This story focuses on Evie and Sebastian. They're an unlikely pair as ever found, but there is just enough stubborn independence in Evie to make her capable of bringing it all together. She is a patient, quiet woman with a steel will and is tired of being hurt by her family. Sebastian is a desperate, charming, charismatic, seemingly selfish and heartless rake. He has fallen to his greatest depth, and when he agrees to a marriage of convenience with Evie, he shows every part of him, good and bad, as he tries to get enough money to survive. He's always had a way with women, and being able to charm anyone, able to see other's needs, and it was only the start of what he did for Evie. The two fought, enjoyed heated moments, and learned to worry and care for one another in such a way that you can't help but like them both, but especially Sebastian after seeing what he used to be. Their connection was odd and powerful at first, and grew into something much deeper and more satisfying with time.
Overall, I really loved this book! This story had a fantastic bit of romance, a great redemption story, more bits of friendship that were lovely to see expanded, and two developed characters. The story was engaging and flowed well, and was edited well. I recommend this book, as well as the whole series!
In this book, rather than focusing on social disparities as she has in the past two books in the series, Kleypas examines the relationship between two people of far different temperaments and expectations of life. Interestingly, the reader asks how two such different personalities could possibly make a relationship work. In what ways may they influence each other, and if they change for the other can they still stay true to themselves?
Evie and Sebastian are both endearing characters who you can’t help but root for. The book is fast-paced and introduces some interesting new side characters, while including some from the previous two books as well. It directly follows the events of the second book, It Happened One Autumn, and draws very heavily on many of those events and relationships.
