WHAT A FREAKING ADORABLE BOOK! Seriously, Catherine Anderson. The more I read your books the more I like you as a human being. Seriously, this book was too cute. At the end, I was just flailing around in adorkableness. Oh, My god.
Though the Heroine, Cassie is so naive that it hurts, I still liked her. I can also get why she is so naive-being sheltered like hell by her father and brother. Which begs to question-Why in the hell would you want your child/sister to be so naive, you're not protecting them, just making them incredibly vulnerable to heartbreak and derision. HOWEVER, they do learn from their mistakes though it is 'too little too late' as they say. The heroine-once again-is religious, she wants to be a nun but as soon as she meets Luke Taggart that notion goes flying out the window along side her brain,it seems. Though I can't blame her for being so naive and it totally gets the ball rolling, I was sort of confused as to how she just doesn't seem to get it. I mean 'Paid companion' to sexy as fuck Luke Taggart. Seriously? When she was like 'OH! He must be so lonely! He has to pay to have a friend. I must think up board games to play(LITERALLY)'' I was like:
Yeah, she literally goes out of her way to think up games for them to play and Luke is all like ''OH! so INTIMATE games'' *snark, snark, sexy evil grin* In response to that she makes up a game where you write your most intimate secret on a piece of paper and the other player has to guess what it is.
ANYWAY!...LUKE TAGGART. Catherine Anderson:'Would you like one?" Me:YES, PLEASE AND THANK YOU! GIMME, GIMME, GIMME! Catherine: "OH, LANDS" NO! YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE LUKE TAGGART.
Luke Taggart is most defiantly an anti hero. He is super hard to love but we learn why he is the way he is and BOY, does he have every right to be an asshole but maybe, just maybe-come on,hear me out on this-he shouldn't have sent Cassie's family to prison? No? Seems a bit extreme just to have Cassie as your mistress for a year. I mean, YOU NEED TO CHILL, Luke. We know you're above the law because you're the richest guy in the state but seriously? You should have known that that would come back to bite you in the ass. Though Luke is a bit of an ass. You can forgive him for it. 'Cause he does do the honorable thing and marries Cassie before he even get's to sleep/impregnate her. Mainly so he can keep her and have her for the rest of her life. Seriously, this is his motive. How the boy doesn't realize how much he loves her at this point, I will never know. But he does love her and after all hell breaks loose, he genuinely works his ass(and his hands raw) trying to get her back.
The one thing I didn't like about the book is probably that Luke goes from a hardcore atheist to a believer-JUST FOR CASSIE. I mean, the sentiment is cute and the priest of their church is a pretty cool guy-I just didn't buy it or like it. You could have just accepted that Cassie was in to god and all that and gone about your merry atheist way but nooooo, Let's make Luke believe in god all of a sudden because his wife ups and leaves him(with good reason too. I mean, Luke seriously you're whole scheme was gonna bite you in the ass. You know it, I know and Catherine Anderson knows it)
By the end of the book I was in a muddle of 'THIS IS SO FREAKING ADORABLE, I WANT TO KILL IT!'.
Found my Luke Taggart-Just his face not the personality...except for the second gif...Luke Taggart is written all over that(He is just that sort of asshole):
