I will be the first to say I am a greedy reader. I want all the words and all the pages. I have been looking forward to Cross’s story since I met him in Craft, so I was a little worried I would be disappointed by his story coming as a novella. However, while this story was short, it was well written and didn’t feel rushed.
Second chance stories are some of my favorite. I love a good backstory between characters. Cross and Kallie certainly have a backstory. When they were younger, they thought they were going to have each other forever, but forever slipped through their fingers. Now that they have a second chance, they are faced with some of the same problems, but will they be able to make it work this time around?
I love Cross. He is passionate and knows exactly what he wants. While he needs a little encouragement from time to time, he goes after Kallie with everything he has. However, Kallie is a bit more reluctant. I was frustrated with her at times, but given their past, I could see where she was coming from. However, who could possibly resist Cross?
In the end, this was a sweet and steamy second chance with a happy ending. I loved seeing the Gibson boys again, and can’t wait for Crave! This also included two additional Gibson Boy short stories which were both fun additions.
