From the moment Bill (fem) was introduced in Loving Lydia I was hooked. I wanted to know more about her, who she really was, what her life was about. And it was told beautifully in this story.
Bill is a 24 year-old virgin who was raised by her 5 brothers. She’s also a sheriff who loves her job and she’s very free spirited. Even though she throws off this bad ass persona she has a loving heart that is easily broken. She’s so innocent and naive in some ways, it’s truly adorable.
When Michael comes into the picture he gets her revved up like nobody’s business. She goes to his little sister, Kate who’s a doctor, to ask about the first time for a woman. Bill wanted to know if it would hurt or be as messy as the stories she heard her brother’s talk about when she was growing up. She is truly a sweetheart and I loved reading about her. I loved the fact that she likes to run, turned her basement into a gym that everyone uses and has two very protective German Shepherds, Ralph and Bruno.
Michael works for the British government and when people ask him what he does for them he claims to be a paper pusher. He’s really in Special Forces and goes on multiple missions to Afghanistan undercover to infiltrate terrorist groups and pass along information he uncovers back to his unit. From the moment he set eyes on Bill he wanted her and everyone else knew it to. It got very frustrating and irritating for him when not only her brothers and cousins but his little sister too, told him to stay away from her. They told him she had a fragile heart and wasn't as tough or hard as she pretended to be. He didn't listen and wound up breaking her heart. It took him a while to realize his mistake and when he got home from his last mission he did what he could to get her back and apologize to her for pushing her away when she told him she loved him.
This is a 4.5 Top Pick! Great Story, Great Series.
