The sweetest kiss is the one that means a fresh start
In the second novel of the Sweetest Kisses series, classical pianist Vera Waltham is quiet, cautious, and fiercely protective of her young daughter, but she lets down her guard enough to strike up an unlikely friendship with business law expert James Knightley. James's past comes between them when Vera learns exactly how big a tomcat he has been, but when she and her daughter are in danger, it's to James she turns...
James may just be the most complex hero I’ve met in a long, long while. There are so many different facets to who he is. Burrowes develops each in such a way that readers get to know him in a very intimate manner. I found my heart going out to him, even when I was laughing at his latest antics. Paired with Vera, a caring yet confused heroine, I wanted to be part of this couple, even considering what they went through to get to where they were together. James’ conflicts within himself and Vera’s external ones really allow you to see the characters and their relationships in a new light. Surrounded by a loveable and well developed supporting cast readers become part of a loving family in the most inviting of ways. And one cannot discount the children in this novel. They are just as important to the tale as their grown up counterparts, and really allow this novel to stand out on it`s own.
This novel was fantastic. I couldn`t put it down. Burrowes` mellow tone combined with her vibrant storytelling kept me riveted throughout. I would highly recommend it (and the rest of the series) to anyone who enjoys a good romance.
