“You’ve already got one peacock, Emery—there is no need for another. What you need is a man.”
The intensity in his gaze heated my blood. I bit my lip as I cocked my head to the side. “Are you applying for the job?” I asked.
OMG…this book was ridiculously sweet. Like cavity inducing sweet. Which I am sure won’t be an issue in any way for a lot of readers. But personally, the lack of any real issues or angst stopped this from being a total 5-Star read for me. That is just me though, and I have mentioned many times of late that I prefer books that have a bit more “BITE” to them. In any case, this was still a very good read. The writing was fantastic. The pace was perfect (it did start to drag a little towards the end). The plot was engaging, and the ending was over the top sweet.
RAFE…I loved Rafe. He was smokin’ hot and had a filthy mouth. Given his past I expected him to be a little less ALL INfrom the start. Maybe a little distant and reluctant, but NOPE, he was pretty much 100% ret to go the SECOND he sees Emery. There is really nothing more to say about him as he was pretty much perfect and never did anything wrong (lol).
EMERY…I loved her character as well. Again, I expected some reluctance on her part given her history, but NOPE, she was ret to go from the second she saw Rafe as well. She was pretty much as perfect as Rafe.
This series is rich with secondary characters and again this book was no different. We see all of Rafe’s brothers. His parents. The couples from the previous books. I love the whole close knit family feel these books have. And of course, my FAVORITE side character of the entire book was ELVIS the peacock. I seriously want one as a pet now! Elvis needs to find his own HEA (lol).
Medium. I am pretty sure we are halfway into the book before any sex takes place but when we do start to get the sexy times, they are SMOKIN’ HOT. Like I mentioned, Rafe has a dirty mouth. I loved it. The couple also had good on page chemistry.
ZERO. Honestly, considering both the main characters pasts this book could have had some good angst added. And I’ll be honest I was a bit bummed out by this. Everything was just SO easy peasy. The couple never argued. They never had a single issue to deal with. Basically, unicorns were dancing through the tulips farting rainbows while leprechauns put pots of gold under their a$$es < — WHAT??!! It IS St. Patrick’s Day after all! (lol). There was like a blip of pointless OW drama and no OM drama.
~IN THE END~
Overall I really liked it. It was an easy and super sweet romance book. Was it perfect for ME, well NO, but it will be perfect for a lot of people who like their romances sweet, insta, and without any drama. Nothing wrong with that at all. The writing was perfect. The pace was perfect. The plot and the characters were both perfect. Even a bit of angst would have pushed this one to 5-Stars for me. Therefore yours truly is going to give this one two solid thumbs up and I can’t wait to see which brother is up next.
