It finally works for me! I was not expecting that I would like this book as much as I did because it seemed AJ didn’t have much of a personality in the previous books. She seemed to be always in Keely’s shadow, but…well, who wouldn’t be, she’s the star, right? But I really like AJ’s character now.

She’s been in love with Cord pretty much her whole life, even when she didn’t know what that meant. He’s older than her, so he never looked at her that way. He’s been married, to a woman who wasn’t right for him, had a kid with her, and is now divorced, and a single father. But one night AJ decides it’s time to get Cord to notice that she’s all grown up, and make him an offer he can’t refuse.

At the same time as they are having their secret affair, AJ is going through a lot of personal stuff, losing her home, not knowing where her future will take her now that Keely has decided on a different path than hers.

This is also a very emotional book as we see the MacKay side drama unfold with Colt and his addictions, Dag and his choices, and Kade as he realizes that he wants more from life than what he’s been used to.

And who can leave out little Ky, he’s so cute. And when he came in the one morning and asked AJ why she didn’t have a sleepover with him instead of his dad (since she used to babysit him) I about died laughing!

This was definitely my favorite in the series so far! Wait… that is not saying much, let me re-phrase that… I liked it A LOT and can’t wait to keep reading!
