That being said, I fell in love with this story. Her characters and her style of writing are very well rounded, and this story of Reyna is beautifully told. While it’s a contemporary romance, and the characters are closer to their thirties, for Reyna it’s almost a coming of age, and the growth in her throughout the book is a wonderful thing to see. She goes from being a guilt-ridden, sullen woman to a focused, determined one. From self-loathing to self-respecting.
The story includes great secondary characters: Marisa, Liam, Hayden, Frank -who is my favorite, Alistair and of course her mom Dr. Miller. The book is in a present/past format which I LOVE because it helps round of the picture of why Reyna is the way she is.
Overall, this is an incredibly touching story of a woman trying to come to grips with the guilt of her past and learn that it’s ok to be happy, and it’s ok to love and be loved.
I was told that this book is part of her London Lover’s series, but having never read them, I don’t feel like I was missing anything. I do believe that this book is able to be read as a stand-alone. If you are looking for a feel-good story, this is one for you.
A: I’m pretty sure I’ll be continuing on this London path for a couple more stories. Without revealing any spoilers, I’m really hoping readers will be interested in one of the characters’
HEA. I’d love to write his story next. And then…finally, Frank and Beans. 🙂
