This was a sweet sweet story of first love, broken hearts, and second chances.
We meet Neil at 17 when Elaina was only 10, and I must admit thinking where was this going to end up.
I loved how Elaina's family treated him like their own, and that Elaina thought she had just met her husband. Their friendship ticked along nicely, with Elaina having to watch Neil with different girls, he eventually signed on with the Army, when she was only 14, their departure was really sweet and cute.
She gets on with her life, when it all comes crashing down around her, she looses her daddy, he happened to get caught up in the terrorist attacks of 2001. Neil sent her a letter with his condolences but she had to just get on with it. He came home on leave but she had a string of boyfriends unfortunately she went off the rails a wee bit!
We get to see them reunite whilst he is on leave, she has just split with her then boyfriend, they are sitting at the bar, when the ex comes in, unfortunately she gets sick, Neil steps in and helps her, takes her home! Its where we learn about their feelings they both have, oh my heart was all fuzzy! I was so pleased, they spent the rest of his leave talking about their future.
They have a visitor, Neils ex! who drops a huge bomb in his lap, she shows him an ultrasound picture, leading him to believe she is expecting his child. Oh my word the emotions I had going, goodness knows what Elaina was going through, admittedly even though I was cross with her by deciding to go and not have any more contact because she didn't want to get between him and his child, she really didn't have any other choice. When we learn the circumstances about the baby; how heart broken they both are, you wished they or someone did the right thing! ok eventually it did, when Elaina finally came back to UK and taking a job with Ethan, the delectable Ethan, did I realise who they were!
I loved that finally her brother and mother got involved, pushing her into the job, the shocking reunion, both were so angry with each other, not to mention her family for meddling! I was so glad he pushed and pushed, they really deserve a happy ending, the highs and lows they endured to finally end up where they did, was a roller coaster, thrilling, romantic, sexy as hell, beautiful and so so sweet.
I followed this immediately with their Christmas story, how beautiful again, loved the presents really cute.
Plus if I'm honest I couldn't quite get over the fact that if she had given him 5 minutes they could have saved themselves from spending all that unnecessary time apart.
That being said the writing was great, it's just the plot where I found my issue.
Absolutely looking forward to Rare and Precious Things.
I fell so in love with Neil and I adored Elaina. Their story is, I think, very unique.
Like any good story, you are left wanting more. I adored this book. And it is going on my shelf of absolute favourites.
Thank you Raine for another beautiful stroy. <3 <3
abroad as a aupair before returning to work at Blackstone.
I loved them as a couple and the smut was sizzling hot, but there wasn't very much story in this outside of them and I kind of missed that outside tension. I loved the Neil Elaina described at the start, the protective, slightly dark and mysterious character, but once the first person narrative came from him, much of that mystery was stripped away and at some points he seemed a bit wet. I wanted to see more of the hard mystery man and less of the lovestruck sap.
This story is set in the UK and I have to say had a Dick Van Dyke feel to it at times with the quaint not quite right British colloquialisms (I spat my tea when someone said 'stone the crows') and phrases like 'downtown London' (it's always 'City Centre' over here) but it made me smile.
That said, it flowed well and was a sweet and hot story that I enjoyed for a couple of hours, so no complaints really.
