It’s no question that I’m a big Kristen Ashley fan. I will stop whatever I’m doing to read her latest book. She has a way with words that make you fall in love with her characters and her stories flow so effortlessly. The Colorado Mountain series has been one of my favorite series from KA. I’ve always loved Tate & Lauren, Ty & Lexie, and Chace & Faye’s story. So, you can only imagine how thrilled I was to finally get to the mysterious Jacob ‘Deck’ Decker’s story.
This book left me feeling conflicted. It’s not that I didn’t like the book because I did. I just felt that it was missing the ‘KA’ magic.
Disappointed? In a sense, I was. Based on the first 4 books in her series, I was hoping for some ‘over the top’ crazy drama to happen (ie. Lauren & Lexie getting kidnapped, Faye getting buried …) and the camaraderie between the girls and the crazy situations they get themselves in. Sadly, none of that happened.
Instead, I found this book solely focused on the relationship between Deck and Emme and everything else was just in the background. Seeing their relationship developed was great and the cameos from the Hot Bunch and the rest of the Colorado Mtn men were a plus, but I still found myself wishing for ‘more’.
