Lyric Whetsone only had eyes for Quinn Sobel's brother Oliver, until a car crash took Oliver's life on New Year's Eve. Then, a moment of shared grief between Quinn and Lyric became something more impassioned, something that frightened Quinn so much he ran from Lyric's bed and her life, disappearing for four long years.
Now Quinn's back for another New Year's Eve, struggling for closure, desperate to leave his grief in the past and make amends with the girl of his dreams.
But Lyric has a secret—one that could drive Quinn from her life forever. Will Quinn run away from the love and acceptance he's always wanted...or will he claim his New Year's kiss and make her his at midnight?
This was my second attempt to do a Christmas-themed book supposedly for last week but unfortunately, it was one heck of a workweek then so I didn't get to finish this until this weekend.
Nevertheless, this was a good choice of a read. Although it may not be a quick entry to my favorites shortlist, this book left me with very little to complain. And the only thing I could complain about was the lack of epilogue because I really thought this was the kind of story that needed to have a HEA after the The End part. Know what I mean?
But I loved the simple writing and the simple, clean storyline. When one has tons of dark romances and smut-laden reads, books like this become a novelty. I love the characters, too. That should be a good thing as I have some other RB books set aside for future reading.
Final verdict: 8/10. Quick, feel-good read.
