We are finally getting to see Zack's story, not just snippets or glimpses through the eyes of those closest to him. I didn't realize how badly I was wanting Zack to find his happy until I started reading. It's been months since I read the previous book, but it only took the very first words out of Zack's mouth to suck me right back in.
Zack and Jillian have a little bit of a sordid history. One regretful 'morning after' and a truck load of baggage is more like it. There is no denying the pent up sexual tension between these two. Zack is hesitant to follow through on his feelings for Jillian because he is no longer only able to think about himself, he has a son that he's just starting to build a solid relationship with. Jillian is hesitant for different reasons, namely a shitty ex-husband.
It was so fun watching these two find their footing. And the fact that Jillian not only falls for Zack, she falls for his young son just as quickly is the sweetest part. And she's fiercely protective of him.
This book was everything I've come to love about a Kristen Proby novel, yet still unpredictable. This lady can write a sassy, strong minded, loyal heroine with the best of them. But I think what sets her apart from many authors is her alpha men. She sure knows how to swoon the pants off her readers (that doesn't sound right, but just go with it)through these naughty as hell, down right sinful, dirty talking men.
I'm a loyal Kristen fan, and I don't see that changing.
