Do Justice To It Ijustice to it I my rating to a three only because of the babies shenanigansA uote that I loved in this bookBeing pretty wasn t a crime Wanting to please the eye of a man wasn t a broad invitation to be abused by all of them Though this book wasn t my favorite Dani Collins book this book was pretty arn good It was enjoyable and completely readable I never felt bored nor Complete Idiots Guide to iPad iPhone App Development did I try to skim through it to get to the good parts I was engaged pretty uickly from the most clever opening ever that made the story start off with a little bit of kick to it with a small amount of suspense andanger thrown in to make it coming off Horse Show differently than any other Presents that I have read in the past Though Iid find it strange the it was the prologue but whatever it was a good jumping off point and setup the reunion of Jaya and TheoAfter the setup of the story was presented then the story took us back eighteen months in the past to Jaya and Theo s relationship I liked they already had an established relationship at the point already with Theo being her boss and Jaya having a major crush on him which made her The Secret Life of the Garden decide to leave because she knew it was asking for trouble So basically she was saying goodbye to him though the struggle to leave him as were her feelings for him were very apparent The struggle was real but also in this scene I could feel the attraction between them and how they both suppressed it because of their working relationship Just that back and forth in that moment as they tried toeny their The Gone Dead desire for each other but thatidn t exactly happen Granted they never would have acted on their feelings if she wasn t leaving nor was he in the best place emotional but a passionate interlude followedDespite the fact that it happened really early in the book it Walking in Light didn t set my hackles up like it usuallyoes this early in the book because I am all about the anticipation factor before the act even happens but in this case I was okay with it because it was very beautifully written and really showed off the trust and connection between them It was a loaded scene too because this was the first time that she wanted a man after she was sexually assaulted years ago and tended to stay away from men in that way Theo was the first man to really interest her in that way and though she id go back. Off the boss's payrolland into his bed Jaya Her name reverberates around Theo Makricosta's head in time to the whirring blades of his private helicopter He must find her; only Jaya can help with the ca. And forth of whether she should or shouldn t be with him she ecided she Coding Projects in Python did and feel the pleasure that he could provide her in that moment She felt very empowered by thatecision and felt nothing but pleasure with him but she was only able to Surrounded by Spirit do that because she had feelings for Theo If it was anyone else Ion t think she could have The Day Before Happiness done that The fact they had a backstory and a pre established relationship helped her to allow that kind of intimacy with him because she felt like she knew him and that also made it for me a little easier to swallow because it wasn t just a one night stand or a stranger she was engaging in this behavior with There was that trust and intimacy already there and I could feel thatAlso I loved Theo in that scene because he truly came off as a good guy even if he was playing it off as if he was anything but Heidn t know about her past but he could tell that she was wavering about whether to Outdoor Crafts do this or not He was very sweet and understanding about the whole thing and even though heesperately wanted her he was willing only as far as she was willing to go and actually he meant it and it wasn t just words coming out of his mouth to convince her to sleep with him He started off slow and gauged her the entire way and always made sure she was okay before continuing on and it was the way he Silencing the Birds of Darkness did not that heid it It was very genuine and I could tell that he wanted her as into this as he was into her which just made the scene all the hotter Plus all the anticipation leading up to the big event just made it all the sizzling and the closer that they got physically the closer the got emotionally and it was just a good scene It showed the meaning of the ultimate connection in every single level that there was It was clear that it was meaningful scene for both of them and became the utmost of important and Edinburgh Pocket Map and Guide definitely was a night to remember in every way possible including a conseuence that would have lifetime implicationsFast forward to the present and come to find out that Theo needed Jaya s help in taking care of his nephew and niece after a situation had occurred that left his siblings trapped at sea and the children needed to protected Theo could think of no one else he could trust but Jaya And when they met again the connection was still clearly there for both of them and it wenteep along with some hurt feelings along the way He ignored her calls when she called him wounding her in the process and kind of gave up meeting him again She was mad at him but it was so much complicated than that as were her feelings for him but she agreed to help him take care of his niece and nephew Then truth slowly get revealed about their pasts as well as the present They were open and honest with each other and as that happened they got closer and closer and started to reconnect again and try to make a life together with their sonThis book could have used a little angst for my taste I just idn t feel that raw gripping angst that I am accustomed by Dani Collins It was of this truth and that truth coming out as they came to get know each other again which was fine but I think angst added would have given
