I’m not sure what happened here but I didn’t fell into this story like I usually do when I read this author. It started out great but then years passed and neither of them made a move, so I was feeling skeptical about them ending up together. Nando has carried a huge secret most of his life that has dominated his relationship with his family.
Brianna is a poster child for abandonment issues. She never had much love in her life so when she met Nando and his family, she refused to mess up the good thing. They share a moment but both are afraid to act more on it. And here’s where my problem begins. The duration between them having a moment to realize they’re meant to be, was a bit too long for my liking. But I think my biggest issue is that every time he needed her, she would leave everything and show up. I think he took her for granted until it was almost too late and he felt her slipping through his fingers.
Overall it was an OK read and I’m coming back to this series for sure but I wanted more for them. What that more was I’m not sure but yeah…3.5* this time around!
