Jonathan Lyons has loved adventures since he was young. So he can’t resists when an opportunity arises. When his mentor dies, he left something for Jonathan to track down. Jonathan is thrilled, but he has to work together with his mentor’s daughter Violet. She is also his ex-girlfriend. The two parted on bad terms. Despite that, Jonathan still yearns for and loves Violet. When he reappears in her life, will they be able to work everything out or will they go back to being two mere strangers?
This book was enjoyable even though I already knew how it was going to end. The storyline isn’t bad, but I felt something was missing while I read it. When I finished it, it didn’t leave a strong impression like I expected. The author did a great job at grabbing my attention in the beginning. But as I got halfway through the book, I knew how it was going to end. The ending was too predictable for me. But it’s a good story nonetheless.
Violet has always been independent. Her father is never home. Her mother has her own problems and is too busy to take care of her. She always wanted a family, so when she has an opportunity she wants to grab it. I understood where she was coming from, but she doesn’t consider Jonathan’s feelings. Starting a family so young is not an easy thing. I’m not saying that it is impossible, but they have their whole life ahead of them. So it’s understandable that Jonathan doesn’t want to settle so early.
I thought that they would work something out if they would just talk to each other properly. Violet asks Jonathan to start a family with her, but doesn’t tell him the real reason. If he knew the real reason why she asked him then I think that he would have gone with her. Miscommunication is really bad. I experienced that first hand. So it’s sad when their relationship falls apart. It’s a good thing that they overcome whatever was in their past and move on together. They create a new life for themselves.
Their romance is sweet. Even though Jonathan is with many other women his heart has always belonged to Violet. It’s the same with Violet even though she doesn’t want to admit it. Readers have two lovers reunited at the end. That is something I really like to read about. I am a big fan of second chance romances, so this book lived up to that for me and it was a good read.
Since I haven’t read any of the books before this one, I am very curious about Jonathan’s ‘brothers’ stories. I would love to read about their stories when I get a chance.
