This was a good story. A nerdy male falling for a sassy heroine. I enjoyed reading about these characters falling in love.
Nia and Evans story is a great addition to the wonderful series. The way the story is built I did not want to put this book down. Nia is strong and brilliant where Evan is smart and lost, but they make each other whole when they are together. This was a story with some twists that I was not expecting. Shayla Black did not disappoint. I cannot wait for the next book in this series. Because you always get to see what’s going on with all of the other couples for this series.
This has been my favorite in this series. Nia and Evan completely broke my heart as they found their way to each other. Evan was such a different type of hero in the regards that he didn't really know what love was since he didn't have it growing up and he had married his high school girlfriend thinking he loved her. As his feelings and craving for Nia develop it opens a whole new world for him. He never wanted feelings and love, but Nia deserves everything. I cried real tears for Evan and Nia as they struggled down their path. Evan made me want to just wrap him up and hug him for all of the things he has missed in his life. Never saw the end coming which I absolutely loved! Great read and I can't wait for more in this series!
We got a glimpse of Evan in the 3rd book and I gotta say I was looking forward to his book. He had just lost his wife and unborn child in a car accident. He tells his sister in book 3 that he can never love again so he was going to look for his next wife like he would a business deal. I just love contract marriages!
Things don't go according to plan for Evan when he starts noticing his very efficient executive assistant when he sees her outside the office for the first time. In a way, it shows how loyal Evan was to his first wife that he never looked else where. It takes Nia dressed down looking like women do when they are not in business mode for him to see a different side of her.
I found it funny how clueless men can be sometimes. Evan is such an analytical man. Emotions are unchartered territory for him and it's completely believable. When you learn his childhood and how he met his wife it makes sense why he thought that was love.
Normally I prefer a man to go after what he wants and that is what Evan does, he just doesn't know it's for more reasons than what he states. I guess that's why I still enjoyed this despite Evan's claims of not being able to love again.
This had some nice twists in the story that kept things interesting. It also had a few silly things thrown in as well. Overall, I enjoyed Evan and Nia's story. I'm curious if we will be getting the other half siblings story. What little we saw of her, I wasn't impressed but that doesn't mean the author can't change things around for her.
Once again Shayla Black had me crying, sighing and laughing! Shayla never disappoints!! The emotional and heart tugging story of Evan and Nia. Evan had his wife and unborn child tragically pass away in a accident but he begins to realize that he needs to move on with his life. He doesn’t really believe he is capable of love again though. Nia is smart, witty and wants love and romance, none of what Evan wants anything to do with. But if Evan wants Nia and he does, he is going to have to learn to love and romance a woman and give his heart freely. Shayla writes men you can fall in love with so easily and the women she writes are what we all strive to be, strong, witty, opinionated and intelligent and independent. Do yourself a favor and BUY THIS BOOK!!
