I Kind of Liked It!
I wasn’t so sure of this book during the first half, I had a hard time relating to Yvette and Cannon, but as the book progressed I really got into the story.
Yvette and Cannon have a past, and haven’t seen each other for three years, when they are thrown together again, Cannon is happy to finally have a chance with Yvette, and Yvette is trying to get Cannon not to see her as the girl who left three years ago and a girl who needs protecting.
I was frustrated with Yvette many times in this book, any one could see how much Cannon cared about her, but she refused to see it and seemed to push him away at every turn at first. I adored Cannon and how much he wanted to prove to Yvette he was the guy for her and how much he cared for her. He never pushed her, and only seemed to care about her. I understood his frustration with her many times in this book, especially when she refused to trust him, or let him in.
When Yvette finally let Cannon in, I felt this story got so much better. They were dealing with the Heath situation together, and Yvette was trusting Cannon, and they were able to work through issues and start to build a future together. I loved how cave man Cannon would get regarding Yvette and what he would do to protect her. He loved her so much and his character was definitely swoonworthy!
Not only is Cannon amazing, but so are all of his friends. Each of them saw how much Yvette meant to him, and embraced her into their inner circle and were there for her no matter what. Armie became like a big brother to Yvette and I loved him. He may seem like a big bad fighter, but you can tell under everything he has a heart of gold and he cares for his “family”. I can’t wait to read his story soon!
This book was frustrating at times, with Yvette and Cannon circling one another for a large part of this book and not moving forward or backwards, but at times I adored this book and the characters. The last few chapters of this book were absolutely the best, and I wish we would have gotten more of the drama that we got in those chapters throughout the whole book. I really liked how Yvette and Cannon’s story ended and hope to see more of them in future installments of this series!
