“Happily ever after doesn’t come easy. But for love, it’s always worth the fight.”
100% spoiler-free review!
Ok, I know a lot of you may have read the official blurb and all but I really don’t want to say anything about the plot here in terms of what this book is about. If you haven’t read book #1, Down To You, then you should absolutely read it first because this book is a direct continuation of that story. If you HAVE read book #1, then all you need to know is that the story line we were left off with continues in this book, develops, branches out and concludes happily.
There is a big twist though! Yup, another twist! An exciting one!! *grins* Teeheehee. I really liked it! Aaaaand that twist leads on into an awesome little tid-bit that we get at the end of the book that leads right into a third book!! Yes, a third book! *happy dance* I’m quite excited to see how it all plays out! But you should know that this book has a resolved, happy ending. No cliffhanger. So your hearts can rest easy.
Just like with the first book, this one has clear cut, alternating POVs giving you the whole story while fully immersing you in the characters’ thoughts and actions. Its fun too because you never feel like you’re missing out on a part of the story even when it branches off temporarily into separate story lines.
K, in the interest of keeping this spoiler free, I’m just going to never mention the hero’s name. Lol. Feels a little weird, but I think its the right thing to do 😛
But yeah, my favorite Davenport is back in full yummilicious, panty-melting swing. Seriously. The things that man SAYS just make my heart race! He’s thoughtful and sweet but with just enough bad and good boy in him to keep things interesting! Haha, Olivia’s best friend says it best:
“And just as I suspected. I’ve been worrying my ass off and you’ve been having multiple orgasms at the head of a Greek god’s penis. Figures.”
In this book, he asks for trust and, given some of the things Olivia knows about him, its a bit of a leap of faith. She has trust issues too given her past but she trusts him with her life and her heart and its up to him to prove himself worthy of it.
“Can you trust me? Please! I know I’ve not given you many reasons to, but this one time, just go with your heart. I promise you, promise you, I won’t let you down.”
…I want to be worth the risk. I want her to finally fall for the right guy.
The plot was fun and exciting, the sex was hot, the banter made me laugh out loud… there was a blend of kidnappings, mafia deals, shootouts on the one hand and tender, hot, sweet moments on the other. It didn’t lodge my heart in my throat at anytime, and in that way was almost a little just fun and relaxed. Basically, it was perfect for my Saturday afternoon 🙂
“Wrapped up in him, in his bad boy ways and his good guy heart, is my whole world. Somehow, while I wasn’t looking, I fell. And I fell hard.
For my soul mate. For the love of my life. For my hero.
