This is just a fun and entertaining read. I went in a bit nervous as I never read anything by this author before. I didn’t realize this is book 2 of the series but I didn’t feel lost at all. In fact, I’m anxious to go back to the first book and eagerly awaiting the next book.
When Lucas and Trinity meet at the bar where she works, they share this immediate connection. Trinity is determined to stay away from him. He is fighting her wishes. He knows a good thing when he sees it and the feisty whiskey sommelier is just that. Speaking of interesting career choices, I love that the author put her in a white male dominating field. I never read a romance with a whiskey sommelier.
Lucas tries to find ways to get close to her but it becomes even more difficult when he discovers that she is the sister of the woman his client is divorcing. I’m glad this is discovered immediately and Lucas goes about resolving it in a professional manner. There is still conflict but it handled quickly.
The real meat of the story is not from their conflict but their own personal lives. They both have a lot of baggage that they carry and it is slowly revealed throughout the course of the book. Lucas struggles with his life in Chicago as a big part of him is left behind in London. I loved how Lucas is just more than this hot shot attorney who takes everything in a joking manner. He is vulnerable. He grew up in a bad situation and made something out of himself.
I liked Trinity overall but there is a point where her bad ass demeanor is a turn off. She wants to save everyone but herself. She doesn’t even realize she is in pain until Lucas has to call her out on it and even then she lashes out as I’m the strong female. Eventually these two get their lives together and try to work on their relationship as well.
The secondary characters are a bonus in this story. They show up at the right time and have their own issues to deal with but don’t take away from the main story. As mentioned earlier, I look forward to the next book.
