Geez, this series just keeps getting better. I adored the first book, but this one, I REALLY loved! I imagine that’ll happen with each book that comes out in this series.
I really admired Tessa. She ran away and changed everything about herself. Her name, her appearance, and she even masked some of her spark for life. These were all necessary things. She was living an absolute nightmare in an abusive relationship. She was so brave and more fearless than she gave herself credit for. I like a character that is vulnerable, but also displays the desire and ability to fight. Tessa was all that, and simply amazing.
I love me some sexy rockstar heroes! Liam is all swagger and rock god. But those things don’t define who he is deep down. He’s humble, kind, and totally drool worthy! I like Catherine’s heroes in this series. They’re definitely strong and have some serious alpha vibes. They’re ridiculously protective over the ones they love, but they’re also sweet and love deeply. It’s a great combination!
Tessa is skittish, for obvious reasons, and I swooned over how Liam gained her trust. It was a SLOW process, but through it all, I could feel the flames of their chemistry growing and growing. I appreciated the friendship they developed first. Tessa needed a friend like him. Trusting Liam is part of her healing process and finding herself again.
This book was a good balance of suspense and romance. The romance part was first and foremost, which is something I really like.
I really care about the characters in this series. Catherine Cowles has the talent to draw you into her fictional world and make you fall in love with the people in Sutter Lake. I desperately NEED book 3! I’m pretty sure that Tucker’s book will make me fall hard!
