4 out of 5 stars


This was a fun read, playful and light. I really enjoyed it! 


Walker and Trinity had a cute first meeting that had me smiling. I liked the flow of their relationship, it seemed rather instant but in a way that is full of excitement when you first meet someone and want to spend all your time with them. They were so sweet together, I liked their interactions. I loved Walker. He was so kind, caring, understanding, and patient. Trinity was a quirky chick and had some issues with self doubt but I loved how positive Walker was with her, really grounding her. I liked watching Trinity deal with her issues and really grow. I loved that this story was told from dual POV's so you could really see where Walker and Trinity's heads were at and what they were struggling with. Definitely a fast paced relationship but not overly done.


I loved Walkers family and how a side story played out even though I wanted to smack a his brothers and cousins upside the head a few times. I'm a sucker for any type of male bonding moments so I loved when that happened. Walker’s mother is awesome, she's unintentionally funny and full of odd, but sound wisdom. I loved her in the first book as well.


I enjoyed the start but I don't feel like I was really invested until maybe 30%. I liked Walker and Trinity from the beginning but they really grew on me making me like them more and more. There are some ups and downs throughout, solid middle with a good build and a great end. I thought the writing was really good. Enough character development that you know them but not super in depth.


It was a really great story, I really enjoyed the plot. Interesting characters, so likable and sweet! It was light and entertaining.
