Honesty time right? I don’t know if I liked it, but I don’t think I didn’t like it. I mean, the sex scenes were great, they were hot. That part was good.  The emotions that were described though, seemed lacking to me.  I don’t know, I finished the book, I didn’t DNF it so that says something right?

I don’t think I’m gonna read any more in this series.

They didn’t seem to really know each other that well. Only what they remember from 17 years earlier.  They kept referencing the past when they were 13 years old as if it was some major turning point in their lives.  I didn’t see it.  Not to mention A LOT can happen in 17 years, people change. I am not the same person I was that long ago. (Yes, I am that old)

It was hard for me to develop a connection to the Noah and Cooper.  They seemed so closed off emotionally.   Like they didn’t share too much of their feelings with each other.  They didn’t really open up to each other unless it was about their physical attraction.  And I need more than physicality.  Maybe that’s what the author was going for, if so, not my kind of book I guess.
