KERRY’S 5 STAR REVIEW
If you think Zander pulled your heartstrings as a child wait to see what he’s gonna do to you as an adult. This is a beautiful story of a broken adult who’s given a second chance. What a way to end this series! I was so emotional after reading Zander and Getty . Their wasn’t one moment that my heart wasn’t in my throat while reading. Honestly, we see Zander for who he really – is a broken boy that’s now a man – who holds his past in the present and that won’t allow him to move forward.
LOUISA’S 4.5 STAR REVIEW
So we met Zander and a scared 7 year old orphan. So the leap into his adulthood was one I was worried I couldn’t imagine. How dare I doubt the one and only K. Bromberg?
She brought me into the adult life of Zander without missing a step The first few chapters broke me. This poor man was still trying to come to terms with his childhood. He thought he had but when a small box shows up at his house – it throws him into a tailspin. His hateful words to Colton broke my heart, the words in which Colton say to him was hard to listen to also, a little tough love that Zander needed but every parent never wants to say to their child.
Zander leaves to find himself. He retreats to Schmittys vacation home he’s purchased and plans to flip. Who would ever think that when Zander goes to “find himself” he would find his missing half?
Getty – another character from K. Bromberg that I adore. She has always written these female characters who are so unbelievable strong. They may not know they are bad asses -at first – but they are.
Getty is hiding from a life she no longer wants. She’s taken over her life, she’s working in a bar and making her way. Yes, her mother’s best friend had offered her vacation home that she’s planning on renovating and flipping but for the time being it’s Getty’s home- her place to start fresh…alone.
The first meeting between Zander and Getty is spectacular. The cocky (pun intended) Zander and Getty meet while they are both pretty much naked!! One going into the shower and one coming out! The sparks fly and someone is bound to get burned. They are both so fragile and even though they know that their attraction can go no-where – it’s more than obvious to both it’s going to be a problem
This book takes us on a journey of self discovery and growth – with some serious sexy thrown in. Zander is all grown up and I wish I could have heard the birds and the bees talk Colton gave him because this man has skills!!!
