Giving It All by Christi Barth
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Final Score - 4.5 Stars!
I have to admit ... once again the story took me some time to get into. It was slow paced for me, which isn't bad, but it was just filled with too much.
Logan's story is a bit heartbreaking, but totally relateable, as is Brooke's. He's been gone on a mission and now he's headed back home, ready to meet his newly discovered half sister. A hurricane forces his plane down and an unexpected delay he finds himself face to face with the beautiful Brooke. Brooke is escaping from her life after a tragic event occurred. So, she's off an sabbatical of sorts, to decompress and find her happy again, when she bumps into her old friend from high school, Logan.
Of course, they have an incredibly steamy fling, but both agree that it can be nothing more than that. However, fate has different ideas though and before they've reconnected yet again. Now, away from the island and back to their real lives, Brooke may just want more than fling with him but Logan staying in one place is unlikely.
I loved the chemistry between Logan and Brooke! It was always there from their first meeting ... back in High School - to their reintroduction on the island! However, they were just good friend back then, with a chemistry they both ignore. I just wished things progressed a bit quicker in the revealing of their feelings - these two took forever to get on the same page. The road to true happiness is never smooth, of course their were bumps in the road, but in the end... MAGIC.
Each of these books can be read standalone and are such a fantastic read - YOU MUST READ THEM ALL! The characters are all well written and the defining storyline of the books - the event from the Naked Men's high school trip - carry over from book to book. You don't want to miss out on this one - it needs to be on everyone's #mustread list. I highly recommend it.
