Alone among friends…I loved this book and they didn’t.
This book was everything I hoped for from Kristen Ashley. I laughed. I cried. I learned a few new words. I know to really listen now when someone is whispering (Kindle-check how many times “whisper” is used. I wouldn’t have noticed if The Lovely Page hadn’t told me.). I cried a LOT.
When I met Mickey in reading The Will, I had no clue he would be a perfect man for someone. All I remember (I did not reread The Will) is that Mickey was a rough-around-the-edges amateur boxer. He can fuck, and he can also do up hearts, flowers and romance. He says the sweetest things! I, Amy, fell in love right beside Amelia/Amy.
Every single heartbeat of this book was five stars for me. Every word. Every page. This is classic Kristen Ashley who, in my eyes, has got her mojo back. I hope this trend continues.
