3.5 Heart Review by Ashley
I am so into this series (even though I haven't read all of the books). Giulia Lagomarsino swept in from seemingly nowhere and blindsided me with the way she mixes romance and danger and mystery and family all into one big disaster that has to be sorted out. And Jackson is no exception. Things started with a bang that had my heart aching. And in the next moment I had the giggles...
Raegan was a firecracker. There is no other way to describe her. Her situation was way less than ideal but it was what brought her and Jackson together. And poor straight laced, serious Jackson, didn't know what to make of her. She hid her pain behind sarcasm and sass and hated to be seen as weak. Because she wasn't. To live through what she had and survive, necessitated it.
The build between Jackson and Raegan was a super slow burn. It was only when danger landed on the door step of Reed Security did either of them admit out loud what they were feeling for the other.
Talk about a whirlwind. But some things seemed scattered. There were big gaps of time missing in the timeline and some events coming up in the story when they did, didn't make sense at the time. But that ending...the way it all started to come together, was intense and me hanging on every word. And the was Giulia Lagomarsino ended this one has my anticipation very high for what is next in this series.
About the Author
I'm a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, "No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book." I didn't think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn't already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven't been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.
