Let me start this review by saying, I dislike a love triangle. I usually want nothing to do with them. It’s a personal preference to what I want in a romance. That being said, Lexi Ryan set out to write a book and it ended up being a love triangle. I got an ARC copy, and I went into it opened eyed thinking I wasn’t going to love it, but hey… It’s Lexi Ryan and I adore her books. Let me tell you… if there is someone that is going to get me to love a love triangle.. it’s Lexi FUCKING Ryan.
I am going to keep it pretty vague so that I don’t give anything away at all. This book is not what I was expecting at all. The character arcs and development that you see in these characters is immense. The set-up of the book is a little off putting at first, but as the book continues it works and makes sense. You can see why and where Savvy is confused and mis-stepping. You can see where Alec creates an idea of people. You can understand why Oliver is the way he is. Then you see what changes their thought processes. There is so much emotion and thought packed into this book. And the outcome isn’t what you thought it was going to be. I don’t think I will be diving into another love triangle any time soon, but that’s me. This book is wonderful and amazing, and it was great to be back in Orchid Valley.
