The greatest adventure is what lies ahead.
Today and tomorrow are yet to be said.
The chances, the changes are all yours to make.
The mold of your life is in your hands to break.

Another really enjoyable case solved with Kate. this time she goes way out and up in to the pipeline and works for the company that her whole being hates. Amazing scenery and revelations.
She is such a fantastic character. Strong, independent, a happy loner and never cowers who she is. I love her and can't wait for the next book.
Loved this audiobook, the story and narration were wonderful. This is the perfect little fun romance I smiled and laughed out loud embarrassing myself more than normal.
Love and hate in the work place. Josh is a wonderful jerk-ish man with issues, a sharp edged personality, a super hot body, a nightmarish family drama-rama and patience. Lucy is a short little spitfire of personality, brains and drive. She is brutally honest when many would shy away, she is loyal, bold and unwavering in her goals. Two fantastic people who hate each other and we all now how close love is to hate. < wink >
The sexual tension is so hot it made my headphones sizzle and smoke. The author dragged the lusting out there is no insta sex/love. It was frustraiting in all the right ways.
I will be adding this author to my authors to watch list. I need more like this.
Beautiful, breathtaking prose, romantic, succulent foods, vivid scenery, dreamy settings, realistic lovable characters that are easily connected with and so many life awakening quotable moments. The main characters are mature, well lived, full of experiences and yet full of wonder. Oh it's fantastic. I adore this author's style. This is the second book I've read from her, the first being The Little Paris Bookshop. I loved that one but this one held on to my heart a bit more and never let go, so far it's my favorite. Good luck topping this one Ms. Banks.
Honesty is a big important point in a relationship for me and this chick couldn't do it.
The story was good the characters were great except the female MC Pru. What a soggy piece of bread she was. Wishy washy, I'll do tomorrow what I should do today type. She played with other people's lives, put herself in someones life in a dishonest way and just kept making excuses not to be upfront and honest. Sure she was giving, and kind and gave up nearly everything to make up for her parents crime. But when it came to telling one man, one thing, she got all selfish ? Pffiiitt ! She blamed on her needy body. Whatever. She killed a star on the rating for me.
The rest of the cast were excellent varied people with quirky traits. I look forward to more from them, Jake most of all. Jake is a wheeling, hard body, with a huge thick streak of honor.
4.5 I want to kill the MC stars ! Oh she was such a bloody thorn, nasty words, viscous reactions, and heartless dumping. Oh I suffered, my poor heart broke and then broke some more. Ms. Maas is a wicked beast ! I had a seriously messed up night of sleep, whiplashed heart, book hangover. oh I'm a suffering reader here. I don't even drink alcohol but I'd suggest having a strong one at hand when reading or a warm puppy to cuddle to blues away.
I am taking a few days off this series to recover. Book 3 is loaded and waiting. Be gentle with me Ms. Maas. I am a fragile beastie :D
