Red's Rating: 5 Very Satisfying Stars
Emily Garret is a free spirit by choice, she's traveled the world, and indulged in a lot of pleasure's that most are too scared to get close to. She is damn proud of all she has done, however, her family is not, they've already lost a lot, and can't bring themselves to accept her lifestyle choices and reckless behavior. They want her to embrace a more acceptable lifestyle like going to college, getting an education, and tying herself to a desk for the rest of her life, but Emily just isn't that type of girl. It hurts knowing she is a disappointment to them, but taking on a life that they would like for her just isn't something she is willing to do, and the mere idea of it sends her on a little bender. Her night starts out to be a little harmless fun, but soon takes a dangerous turn, one that lands her injured and in need of rescuing... and the minute her hero waltzes into her life it changes the path of the both of their lives.
The minute Reece Montgomery waltzes into the coffee shop and sees the buxom blonde barista behind the counter he is intrigued with her, she is someone he normally wouldn't give a second look to, but there is just something about her that begs for his attention. Seeing her every morning soon becomes part of his routine, but he has yet worked up the nerve to talk to her, let alone find it in himself to ask her on a date. He lives a fairly sheltered life these days, and is no where near ready for a relationship or even dating for that matter, but walking away from her is just to hard to do...
As soon as I read the synopsis for this book I knew it was one I HAD to read, I had previously met some of the characters in Ms. Gibson's Written On My Heart, and I have desperately wanted to return to them and see what she had in store for free spirited Emily... and I am happy to report that I loved what I found! The chemistry between Emily and Reece was electric, each encounter they shared was fueled with power and intensity, and several of those times I swear I could literally feels the sparks between them jumping off my screen!! The story line was engaging, passionate, thought provoking, and packed with so much raw emotion that it took my breath away! It's one of those reads that will hit you deep, and have you feeling the intensity of every word printed on the page, linger in your thoughts long after the last page is turned!! I highly recommend you give this read a try, it is sure to take you on one truly exceptional literary escape, and leave you completely satisfied!!
