I received an ARC of this book from the author via Give Me Books in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Adriana Locke and Give Me Books!
Ford is possibly my favourite Landry yet. He is dirty minded (like me), super sweet and just simple. He isn't one for the frivolous things in life. It's what he likes most about Ellie.
Ellie is such a great role model and female lead. She's a bit of a tomboy, but she's sweet as peaches (is that an actual saying? My brain just thought of it and thought is was a saying, and now I'm doubting myself) I love how Locke broke from the feminine, girly, trope that tends to repeat itself in romance novels. Finally a woman who likes fishing! (Because I do!)
Locke's writing never seizes to improve. There were some sad and emotionally intense scenes in here that did make my eyes water. I'm glad that she never stops pushing herself as an author in her books, and explores her "limits" - more like her "imaginary limits".
Overall, probably my second favourite Locke book so far. It's definitely catching up to Sacrifice! Can't wait to see what the next one will have in store for us!
