As in her earlier books, the characters come to life for the reader. Her plotlines are resolved so as to satisfy the reader’s curiosity yet there is room to continue the story.
In the future I would love to see her write a continuing series to follow the same characters further in their story than a single book. Her characters grab you in such a way that you want to spend more time with them and greet them as old friends in another book down the road. One just isn’t enough!
I was able to identify with all the characters to some degree, which testifies to the quality of Ms. Coulter’s character development. I found that I identified with the heroine Victoria (Tori)Talcott most of all partially due to the fact that I see alot of myself in her. There were even a few scenes that caused my stomach to start doing somersaults on me because I identified so closely with this heroine and her fight to let go.
Tori is an uptight, quiet woman. Risk is a negative word in her vocabulary! When Sam McGarry , an adrenaline junkie and adventure loving sportsman, comes into her life both their worlds are turned inside out. While each sees how illogical it would be to pursue this relationship each one responds differently to this recognition.
Will they be able to acknowledge that love itself is an illogical concept? Can their connection outweigh Tori’s fears and insecurities? Will they end up together in the end?
