Another great book form Karina Bliss.

Christian & Kezia had had a rough time when they were teenagers, and they weren't mature enough to deal with everything that life threw at them. 15 years later they are much better equipped to fight and win. I like both of them, the only thing that I minded was their pride, but they did manage to come to terms with each other (eventually).

I love Christian's friends Luke & Jordan, and their friendship, the way that even they are manly men they actually
So far, i have liked Karina Bliss`s engaging writing. This just didnt work for me.. From the premise to its characters, all i wanted to do was to shake them senseless!!

However, i give her credit for some poignant POV`s that the characters showcased.

I had my self set on reading the trilogy.. so here i go..

Can two past lovers find their way back to each other? Can Kezia trust Christian with her heart and that he will not leave again? Or is Christian just wanting to have fun and leave again? Will an old woman's will bring the two lovers back together or will they both realize they are not meant to be together?

I really enjoyed the characters of this book, the story flowed easily. I really found myself related to the main character Kezia and wanting to find happiness for her.
Good story. Kezia's secret was not hard to guess and her do-gooder martyr personality was trying at times. Christian had me from the first page when he was crying at the funeral.. oh, and the fact he owned a Bentley Continental GT helped cement him as an all round good guy. Who wouldn't love him? and his success? and his good looks?

The side plot with Joe's family filled out the story nicely.

Interesting characters and setting. The plot was fast paced and interesting. I loved imagining the New Zealand landscape while reading.
Oh I hate it when I forget to review books when I read them. I liked it but dont remember much about it.
While still good, this one didn't work quite as well for me as her others.

I’ve wanted to be a writer since I was twelve but then I forgot and did a lot of other things instead. These included getting an arts degree in English and Political Studies at Auckland University (New Zealand), a postgraduate degree in periodical journalism at the University of London, travelling, having my heart broken a couple of times, meeting the right guy, building a house, having a baby - t ...more
