Almost making a tragic mistake. Will Freddy and Brett be in time to stop Anne from making her mistake or will the three suffer for it
Retreat From Love was a bit hard to read because of the suffering hero. He was a little too much to handle. Freddy was funny though and Anne was just independent and saucy enough to keep the story from being boring. Even the love scenes were a bit different. Though the happily ever after ending kinda made up for it all. The other four book in this series were very good, while this one just didn’t have the same spark.
