This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Another great book form Karina Bliss. I like both of them, the only thing that I minded was their pride, but they did manage to come to terms with each other eventually. They were so sweet with Kezia, when she was a wee bit druk: I will be reading their books.
We all have plots that work for us, and those that simply don't This just didnt work for me.. From the premise to its characters, all i wanted to do was to shake them senseless!! I had my self set on reading the trilogy.. Aug 19, Alison rated it liked it Shelves: Kezia Rose inherits a ramshackle hotel and pub from her grandmother, unfortunately it is run-down, practically falling down, mortgaged to the hilt and on the verge of bankruptcy.
I'll be honest, there was so much angst in this book it was tiring. Christian and Kezia both bear a grudge, and feel like the wronged party, over the way their romance ended. In fact, they have both in their own ways being living their lives ever since in a kind of holding pattern.
Being forced together brings out all the pain from the past, uncovers secrets and bares emotions. By the end the only person I liked was Roland the rat. Overall, I would classify this as kitchen sink angst ie the author has thrown in everything but the kitchen sink , alcoholism, orphans, MIA parents, abuse, neglect, gambling and those are the ones which don't give away key plot devices! Aug 04, Gaufre rated it it was ok. I even like when old ladies make ridiculous stipulations in their will. Except I didn't see why anybody should do what she asked.
In fact, following her final wishes would actually make the situation worse. She asks Christian to help with restoring the rundown hotel business she gave to her granddaughter. BUT he can not help financially, just advise. If he does not pour any money in, the granddaughter loses the business. If he does, we don't really know what would happen would she lose the busi I even like when old ladies make ridiculous stipulations in their will.

If he does, we don't really know what would happen would she lose the business? The premise is flawed. And many of the smaller plots in the book are the same way and brushed over. There is a glimpse of Ms.

Bliss great writing and dialogue, but there are also too many components to the story and it is all over the place. Bad boy, multimillionaire, Christian Kelly returns to his rural hometown for the funeral of Muriel Rose, who was a surrogate grandmother to him as a lonely youth. Kezia Rose, Muriel's granddaughter and Christian's high school sweetheart has inherited the rundown century old family hotel.
Muriel's will calls in an IOU from Christian and requires him to help Kezia save the hotel but he cannot buy her out. As they try to salvage the hotel they find more and more debts. They also have personal issue Bad boy, multimillionaire, Christian Kelly returns to his rural hometown for the funeral of Muriel Rose, who was a surrogate grandmother to him as a lonely youth. They also have personal issues like opposite personalities, youthful secrets and resentment from the way they parted.
All this ends up being resolved in an average series romance conclusion. This took place in New Zealand, with recognizable names for cities but it could have been set anywhere. There was a general lack of description for locale, basically just rural versus city. I would have liked more of a feel of the place. Jun 02, Sabrina rated it liked it. I have read another series by Karina Bliss before and enjoyed it enough that when the opportunity to read an ARC came up for another series of hers, I decided to do it.
Though the story had a lot of great elements that pulled me into reading it, I will admit getting through the beginning was a bit tough. I was tempted to put it down, but something drove me to keep going.
In the end, I was glad to stick with it, but for the majority of the story I wanted to shake the characters and tell them both I have read another series by Karina Bliss before and enjoyed it enough that when the opportunity to read an ARC came up for another series of hers, I decided to do it. In the end, I was glad to stick with it, but for the majority of the story I wanted to shake the characters and tell them both to stop being so stubborn!
There was definitely a bit of a slow burn between the main characters, Christian and Kezia.
However, with their complicated pasts, it made total sense why it was so hard for them to make up and get back together again. This story dealt with what happens when hearts are broken, and that when trust is shattered. But there is hope as well. Hope that one can let go of the past and let yourself be vulnerable to someone else. Hope that love will triumph the bad and that you take a chance and fight for it when it is real. And it wasn't just their story but for them but some side characters as well. Despite wanting to shake Christian and Kezia and tell them to let go of their pride, their banter and chemistry was entertaining and the introduction of Christian's friends, definitely tempts me to read their stories seeing as the next two books follows them.
If you like her work, then I believe giving this story a chance is worth it. I received an ARC for an honest review. Can two past lovers find their way back to each other? Can a loner find the courage to be vulnerable? Should a nurturer settle for a man who refuses to need her? Trusting love is still their greatest challenge.
