I am a Felice Stevens fan, but I haven’t read the first two books in this series. From my experience with this story, I don’t think you have to read them in order to appreciate each one.
As the name of the series would suggest, this is about struggle and overcoming hardship – so you can expect a bit of angst. It’s certainly not overwhelming, but it does play heavily in the story.
Brandon is a bit hard to swallow at times – he comes across as both really brave but sometimes cowardly – and that wishy washy-ness can be frustrating. There are some really amazing “coincidences” that make this a romantic fiction – but are heartwarming in the way that Felice is so good at delivering.
I can’t say I was ever blown away by the chemistry between Brandon and Tash and I wanted them to explore the age gap more than they did. Each spends a lot of time in their own heads and it’s not always pretty there – as a result – though I was so happy for them – I was also a bit tired of their turmoil.
If I’d been in the series since the beginning I’m sure the entrance of the other two brothers into the story would have had more impact – even I could see how happy it was for all of them.
I think the writing was excellent and for fans of the author, the series and angst – this will be something to pick up!
3.5 of 5 stars
Kale Williams is the narrator for the entire series and he does a nice job of handling the emotion and the pacing. He doesn’t do much for differentiating the characters – of which there are many – but that was a minor issue.
I think this is a great way to experience the story and if you can’t read it – this is certainly a great way to go.
