I must warn you… you’re going to need to read this with tissues close by. There will be tears. But there will also be love, there will be frustration, there will be some steam, and there will be some shock – but most of all there will be answers! Finally, you will be able to read what happens and what the future holds for these very much-loved characters Holland and Maguire. I loved reading this.
I was really looking forward to the conclusion of the second book Father/Son duet by Leigh Lennon. The ending of the first book left me hanging for answers and I was excited to get started. Although once again the writing was very good this story was a little too slow for me and at times it could be repetitive, I found myself desperately waiting for something to happen.
I loved Maguire in the last book and my feelings didn't waver in this one. The man is a saint and gorgeous with it and all alpha male, he was the one person that held this book together for me. Although I tried really hard to like Holland before I found her even more irritating in this story. As much as I tried, for the life of me, I couldn't see what Maguire saw in this woman. She comes across as so immature and ungrateful, always complaining, I ended up feeling really sorry for Maguire and what he had to endure in this relationship of sorts.
The last quarter of this story certainly picked up tremendously but I felt it could have been so much better had it taken place earlier on. For me, in places, it was lacking the passion and the sensuality needed for a taboo romance, it needed a little more angst and some more intimate moments between the two of them. This would have certainly made for a better read.
However, as a duet though it is an enjoyable read, especially the first book
