Running into each other all over town, has them wondering if fate has taken over. Can Katherine convience Adam that love is worth taking a second chance at marriage?
LOVED this story!! We've seen glimpses of the hardened Adam while reading the other two books in the series, so it was nice to see a softer side of him with his story.
The attraction between Adam and Katherine was instantaneous. As a reader, you could almost feel it leaping from the page. But what I really liked about this story is that I felt like Adam and Katharine became friends before they became lovers. The passion they felt for each other, I think was made that much stronger because of the friendship and mutual understanding they felt for one another.
I really enjoyed this series and am sad to see it end. I'm looking forward to Grey's new trilogy titled, The Rakes of St. James. I'm sure I love it as much as I did the Heirs' Club!
