Almost doesn’t count for Carter and Sophie.
The second book – a standalone! – in Danielle Norman’s Iron Orchids Series is AVAILABLE NOW!
Some people are unforgettable.
Like, the first sheriff that pulled you over for speeding.
The first person to kiss you senseless on the hood of a car.
And, the first guy to make you orgasm.
But, when all of those things are from the same man; let’s just say unforgettable doesn’t even come close.
I wonder if he ever thinks about me and everything we ALMOST had.
Oh, he remembers and he’s prepared to put his money where his mouth is…
I have mixed feelings about Almost. It is well-written and I liked the characters. A good cast of secondary characters only added to the book. But, I thought the whole secret thing dragged on too long and was a bit anti-climatic for my liking. At nearly 300 pages, you can imagine how long it dragged on. It was a little too easy to figure out and when the secret came to light there was just more book left than I thought necessary. When I did finally get to the end it was wrapped up to quickly and neatly. I guess I just felt the plot had so much potential and could have been developed a little more.
The book is billed as a romcom with a splash of drama. I did LOL often. There is one scene in particular that had me laughing until I cried. I was sitting in my car waiting on my kid to get out of practice and was laughing so loudly that the mom in the car next to me came over to investigate. There isn’t really anything particularly heavy about the story, so I guess the splash of drama thing was technically correct, but it also lacked any real angst.
I enjoyed the book, but I felt it could have been better. For me, it was just a decent second chance romance.
