My Review: 4 stars
This was a good book that put me in a better mood. I am one of those people who believes in jumping in with both feet and in love at first sight - whether you recognize it for that or not. When Connor met Sage he knew he wanted to see her again, and the same went for Sage. However, like the rest of us, Sage has issues she needed to get past in order to let Connor in. It's a difficult thing to do, expecially when your telling your secrets may get you rejected, which is what Sage thinks will happen. Then things just get weird, her ex-husband pops out of nowhere dragging her back into the mess he made, and of course blaming the entire thing on her. Jerk! A few more things happen, and Connor jumps into action and rescues Sage. This was a really sweet, action packed book, and it took me by surprise. The characters were endearing and just made me want them to find happiness. The storyline was sort of predictable in the beginning, but then not predictable at all. I liked that - it caught me off guard. Great job Isabella.
