I gave up my beloved reading when my son was born last year and now at the beginning of this month picked it back up again. I have re-read all of the novels that Nora Roberts has written (that I own, and some that my sister owns). But I have to say that I have fallen in love with all the Quinn brothers all over again. And now with my son, this particular novel really pulled at my heartstrings. I would recommend this book to anyone from ages 15 to 100. Thanks Nora for taking me away to another place and for reminding me how much I love to read!

While I do love this series as a whole for what it has to offer about men and their lifestyles and thoughts--because it's so refreshing from seeing things through the female point of view all the time--I always seem to find myself disappointed with this installment. Granted, it's a good way to connect everything and bring Ray Quinn full circle, but I can't shake the feeling that Phillip is just so shallow. Not in the superficial tense, but in the character development sense. Something about the way this story flows makes me feel as though I did not have much time to get to know him. I know that he had a terrible childhood and I appreciated what I saw in that, but as an adult and in his pursuit of Sybill and desire to protect Seth, I just don't see much. I feel like even though he's the kind of guy who moves quickly, he moved so quickly that I did not see into his mind unless he was thinking of Sybill. The brotherly bond that's there with Cam and Seth and Ethan and Seth is lost with Phillip. I sense him trying, but it's not in a way that makes me tear up at the turnaround he's made, like he hasn't quite followed through. And Sybill leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth. She's entirely too naive and close-minded. I know that's part of her character so that she can come to the resolution, but I think it was a bit overkill. However, the most disappointing part of this installment for me was that it was so anticlimactic. The entire series thus far was building to Gloria's confrontation with all the Quinns (women, too), and when it happened, all it took was one slap and she ran with her tail between her legs. For someone as money-hungry and doped up as she was, she sure wasn't very anxious to get what she thought was rightfully hers. I mean, that entire scene took a few paragraphs. Phillip and Sybill confessing their love and choosing to get married took a few pages. I just feel like this one strayed away from what was important: Seth, and showed less of him and his trials with Phillip. Instead it showed more of Phillip trying to woo a woman and finding out how to love outside his family. But I guess that's what the next installment is for...
