Review: I read this story a while ago and never bothered to write a review so when I re-read it today I remembered just how much I love this story and just how beautifully written it is. For me this was the ideally written story. We have a great heroine, a prince charming type of hero and a love story that just makes your heart melt.
Nora is definitely one of my favorite heroines. She is so pure and selfless and just loving. There are heroines that question everything and have a double motive for everything. That's not Nora. Nora's only intent is to protect those she loves. It was great to see how she was willing to do anything to avoid conflict and how willing she was to own and attempt to fix her own mistakes. Another thing I loved about her is that she was a strong personality but she wasn't the heroine that opposed the male hero in everything he says. I mean sure we want to strong female but not to the point where the heroine makes a big deal out of anything the male hero says. That's why I loved Nora she was willing to bend and let Gavin have his way realizing he had a bit of an alpha personality. That doesn't mean she's weak it just mean she loves him so much she wants to avoid conflict. I loved everything about Nora she was great.
Gavin was such a gentleman and he was so sweet and so understanding and he was just great in every single way. I mean sure he was a bit bossy at times and he did make some mistakes but Nora was the only thing that mattered to him. For her he would move mountains. He was great for Nora in every way. Now that means a lot because Nora is one of those perfect girls that are like angels incarnate so it means a lot for me to say that Gavin without a doubt deserved her.
The best part of this book was the love between Nora and Gavin. It was just so real and pure and selfless and just perfectly written. You could feel how much they mean to each other and it was great seeing everyone else in the clan realize how rare and perfect their love is.
I loved all of the side minor characters. They were supportive and so important to the story that without them I'm pretty sure this book wouldn't be half as good. Let me just tell you if I ever met Rena I would like give her the biggest bear hug because she was such a great friend to Nora.
So in short go get this book you won't regret it for a moment.
