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.
Neil and Elaina first meet when a seventeen year old Neil comes to ten year old Elaina's house as a guest of her brother Ian. Elaina's family adopts Neil as a member of their family since Neil has no real home to speak of. Elaina falls in love with Neil when he winks at her across the table and so starts the love story. Neil joins the military after school and becomes SF special forces. When he is home on leave he visits with her family but primarily spends time with his girlfriend Cora who Elaina hates with a passion. All the while Neil stays in contact with Elaina but treats her like a sister. Tragedy strikes Elaina's family and her whole life changes.
When Elaina is 18 Neil comes home on leave and the dynamic between him and Elaina shifts. Their feelings for each other are finally expressed and their love story finally starts. But outside forces seek to tear them apart and Neil and Elaina are pulled apart for 5 long years. Fate decides to step in and bring these two back together and their road back to each other is just beautiful.
"I opened my eyes and traced over every part of his features, as beautiful now as he'd always been when he was a boy of seventeen and winked at me over the dinner table.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.
