Series: Silver Harbor Book 2
POV: Dual 3rd Person
When you read a Melissa Foster book, you know it is going to be well done. This book is no different. Cait Weatherby has baggage upon baggage when it comes to her past and personal demons. Brant Remington wants to obliterate the walls that she has erected around her. Slowly but surely he does this. He is playing the long game, and does everything he can to make sure that she knows he is in it for the long haul, and that he isn’t messing around. Cait is kind of a frustrating character in the sense that she is so afraid to see her self-worth and the love around her that she holds herself back.
For someone who claims to have seeked out therapy then I have with the fact that she is still holding herself back from so much. I get it at the same time based on her history, but I wanted her to be open and honest with herself. Brant hold nothing back when it comes to Cait and the wy he feels. He shows her time and time again his love and support. My only gripe with this book, and what is making it a 4 star instead of 5 is the fact that Foster has so many side characters that sometimes the story that is supposed to be front and center gets a little lots in the shuffle and introduction of everyone. As a avid Foster reader, I don’t get confused over who everyone else is, but if you were coming in to this series as a first time reader you might get lost with all the side introductions. Aside from that, I really enjoyed this book, and the scene in which Cait confronts her past. Perfect.
