I admit to being hesitant when I started reading this originally, because of the fact that it involves the ex of the heroine’s best friend but I was very glad I took the chance. What prompted me to go for it was that the amicable relationship between the exes and the fact that said ex, our hero, was genuinely a great guy in the last book.
Caleb and Zoe have strong chemistry. I love how they build up all aspects of their relationship with the physical component coming in later. Caleb is slower to open up but when he does so, he definitely goes up in my esteem. His “grand gesture” after a misunderstanding is awesome. Zoe is a great friend to Delia. She had an internal struggle that she overcame and when she did, she charmed me even more with her quirkiness.
The story has a good helping of humor, though I found it to be slightly less than book one. It was written well with strong imagery and pacing. Definitely a big win.
Safety: No others for either even though one tries to make the other jealous to get an admission of feelings. No rape or abuse.
