5 stars I got this as a freebie when i signed up for the newsletter It was thouroughly enjoyabke and i finished it immediately On the other hand, now it s been a week or three and i could not, for the life of me, remember what this had been about Reading other reviews that lay out the plot, it is coming back to me slowly, but i guess the important thing has been said I liked it, i m recalling it now and the plot was fine, the book was better characters A but it was, apparently, not that memorable to me.
I am still really grateful i got to read this and i do really love Talia s writing and all her diversity I guess it was probably a 3.
5 star read rounded up, but due to the time passing maybe i d round it down now.

this was the last book of Talia s i had to devour and it was a quick delightful read Dionne, the heroine, was divine, i adored her No surprise there because i love all of Talia s heroines I gotta say tho I do wish Dionne was on the cover because this is very much her story and Adam, while I love that dude seriously was really a part of her journey of atonement This book was so engaging Talia really crafts such multi dimensional characters and her female characters are always so amazing I would so love to be friends with Dionne and her crew Also whew Dionne and Adam were so steamy together And one thing we can always be assured of with Talia s heroes is that they are always in awe of the heroines And they are catching all the feels and i love that So now I wait to see what Talia puts out next because whatever it is imma be reading it
Es instalove pero en este caso no me molest Me encant que fuera Adam el que quer a tener una relaci n seria mientras que Dionne solo quer a sexo.
Me hizo acordar a Until I m yours de Kennedy Ryan porque a las dos protagonistas las juzgan por su trabajo y las tildan de putas y los h roes son re understanding, compa eros, las respetan y cuidan un mont n Y las defienden pero sin caer en eso de ser machitos violentos Una novella corta y entretenida.
5 stars, rounding upTalia Hibbert is taking romance twitter by storm, and I m getting caught up on her backlist since she is writing so much right now The first book of hers I read wasn t entirely my cup of tea but it wasn t because of the writing, and I was pleased that this one held up Short, sexy story about a woman who is looking for redemption from people she hurt or pushed away over the years hence the title Dionne has estranged herself from people as a defense mechanism because she s been judged by her choice of career she s a plus size model, basically but has done nudity I feel like I might have missed what exactly she does There are references to sex work Adam is a sports agent and they meet through their mutual friend, Eli, at Dionne and Eli s school reunion.
This is reallyof a novella length, so it didn t really explore Adam s background and family too much nor was there much resolution with one his brothers who was a jerk to Dionne and I wish the story had gone intodepth about Dionne s past relationships familial, platonic, and romantic in nature for which she was seeking forgiveness But I m giving it a higher rating than I probably would have otherwise because I really liked the heroine a lot I suspect this isn t Hibbert s best, but she s got a lot of talent.
