This is the first book I have ever read by M.J. Fields. I found this book very interesting and really did enjoy the book. I found that once I started this book I had trouble putting it down. With that said I did find this book to be slightly confusing at times. I found that the timeframe tended to jump without smoothness. Plus it seems that some of the conversations or situations weren’t complete. It was kind of like the sentences weren’t always complete thoughts and that is what lead to my confusion. Maybe this is just the writing style of M.J. Fields, I wouldn’t say that it is bad, just one I am not used to. I will say that the confused state I was in at times did slightly deter me from fully being engrossed in the story. With that said, I will most likely continue on with this series, because I really did enjoy this storyline and characters. I would like to see what happens with the other brothers. This was a fairly quick read, like I said even though I got confused at times, I still had trouble putting it down. I will say that if you like a book that is a cat and mouse, or push and pull type story, this is the one for you. I personally would’ve liked to see the couple together more.
As I said earlier I really did like the characters in this story. Carly and Jase were really kind of great together. I enjoyed their weird banter. Their biggest problem was communication. They really had a hard time talking to each other without one or both getting mad and then walking away. Jase was full of secrets, I guessed most of them before they were revealed, but every time a secret was about to be revealed, Jase would pull away from Carly which meant he stopped talking to her and pushed her away. I have to say, I don’t blame Carly for her attitude towards him a lot of the times. Carly was a 20 year old virgin who lived with her mom in California, but still had to go visit her dad in New Jersey. She was kind of a loner, almost sheltered in a way. She only hung out with her mom and the book club. That is until she visits her cousin Abe and meets Jase. Jase breaks her out her shell. I will say Carly was a strong and stubborn person. I loved that she didn’t let Jase just walk all over her. She definitely put him in his place quite a few times. I will say that it was great watching both Carly and Jase grow as this book went on. With all the crap that happened between them I think they came out stronger and better in the end.
As for the brothers…..I have to say that even though they could be pretty crass, I loved them all. I am looking forward to reading their own stories.
Would I recommend this book to people…..YES.
If you are looking for that quick paced, push and pull ( sexual tension ) type love story, then this is the one for you.
My imagination became apparent at age three. Sigma was my very first (imaginary) boyfriend. He lived about fifteen miles from my family’s farm. I took him chicken noodle soup every night on one of our snowmobiles, regardless of the season. Apparently he was very ill and “Thank God” I was able to care for him.
I enjoy watching people grow and change with self realization and moments of clarity that sneak up behind you and smack you in the head. I love people and have always been able to see both sides of a story. Each person that comes into our life leaves us with something it is what we choose to do with it that helps us grow.
