Although I enjoyed the first book in this series, this book was better.  There were so many emotions through this story and it totally broke my heart.  As I mentioned in my review of So Wrong It Must Be Right, Kayla was actually my favorite character.  I liked her from the start and felt for her and how she was treated by her family.

What I didn’t expect was the treatment Liam gets from his family.  Without giving anything away, I must say that things that seemed minor in the beginning really became significant as this story went along.  Like Kayla, I was furious with Liam’s family once I realized how deep their dependency went and how shallow their support was. His mother is actually a vile person that I don’t understand in any way, shape, or form.  Even after the reader gets a “reason” for her actions.

The chemistry between Liam and Kayla was not just hot, it was warm.  As in, lots and lots of warm-fuzzies!  I love it and Liam made me feel like I was wrapped in a warm blanket.  The way he, more than once, had to turn around from what he was doing to go back and give Kayla a kiss…swoon-worthy.

I like the previous two books I read by Nicole Helm, but now I’m starting to get excited about her books.  And I’m beyond happy that I have the next book in the A Mile High Romance series already waiting on my Kindle.

4 stars
