Overall, I enjoyed this next installment in the Boys of Winter series by SR Grey, but there were a few things that kept me from loving it. I think I just had a hard time connecting with and liking the heroine, Eliza. I understand that she is young, but some of her behavior was just ridiculous. She continually lied and no one ever seemed to call her out on it and to make it worse, they enabled her. She seemed more interested in getting the attention of our hero, Benny, than actually taking care of her daughter and getting her life in order. She did get better towards the end and I really tried to look past her immaturity, but overall I was just not sympathetic to her.
Benny on the other hand really surprised me in a good way. I thought his instalove with Eliza was a bit much, but overall I liked that he was taking responsibility and making positive changes in his life. He readily admitted that he would be battling his demons and past for the rest of his life, and didn't back down or make excuses. He was proactive in his recovery and I really respected that. Was he perfect? Of course not, but he was real and honest. Something that I could not say about our heroine.
Tracy Marks did a fabulous job narrating and I enjoyed her performance. She has a great male voice and I loved her as Benny. She definitely brings a lot of emotion and feeling which helps enhance the story. Even though I wasn't a fan of Eliza, I really enjoy the author's writing and will continue on with the series. I also liked that this book ran concurrently in time with the previous book about Nolan and Lainey. It was fun to get an alternate view of those events.

think Benny might be my favorite of the guys so far. I absolutely loved the resolution at the end of this but, what a ride it was to get there. I immediately loved Eliza, however, I just couldn’t get behind her until all of her secrets came out. I was also surprised Benny was so calm throughout all she did. I definitely wanted more at the end of this story though because it took so long to get where they needed to be.
