Her characters and their background was phenomenal and the overall story was put together very well. It was a lot longer than the other stories and Helena took a lot longer to write this story but the amount of time and effort she put into it is easily visible. I've already this book three times and I just got the paperback copy in the mail and I'm reading it a fourth time :D. This book really contains a lot of power and grit.
Ryan is just an amazing character with his beginning as a cop and the horrific incident he goes through and now is trying to learn to deal with. Jasmine is just so...AHHH! She was so frustrated at times because she held herself back so much because of everything she had been through.
The romance in this book is extremely steamy and I love it. I can't stress how much of an amazing job Helena did writing this book. Her characters are amazing, her story line is so much better than she ever had before and I really enjoyed those books as well. I'm just really sad this series is over!
I definitely recommend this series! If you don't want to read the whole series I would definitely read this book, each book is about a different couple so I HIGHLY recommend it!
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars!
I’m a New Adult Romance author who loves writing about what happens when love and dreams collide with the real world. I wrote my first novel, Dance for Me, in daily chunks in a very busy, very noisy coffee shop, which meant I had to order a black Americano every hour, on the hour, to keep my seat and wound up wired on caffeine most days. I hit the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists in summer 2013. Unlike my characters, I can’t dance.
