My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Aimee Nicole has outdone herself with this one imho. It’s a glorious second chance romance between two older MCs who never forgot each other.
The phrasing of the narrative cleverly covers a period of more than two decades but without relying only on straight up flashbacks but also through contrasting the here and now with events in their teenage years.
There is little angst in this, other than in the events of the past, and I loved that the secondary cast of characters were also strongly fleshed out and acted in a believable fashion.
Lincoln’s ex wife and kids were great, helping to cut down on the need for unnecessary plotting to drive the narrative. There didn’t necessarily need to be any tension and I was very glad Aimee didn’t use the ex wife etc to create it purely for plot points.
Once these two men bumped into each other and fate gave them their second chance, they both went for it at full tilt and the book benefited from it.
Now, that’s not to say there weren’t tensions, there were and, again, they came from realistic fears and worries on the part of both Rush and Lincoln. But they felt organic to the story and there were conversations about them instead of miscommunication!
I really loved this one, the sex scenes are hot but even hotter is the pure love which radiates out from Rush and Lincoln.
