Review: After a series of 5* reads Sarah Morgan has definitely secured her place in my list of favourite authors. I’ve been looking forward to Zach/Brittany’s story since we first got hints of their story in the previous book in the series.
Zach/Brittany’s sexual chemistry and sizzling tension certainly did not disappoint and I loved seeing it all play out in what has to be the most picturesque setting for any contemporary romance series. I fell in love with Zach’s broodiness and Brittany’s radiance and Morgan succeeded in making me really excited for Alec/Skylar’s book.
Why then does it not quite get five stars? Whilst Zach/Brittany gave me all the FEELS, I just felt that parts of the book were a bit repetitive – the back and forth about needing to talk about the past and the constant reminiscing of what happened a decade ago.
