I shouldn't be surprised after my previous experience with Suki Fleet. But Foxes really, truly, is an amazing story and one that I think will stay with me. I fell in love after the first few pages and got drawn in.
I love so much about it. But like other reviews have said, Danny is the number one thing to love about this book. He's such a lovable character. I don't actually remember how long it took for me to love him, but I know it wasn't long. Reading a book in the POV of such a wonderful, caring character was such a pleasure.
And watching him and Micky fall in love was another amazing thing about this book. My heart is so full after reading it....more
I don't know how Jaime Reese writes amazing book after amazing book, but so far she has made me fall in love with every book she has written. The obseI don't know how Jaime Reese writes amazing book after amazing book, but so far she has made me fall in love with every book she has written. The obsession started with A Better Man, which is still a firm favourite of mine. And now five books in, I still can't get enough of these guys and her words.
I'm pretty sure Vann and Drayton melted my heart and turned me into mush more times than I would ever be able to count. Their love was so strong, so emotional, I got so invested in their future.
These two are the epitome of meant to me. They were apart for so long, yet their love never faded. It remained present as always and kept both of them going through the crap in their lives. Their love gave me life. It made me smile. Got me all giddy when they were together on page. And I rooted hard for them.
As always with these series, we caught up with previous couples and saw how they were doing. We also got to meet some new ones. Li is hands down my girl here. I loved her and couldn't get enough of her.
I'm never going to get enough of this series or stop gushing about it. So I hope Jaime Reese continues to write it for a long, long time. These books are sort of like my crack. I can't read just one. I'm already planning a reread of the whole series at some point....more

This book had my attention at the blurb. It sounded like my type of read. It was just as good as I wanted and a lot more emotional than I was expecting. I wasn't expecting sunshine and rainbows, but the pain and torment Oliver went through really had me connecting with him. I wanted his life to improve drastically and I wanted him to recover from the trauma of his past.
I liked the relationships he built with Tude and Vera, the twins, and Simon, his love interest. I also liked his relationship with Richard's, and later Richard's wife. It was nice to see people care about him again, especially after learning about the issues surrounding his family. I won't go into detail about that because it would be a spoiler. But it's heavily hinted at before being revealed in the book later on.
I wish we'd had more exploration of Oliver's struggles and his recovery. I wanted/needed more of that in this book. We see how much he struggles, the guilt he carries around with him because of what happened, but there wasn't enough watching the recovery for me. Although I still enjoyed this book immensely and loved watching him slowly start to open himself up to people.
I love this authors writing style. I've read Heavyweight by her before and loved that one, too. This was very different, but very enjoyable. It gives me a push to read more of her work one day, because I'm sure I'll enjoy the rest, too.
