I was a little skeptical about reading this because I did not enjoy Under the Lights. However, I did like this one.
Riley was my type of character. She was a strong female character, stronger than other main characters that Glines has written about. She took a terrible situation (a rape) and became positive about the outcome which was her daughter. It took a lot of guts to come back to an entire town that hates you and thinks the worst of you. I like that she didn’t hide in the background or just take their mean comments. She was also a great mom to Bryony. (Still confused about that name)
I wasn’t too fond of Brady in Under the Lights so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’m glad he finally got his shit together and broke up with Ivy and that he believed Riley and went out of his way to reach out to her and be in her life.
I actually liked Brady and Riley together, more than I actually thought I would. She was there for Brady when he needed it he helped Riley open her heart again.
The reason I had to dock a star is that even though her rape is brought up pretty often, it was just brushed aside too often for my liking.All in all, it was a cute book with a great female lead and I enjoyed it.
