Loved it from beginning to end!
I won't tell a lie, I love a hot, sizzling romance. I was not disappointed! Violet and Richard's story was funny, intriguing, romantic with plenty of steam! Grace Callaway is one of my favorite authors. I like that her heroines are spirited with plenty of backbone, and her heroes are wounded in some way though strong with plenty of hotness thrown in!
Loved this installment just as much as the others! Grace has such a way to make each Kent an individual, despite the large family. I made the mistake of reading the reviews before the book so I was expecting a “childish” Violet, however her innocence is refreshing! She has such a positive will live life to the fullest and that aspect was definitely appreciated. I connected with this one a lot because I have my own Carlisle to love life with. I can’t wait to read Polly’s story.
This book was so drawn out I had trouble finishing it. Worse than that, the way Violet spoke was ridiculous to me. I kept picturing her as a child throughout the entire book, that’s not ideal for this type of book. Did she not learn any mature curse words growing up? I really liked the first book I read of yours, so I plan to try another, but lord I hope there’s not another character made to speak like Violet was.
