Series: Calling Me
Oh, I’m so sorry I read Indigo Nights before this.
It would have made so much more sense, since this is how it all started.
Anyways, here I am now. I’ll start by saying I enjoyed it a lot, but in my opinion, Indigo Nights was better.
This is the story of Luke and Ashleigh. She’s been in love with him almost all her life. He didn’t know. She was best friends with his sister, so he kind of saw her as a sister too. But all that changed in the blink of the eye. He invited her to a work thing and when she came looking gorgeous, he felt the need to kiss her and make her his forever.
Now, the missing ★ for making it the perfect fairytale comes from:
1. 65% of the book they’re not together. I can’t have that. I was too inpatient to see them together.
2. Once he told her she’s the one for him, she didn’t believe him. She pushed him away, so that he somehow reflected on his feelings and when and if he would come back to her, he would be sure they’ll work it out. Nothing wrong with that, but you don’t do it for that long. Without any plan. Without any contact. With both of them dating other people. Or trying to. I wish he would have done some crazy romantic gestures for her to believe him or something like that.
3. Ashleigh. Always second guessing everything, doubting herself and Luke. I wish she was a stronger character. 🙂
4. Luke too, for taking too long pulling his head from his ass. And for that comment about “it’s not you, it’s me.”
The good thing is that I really loved everyone and their relationship with each other. Haven and her perfect husband Jake, Luke and his sister, Ash and Haven, Beth… Their Sunday dinners, their funny banter… Oh, and the sex. Don’t forget about that. Crazy hot.
All in all, you should definitely read them. The ending makes it worth it, trust me.
