This book is suitable for Adult readers!!!
When I saw it on NetGalley, I really liked the summary so when my request was approved I was really happy and I started reading it right away.
“Isn't that what most everyone wants? To be loved by someone so fiercely that you hold their world in your hands, that you were the one to keep it safe.”
As far as the idea goes, the story wasn't all that original but there was something in it that made me really like it. It's really tough to have an original idea these days, but in this case, the characters' personalities compensated for that.
Ronnie Clark is this amazing tattoo that just hates Valentines day. She doesn't do romance and she has put up walls around herself to protect her from future heartbreak. That's pretty much all said in the summary but you don't really know what to expect of Ronnie's character.
I certainly didn't expect this hard-ass woman that had a snarky and sarcastic edge to her. And her bad attitude was one of the many things I loved about her. She was fun to read about and she was playing the tough woman role pretty well but she had her own baggage and she wasn't really dealing with it.
“I can't be this close to you and not touch you”
And then we have Sergeant First Class Kale Emerson. A guy that loves his job, doesn't have a family behind to worry about so he is very invested in his work. He doesn't do romance either but not because he doesn't want to but because he hasn't found the right person and it's just not the time for that.
When you put those to together in a room and you can see the instant connection between them. And it was something very strong and undeniable and as much as Kale wanted to give into it, Ronnie was fighting it that much harder. It was a chase until the arrangement came along and that was the beginning of their relationship.
“I don't do flowers remember? But I want more too”
As I said, as far as the idea goes it wasn't all that original but I really like it. It was fun and entertaining and I just clicked with the characters and the scene..
I give it:
Until the next time,
