I’m so excited about this new series Christy Pastore has created! Not only did she create women who were strong, smart and independent, but allowed for plenty of growth in their lives. In addition to these women, she offers us several very sexy, robust men. The combination is explosive!
There were so many fabulous nuances to this story; so many things that connected the characters and their stories to one another. It had drama, mystique, steaminess and lots and lots of fun. The women in the story were each so very different and each overcoming adversity while trying to find their way. Each driven by something different: pride, greed, career, the need for independence and the need to escape something painful. Something that was driving them, moving them forward and at some point they realized they couldn’t do it completely on their own… Or at least it wasn’t worth doing it all alone.
I think what I love most about this book was that although the women had these wonderful men in their lives they didn’t need them. Instead they served as a guide to them and supported them like any good man does but the women were not completely dependent on them. Throughout the story they discovered their own strengths. Along with the all of this, there were twists, turns and excitement I never expected!
Can we just talk about the guys for a minute please!?!? Holy swoontastic! The men of this book certainly made the top of my book boyfriend list! They were funny, strong and sexy giving exactly what their women needed even when the women didn’t know they needed it. Every time I thought I had a crush on one, another one came along and would do something fabulous. I couldn’t decide who was going to be my book boyfriend of the story. They were all so different… all so perfect I don’t know how Pastore managed that. And a Welsh accent? Seriously Christy! You’re killing me!!!
Since each woman’s story is told separately, even though they intertwined at times, it’s hard for me to describe the plot. There were so many things happening and it flowed so beautifully that there was a lot going on and but it never felt confusing going from person to person, point of view to point of view.
Pastore’s writing was so clean and so bold it was a true pleasure to read this book! I was so impressed with the way she was able to connect the women’s stories. It was like she used the environment as an extra character to serve as a vessel connecting each woman and each story. It was remarkably clever.
Consequently this was definitely a five-star read for me This is definitely a five-star read for me!!! When I finish the book all I could think was “no!” I need the next book now! Grab yourself a North ball Brandy, snuggle in with this book and hope for a soul moving storm to roll through…
