I love, love, loved the heroine, Des, in this story. She spoke her mind (not in a mean way), went for what she wanted, treated everyone with respect, was extremely honest and loyal. As for our hero, Logan, of course he was wonderful…we know that from meeting him in book one. But the chip on his shoulder was bigger than the whole state of Oklahoma.

I enjoyed how much Des understood why Logan did certain things and would call him on it, but she still wouldn’t stand for it. I’m not sure how much that sentence makes sense, but I understand what I mean, haha.  Logan was definitely an alpha male, maybe a bit too much at times. But as the reader there are things you are privy to that the hero is not so I tried to see things from his point of view when his jealousy would seem a bit much.  Plus, I was glad that he even realized when he went overboard and had no qualms about apologizing.

I’m sure the way things ran on this “movie set” were nothing like real life. I was okay with that because it wasn’t too unbelievable and it moved the storyline. And what do I know anyway? I don’t work in movies. I just find it hard to believe they would choose the middle of summer to film in such a place, although I know things like that do happen if it’s when they can get the lighting or mood they need.

I’m glad I decided to read this series; it has definitely gotten me excited about Jaci Burton’s writing again.



About Cheri

I'm the mom of two boys and wife to my high school sweetheart. Our oldest, Josh, is 24 and living at home while working. He just finished trade school for media arts and is looking for a job that will be a career so he can get out on his own. In the meantime he's got a steady job with benefits. Our youngest, Griffin, is 20 and in the Army. He just got married so I have also gained a daughter. Unfortunately, he is stationed in Washington so they're across the country from us. I was lucky enough to have the option of leaving the work force a few years ago, but recently went back part-time to learn a new trade working at a small family owned coffee shop.
