Synopsis of the book:

Kaitlyn Reed and Steven Braden have always had a similar philosophy of life: when the going gets tough, they get going–out of town and away from the problem. Now they are both back in Last Chance, New Mexico, and trying to start over. Kaitlyn is working to reestablish a relationship with the seven-year-old daughter she left behind six months earlier. Steven is trying to prove to his family that he is not the irresponsible charmer they have always known him to be. As Kaitlyn and Steven find themselves drawn to one another, one big question keeps getting in the way: How will they learn to trust each other when they don’t even trust themselves?

My review:

I was skeptical about the idea of liking this story because the Kaitlyn and Steven I’d met in the previous books were not the most likable people. Imagine my surprise when their story actually became my favorite one of the series so far. 🙂

I think the depths of pain that both had to overcome was what pulled me into their love story. They represented human weakness and the ability of anyone to grow and become better people. I just loved how their relationship grew into something that would see them growing old together.

Of course there were characters from the previous books that I was happy to reconnect with.

What I enjoyed most about this book

The growth of Kaitlyn and Steven’s characters into a great love story.

What I didn’t like about this book:

There were a few secondary characters that I wanted to smack for being mean to Kaitlyn and Steven.

Rating 5 out of 5 stars

Would I recommend this book to others? Yes. It was a surprise that this story worked its way to being my favorite of the series so far. If you like to see good character growth, this one is for you. This is the third book in the series. It can be read as a standalone, but knowing the stories of Kaitlyn and Steven’s brothers enriches this one.
