The story had potential but I found that Marley came across as indisicive and childish at times, I struggled to believe she was a 33 year old doctor and as for Gabe, well he was fighting so many demons and seemed so immature and I just don't believe that they were really that compatible!
I did finish the book and it was ok but I really didn't think it deserved the amazing reviews it has sadly.
"I stand and watch him for a moment, trying to understand how he still feels like mine."
Marley never really planned to settle back down in her hometown, Fate, but that's exactly where the direction of her life takes her. And, she certainly never expected to bump into her ex-husband of twelve years. Nor, expect him to be her downstairs neighbour.
"I can't help the way my gaze caresses her curves. Mine. Except - they're not. And isn't that strange?"
Gabriel is a jerk. He's hostile and tries to drive her away the day she arrives. He's back in Fate with a ton of baggage, dealing his demons and the aftermath of a shocking revelation. Seeing Marley again is a shock but he can't help obsessing about her.
"His mouth is on my throat like something hot and hungry, hard now - I can feel his teeth - and I can't stop a little cry that's really more a moan."
I found this quite a compelling read. No matter how much time has passed since they last saw one another, the fascination and chemistry between them burns as brightly as ever.
Gabriel is so intense! He's obviously hurting over something and battling with something, every day, while he blows hot and cold towards Marley. In a moment of mad clarity, she suggests The Plan to him. He finds it incredibly hard to do anything else but agree, as the pull Gabriel feels towards her is undeniable and far too tempting. In the chaos of his life, she had always given him peace and was a safe place to fall.
"We can be unmarried for eternity, and you'll still be the one I love."
This story deals with so many issues, but the passion between them is real and all-consuming. I absolutely loved how the story drew to a close - it was very romantic, heartwarming, and ended on a really optimistic and happy note.
Beautifully described, the town of Fate with its tree lined streets and friendly atmosphere, came alive across the pages of this book. I don't know if it was based on a real town, but it is definitely somewhere I'd like to visit. I wasn't expecting all the feels from this story but Ms James certainly delivered them. I loved the fact that these characters were so relatable, so real. Yes, Gabe was rich and successful, brooding and solitary at times, but he was vulnerable too. He had overcome so much but certain demons still haunted him. Marley is strong and determined, a little quirky, I love her independence. Although frustrating at times, their relationship was a joy to read. They laughed, they cried, they bickered and, oh boy, was their sexual chemistry hot!
A wonderful balance of humour and conflict, affection and tenderness, not to mention a big old dose of sexiness! I laughed out loud, I swooned and I shed a tear or two. Just lovely!
It's a book which you can easily read in one sitting, these characters will pull you in and not want to let you go. I devoured this in practically one day, it just wasn't in one sitting because you know.. I have obligations (aka go to uni).
This book was fun, super entertaining, sweet and it had quite the angst, even though I'd say it was nothing compared to book 2 and 3. Those two books oh man, I won't even get into it. But if you haven't read them, you really really should because they were amazing, like truly amazing.
Okay okay let's get back to The Plan, I really really enjoyed it. It had everything I love in a book, romance, angst, heat, and I mean lots of baby making, all them good things basically.
I definitely recommend this series! You can start with each ever book you want, they're all standalones. The first two books have characters in common though.
Also if you start with Crown Jewels and you don't like it that much, please don't give up on the series because I swear to you that all the other 3 books are not only better but seriously super good!
