I really liked this one, the drama and angst levels were so much more manageable compared to book one in the series.
I absolutely adored Gabe, he was perfect for Tristan, supportive without being patronising and willing to work with his short term memory issues.
The email correspondence was a clever way of getting the relationship development needed without the difficulties involved with Tristan’s disability.
Shane also was much improved in this one while Noel had a brief period of being a dick but it was good to see them still together and thriving.
The sex was also lovingly crafted as Gabe found ways for Tristan to keep the feelings of their love making even when he couldn’t find the memory.
I liked the way the medical trial was handled too with encouraging development not a miraculous recovery and how Gabe was giving Tristan hope for the future no matter what happened.
There’s an awful lot of angsty in this one, it just racks up and up until you reach a point where you wonder how much more one guy can take. . . and then another tonne is dropped.
However, in spite of all the angsty, this book isn’t an uncomfortable read, it has lots of sweet romance at the heart of it alongside some smoking smexy times and it has a lovely ending which feels like a genuine start of something pure and true.
Loved this one, it had all the things I’ve come to expect from Lucy Lennox and this series – two well definitely MCs, a lot of humour, low angst and lots of hot sex.
There’s a couple of funny side plots involving the crazy Marian senior members, the President’s politician father and a possible Vegas wedding, some sex toys and an order of homophobic preachers to keep things ticking along.
Another gorgeous cover to add to the rest of the almost rainbow. I’m hoping we get Simone’s story too and round out the Marian siblings, plus perhaps a step back in time to Pete and Ginger’s courtship. I love this family and I want more of their stories please.
I have rated this as it was okay because the quality of the writing is absolutely fine, the piece evokes Victorian era London well but unfortunately, the subject matter is simply not for me.
I’ve got seven chapters in and nothing really cohesive has happened within the book, it’s like a series of vignettes about different people and, while I’m sure it’ll eventually come together, the subject matter isn’t interesting enough to me to want to continue reading it.
