I am hooked on this series and this author. I love the way she can unwind a story and keep me captivated. If you haven't started this series, and you love contemporary romances, then you need to jump on board and get started. I would recommend you start from book 1 to get the full experience of this families history.
Emma is the older sister to Jake and Kyle. Both these boys experienced something no kid should, more so Jake. And when the chips where down, the unlikely one to step up was the 16 year old Emma to try and keep the family on some sort of normality. She is close to her siblings but that year when things went wrong, she formed a deeper bond that stands steadfast to the present day. The only side effect was that Emma now feels she doesn't want a family of her own.
Finn, might just be the guy to change all that for her. He is her total divergent in his manner but something just catches her eye to trust him. He also comes from a unconventional background that makes these two connect on a deeper level. He is very witty, which appeals to Emma, and he has some brilliant lines in the book, that had me giggling along with him. He was exactly what Emma needed to bring her out of that boring comfort zone and who could fit in to her crazy loving family. As he says, No reward without risk.
This book starts with some backstory, and goes back and forth between that and the present day. This was so needed to know what went on at home during that awful time and to understand Emma's dilemma. I felt it was done very well, and was just enough history to fill you in and it will just break your heart.
I have enjoyed every couple in this series, and each book seems to be my new favourite couple. Next up to finish off the series is Jack and Casey again. I am also hoping there is more on Kyle and Kenzie as well as Emma and Finn - who is just adorable and captivating.
