Book provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I expected this to be tried and true along the lines of a Harlequin Presents and for a while I wasn’t particularly surprised at it. But the ending. Oh, the ending was absolutely incredible. I don’t think I’ve seen a gesture like Knox’s in a book before and I absolutely, totally, fell in love with him in the end.
Chloe – She’s who she is and makes no bones about the fact that she’s a reporter. Knox proposes to her KNOWING she’s a reporter and she never hides the fact that she’s out to find a good story, and if the marriage helps her so be it. Yes, she’s attracted to him, but she’s up front that she’ll report if she finds a story. Knox knows that, even providing her with files so she sees he’s being upfront with her too. And when she finds her story….wow. I love love LOVE what she does with it.
Knox – A bit standoffish and aggravating with his whole never intend to fall in love thing, but that’s part of this kind of novel. I liked that he was an honest man, even as a politician. He was wealthy, but also didn’t hesitate to wear jeans and a t-shirt to be comfortable.
There were lovely secondary characters who didn’t overshadow the story (campaign manager hopefully will one day get a story, and Knox’s mom was such a gracious woman for the most part).
The romance moves along at a very nice pace and some of Knox’s gestures were fantastic…I loved the garden plants he sends Chloe when her job changes after their marriage. Overall, this was just a very enjoyable read.
And then there’s the ending. Wow. I absolutely (yes, I said this earlier) LOVED the ending and what Knox and Chloe do for each other. Such love…
Check out this book. You won’t be sorry.
