A stolen kiss reveals more chemistry and feelings than just the lifelong friendship they have all shared. As Sydney and Morgan delve deeper into their forbidden entanglement, her ex spirals more out of control.
Lots of angst, and I didn’t like that Syd was so indecisive, which caused a lot of the angst, but Morgan was not immune to his share of the problem either.
The chemistry and sex between Sydney and Morgan is off the radar, but they need to fix all of their family relationship issues as well.
Second case in point regarding another shocker just thrown out by this storyteller willy nilly: a sub character, Jared aka Red, the brother of Sydney, had a 6 year old daughter of whom he never knew existed. He was consumed with finding her since the mother had seemingly vanished off the face of the earth. Well again Ms. Wright just threw that important and juicy tidbit in the realm of readerdom shockingly blasé through his then booty call when she was complaining to Sydney about her love life as opposed to Sydney's. Then boom! She says "he's (meaning Red) is on a mission to find his daughter". With my eyes bugging and my mouth agape, I'm like saying what in the hell??!!! Where did this come from????
Therein lies the reason for me looking up the word of conundrum in the dictionary!
This storyline is not a new one on the block - woman (Sydney Williams) in love with man (Caden Smith) who cheated repeatedly but was slick enough to get woman to take him back repeatedly - woman finally reaches her boiling point and gets out of toxic relationship - younger brother ( Morgan Smith), who has loved her from afar for years, finally gets his chance to declare his long held romantic feelings for said object of his desires - they begin a guilt ridden love affair - said guilt resulting because of brotherly bond and cheating brother convinced he can slick his way back into relationship- said cheating behind older brother has accident - cheated on girlfriend's guilt leads her to help in his recuperation by spending nights in his house - fallout with other brother she's having affair with - ensuing drama resulting in separation - separation ending - HEA.
Old storyline but beautifully done and well written. I enjoyed this read and know that Ms. Wright has a very bright future in this writing game. She embroils you immediately into the world of her characters and continues to captivate you with the originality she injects into her unique story telling capabilities. I highly recommend this author to be added to the list of authors to follow. She is going to continue to write stories that will bring many delightful moments to your reading enjoyment. So I guess I can say, despite my initial conundrum, I enjoyed the read to come down on the side of 4.5 stars. Though I enjoyed this story and recognize a great talent in Ms. Wright, I will read reviewer comments to see how this particular series ends, but will definitely be reading more of her future works. Okay, Okay! I know it sounds like a left handed compliment, even to me, but that's my end result after finishing this read.
