Sylvie Baker actually does have it all. She balances a successful career with the perfect boyfriend—a man she plans to marry someday. She wouldn’t change a single thing about her life…until Carson King challenges everything with one simple confession.
Sylvie is intent on fighting her feelings. Carson’s convinced it’s just a waiting game.
But how long is he willing to wait for her?
My Review – 5 Stars
This is my favorite book of Lisa’s so far. The characters had depth, hidden emotional struggles, and integrity. Carson appears to be shallow at first, but I found that he just seemed to be lost in a way. It was the same feeling I got with Sylvie. She was living her comfortable life by a schedule that she created to ensure their weren’t many surprises. It wasn’t until these two come face to face that their carefully crafted worlds are blown apart.
Carson and Sylvie are the perfect combination of fiery passion and soul-deep connection. From the moment they met, their response to each other was unlike anything either had experienced before. Like all the men in the King family, Carson finally found the one. Unfortunately for him (maybe it was poetic justice), he would have to work harder than any other to finally achieve his happily ever after. I loved their journey and how their relationship developed. I was pleasantly surprised by the realism and rawness of these characters and how beautifully their story was told. I’m also thankful for the lack of infidelity. As it was made clear by both Carson and Sylvie, how could they start something based on deception?
