My rating: 4 of 5 gargoyles
Sometimes I think I’m just too easy to please, but on the whole, I really liked this book by Ms. Collins.
I appreciated the back-story/prior engagement of Nora and Freddie. I felt it gave their reasons for not being together more umph even as they underwent the sham engagement to get closer to the Lords of Anarchy who might’ve been responsible for Nora’s brother’s death. The one thing I didn’t care for was the fact that Nora hadn’t told Freddie the real reason (back many years ago) for ending their original engagement. I get why she couldn’t do it in the present, but back then? Yeah…had a few issues with that.
The romance developed nicely and I have to admit in the latter half of the book, I just kept wanting to turn pages to find out just who (and why) Nora’s brother was killed. It was always a given NOra and Freddie would get together. They deserved their HEA though by the end, definitely.
The secondary cast was interesting and I really look forward to getting to see Nora’s friends hook up. There were definitely some sparks flying between the secondary cast members.
