I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
This was a clean sweet romance that lived up to the standard set by the first book. The romance followed a lust to love path that was believable and easy to follow.
The best part of this book is the dialogue. It is witty and easy. It reads like people actually talk, and while humourous, also showcases the love the characters have for each other.
Just like the first book, my favourite character was Booker. He has such a strong personality that his character stands out from the rest. While he isn’t portayed in the best light in this book, he still comes across as real and heroic. I can’t wait for his book, which I assume the third book will be about. I even think I can guess who the love interest will be, based on a few hints and scenes from this book.
The only part I didn’t enjoy was the slight time warp in the middle of the book. I’m not quite sure how much time the book spanned, but it seemed a little off. Based on what happened, my understanding of the length is both too long and too short, depending on which plot points I consider.
Overall, this was a sweet read that I thoroughly enjoyed. While Seth and Maggie’s relationship still seems a bit too much, and the living arrangements have only gotten more convoluted, the story itself was quite fun. It is heavy on humour and action, and there is never a dull moment. I can’t wait for the next one.
