Book 1 is definitely my favorite of the series, but this was a close second! This story was so soft and precious. I adored these characters and the life they created for themselves.
I was a little nervous going into this one because I had no idea how Cat Sebastian was going to redeem Martin. While he wasn’t an awful person in the first 2, he definitely wasn’t very likable. I love how his character and motivations were slowly revealed throughout this story. I though he went through a fantastic character arc and I grew to really love his pov.
Martin is such a precious character I would protect him with my life. I am still a little disappointed that we never got a good look at what happened to him in the past. His backstory intrigued me the most out of the brothers and I didn’t feel it was explained very clearly. It’s hinted at and we catch small glimpses throughout the series, but it’s never explained in detail. Which I think would have brought a lot to his character since we see the aftermath of the events through the entire series.
I think my favorite thing about this series and Cat Sebastian’s books in general, is the way she handles topics I don’t otherwise see in historical romances. This one in particular touched on chronic illness, mental illness, and addiction.
Overall I really enjoyed this third book in the series! I loved how sweet these characters were and how their relationship was based on friendship. I loved the slow burn of their romance and seeing them slowly open up to each other. I can’t wait to see pick up whatever Cat Sebastian writes next!
