Received from Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewThis is the second of a series after Awakening It s an HEA with lots of drama dark tragic secrets light BDSM along the way Whether or not you enjoy it really depends on personal preference expectationsBridget Ross is a southern girl now living in Vermont She s a chemistry prof who loves her job the only problem she has professionally is dealing with her creepy boss Her personal life is another story She was raped 20 years ago continues to suffer from panic attacks Relationships have been few far between as sooner or later her issues take their tollConnor Reynolds has his own past to deal with Working as a janitor at the university pays the bills but his real passion is art Photography digital paintingthey all capture how he sees the world He s a loner who prefers to observe from the sidelines leave the risk taking to others Then he runs into BridgetFor me this was a book in three parts Getting through the first one was a bit of a slog It s not that it s badly written just very formulaic You have the accidental meeting OTT reactions insta lust There is a lot of innuendo ogling clenching body parts I found Bridget s character a bit difficult to believe as what we re told about her doesn t jive with her actions Despite long passages about her aversion to being touched intimacy issues she immediately begins to fantasize about Connor what they could get up to I couldn t help thinking that someone still so traumatized after 20 years as to exhibit PTSD like symptoms probably wouldn t suddenly become a lust crazed womanBut I kept reading the middle part picked up The main characters began to sound like real people having conversations you d expect if they re going to attempt a relationship move past their individual stumbling blocks We spend time with peripheral characters such as those from the first book there are also several side stories that are developedBut again I was frustrated with the contradictions in Bridget s character When one of her students comes to her with a serious situation not dissimilar to her own her first reaction is to tell the girl to talk to someone get help Something she has never done herself She s a mature intelligent well educated 38 year old woman with an issue that continues to define her life it s never dawned on her to seek counsellingThe final third deals with high drama between Bridget Connor and the resolution of the student s problem before everything is neatly tied up The people who deserve happiness find it one who doesn t gets his just desserts It all comes down to your expectations I confess I liked the first book that was due to the characters Their actions words were consistent with their situations making them believable There s nothing new or different here but that might not be a bad thing It s an easy read that won t tax the old grey matter could be just what you re looking for at the end of a long day in reality
