I'm always in my happy place when I get to read a book by Debbie Mason. I'm not really sure why since when I read them my emotions run from happy to plain pissed off within the same chapter. But with even saying that I can tell you I just love her books.

She creates charcters that you want to yell at but still can't stop reading about. Crazy, I know, but that's how I feel reading her books. It's a roller coaster of feelings. And just when I think that she couldn't possibly give me a character that would make me love/hate again, she hits with a new one.

You meet Arianna in Sandpiper Shore and you really don't like her. See this is why it's always good to read a series in order. It helps build the character for you. As much as you didn't like her in that book you saw touches of a human being. I just wasn't sure if she could be human enough for her own story.

So here's a shocker for you, right from the beginning I liked her but wasn't a fan of Connor's. Okay, maybe that's a little harsh, he ended up pissing me off way more than her. First you have what happened in their past when you was her ex's lawyer, then the move to what him and his family do to her ...I'm sorry, I don't know if I'd have given into him so quickly. It would have taken a little longer for us to have our happy ending. So much begging on his part.

He was wrong and really only thought of himself even if he wanted to play it off as thinking about her. I'm telling you I spent a ton of time yelling at this book. IT WAS SO GOOD! Of course Arianna didn't help by being all whisy-washy and almost giving up on life.

This book is so good to read. All your emotions will be at play with it. Like the ups and downs in real life you'll feel that with this story. Like I mentioned above it's best to read this series in order. Each character becomes more real as they develop from book to book. Plus there is a ongoing plot that moves from book to book. Yes, each book has it's own ending but those who read series will understand how I feel.
