HOT end of summer beach read!
This story was such a fun continuation of Jase and Carly’s story. Now that Jase and Carly are living in the same town they are forced to face the realities of their relationship. Insecurities, jealousy and family threaten their relationship and make them question if their love for one another is enough. Jase deals with things head on, sometimes before thinking them through, while Carly prefers to overthink things and shut herself down. Carly and Jase have to figure out if they can accept each other despite their flaws and find a way to make their love always come first.
“Baby, climb on out of that head of yours and talk to me.”
This story was just what I needed for Carly and Jase. It was organic and honest and it made me love them even more than I already did. Change is terrifying and challenging and nothing bothers me more than characters who seem to somehow completely avoid that reality and ride off into the sunset. Carly and Jase face life together in a way that is real and raw and emotional. It strengthened my connection to their story and made me feel like I was a part of it. M.J. Fields knows how to tug on a reader’s heartstrings and she had me reeling with emotion the entire time.
“She sat on the board and laughed and cried the entire time I pushed her to shore. Just like the first time I knew that Carly Smythe the twenty year-old Stanford sophomore who was smart as hell, funny as fuck, and smoking hot. A good girl who tamed me, reeled me in, brought me back to who I used to be and bound my heart, forever changing my life.”
I loved seeing the rest of the Steel family in this novella. Their family always keeps me laughing and on the edge of my seat waiting to see what shenanigans they’ll get into next! We get to see more of Carly with the other Steel men and watching her hold her own with them is endlessly entertaining. Seeing more of the Steel men got me excited to read their individual stories. They each have such unique personalities and together they are the perfect storm. M.J. Fields has created an awesome family full of colorful and complex characters. I can’t help but wish I was a part of their crazy brood. I enjoyed this next piece of Jase and Carly’s story and I can’t wait to see more of them in the other brothers’ books.
