Review

I’m very much enjoying this sweet contemporary series, and I loved going back to Hollyridge for another story. I loved Wyatt immediately, and hoped he’d be able to work through Bennett’s reluctance to enter into a relationship. Wicket totally stole the story from the moment he showed up, left at the side of the road in a box.

Despite Wyatt’s life, and worry for his mother and her hospital bills, I loved how he always manages to find the good in life. He’s also a very strong personality and doesn’t hesitate to step in and protect those he cares about. The scene where he and Bennett go to dinner with Bennett’s family was fabulous. Go Wyatt! Poor Bennett. I’m not surprised he’s got a few issues with the way his family has treated him, and I really felt for him convinced that Wyatt would leave him.

I liked the introduction of his brother, Elliot, and I hope I was reading the hints right that he might get a book of his own.

I thought Wyatt’s mother was a wonderful character, and I liked how her relationship with Wyatt was in stark contrast to Bennett and his parents. Very sneaky of Wyatt in regard to Wicket, and definitely the way through to Bennett’s heart!

One of the reasons I love series is the opportunity to catch up with old friends. I loved seeing familiar characters from other Hollyridge books, and getting glimpses of their lives together a bit further on. Jaime is wonderful, especially with the way she’s managed to nudge most of the couples together. I particularly enjoyed seeing Zach, Jeff, and Jura again.

The ending was a perfect HEA. I love how each book in this series is a wonderful heartfelt story that totally hits my low angst reading spot.

5 out of 5 stars.

About Anne Barwell

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She shares her home with a cat with “tortitude” who is convinced that the house is run to suit her; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date, it appears as though Kaylee may be winning. In 2008, Anne completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra. She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth. She also hosts and reviews for other authors, and writes monthly blog posts for Love Bytes. She is the co-founder of the New Zealand Rainbow Romance writers, and a member of RWNZ. Anne’s books have received honorable mentions five times, reached the finals four times—one of which was for best gay book—and been a runner up in the Rainbow Awards. She has also been nominated twice in the Goodreads M/M Romance Reader’s Choice Awards—once for Best Fantasy and once for Best Historical. Anne can be found at https://annebarwell.wordpress.com
