Top critical review
not bad start for a series
on 19 September 2012
I like a good old fashioned romance and thats what this is Jenny Salazar's life was all running along fine untill her dad is sent to prison and her mum takes to her bed with shame so she spends the rest of her teenage years looking after them in Razor Bay working for a loving elderly couple, she also meets her best friend there and life begins to get better, a good few years later and Jenny now manages the inn and is a big sister to the now dead couple's 13 year old grandson Austin. Their daughter died after giving birth and Austin's dad (their son-in law) Jake leaves Austin with them after they convince him they can give him a better life.
But Jake Bradshaw is back and wants custody of his son and to take him back to New York , Jake didn't intend to abandon his son he was young and scared and wanted to get out of Razor Bay. He believed that Austin was better off with his grandparents than with him. but he wants to make up for his mistake and intends to stay in Razor Bay just until he can convince Austin to return to New York with him.
I loved Austin his little side romance and his 13 year old ways made me smile (I have one of my own) and I loved his relationship with Jenny, Jake, at first I didn't like he after all abandoned Austin and never contacted him once. Despite this after a few chapters,he grew on me, I also liked his new relationship with his half brother Max.
Jake and Jenny try to get along at first as legally Jake can take Austin whether Jenny likes it or not. So she decides to make the transition easier on Austin and help the two have a father and son relationship, but the truce between the two turns into more, it then becomes what will Jake do stay in Razor Bay with Jenny and Austin or go back to New York and never know if they were meant to be.
nice easy going read perfect for a weekend read, not much new or different which is why I gace it three stars I think without Austin's bits it would of been very same old same old.
Max Jakes half brother is book 2's lead and I hope theres a few more fresh ideas for him
