Hooked. I was totally hooked from the start. I was captivated from the beginning all the way to the end. Again Rachel Gibson does not disappoint. As a huge fan of all her books I am always a bit worried I will come across a new novel of hers and be let down, however clearly this was not the case.
We are presented with Blake Junger, brother of Beau Junger, whom we met in the previous book, who from the first moment appeared caught my attention and my desire to know his story. He has a very easy going, charming and loveable characterization about him. His affection and dialogues with Charlotte was so genuine and adorable. The relationship between himself and Natalie Cooper is something else. The connection is so realistic and stunning from the beginning. I loved that Natalie was not head over heels with him from the go and had a strong stance with Blake which I admired. She is a strong dominant character, however like everyone, wants a little loving.
The minor characters we see are all just amazing and usually I get pretty bored and want to skip pages when these characters come into view, however I can say for the very first time, I loved them all. Nothing was dragged out, and there was honestly from the beginning. No clichés and definitely no dragging.
Rachel Gibson has clearly out done herself again. There are so many positive things to say about this book, and I can highly recommend it to anyone! I will most certainly read this many times this year as Blake and Natalie are by far my favorite couple this year.
