This book contains:
- Divorce after several affairs.
Hannah is a woman who was forced to grow up too young, thanks to absentee parents, she raised her younger sister from a young age and protected her and her mother as best she could throughout her life. Even after leaving home, her desire to earn money to send home has driven her life.
Brendan is a billionaire orphan who owns a chain of hotels and works to “avenge” the death of his parents even though he has enough money to live comfortably. Especially when he also inherited multiple properties around the world from his parents.
Brendan and Hannah’s story begins before Jessie and Joel’s book giving us some insight almost immediately as to what caused Hannah’s upset in the previous book. We then follow them over a period of a few months as they figure out their future.
I fully enjoyed this story, although the lack of communication did grate me at times.
Given what happens between them, you’d expect them to start speaking more openly about their thoughts, emotions and plans for the future without judgement or pre-conceived ideas about the other’s motives.
While I understand that that can be difficult, especially for someone with Hannah’s background. It felt like something they should’ve been working on more consciously straight away. But then, if they did that, where would the drama be for the type of romance, we enjoy reading?
We need the angst, the drama, the uncertainty that then makes the final happily ever after so enjoyable.
Overall, a good story, just bear with it if you’re like me and find lack of communication frustrating.
