Stronger Than You Know is a book two of a series. For me, it is much better enjoyed after having read book one – to know the overall storyline, the wonderful characters, etc. – but it certainly can be read alone. I’m loving this series so I wouldn’t miss any of these books.
This book is about Reyes McKenzie, the second of the three McKenzie siblings. To say he is a kick you-know-what kinda guy is an understatement. He also covers it up by being a charmer, alpha, serial dater…never really getting involved too deeply. And along comes Kennedy Brooks…
Kennedy is such a strong character – I loved her. She is in very big trouble, though, and has no one she can turn to, except she thinks of Reyes in one very scary situation she finds herself in. Kennedy has a horrific event in her past but she is trying to live her life the best way she can, by helping other women like herself, but sometimes even a strong, independent woman needs a helping hand.
Once again, in this story, Ms. Foster handles a horrific event(s) with understanding, compassion, and eventually love. I can’t retell Kennedy’s story as it weaves all around the characters. Reyes, and his family, take her under their wing and in the meantime, Reyes falls hard. And so does Kennedy.
Amazing story. Kept me on the edge of my seat. The McKenzie family is becoming more…familiar and open; and sometimes, the things that they say made me snort-laugh. They all have crazy skills and Reyes’ are highlighted in this story. My heart went out to Kennedy, Reyes…all the McKenzies…and all the women out there who have been touched by horrific events. I highly recommend.
