Welcome back everyone, we’ve reached the end of what I’d read up until now. Fingers crossed I’m able to read the last 2 before I’d planned to release reviews for them!
I kinda liked that we had a little bit of the past that we already know at the start of this story. It sets you up and orientates you as to what’s happened in previous books, who we’re following in this one and where we’re up to in their relationship. And a few missing pieces were given to us as well which was handy to put things into perspective.
Overall, I think the struggle Molly has coming back to a town where she doesn’t have a great reputation and trying to make the best life possible for her son is admirable. Braydon’s attitude that those actions don’t define who she is today is amazing.
After being kicked out of her rental because she wouldn’t sleep with the landlord, I wasn’t sure where things were going to go. Do people seriously do that? Or is that why you should always rent through an agency with a proper rental agreement?
The fact that a seemingly innocent and NICE kid decides he has a right to sleep with her was downright creepy. I really didn’t understand where this change came from. In Ava’s book (Straight Up Love) he was this really shy, quiet kid who kept his head down, got good grades and was involved in drama. What could possibly make him flip like he did?
Braydon’s actions after the kid turned into a creep was amazing. The fact that he explained it as something along the lines of “If you walked past a guy you slept with in high school and demanded he sleep with you. Would he do it? No. So they have no right to expect the same that from you.”
This is so true, and I wish more guys could understand that. There’s a line between appreciating that a girl looks good (in a friendly non-creepy way) and eyeballing her while imagining her naked. At the same time, there are plenty of decent guys who feel like they can’t compliment a girl on hard work at the gym paying off in case they get accused of sexual harassment. Braydon’s example feels like it sums it up perfectly. And I love it!
Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed this review; on Monday I’ll be reviewing Flying Solo by Zoe May.
