I love Adriana Locke so it’s no surprise that I jumped at the chance to read this book and I’m happy to say that she didn’t disappoint!! I loved this book! I’m having all the feels!
This book had me smiling all the way through. The characters were amazing. I love Lance Gibson, I fell for him straight away. Lance is irresistible, sexy, captivating and so smart. He puts everyone else before himself even if it’s going to hurt him.
Mariah is such a cute heroine. I reallyloved her and I related to her a lot. She loves to read and bake and all she wants is a relationship with a man that can love her for who she is and nurture her. She needs that loyalty after things that have hurt her in her past.
The banter between Mariah and Lance was hilarious, I loved every minute of them together.
Adriana Locke has a way of writing characters that make you fall in love with them straight away. She is perfect at setting the scene, developing the characters and writing amazing dialogue that has you laughing, crying and flipping the pages. I really felt like I was there with the characters and seeing everything come to life before my eyes. I finished this story in one sitting because I didn’t want to put it down.
I highly recommend his book and I can’t wait to read the next in the series because I know it’s going to be just as good, if not better.

This was my first book by Adriana, even though she has been on my TBR for a little while. Once I got into this story, I reallyloved it. It took me a little bit to wrap my head around Lances family and who was who, but thats really a background in this story for the most part.
I loved both Lance and Mariah as characters, and once you go to the heart of their personal issues and insecurities, it makes you love them even more. Mariah is one of those strong female leads who is a delight to read, and Lance is just plain cocky. But underneath it all, when you find his story, he makes you swoon even more, because of the kind of character he has.
Getting to know these guys and follow their banter was really fun, and while there are some serious issues discussed and involved in the storyline, its not written in a way that makes it too heavy. Its just right and the book is a pleasure to read.
Life is what you make it, and has blessings in disguise if you really look for them. If you're tough like these two, you can make it through anything.
I really hope to see more of these guys in the next book, because I definitely want to find out Machlan's story, and I also want to go back and read the first book. Way to start in the middle right? lol.
What a beautiful, emotional story! I could not get enough of Lance or Mariah! From the first page I knew this book was going to be good, and god was I right! The writing is exceptional, and I was made to feel every single emotion that the characters experienced. I reallyloved reading this story.
I fell in love with Lance right at the very start of this story. His character is so fun, yet sweet. I wish my History teacher at high school was as hot as Lance is! His backstory is heartbreaking, and it’s close to home for me! So I understand a little about what he is feeling. Mariah is just so sweet. I love that she bakes cupcakes and that Lance ‘steals’ them from her desk. This couple is just so cute together, I just love them.
The story is really quite emotional for me. I must admit I cried a couple of times. The story line is perfect and I felt everything that the characters felt. Adriana has done such a fantastic job with this book. I can not wait to get my hands on the next book in the series! I can see myself falling in love with all the boys in the Gibson family! I really hope Peck gets his own story as well!
