I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.
Firstly I have to say I loved the chapter titles. They put me in a good mood from the first chapter.
Much of the story in Polished takes us back to Dan and Kade’s college days and follows how Dan and Uriah met and how they became a couple. Dan and Uriah are from very different backgrounds and on the surface, seem like an unlikely pairing. For me that is part of what makes them so good together.
When the story is in the present Dan and Uriah’s are having issues and Wynn has been working in the background to try to solve all of their problems.
I enjoyed Polished immensely. Sometimes I was having fun with the romance, relationships and heat and other times I was sad, emotional and angry. Dan and Uriah are both courageous in their own ways. I confess I found Dan to be a little a little self-righteous which bugged me and comforted in equal parts.
The epilogue (which is also the epilogue for Wager, also by Ms Chilson) is brilliant.
Polished wraps up with a brilliant epilogue but I wished Polished had included more time with all four of them but maybe I’m just being a greedy reader. I think it is time I went back to the start of Rusty Knob and did a re-read.
