➦Good book! Unfortunately, just like with the first book in this series, I couldn’t quite connect with the characters all the way. I loved Gus, the hero. I like the heroine. But I just never quite fell in love with them as a couple.
➦May be it was the whole “dead ex” thing. Ok, she wasn’t his ex but he was deeply in love with her. Normally stuff like this wouldn’t bother me but I felt like the bringing up of Bright Side was constant and kept taking away from the romance. At least for me… There was just… too much. I wanted to move on faster.
➦Speaking of faster. I am a fan of slow burn. But it has to be done in a way that doesn’t make me want to fast forward through pages and pages. Descriptions of lives of secondary characters? Not a fan of. Like, I don’t really care about how your friends who you see once a year are doing: where they work, what they plan to do in the future. This bear is running out of patience.
➦I did, for the most part, enjoy Gus’ journey of healing and acceptance. I just wished he would throw a bone to the heroine once in a while. This slow burn was slow. Just when I think the tho main characters will be thrown in a situation where they will get some sharing to do (or at the very least spending time together) the story takes a detour somewhere. gurr T.T This one wasn’t entirely for me.
