This Story was so fast paced that it wasn't really romantic on the way a Story should be.
Evan Archer & Alaina Pierce's time together was really short & in the span of a week they were having sex almost every time they were together which bothered me because I don't think someone who has Asperger’s syndrome & a mild form of Sensory Disorder to adapt to not only be in a Relationship but be around people especially if they become overwhelmed. People who have Asperger’s syndrome tend to stay away from crowds even Family. Such as being around more than 5 people who are talking in different scenarios can be overwhelming & send that person into an Anxiety Attack which is different from an Anxiety Attack.
I really wanted to Love this Book, albeit it just didn't cut it for me.
Evan does not like noise or crowds, but he is part of a big family and can tolerate them most of the time but even his big family can overwhelm him some times. Now, he bumps into an A-list movie star who is hiding out in their apartment above their garage. He is very attracted to her and has a hard time fighting it. Alaina feels the same way. At first she does not know about his condition but once she learns of it she understands why he has acted the way he has some times. She loves that he is so open and honest, he is the breath of fresh air she has been looking for. They hit it off and things get hot and heavy. He is till himself but he is becoming more and more comfortable around her like he is with his family and no one else and that is something that is amazing to him.
I don't want to get into too much because I don't want to give a lot away, but I will say they go through their trails and she finds out he is not looking for what she is looking for and with a broken condom incident that sends Evan spiraling and lashing out, she leaves to go back home.
Does Evan get over his fear of a relationship and go after Alaina?
Does Alaina get pregnant and if so does she still have Evan in her life?
I can't wait for you to read this book and to tell me what you think of it. If you don't fall in love with Evan then there is no way in this world that you have a heart.
Thanks for reading my review. Please leave a comment on what you though of the book, I wold love to hear from you.
Until Next Time: Happy Reading.
I was intrigued before I even started page one. Since I have read the previous 3 books in the series (and Derek's novella), I knew Evan was on the autism spectrum and had a diagnosis of Aspergers. I wondered just how much detail Darcy would go into to explain to the possibly uninformed what goes on in the mind of someone like Evan. And how his relationship with a high profile star like Alaina Pierce could work.
I think she hit it out of the park. There was just enough explanation of the internal issues Evan dealt with everyday to show how he was "different" than Alaina (but these same differences actually showed how much they were alike) without making it seem preachy or like a text book descriptions of Aspergers. It never distracted from the story: it only enriched it and gave, me at least, one of the most in depth characters I've ever had the pleasure to read! I loved Evan and Alaina's evolution from strangers to friends to lovers.
Of course, it's always fun to see how the rest of the Archer clan is doing and to get a glance into future books. But it will be next to impossible for and Archer sibling to replace Evan in my heart! Fantastic :)
