Cover Art: I thought the cover was great. The picture was simple with enough detail to relate to story and memorable. The font is easy to read.
Synopsis: I liked the blurb, the story could have been a little confusing because there were so many details, but going back to the blurb for clarification was great.
Plot: I liked that they were once a couple and now had a chance to find their way back to each other, even though there was a lot to go against them.
Main Characters: I loved Gus and Rey. I thought they both had issues and there were certainly a lot of things going against them, but they were both willing to make changes and concede to the other without being jerks.
Secondary Characters: Gus’s four brothers were very interesting and I can’t wait to read their stories. As well, Chris and Earl were both great, and I loved that Jules and her parents weren’t vilified but an important part of Chris’s life.
Flow/Continuity: I thought the story flowed beautifully. It was a slow build as we learned about everyone, their pasts and how they fit together now. Nothing happened fast or easy, but with a realistic time frame.
Conflict & Climax: The conflict was definitely internal to Gus and Rey. They both worked hard to resolve issues and compromise.
Writing Style: I love Rhys Ford’s style and this book was no different. With every one of her books, I think that’s my favourite, and then I read the next. Right now this is my favourite. I thought it was a great start to a new series and I can’t wait for the next book
Editing/Formatting: I thought the editing was pretty clean and made it easy to read and follow. The font was easy to read, not too much white space.
Price: $7.22 CAN, $5.67 US, £4.23 UK. I think this is a fair price for the amount of story and enjoyment.
I must give this 10 out of 10 stars!
