I recommend that you read Us At First before jumping into It's Our Time. I don't think that you will like the characters as much if you don't read the beginning of their story. I totally fell in love with Ian in Us At First and my feelings did not change in this book. I wanted to slap him a few times but I still love him. I like Sydney a little bit less in this book but I definitely do not hate her. Stop reading if you have not read Us At First--there are SPOILERS! Ian and Sydney ended on a horrible note when she graduated high school. I understand the stress that they each had trying to have a non-relationship in high school and college. They were way too far apart and it would not have worked out. When Sydney tried to contact Ian with her secret and did not receive a response from him, she basically wrote him off. Then a couple of year later, he showed back up and she realized that he never got her messages. She decided she could not tell him now and only had a physical relationship with him. Ian can't figure out why Sydney refuses to be more than a friend with benefits, using the word friend loosely. He is finally at a point in his life where they can have a relationship but he does keep a secret from her too. Once they each find out what the other is hiding, the world tilts for them both. Ian pretty much forgives Sydney almost immediately and tries to make up for not being in her life for a couple of years. Sydney can't seem to let go of what happened in the past. That is one of the biggest reasons I could not like her in this book. I tried to sympathize with her but I couldn't. I was totally on Ian's side on the fights. I really liked this book. I read it fairly quickly and really enjoy this series. I am giving this book 4.5 out of 5 stars.
Lindsay Paige scores with IT’S OUR TIME, the third book of the Carolina Rebels series. Since he was a teenager, NHL defenseman, Ian Rhett, has only wanted one woman, Sydney Jarvis. Mistakes were made, and secrets were kept. Ian’s goal is to convince Sydney to give their relationship another shot. This contemporary sports romance takes place in North Carolina. It is suitable for adult audiences. Lindsay Paige does a great job with her character development. Ian and Sydney are believable and likeable. They have faults and grow through the story. They have known each other for six-years; however, they still have a lot to learn about each other. They have wonderful chemistry. They are two people you want to see work things out. Savannah is cute. I love the things that came out of her mouth. The plot was well laid out and convincing. I like how the previous characters in the series were utilized throughout this book. There was a lot of family drama that caused complications. I enjoy Lindsay Paige’s writing style. Her stories are genuine and heartfelt. I am looking forward to Scott and Sylvia Boyd’s story the next book in the series, AN UNEXPECTED LIFE. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
It's Our Time (Carolina Rebels #3) is the continuation of Ian Rhett's and Sydney Jarvis' story from the Us At First novella (Carolina Rebels #2.5). The Carolina Rebels hockey romance series is a wonderful series to read, but my personal opinion is that it makes the most sense if you read the books in order. I recommend reading Us At First prior to reading It's Our Time. Ian is trying to break through Sydney's walls that she has put up to protect her heart from breaking all over again. She trusted Ian once and is scared to get hurt if she lets him in again, yet at the same time, she's holding her own big secret from Ian. The novel is an amazing continuation to their story and their happily ever after! I love that Lindsay's writing really explores that delicate balance of trust when the heroine is anxious from previous heartbreak. Her story featured a compassionate hero who becomes the perfect formula for allowing her heroine to open up and trust again. I love how Lindsay realistically portrays that anxiety and inner thoughts throughout her heroine's journey. Love this series!!! *I received a free Advance Reader Copy in exchange for my honest thoughts/opinions of the author's book.*
