Chrissy’s Review: I Liked It
So this was the much anticipated follow-up for Anne Leigh’s Love Unexpected (which I absolutely LOVED!). I liked this story of Sedona and Zander, but felt like there was more that needed to be told. I was ready to give this an “I Loved It” until the end, without giving much away, when Zander waited for Sedona instead of doing what he should have done, I was upset. I understand his reasoning, but at the same time, how could he?! The family and friends are awesome in this book and their support for Sedona and Zander, the graduation trip to Hawaii was so romantic and had me laughing out loud with the bets with the guys. I wish we would have seen more of Kieran but I guess that’s why we get another book! I mean, what’s up with how he reacted to who Brynn’s brother was?! Explanation please! This book really focused on Sedona and Zander as a couple, where I would have liked to see more of them on their own. We got glimpses, but I think it would have been great to see them more on their own, to see how great they are as a couple and how they truly are complete with each other. The bachelor party was hilarious, and Zander was so pissed, but it was cute how Anne Leigh wrote the scenes. The loose ends also needed to be tied up, i.e. Sedona and Haven’s plans for the lamps, etc., how did Zander react, how did that go? I would have also liked to have seen more of a story revolving around the relationships with the parents. They are around, we hear about them, but how in the world did Haven and Sedona become so close? Overall Anne Leigh did a great job with this book (even with the NFA instead of the NFL 🙂 but I can forgive her for that), I still loved Love Unexpected more though! I wish we would get another book for Sedona and Zander as well. The quotes at the beginning of the chapters, LOVED THEM! and to find out they are the vows for each other at their wedding, OMG! Looking forward to Kieran’s story in the fall, and hopefully another Zander/Sedona book after that??? I highly recommend picking up these books if you have not read them yet!
