I enjoyed most aspects of this story. Eli Easton’s superb writing and characters always draw me in and hold my attention. The descriptions of the settings and the events are so clearly conveyed.
What I adored most about this story was Sam. He was just wonderful. From the start, my heart went out to him when he was treated badly by his cruel father. Sam is such a sweet-natured person, vulnerable yet strong at the same time. I felt for him and the hardships he’d endured. I loved the way he grew as a person and found his place beside Eddie and on the farm. Sam may not have been highly educated, but he was hardworking, resourceful, and was prepared to do anything for Eddie.
The gradual progress of Sam and Eddie’s love affair was beautifully developed. It’s a sweet, slow build and when they start to become intimate it’s precious, although there’s more focus on their relationship than the sex. They are opposites in character and from very different backgrounds and experiences, but they work delightfully as a couple. It was lovely to see Sam’s fantasy life of finding a man, falling in love, and them living together happily realised. There are plenty of cute moments with the animals and also idyllic ones, such as Sam and Eddie riding on a tractor in the sunshine.
I struggled a little with Eddie. Yes, he had noble intentions in setting up the animal sanctuary and he was a big-hearted person, but he hadn’t got a clue what he was doing and was way out of his depth here. Did he really expect one person to run the farm single-handedly while he sat in his office writing novels all day? But that was part of the story, how, with Sam’s help, they eventually set up the animal shelter and make it work. The threat of bankruptcy hanging over his head was there from the start and the impact that would have on Sam and their life together added to the angst.
I like it when the same narrator is used within a series, even when the main characters change. Will created voices to match the characters’ personalities and made the story enjoyable to follow.
I have read several books by Eli Easton including the first book in the series so I was excited when I not only saw there was a new book in series but also being narrated by the same narrator. I had high hopes. For me this book was a big let-down. The plot seemed very far-fetched, what man buys a farm and has no idea how to farm? also I feel that the main character Eddie was very naive and it was hard to believe the story. My heart went out for Samuel and his situation but I feel like Eli Easton had to give him a disability for the story or it would have really just fell flat because it had no substance.
It was nice to catch up with Christy and David from the previous book but that brief moment just made me long for that book because this book was just so boring.
And finally if you like these types of books or the genre for the sex scenes your not going to get it in this book!
