4 STAR Review by Jodi for Ruby Red Romance Review
I’m a huge Jami Davenport fan, but for some reason, I just didn’t love this book as I wanted. Derek and Rachel were believable and relatable. I just…I don’t know, must have been in a mood when I read this book. I think it hurt my heart to see Derek hurt Rachel. I wanted to love them, but I really just liked them. I know Derek and Rachel from past Jami Davenport stories, so I wanted to know more about them. I did like that they had attraction and chemistry. I didn’t like that we could have done the total girl power thing with Rachel and her job. I feel like Jami missed the boat just a little with that one.
All in all it was a good story. I’m glad to know where these two started and how their love came to be.
