recommend it to my fellow romance readers.
I received an ARC of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
