Celeste & Amy: 3.5 stars! We love this series and this installment about Jimmy and Jenna made our hearts so happy and full.
Plot, Pacing, and Style..
Celeste & Amy: We fell in love these characters back with book 1, so we were so glad to finally meet JD, or Jimmy it turns out. He finally finds a woman who makes him realize there’s more to life than being a part of the band 4225 West and having gorgeous girls fawn all over him. However, while the love that he found with Jenna was so intense and deep, it wasn’t as easy as it first seemed. This all made us love seeing the journey these two took to find their forever. This story was told in alternating POVs and took place in less than a year, which made the pacing just right because we both read this very quickly.
Celeste & Amy: As with the two books before this, we seriously fell in love with both the female and male MCs. We wanted to be Jenna, and we wanted Jimmy to love us all night long. Both Jenna and Jimmy have baggage, serious baggage, but the love they feel for each other seems so pure, and they never do anything to taint it and we loved them for it. No games, no back and forth, just love and opening up to each other. Yes, they held back a little on the truth, but there never were any games.
Celeste & Amy: So very hot, and while it seemed like their love came out of nowhere, we’re telling you, we felt this and it was real. Ms. McLaughlin has a gift and can write a romance that tugs at your heart and makes you fall in love right along side of the MCs. We also have to touch on one more topic: the filthy mouth of Mr. Davis. Whoa. Mama. Likey. We are totally dirty and would have liked more, but then we discussed and realized that less is more so really, we can’t be greedy because then it would have been over the top. It was truly just right (and so hot!!!).
Celeste & Amy: Hello, perfection. Win and win. Both were so spot on and let’s be real people, that cover is so freaking hot!
Celeste & Amy: Oh Heidi, we love you. Thank you. You got us pretty teary eyed at one point, and we knew that we’d get our HEA, but getting there was definitely not just handed to these two. It was worth the wait.
Celeste & Amy: We don’t really have any huge issues as we loved this story. However, we always feel like this section rounds it all out and makes our flails more believable so here you go…we guess we don’t know if the dad needed to be such a jerk, and maybe he could have held back a little bit and just been seriously flawed. We also wish the subject of domestic abuse and stalking was taken more seriously. We were kind of surprised Jenna wasn’t losing more sleep over it. We saw it all coming, but it was like she was in denial a little bit. But then maybe she was worried but just didn’t share it with us, the readers.
Final Thoughts/Rec it?
Celeste & Amy: Oh yes yes yes yes yes. We love this series and this book fell right into place. If you love romance, heartache, and rock and roll with smexy tatted guys who have huge hearts you want this on your TBR!...more
