Take two lost souls, mix them up and watch the sparks fly…
I’ve never read a book by Megan Frampton and I’m glad I rectified that mistake. This book flowed nicely and I read it in one afternoon. It’s an easy read and fun.
The heroine, Olivia, has a high opinion of herself—she thinks she knows best and can help out whenever needed. She tends to take this belief she knows best for everyone else to the extremes. It’s a tad off putting at times because she won’t get moved from her ideas. I liked her growth through the story, though and was glad she did have a chance to do so.
Edward has his issues, too. He’s the bastard son and doesn’t think he’s good enough for anyone. He believes, no matter what, that everyone is looking down on him. It got a tad old after a while because I wanted to say, you know, they aren’t all against you. He had chances with Olivia, but was too consumed with his feelings of inadequacy.
Still, the passion between Olivia and Edward sizzled. I couldn’t get enough.
I’m glad I read this book and even though it’s book 2 in the series, I didn’t feel lost. I recommend this for anyone who wants a fun afternoon read.
