This final offering in the Boonsboro Trilogy wraps things up with the blossoming relationship between the oldest Montgomery brother, Ryder and the sophisticated and beautiful innkeeper, Hope. We have gotten to know these two already from the previous two books and know that Ryder can be rude, abrupt and a very "Me Tarzan - You Jane" type of guy. Nora is great with her brother relationships and it's usually pretty easy to break it down, one is sweet (Beckett), one is smart and the calming influence (Owen) and one is the classic type A male, ready to hit first and ask questions later. This combination helps define the relationships but in Ryder's case, it's a little bit harder to like him, but not impossible. Hope is Ryder's complete opposite in most every way except they are both loyal to friends and family and both easy on the eyes. Since Hope is best friends with the women who are married and engaged to Ryder's brothers (Clare and Avery), it was a foregone conclusion that they would end up together and they do, but it just wasn't as exciting a ride as I hoped it would be.

Same complaint about the graphic sex: the book is a perfect YA book, spoiled by descriptively detailed sex. No, it isn't porn by any means, but it takes it out of the suitability realm for non ... Read full review
