Welcome back everyone, coming back to Jackson Harbour after not reading about it for a year was kind of weird. But I’m so glad I came back to it!
We’re down to one brother and the sister yet to meet their love match. Except of course they have met them. We just didn’t really know about it!
Teagan and Carter always seemed to be the fun ones that seemed to be in the centre of all the cool stuff and were always happy. I should’ve known there was more to their story. Especially Teagan.
Their back and forth, their fear, their inability to communicate was so relatable on so many levels. I can’t say too much without ruining the book but sometimes tragedy happens because people don’t think through the consequences of their actions. And sometimes tragedy happens because it’s been orchestrated by someone maniacal and that’s exactly how domestic violence happens and why so many women think they deserve it.
In some ways this book touches on and discusses domestic and family violence. Yet, it doesn’t really face it head on. Only the aftereffects are discussed and what happened is talked about generally, with no specifics.
The way Lexi talks about Teagan’s relationship with her family as a result of that relationship is amazing. I found it so powerful and really show’s how people can be twisted and manipulated, while also showing that even then, people can still stand by those they love.
I really enjoyed reading about Teagan and Carter, and yet I felt like something was missing compared to the other books. It wasn’t really anything tangible. It was this sense
Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed this review; next week I’ll be reviewing the final book, If It’s Only Love by Lexi Ryan.
