Intense characters, great plot, perfect villains... this English brother is even better!
Alex is my favorite brother so far. Wow, he is gorgeous. Ms. Regnery just keep making them better. I love the duality of Alex's personality. Alex is more human, he is not so good, but he is not all bad, he is people like us all.
Alex is lost until the right person comes around, and then he is found. Like with all English brothers, his fall is fantastic. He doesn't just fall in love, he jumps from a skyscraper. He tries to protect Jessie from himself, he makes all the chivalrous choices, but deep down he still is Alex, this skillful lover that is hotter than a volcano.
Jessie, she is amazing! She is young, but very mature, she knows what she wants, she may have some fears of the road along her way, but she doesn't let fear paralyze her. It's a tough road, Alex's past will hit her in the face several times, but only a very capable, strong person could take a man like Alex. This person is Jessie. Oh, Ms. Regnery, I love the song "Jessie's girl"!
What really has me amazed with this book is the ending. Ms. Regnery has shown a skillful comprehension of the human being, and there could be no future for them, if it wasn't this way. They need time to heal, to grow, to shine, and that's what they get with the perfect ending.
On my last review, I mentioned that I felt that Alex's book would be intense. That's it! Wonderfully, masterfully, intensely created.
Oh, I'm almost in love with Alex, I just haven't taken the plunge yet, because my heart belongs to Stratton. Bring him on Ms. Regnery, and do him justice!
This series is for those that love deeply, and are not afraid of showing! Cute, sweet, deep!
"For the first time in his life, Alex knew... If anyone was going to get hurt, it would be him."
