In the past, Pule Matafeo hasn't had the best reputation but now he’s stepping up when others need to count on him. He's doing his best to be a responsible man, so when Posey Tyler shows up and throws his whole life into commotion, he's not sure whether to run or embrace the wildness. And when tragedy strikes, Pule is the one people turn to to hold the family together, bringing everyone closer than ever before. Will he choose a life without risk, or will he give Posey a chance to hold his heart? But if he gambles on love, will everything he’s worked hard to rebuild, be destroyed?
The sign of a great author is one who can bring a lot of emotion into a book, especially for me because I don't feel things very easily. This book had me running the gamut with my feelings and I loved every minute of it, although I don't think I've felt so many conflicting emotions in one book before.
We meet Pule in some of the previous books and I have to say, he was a cocky, sometimes immature little stinker! But there was still something about him that I really liked and I couldn't wait to read his story. I love that he started wanting more with his life and took the initiative to make some positive changes. He really wormed his way into my heart, especially when that cockiness started morphing into confidence.
Posey--what an interesting character! She had me on my toes and laughing all the time. She knows exactly what she wants and when she feels something, she feels quickly, passionately, and deeply. However...she's not someone who immediately stands out. She often says the wrong things, acts way too impulsively, and is pretty awkward and clumsy. And I really, really like her!
As with all of the books in this series, I thoroughly enjoyed seeing characters from other books. These people feel real and like dear friends to me. I rejoice in their happiness, weep for their heartache, and smile at their friendships and relationships. I don't ever want this series to end!
Content: mild violence; mild romance (kissing). Clean!
