My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Gawd this book is hot and sensual and steamy and erotic and all the other words you associate with a brilliantly crafted sexual romance.
It’s also full of emotions and actual conversations and relatively low angst and a minor hiccup of misunderstanding which, for me anyway, didn’t work quite so well as the stumbling block to eternal happiness.
However, the resolution of said stumbling block was executed perfectly and without a load of unnecessary drama and I loved how Shane owned up to his fears and his deliberately destructive reaction.
There’s ancient hurts being healed, there’s an old time enemies to lovers and there’s some of the most beautifully written expressions of love I’ve read in a while.
This book, while it’s hot enough to melt the polar ice caps, also has so much romantic love running alongside it, that it makes reading it an absolute joy.
