Delightfully, refreshingly, deliciously different! I loved this book.
Both lead characters are very nice, very loving, very honorable – just very, very good people. They don’t have any deep, dark secrets. Both are honest and up-front about their issues and don’t try to hide those from the other. They actually talk with each other and even more miraculously – they listen to each other. They both have warm, loving, supportive and caring families. Now, I know some of you are groaning and saying – How boring – but it isn’t. It is a very good story.
I think the book is about actually ‘seeing’ another person. We interact with people every day – our boss, our friend, the clerk at the store, etc. but do we actually see them or just the title and what we ‘think’ they are. One of my favorite characters in this book is Griffin, Julian’s younger brother. In most stories, Griffin would be hidden away and kept secret, but Julian doesn’t do that. Julian and Griffin have a really special relationship that says so much about the person that Julian is.
We also have the required villain of the story. He’s out to ruin Julian because Julian is preventing him from getting something that he wants. We even watch the villain grow and evolve – actually to the point where I think he might just be the hero in the next, and final, book in the series. That book should be out in March of next year.
The one thing I missed was seeing more of the Windham cousins. They are always entertaining and I miss them. There really wasn’t much room for them in the story since it took place at a house party, but it would still have been nice to have a visit. Maybe they could have at least shown up at the auction or something.
