What an absolutely fabulous couple! Having met Isabel and Wes on their FBBF17 author announcement I have to wonder how much of this bears resemblance to the authors own life. The connection between such young love is fantastic and as a man who met his love at a young age, hopefully some of this is semi biographical - did say some!
Oh what an absolute sweetie Dominic is! He comes in and saves her from the nasty bully, he rescues her, and when he gest in trouble for it, he just brushes it off as part of life. This is who he is, this is a little bit what we all hope and dream for. A man who will come in and rescue us in our time of need, who will do the right thing no matter the consequences, and not be downtrodden or disheartened if he is reprimanded for it.
There is an unwritten connection between Dominic and Alannah, it doesn't need words because you can feel it through the pages (or screen if you are e-readering as I was). The young affection, the unwavering trust, the lust and love that follows. Are these just the feelings of two young people or are these soul mates being torn apart?
What will happen in their time apart? Will Dominic meet another woman? There must be plenty in the lifestyle he lives, what if someone else grabs his attention? What if some lovely man offers to keep Alannah warm on those cold lonely nights in Alaska? So many questions about what will happen in their time apart. Will this distance show their feelings for what her parents fear? young and misguided, blinded by lust?
I loved the connection between them, how even after 10 years they can sit together and laugh, they can talk about anything. How Dominic is willing and able to tell her anything she needs, but will also keep her safe from dangerous information. I loved the strength and integrity of Alannah. As a child she stood by Dominic, despite what other people thought or said. Even when he did bad things, for the right reasons, she stood by him.
This was a fabulous journey with a great ending and I'm really looking forward to reading the next installment!
I really enjoyed this book, something was different from the beginning but it wasn't until I'd finished that I discovered what it was, this was written by a man. Yes there's loads of male authors obviously but nearly all the books I read are written by women and therefore this had a different feel to it.
This book held me and I was with these two every step of the way so why not 5*?
Firstly I rarely give 5* and also for me it was missing something, I personally needed a little more romance although Dominic nearly reduced me to tears at times. I also felt we needed more on the secondary characters, this book revolved around the two main characters as it should but normally we get more depth from interactions with friends or colleagues but Alannah doesn't have any friends with her and we don't get much on Dominic's colleagues.
Normally I love epilogues they're usually the part I look forward to but not in this case, here the epilogue didn't give the usual HEA it gave us a huge cliffhanger and now I'm having to wait for 'Long Live the King' which is due out 5th September.
KFF weren’t planning on reviewing this book but once in awhile, a read of this calibre merits a word or two. Having never read any works by this author and being a genre we thoroughly enjoy, we were to say, a tad curious. Yes, we all one-clicked and going in blind couldn’t have been a better way to get to know the author's storytelling technique which to our delight, consumed us from part one to right up until the epilogue. Speaking for myself, I have to add that after finishing it at ridiculous hour o’clock, my feelings about what had gone on left me totally unprepared. Never in a million years could I have imagined such a sweet ending with such a damn twist leaving me with my mouth wide open. At this point, I’m not even sure if I can forgive you, Señor Greer. Not only are you the culprit for my frustration, but also the reason for a running commentary of things that had happened and read out loud to my husband! Now both on tenterhooks, we came to the conclusion that you are a mean man in the best sense of the word… you write a mean story too, and exactly how I like a book to be panned out. First person in present tense with alternative points of view is my weakness and I adored your writing concept development. Even before I discovered who you were, I was patting you on your back; figuratively speaking, of course.
Love at first sight has never convinced me and thank goodness this is not the case. I am totally into friendships that flower over time, are loyal to one another and become steadfast companions notwithstanding whatever setback.This is the backbone of the two protagonists’ lives that span over a period of years and is the making for an strong understanding between them.
"Why can't I say no, when I know I should? Why can't I turn off these feelings?"
I fell hard for Dominic Collazo. The Boy Wonder. He’s different. He’s a loner. He can’t bear injustices. He has been brought up in an ambience that kids shouldn’t have to experience but he accepts it with open arms simply because he holds his father in such high esteem. He learnt the rules and regulations too quickly for my liking; however, his astuteness is above all, what will make him a leader to be respected. He’s not invincible, he makes mistakes and this for me, made him so much more loveable. Blindsided by his one and only love doesn’t fit into the equation of his ‘mob bosses’. And this folks, is why I was bowled over with his sincerity and his wish never to back down regardless of the consequences showed me his strength of character.
" Don't lie to me. I'm not dumb, okay? I told you all about this, so I know you're not gonna just sit back and let this slide..."
Alannah Sullivan is adorable. She's had a raw deal at such a young age but with no option but to comply. She doesn’t want to be where she is but this sassy and independent gal who has trouble adapting takes the bull by the horns and gets on with life. Not forgetting what she left behind years ago, there is always a means to an end. Surprisingly or not, the hand of fate plays an ace in her quest to go back to her roots. Clapping loudly here because who would ever imagine that she’d ever consider listening to her inner thoughts. You’ll only find out what they are by reading this book.
"You have to trust me, Alannah. I have never lied to you, have I?"
Suspense abounds at a perfect pace. It is not overwhelming sexy which I have no argument with, nevertheless, it overwhelming realistic. Correcting the right when it is wrong, to overcome all the obstacles in their paths, to live and forgive is what literally sold me in a read which has no grammar faults in the editing. Names and places are abundant but not at all confusing. The banter flows with such an ease that it took my breath away; yeah, I can’t put into words how much I connected with the goodies and had my doubts about other secondary characters. My biggest hang-up was how Greer decided to finish this book and only because I wanted to the outcome to be like now! Bravo to you.
