I was hired to proofread this book. The only aspect of the story I influenced was the spelling and grammar (and the file is probably not updated on Amazon yet.) If you feel this connection makes my review untrustworthy, so be it, but this is my honest opinion of the book.

This is the second book in the series, but you don't necessarily have to read the first book first. You're going to expose yourself to some Book One spoilers if you don't, but the major details from Book One that are pertinent to this story are covered here too.

Like Kennedy in Denver, this book is written in first person and alternates between the two main character's POVs, but this throws in occasional secondary characters POVs too. It makes the events feel very personal, but it also makes the book feel a bit repetitive at times when a scene is retold from the alternate POV. These sections aren't entirely retellings, but they are a little bit.

One of the things I've enjoyed so much about this series so far is that the women are strong characters in spite of their pasts, and they don't need a man to rescue them. That doesn't mean they don't want men in their lives, just that they don't rely on them to solve all of their problems.

Another thing that I loved about this book was the dialogue. I'm a sucker for good, natural dialogue and the dialogue in this book was exactly that. At times it's witty, sometimes it's intense, but it always felt natural. 

Overall I give this book 4* out of 5 stars because it was entertaining and the dialogue was so well done. I would recommend this series to romance readers that like their women strong and in control. - Katie 

*Note: The uncorrected manuscript would get 2.5 out of 5 stars from me because the errors I corrected were numerous and impacted the flow of the story more than the average spelling/grammar errors I encounter in published books.

About the Author

Writing a book takes a lot of energy not just the energy of the person telling the story, but the Editor, Proofreader, Beta Readers, ARC Readers, Cover Designer, Formatter, and bloggers or Promotional Team. You can't write a book for free an author has to pay for those words in a Plain Document to become something on your Kindle App or in your Hand.

As a writer, you don't expect everyone to LOVE or even LIKE what you write, but writers don't write to be praised they write because they enjoy it and it's satisfying. when your see something that was in your head transformed into an actual book the feeling is indescribable. I remember when I was young I use to think I would be a writer when I grew up up like most adults learn, Life happens and you have to put aside your childish dreams and work, provide, sacrifice. I live in this real world where every day is is struggle, so I made up a world of Billionaires and Superstars, in my books with all these characters beauty and charmed lives they still face semi-real life situation that is why I write fiction, it suppose to be over the top and unbelievable, if anyone has found any real life Werewolf or Bear shifters let me know!!!!

So with that said no matter how many one star reviews I get I will still keep telling my stories, you don't have to love them and you don't have to like them and I might be the worst author in the history of Amazon, but that's okay because I'm doing what I told my younger self I couldn't do.
