Addy is such a confusing heroine to me.  In so many ways she is strong and independent.  I love a heroine that owns her sexuality without shame or remorse.  It’s refreshing to read about a woman who enjoys sex for the sake of sex.  On the other hand, she is a bit too stubborn.  There’s even a part of the story where the hero says, “We’ve beaten that horse to death.”  Those were the exact words I was thinking at that point.  I get it!  You don’t want to give up your independence!  Get over it! 

Jake is a saint.  The patience he has for Addy’s neurotic tendencies is going above and beyond.  From the beginning he is sweet and sexy, but I fell hard when he showed up at the bridal shop.  That whole scene was a big bowl of warm-fuzzies.  He is almost as stubborn as Addy, but he has his very wise father there to give him stellar advice.  Jake is just like a white knight riding in to save the day, yet he does the swooping in more like a ninja so as not to spook Addy.  He found a way to be there to catch her if she falls without making it obvious that’s what he’s doing.

The push/pull that goes on in Addy’s mind in the last third of the book is wonderful.  Although this is where a lot of my frustration with her comes into play, it’s where as the reader we see that at least she realizes she’s being irrational.  There’s a scene played out on Pirate’s Peak that is just golden and heart-breaking and gut-wrenching.  It helped me to understand her so much more.

This has been one of my favorite Love in Bloom books in a while.  I absolutely loved Tru Blue (which is not part of this series) and now this one, I feel Melissa Foster is getting her groove back.  I always enjoy her books, this just had a little something more.

About Cheri

I'm the mom of two boys and wife to my high school sweetheart. Our oldest, Josh, is 23 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 19 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. Since that time I've been slowly trying to get our house in order and catching up on a lot of reading.
