I'm a bit perplexed on how to rate this one. I liked it, but I didn't LOVE it.


There wasn't anything wrong with it per se. It just felt REALLY LONG. Both characters were OK. Connor was fine and never looked at another woman after getting back with Jaxxon. But it took WAY too long for him to come to terms with his feelings, and then it wasn't even him that figured it out on his own. It took a lecture from his best friend to get his ass in gear. I kind of think he would probably still be wallowing if it wasn't for Dane. Jaxxon was a strong heroine, but sometimes I felt she came across as too in your face. I don't like doormat heroines but I do like them to at least come across somewhat vulnerable, and I never felt that with Jaxxon.

Unfortunately because we never really get to see the previous history between these two, I never felt that great of a connection between them. I'm suppose to believe they were both pining away for each other, but in the 8 years Connor never once thought to pick up a phone or anything? Then all of a sudden he sees her in a magazine and is all "SHE'S MINE" Nope, sorry, didn't buy it.

I think maybe had the author took out some of the filler stuff and maybe gave us a peek at their history this one might have worked better for me. I don't know...like I said, it was OK. I did think the side characters were interesting and pretty well developed though...
