Crazy-topsy-turvey emotional roller coaster! Honestly, in the beginning I literally hated the main male character. Many times the book made me think that he had lost his everliving mind. I got so angry that I actually had to put the book down during the first evening of reading. I desperately wanted someone to smack him. On a few occasions the grandmother threatens to shoot him. I was a bit disappointed when she held back on her instinct.
Did I hate the book? ABSOLUTELY NOT! It was great! I highly recommend reading it. Any romance book that can stir up that much emotion in a reader, is a good book.
How did I get past my negative feelings for Stanton?
First, I loved how strong the female characters are in this book. Both Jenny and Sophia were excellent compliments to Stanton’s arrogance and idiocy.
Second, despite his numerous missteps, Stanton was a very sincere father to his daughter Presley.
Third, Emma Chase’s writing is funny and highly entertaining.
Fourth, (I’m a bit ashamed to admit) I read the epilogue before reading the second half of the book. I couldn’t help myself. I’m an HEA junkie and Stanton’s antics were stressing me out. I realize the error of my ways and thoroughly admit that my actions warrant punishment.
Fifth, Stanton does redeem himself. He grovels well.
I looking forward to reading the next in the series: Sustained.
