But Jake is not if not persistent and he is determined to be forgiven for his past sins and not let her away again He is determined to have a second chance with Charley, even if she thinks that she doesn’t want that.
This was a really great reading. The only reason I’m not giving it 5 starts if because the end seemed to be rushed. It’s like Samantha suddenly remembered: “Hey! I can turn this into a series!!”
and just stopped writing right there. If it was a stand alone with a few chapters longer and a nice epilogue and this would have been perfect.
The supportive characters were real great (I’m so hoping for a HEA for Claud and Bret!), as the main ones. Charley was an awesome heroine, which isn’t that common, and Jake even with all the pissing me off, was real great.
Believe me, this is a book you will don’t want to miss out on ;)
