My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Another awesome read by Vi Keeland. There’s no wonder this book has topped the charts. It was well written and classic Vi Keeland quality. The story had a depth to it with characters Rachel Martin and Professor Caine West, as well as the minor characters. Another TA/Professor romance to satisfy the sweet tooth, and it’s done masterfully.
It starts out with a hilarious scene at a bar where Rachel mistakes her (unknowingly) soon-to-be boss with a guy her friend dated who they found out was married. She calls him a jerk and puts “Owen” in his place, only to find out he’s not Owen, and of course, the craziness ensues.
I loved the twists in this book that I didn’t see coming until the moment they hit me in the face. There were also parts of this book that had me literally in tears, especially mom’s advice from beyond the grave. I bawled like a baby.
I also love how music was a prominent theme throughout, and especially loved the nursing home situation that brought humor and unfathomable selflessness.
I was also amazed at how the characters’ faith played a role, yet not in a way that made you feel like you were being preached to. It was just a part of who they were, a part of their history, and how it played a role in them coming together was ingenious. Loved it!
“You don’t get to tell me what I deserve. I get to choose what I want.”
This book is chock full of chemistry. Rachel and Caine were so much fun to read, and I loved how their relationship slowly unfolded. I read the entire story eagerly, and found that it kept my attention really well throughout. A very satisfying read.
