I spent twenty years waiting for Trent Hennington to open his eyes and see me. But it was all for nothing. He chose to keep himself guarded and let me walk away, proving that my time and efforts were wasted.
I’m done being invisible.
It’s time to move on.
A single dance sets my new reality into motion, and I welcome it. After all, Cooper Townsend is perfect. He’s kind, sexy, and attentive—everything a girl could want.
I thought I got it right this time.
That my heart could mend, and I would be happy.
Apparently, some things really are just too hard to walk away from.
3 1/2 out of 5 stars
Firstly, the blurb about this book really pissed me off, because I thought Grace and Cooper were going to end up together. I LOVE Cooper, and he better get a book of his own (I heard he’s getting a novella – that’s fine).
Book 3 about the Hennington Brothers stars Trent, the “law man” who is very different than both his brothers, Zach and Wyatt. Wyatt has spent the last 20 years in and out of relationships with Grace Rooney. Grace has waited patiently for Trent to finally commit, but he’s not willing to do it. So Grace tells him to eff off (in a nice way).
Grace is done waiting for Trent – except she’s really not. Any time he comes running, she opens her
legs heart and lets him right back in. Over and over. Until she finally can’t take it anymore. Cooper has been interested in Grace for a while, and when he realizes she’s done with Trent, he starts pursuing her. That finally makes Trent pull his head out of his ass.
Grace was pretty spineless. She complained about being 36 and waiting for a man. That was your fault! She kept letting Trent get away with treating her like shit. It was hard to empathize with her. Trent’s commitment issue was pretty effing stupid, in my opinion. Then there was drama within the Hennington family, and the whole time, Grace is there for Trent during it all.
Trent was pretty much a dick to Grace. In 20 effing years, the man never said I love you, but Grace still kept waiting. What does that make her? A doormat. As I keep typing this review, I’m losing more respect for both of these characters.
The best character in the book was Cooper. He was interested in Grace, but knew her heart belonged to Trent, and even told Trent as much. I was angry that Cooper was taken advantage of, because he’s a really good guy and deserves a woman who will love him. Can you tell I love Cooper? Anyway….
I like the characters in these stories, and I think this was the last book (but I hope Cooper gets one). As a series finale, it fell flat. I did like the epilogue, but overall, not my favorite of the series.
