Rating: 3 stars out of 5
I hated giving this book 3 stars. I really went into it thinking it would be a 4, maybe even 4 ½ star read for me. I had read the previous three books in the series and really enjoyed them. We met River in book 1 as he is one of the roommates and Morgan in book 2. So this coupling has been building and I was SO ready for it.
So when all of the other roommates go on a 2 week cruise, River and Morgan inevitably end up in bed. BUT, Morgan was willing to hide their relationship from their roommates for River. Not cool. River never even asked him to hide, so why compromise who you are?
River has also been carrying around a big secret about his past. Something that has been alluded to over and over again. But once the secret came out, I was shocked that it even was a secret. So he had guilt and shame, but still. I don’t think it warranted this big build up and secrecy.
That being said, River and Morgan together were amazing. Their chemistry was off the charts, even with Morgan being slightly gun shy after his attack in a previous book and River’s loss. I really liked them together and pegged them as an up coming couple since book 2. They were total opposites, but fit together so well.
So this was sweet, romantic, hot…. But the angst I was expecting for either or both character just wasn’t there.
