A Wonderful Book
I really enjoyed reading this book. Dex Remington is one of the nation's top PC game developers. Ellie Parker is a person from his past, when they were both still in school. They have come back together again by chance. There is lots of chemistry between them, but she has lots of issues with trust stemming from her time in the system. This book brings to light some of the issues that we have in our foster system, and the lasting effects that they can have on those children, even into their adulthood. Even though this is a serious issue, it does not make this book all sad, unstead it is a very positive book, as Dex is there to help her through her issues. Yes, Dex is not just a sexy man, he is a wonderful man. Melissa Foster did an outstanding job writing this book. Then, the narrator of it is B.J Harrison, who is one of the best in his field. He does such a great job. I never get confused with him narrating. You can always tell which character is talking. I highly recommend this book, and audiobook.
Best of Friends to lovers
WOW! Dexy & Ellie...What an awesome story of friends to lovers! They are the best! And who better than Melissa & BJ to bring it to you!
Ellie was in foster care throughout her life. She met Dex while she was living through the worst home. Dex helped her deal with life as a young teen. While Dex helped Ellie, she also helped him deal with the awkwardness of his own teen years.
But Ellie hurt Dex. After years of secretly loving her, he tells her and then she disappears from his life. For 4 years, he worked and got through the lose of losing Ellis in his life, only to bump into her at his favorite bar in NYC. It was again kismet because while she had a place set up to stay, nothing was turning out right. Again, she ends up at Dex's place. They very soon realize that their feelings for each other havent faded, but now that they are living together, they intensify.
It takes time and working through old pains to get to the point where they can move forward with a life together. But, after a trip down memory lane, and a run-in with an Ex, Dex and Ellie are finally able to move ahead.
Listening to this book after reading it twice still gave it a whole new feeling. Thank you, again, BJ Harrison for another great narration!
