This was the one story I had been waiting to get to as Savannah and Liam as they have been trading barbs in several stories, building the sexual tension that has to break soon. I was delighted to get to know them better and find out what makes them tick.
Savannah has been on my list to read! She is the second oldest of the Bailey clan and took on the family business when their parents died. At times she came across as a hard ass with restrictions on coming anywhere near her competitor after she decked him….and he just so happens to be her older brother’s wife, Holly, father. If you read Operation Bailey Wedding you know how that all ended. But she also never really got to have the experience of growing up while being considered an adult. It seems like she never has fun and shoulder’s the burden of the family. Stick up the ass kind of attitude, but I totally got her. At times I felt I could have been her. Just burdened with life and family while also trying not to feel guilty when you need help or your own time.
Liam is the complete opposite on pressure, but he also is a stand up guy with a lot of tats. He’s an artist who turned it into a business. He runs it, owns his own house, and runs many charities in the town, but he is also the best friend to Rome and Denver, Savannah’s younger twin brothers. A bad rap just by associating with these two, Savannah never lets him live down his younger years and never takes a look at who he really has become.
Through the first books, these two trade barbs that let you know the sexual tension is high. A missed opportunity to release that tension leads these two to continue that bickering while Savannah is staying at Liam’s house (along with Denver) while her’s is being fixed. But the one secret is Liam has had a thing for Savannah since he was a teenager and it hasn’t waned as he tried to forget her and move on. He wants the woman he knows is still there from before she took over the business. Determined to show her she is more than just the older sister or even the owner of the business.
Liam really shows he sees Savannah, but Savannah misses the key element of what Liam has been doing for her. Through some little acts and tasks, Savannah starts to remember why she used to be fun and how she can still have that fun even as the head of the family. Learning to say no when it means she will be overloaded, forcing the family to grow up.
Throw in the ever funny blog that resets at midnight each day, and Grandma Dori, not to mention the brothers in the Bailey family, all throw wrenches at these two, both pulling and pushing them.
Ongoing stories of the past continue. We see glimpses of Brooklyn and Wyatt as they have a part in this story. Denver being displaced for the couple or even seeing where he works which sets up the next story. It all brings the family together for a great addition of my two favorite characters!
