The anticipated sequel that I was almost afraid to read about. I have to say that Jewel E Ann is one of the most challenging authors to me. Sometimes I can love a book tons and not the other. I knew that I might have some difficulties understanding the relationship between the main characters. Damn I felt the lost fisherman.
Five years later, they both grew up and moved on with their lives but still the fire and spark was still there, more confusing for the naked fisherman, tormenting for Reese and a lot of mess in between. The past and present collided so brutally and this time their relationship might not survive.
They felt like a different version to me but with some parts still familiar. I was discovering them all over again. The plot for this one was kinda surprising and sounded like a new beginning.
Reese was not the naive girl Fisher once new. Less shy, more grown up but still with a soft spot for him. Fisher was still the same cocky and jerk but showing this time more about him. More layers for both and more things standing in their way. They really had bad timing but I’d love to think that it was about damn time to fight for this love. To live their relationship without any pressure from their family and assumption of how they should live their lives.
I adored Reese and Fisher in the first book. They really took my breath away. Until the middle of their journey in this sequel, I didn’t know how to proceed with all of this. One thing for sure, their story made me react. I felt frustrated at times, it ticked me off most of the time and adored some others but still I couldn’t move past some things happening in this story.
I don’t know how to really describe this story, there are so many things that I couldn’t deal with, especially with the main characters’ behaviors.
Love is messy, love is hard work, love can be cruel and so many things and damn if my heart cracked a little with these two.
Maybe I missed the epic love story in that final book, maybe I have to be more understanding or open minded but I wasn’t settling for less. I didn’t want a perfect story, I wanted more fight and also more communication somehow.
I would have given more stars but some parts were still little dragged out and I wished that sine things would have come out sooner, more truth at times and especially showing more that it was their story and no one has a say, even family or friends. I felt like they owned some part of it at times. It was tortured, tragic but I so wanted them to find their own way back to each other.
Even if I connected less, I kept reading until the end. That one definitely melted my heart. It wasn’t an easy journey but I was so happy to finally see them finding their own way, at their pace. This was a roller coaster of emotions and that ending was definitely worth the read. But still bittersweet.
