The 2nd book of Cougarville series.
The story focus on Samantha, Sadie’s twin. She is a very renowned surgeon in her field but also, relationship wary. She is paired with Liam Keller. The Mayor of Cougarville, and the very same shifter that almost died during the fight on the last part of book one.
The dynamics of the characters are really interesting from the thoughts of Liam to the reluctance of Samantha having babies. It was what the whole book was about. However, at some point, I felt the pain of Keller. It is not easy to be at the receiving end of a rejection. It made me want to scream at Sammie the way she accused Keller.
Keller on the other hand was something I was not expecting. The way he took care of Sammie even though she rejected him, made me love him. It is not easy to be in his place. And I really adore how Ms. Anderson revealed Liam’s true personality. Even I was amazed.
I love this because since the start of the series I have always thought that Liam is one of those Alpha men that is all brawn and guts, but I was proved wrong. I was actually happy when he admitted his feeling towards Sammie to Mathis. I was speechless.
It was a one sided love for a while but up to the end, Sammie finally succumb to her true feeling.
It is not easy being in her shoes. But with the right person to support you nothing is impossible.
I rate this 4.5 for the way the continuation was carried over. Also on how Liam’s character was revealed.
I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
