It’s more like 3.5 ⭐️’s, not quite 4 though. There is a very strong storyline here, and the beginning is also strong. However, once you get past the first couple of chapters, something is missing. I didn’t feel much passion between Lachlan and Scarlett, I think they would’ve been better suited as best friends. Lachlan is just so sweet and always understanding, where Scarlett is always on a war path in a way, always expecting the worst. And I guess that’s normal given her history, but it was too much of it. And the chemistry between these two just wasn’t there. And they sounded so much alike when in each of their individual point of view that, couple of times, I didn’t even know whose point of view we were in. Another thing that needs to be noted is that if you love reading steamy scenes in your romance novels, you will not find any of that in here. None of that. Zero. Next book looks to be Scarlett’s little brother’s book. And I can’t say he left an impression on me either, he sounded more like a funny little sister than the player he was portrayed to be throughout the story.
