A Vast Improvement But Still.....

Heather Blake really needs a better editor. She has good characters, good stories and good world building she just to work on the smaller details.


As I said before this is a vast improvement from the previous book.
Dillon and Carly's interaction are improved. How Dillon pursues Carly a lot more genuine.
My main problem still lies with EVERYONE telling Carly "that's a good man why did you let him go" and not saying ANYTHING about how they broke up in the first place. I am not a spoiler so I will not say what that is.

Again it is the side characters is were the humor lies and Carla and Delia's relationship is again(for me) the best part of the book.

If you liked the first book this book is an improvement.

First time reader

This was my first book by Heather Blake and it was really nice. An easy read that I could listen to for while needing to do other things. There were a lot of characters so at some points I got a little confused on who was where. The author though makes it easy to catch up.
