“Something about the characters felt a bit flat to me. I never really fell in love with Carter and Olive didn’t really shine for me either.”
~ Under the Covers
This year, I’ve made the decision to catch up on all of Lauren Layne’s books, so when I saw that she had this new series, I knew that I wanted to give it a shot. YOURS TO KEEP is the second book in the Man of the Year series. It features a baseball player named Carter Ramsey and his former high school science partner, Olive Dunn.
I was definitely looking forward to this book, but I found it a little hard to get into. The writing is fine in that it flows nicely. However, something about the characters felt a bit flat to me. I never really fell in love with Carter and Olive didn’t really shine for me either. I kept reading, hoping that something would change or a spark would finally ignite, but the book just went on smoothly until it finished and I was left still wanting more.
So unfortunately, I was a little disappointed in it. I don’t know if that’s because I had high hopes for it, but the romance just didn’t dazzle me like I hoped it would. YOURS TO KEEP is a very easy read though. But I wish there was more to the plot and romance. Something just felt like it was missing despite it having an interesting premise. Nevertheless, I look forward to seeing Layne’s future books. Hopefully, they will enchant me more.
