Fifteen books and many many book years later have passed from our first introduction to the McKay’s. I think this was a huge book in the series for many reasons. Some I could say – Dalton McKay is the last of the adult generation of McKays – and other’s are spoilers and you need to experience it reading the book but know that you will need a have a box of Kleenex handy. Through out many of the books we’ve been given glimpses of Dalton, some of those didnt make sense at the time – why he did some of the things he did. But in this book we find out about his whole life from almost the beginning to present day. And boy let me tell you that was quite a story.
In reading this book it made me glad that we got the point of view of Sierra and Rory in Gone Country because it had already given us so much insight into Rory that we didnt need a lot of her back story and this left lots of room for Dalton’s which needed to be told. One of my favorite scenes from the book is when they first met when they were around 9 years old. Their path to their HEA was not a typical or easy one but time and maturity finally put them back together at the right time.
I think this book is some of Lorelei’s best writing. Yes there is her wonderful humor and plenty of hot nekkid sex but the emotional family issues that she delves into in this book were deep and heartbreaking and beautifully written.
