It would have been a 4.5 stars if he didn t slap her back and I do usually takethan 0.5 point off for something similar in other books but it seems the spanking and slapping her right back was needed to show how out of control she made him feel at times.

Ohhhhhhhhhhh my goodness.I am madly in love with this book Def in the top 5 HP list now Why have I never read this one It was perfect for me Loved both the H h, all the 2ndary characters, the family feud, the sexual chemistry, the setting The pacing for the reawakening of the romance was just right, and I loved the little unexpected twist at the end.I also loved how the house was part of the resolution.This book is a truly original and unique HP ADORE IT Lovely second chance romance the chemistry was hot and I loved the ending This was a very good lovers reunited romance I think for a short book, it successfullydelves into and explores what makes a relationship between two people who truly love each other fall apart Sometimes it s a complex mix of internal and external forces In the case of Madeline and Dominic, it was insecurity, differences in age, and fears on how that affected their relationship, and too much interference from their family in their relationship.I liked that neither was perfect and neither was d This was a very good lovers reunited romance I think for a short book, it successfullydelves into and explores what makes a relationship between two people who truly love each other fall apart Sometimes it s a complex mix of internal and external forces In the case of Madeline and Dominic, it was insecurity, differences in age, and fears on how that affected their relationship, and too much interference from their family in their relationship.I liked that neither was perfect and neither was demonized Neither was the bad guy who destroyed their relationship the first time around Madeline was young and willful, and Dominic was presumptuous and controlling Eventually that worked against their first chance at love But four years later, they are able to see past all that and find the strong chord of deep love between them and refuse to allow their insecurities, pride and fears stand in the way I truly liked that about this story I love that idea that two people who truly love each other will get the chance to be together, and I like that Ms Reid delivered that in this book I also loved the intensity between them, that strong, fierce emotion that neither could deny Even four years later, it was so strong that they couldn t move on with other people That love drew them back together.This was a quick, involving read Not just a momentary diversion, but involving me emotionally in the story Normally with lovers reunited, I feel likethan anything there is too much angst and repercussions about why it didn t work the first time, and this doesn t draw me into a story I prefer the first contact and the build of their relationship to the happy ending In this case, I found it interesting to see how they were able to get past what went wrong in the past and work it out in the future The layers intrigued me and kept me enthralled in the story I saw a lot of growth and maturity in both Madeline and Dominic, and I appreciate that Of course the HP drama and zing also makes for a good read for me Another thumbs up book by this author on my keeper shelf This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here There was a LOT going on this book So much so, that I think the love story suffered Maybe it s just me I think if some of the subplots were taken out or maybe scenes, I don t know There just seemed to be too much going on for me to care enough about two characters you really should care about.Also, there was a lot of build up to the scene that changed everyone s lives, and I was left a little deflated Oh, it was dramatic and stuff, I guess I was just expecting a little.The love story There was a LOT going on this book So much so, that I think the love story suffered Maybe
