My 5 Star Review
When this installment begins Parker and Martin are still not together. The story continues and covers months at a time where they are a part. This was a hard pill for me to sallow, I am impatient and I like my couples together! It was so hard for me to allow the story to unfold naturally when I knew these two completed each other.
He became my compass, my beacon. And before him, I’d been a girl desperately trying to follow the footsteps of expectations even though the shoes didn’t fit.
In all seriousness these characters belonged together. The way Penny creates and develops her characters it feels like you know them. Since I know and I am expert on all things Parker and Martin I needed them together. For that same reason, it is why I know this story had to unfold in the way it did. When you first meet Parker she appears to have it all together, but as the series has progressed it has become clear this growing time is needed. As crazy as it sounds it took me days to come to this realization.
Despite the ups and downs and my feelings of anxiety, it was all overshadowed by the happiness I felt in the end. I remember just having a huge smile on my face, despite any real life drama and that’s what reading is all about, escaping. As always Ms. Reid you slayed it!
I absolutely, positively recommend this series!
I don’t want a beautiful week with you. I want a beautiful lifetime.
