ARC copy for honest review with no compensation…what an awesome book! ! ! No spoilers here….
This book is about Erin and her “special man” which I was not expecting it to be…..how they met, how they keep the feelings going and what makes Erin tick that even her family isn’t aware of. Erin is so different from her siblings in that she has always been estranged from them from a young age and decided she needed to leave them behind in order to heal from her past. She knows she wants to return home and be a part of her sibling’s lives but she doesn’t know how to make that happen because when she gets scared or feels alone the only way for her is to runs away and get in her head in order to figure out how to be a part of the family.
So much angst, tears (theirs and mine), secrets, huge revelations, intensity and build up in the story that you get hooked from the first word to the very end of this book. So much more to say but don’t want to give away any spoilers…….
Will Erin find her way back home for good or will she continue to run away when her siblings want to make her a part of their lives permanently???
Erin Walsh comes back to Boston to attend her brother's wedding and marries her own man on the spur of the moment the eveing before the weddding. Theirs is a long distance relationship that goes on for some time because of their career commitments. Eris is traumatized by her past and is reluctant to change but her husband lovingly encourages to overcome her past history. This book is a study of the effects of their past s on the Walsh family lives and there is hope that they can overcome the strife caused by their abusive family. I highly recommend reading the entire series to capture the essence of the whole family and their partners!
I loved this book!
Erin Walsh hasn't had an easy life. She's found her calling in fire and ice until she returns forher older brother Matt's wedding to Lauren. Once she's among family she finds the reasons she left don't really apply much any more.
Her Kryptonite (I don't want to give anything away) longs for her return to him though he supports her ambitions and understands her better than anyone. He has been focused on his career forever until he meets her and is ready to do anything to make their relationship work.
I loved Erin's self-preservation and her wayward thoughts with her insights into many things. I loved her man's fierce protectiveness of her. On the outset this book seems like it is an insta-love but it's far more than that.
I'm sure I've said this before but I think this is the author's best work to date. This is the 5th book in the series while it can be read as a standalone, it really shouldn't be as there are so many things you'll miss in the other books. As with the other books, this book focuses on one couple, Erin and her man. The epilogue is both epic and captivating. The nuggets delivered in this book are shocking and surprising. I couldn't put this book down and I'm both excited for the next one and dreading it at the same time as it will be the end of this series.
All of the Walshes make repeated appearances in this book. The timing covers some of the same events as the others but they're from Erin and her man's perspectives and add quite a bit of insight.
I highly recommend this series to anyone.
