    Thanks for your feedback!

    I honestly loved every minute of this!

    This was fantastic. Samantha Joyce is a wonderful storyteller and I seriously love how deep her characters are and the gentle way she includes serious issues. This is the second book in this series and is Veronica's story. If you haven't read the first book, Veronica was a bitch in it and not especially likeable. The same can be said for the beginning of this story! (Don't worry, this is a standalone, but also a "companion" so the first book is referenced and Elise & G crop up here and there). I was intrigued at how Joyce would make the previous book's "villain" someone I would eventually cheer for, and that is most certainly what happened! Veronica's character development is so well done from start to finish and she has so much more depth than you initially think, that she becomes endeared to you fairly quickly! There is a "trigger warning" assault scene in this that helps to turn Veronica's world upside-down. It's written incredibly well and is a very believable catalyst to her accidentally allowing herself to be more vulnerable and open to what Baxter has to offer. Baxter is a do-gooder but also grows throughout this story, seeing the world more for the many colors and shades of gray it is rather than just his early black & white. He is sweet but strong enough that he also puts Veronica in her place from their first meeting, which is always something I enjoy with a couple! There were so many fun scenes with these two and it was a delight to see Bax & Veronica's bond and trust growing in each one. The deeper issues - homelessness, family problems - don't hit you over the head but make a solid impact on you and there is no mistaking how they affect the characters. I honestly loved every minute of this!
