One Line: Brody is the best!
In My Opinion: Add to cart!
I’m always wary of reading a book right in the middle of a series, even if it’s a companion series. Sometimes the author is able to fully separate the stories so that I don’t feel like I’m missing anything, but other times it doesn’t work. Thankfully, it worked it here. There’s nothing all that exceptional about the story overall, but it was still an entertaining read nonetheless. Kat and Brody knew each other from high school, sort of, and now Kat is back in town to help Brody’s brother and also to show Brody the person she’s become and work out her feelings for him. The book is filled with plenty of fun, sexy times mixed with a good sense of family values and love.
I really loved Brody. He’s one of those genuinely good guys. He takes care of his family, he’s on point with his career and what he’s passionate about, and he’s a guy who loves fiercely and isn’t afraid of commitment. Once he realized Kat was it for him, he didn’t deny it. He was patient with Kat and did his best to show her that he was worth her giving her heart to.
I’m very interested in checking out the rest of the series. The other couples are well established by the time this Brody and Kat’s story takes place, and I really liked each couple. I saw enough of them in this book to spark my interest and I’m curious as to how each of them fell in love. This is my first experience with this author, but so far so good.
