First, I want to acknowledge that the author named a character Maisey in this story and I just love that. If you’re not in the know, this author and the author Maisey Yates are friends and I think it’s very sweet that their friendship gets a nod in the form of the hero’s grandma.
As for the rest of this story? Amazing. There is definite chemistry between Shane and Cora from the very beginning. I’ve been extremely lucky that I’ve read so many stories with warm-fuzzy inducing characters lately. It’s my favorite thing! These two gave it to me in spades. Plus, Shane has a great relationship with Cora’s son. Not easy and light, but rocky and full of it’s ups and downs while they figured out their roles.
Cora did drive me batty with her discipline (or lack thereof) of her son, Micah. Yet I’ve never been in her situation so I tried very hard not to judge. Not only was Cora in an abusive marriage for many years, but Micah witnessed so much in that time and has not fully learned to cope. I was immensely happy that Cora’s parenting decisions were questioned a bit (by herself) later in the story since she didn’t seem to know how to say no to Micah.
Seriously, Shane has the most patience of any man in the world ever. Not only was he great at taking a step back from Cora when she needed him to, he also kept his family going regardless of the push back he got so often. He was extremely worried about his mom and her choice of beaus yet was able to keep his temper reigned in…for the most part.
This series has been a bit all over the map for me. I’m really excited about the addition of the Taylor family though. They all seem to have such interesting stories that are just waiting to be told.
