I never really connected with the characters enough to fall in love with them, but I did find Robbie and Darcy and the rest of the town of Falcon endearing enough to continue the series. I can’t really pinpoint what exactly was missing for me. Darcy and Robbie were pretty hot together and there were some really sweet moments, but I think parts of the book really kind of dragged for me. I wanted a little more romance and a little less misunderstanding/lack of communication fake dating with a side of benefits.
I also think I needed a little more character background and development. We know bits and pieces about Darcy and Robbie and their past. Robbie’s past has some pretty harsh moments, but that was his time before the Army. We don’t really get a whole lot of detail about his time there, except that he served with Darcy’s cousin, read her letters and his dog Avery was injured saving his life. I wanted to learn a little more about that time cause I’m sure it affected him immensely.
I would have liked to also learn a little more about Darcy’s time in Atlanta. We know she hates Falcon because of how the town saw her due to her mom. I kind of would have liked that to be elaborated on a little. Maybe by some of the older folks in Falcon and not just the people that were the same age as Darcy. I really liked Darcy’s grandmother and I really appreciated the steps she took to help Darcy figure out what she wanted in life.
I look forward to reading more in the series. I liked a lot of the secondary characters and it’ll be interesting to see how things progress for them. I hope that we get to see more of Darcy and Robbie in future books. I always like to follow up on couples from previous books.
