Its been a while since I have read any books from this series. But this is the first that I have read this book, its the third in the series. I enjoyed this one thoroughly, and it was filled with what I definitely love in a good solid romance. I loved how the story flowed so smoothly, and I couldn’t get enough of it!! I just wanted it to go on forever, it was such a genuinely well written story that had me utterly captivated until the very end. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series!
