I loved this book. It was short but oh so sweet! I love the Gibson Boy series and I missed this book when it was in the Anthology but I am so glad I got to read it now. It has made me even more excited for the release of Crave!
Cross made me swoon....hard! He is such a sweetheart! I loved the way he was with Kallie. Kallie is back In town after being away. She is resistant to Cross’ charms but can she keep that up? This couple had the sweetest chemistry. They are the perfect example of how some loves never die.
I so so wish this book was longer! I understand it’s a novella but I want more!! I’ll just have to wait until Crave is released. This book is quick, and sweet, but a very enjoyable read. I also liked the two short stories at the end of the book. I can only hope that we will get a story of Blaire and Holt meeting again! I’d love to see that!!
Novella, 'Cross' by Adriana Locke, was a short and sweet Gibson Boys experience. The plot was an emotional, hot, second chance romance. The timeline placed this story just before 'Crank'. Opposites, Kallie Welch (the good girl) and Cross Jacobs (Machlan Gibson's friend) were the MCs. As teens, they were in love, but Cross was a big disappointment to Kallie and she left town with a broken heart. Years later, their paths crossed again. For a novella, Adriana was still able to connect me closely to both the plot and characters. She built a deep and punchy story around the theme of regaining love and trust, (but there were also charming and funny scenes, too). **Two bonus short stories, 'Restraint' and 'Crash' begin at around 64%, btw.
I really enjoyed Cross!! I was a bit confused at first as it started out with Machlan. So I was like huh? But then it kicked in with Kallie and Cross. I loved their story. I wish it had been a bit longer, but I know this was a novella. Of course there was a twist in the story, and I wanted to punch that other girl so hard!! I'm glad that Kallie finally came around and seen that Cross is NOT the same guy he was years before. I really liked the storyline, and how it flowed, and funny it was at times too with the other characters. I can't wait to read more!!
