“Not happening,” he said, his voice low, terse. He was angry, but not at any of his brothers. At himself. He’d chosen a path and one by one they had followed him. His path had led straight to hell. “We don’t have time to argue. We knew walking into this it was a trap. Nothing has changed.”
Well, this book is not happening for me. I accidentally stumbled upon the last book in a series (again) and I tried, I really tried to like it.
Viktor, comes to the village of Sea Haven, and his arrival heralds a huge change – and imminent danger – for Blythe Daniels as well as the other residents of the community, including the Drake sisters.
Blythe met Victor while he was uncover tracking her step-father, a pedophile. They enjoyed a brief but happy courtship and were soon married. After killing her stepfather, Viktor had to disappear, however he left detailed instructions on how to get in touch with him. Unfortunately Blythe never receives his letter and thinks she has been forsaken.
After a five year separation with no contract, they meet again while Viktor is undercover. Viktor is ready to reclaim his wife. Blythe after being deserted and spending so much time alone is not ready to fall back into Viktor’s arms especially when she realizes he returned for a job, not her, plus he expects her to accept not only him, but his adopted family.
The book didn’t do anything for me except for some *cough* interesting *cough* scenes.
Good bits: the novels seem to have quite a following and some people really liked them
Bad bits: cast of characters is huge. Almost half the book is spent describing horrific child abuse and rape. The author in the past has said that she is trying to bring “These issues” and women’s issues to light but this is over the top. A romantic suspense novel is not the appropriate place for her to explore these issues.
And I really don’t know what women get off on men calling them Babe and Baby all the time.
