I have always been a fan of Rachel Gibson but her last few books have been disappointing. She did a similar thing last year, release a novella before her next full length novel. Whilst last years novella was good, the full length novel disappointed and this year the novella has disappointed! It started well as the author writes good characters but it went downhill fast for me after I read of what happened 22 years ago as it then became totally predictable.The sex scenes in this book were a bit lacking as the author normally writes a good sex scene but not only that, both the teenage sex scene and the ones 22 years later featured no mention of contraception?!
Blue and Kasper's families have had a two hundred year old fued. They had always been taught to stay away from each others families. That is until Blue and Kasper met and had an instant attaction but after their one night together, Kasper did something that let Blue down. Fast forward 22 years and both are living back in their family homes. Kasper has been married and divorced twice with no kids and Blue has been married and divorced with a 15 year old son (who doesn't feature in this book).
I think the author should have taken out some of her descriptions of Blue and Kasper's homes and family histories and concentrated more on their 'love story'. After they re-connect it was very rushed with more telling than showing. I know it's a novella so we don't get to know how their HEA panned out...how did Blue's Son react? How did their families react? Also Kasper telling Blue he regretted not having children but that he would like her to have a few of his children when she's aged 40?! (not impossible I know but still?!). Most puzzling of all after Kasper's declaration..why had it taken him so long to tell Blue this when he had been living back in New Orleans for 5 years?!
In all honesty I think this book would have worked much better as a full length novel. There is a teaser at the end for the new full length book which features characters from her last book but after reading the teaser, it hasn't really stirred my interest. It may be time to move on from Ms Gibson I fear...
Also, big complaint. Titled Blue by you (military men) but latter just a hook to draw people in. It was just Kaspers occupation, nothing military about story
I think it's a bit of a missed opportunity, she could have done so much more with this and had left me feeling a bit disappointed.
