Problem # 1 - any book where the H is pining for his dead wife for most of the book is a real killer for me. I cannot pretend to understand that kind of grief but I read romance to get away from reality for a bit.
Problem # 2 - the h running away from the H killed the book for me. He had bent over backwards for her and she knew his reasons. They'd only known each other for a week and she expected him to be fully in love with her and over his wife in such a short period. I am not contradicting myself btw, because one needs to be reasonable about the H dealing with his feelings and one week isn't enough. That said I didn't want to read about his pining for the majority of the book.
Other than that the h was flighty and a bit silly and I didn't really take to her much. I don't know where this author is going with her female leads but I wish she'd make them a bit more likeable.
Liam: He's a hockey player that got traded to the Storm. He's been in emotional turmoil and hasn't been able to get himself out of it. He has a protective nature and has a need to rescue damsel in distress. A lot of it stems from the fact he wasn't able to save his wife when she died. So, he carries the burden and doesn't see the need to let it go.
Noelle: Some might consider her a flake or flighty. Honestly, that wouldn't be off the mark. However, I kind saw her as hippie. She kind flies by the seat of her pants, not really looking to the future. She takes things as they go. Plus, she's so cheerful and tries to avoid the bad in her life.
"I can't let myself focus on the bad stuff. It's too easy to get dragged down and stuck in the muck and mire that can make us forget to live. I focus on the good."
At times she reminded me of Pollyanna, you how Pollyanna always looked for the good. But, she's also stubborn. Especially, when it comes to Liam wanting to help her out. She doesn't want to be a burden to others. She doesn't see that keeping all this to herself, is not good for her either.
So, now you get the gist of the main characters of Light the Lamp. It's always hard being the oldest, they always take on the burden of responsibility a bit too far. Noelle is no exception. She basically sacrifice everything for her brothers and continue to do so when she meets Liam. So, it's really hard for to accept any help. Liam is still coping from his wife's death when he meets Noelle, but Noelle brings out his protective nature. Which I absolutely love in Liam. Truthfully, Noelle drove me nuts on with the idea she had to do everything on her own.
However, I did enjoy reading Light the Lamp even though Noelle kind of stress me out. Partly because she always had one foot out the door. I really did love Liam and his thoughtfulness. I liked how he tried to get Noelle to open up to what she needed, even when she refuse to tell him. I think if she had been open, it might have saved her some trouble. But sometimes they have to go the hard way, even in a fictional world. Light the Lamp is a bit of an emotional read, but still gives a happy ending. So, if you are looking for a sweet and slightly emotional hockey read, you might consider Light the Lamp.
"You're worry about dimming my light, but it doesn't matter how dark you are. My light is still going to shine as bright as it ever has. And maybe after a while it'll start to look a little brighter on your side."
Light the Lamp is full of emotion, pain and recovery and great romance for another Portland Storm hockey player and his lady.
Light the Lamp is the story of Liam Kallen and Noelle Payne. Liam has recently been traded to the Storm and is still mourning the death of his wife, who was killed in a freak accident months before. He meets Noelle on the side of the road when she is having car trouble and convinces her to come with him while she figures out what to do next. Noelle is living in her car at the time, and minutes after she rides off with Liam, her car is involved in another incident and she loses everything except the clothes on her back. Because of the specter of his wife's death, Liam feels compelled to take care of her.
My problem with this book is that I felt neither of the main characters were very relatable. Noelle especially was annoying and difficult to like. She is depicted as free spirited and absent minded, and I just couldn't figure out what these two saw in each other.
