I have been waiting for Sam’s story since I began this series! I was absolutely NOT disappointed!
They call us the Firework Girls.
I’m Sam. Let’s get one thing straight. Marriage is fine for some people, but it’s got nothing to do with me. If you knew the truth about my past, believe me, you’d understand.
But hey, I’m not complaining. I’ve got a good job. Great friends. And when I need a little something in the man department, well… I’ve never had any trouble getting that when I want it either.
Then Jack has to come along and screw it all up.
I never saw it coming. I mean, we’ve been friends for six years. Years. But in one moment… one gooseflesh-inducing, world tilting, alarming moment… it all starts to change.
Let me tell you something, the last thing in the world I wanted to do was freaking fall in love. But that Jack snuck right under my radar.
I’m not too happy about it either.
Not one damn bit.
I have been waiting for Sam’s story! I have been sitting on a hunch for quite some time now, and I am so eager to see if it plays out! Sam is a character I can heartily identify with, as her father had traits similar to mine, and her relationship worries resembled mine as well. She is so independent and opinionated! And I’m not ashamed to say that she is my favorite ❤
Jack has been there through it all. He’s been the best friend, the big brother, and the protector-but never the lover. After spending his time with women who aren’t quite made to last in a relationship, he’s finding there’s something to be said for having just …
someone. Unfortunately, he’s finding that those feelings developing aren’t being returned.
So much of this story begins on the basis of miscommunication because NOBODY JUST SAYS HOW THEY FEEL! Argh! It’s so aggravating to watch the characters go through their pain knowing they could prevent it! But it is so reminiscent of real life and how we are all afraid of saying too much.
As the story continued, I got a much better glimpse into Sam’s past. This is the part where I felt a bit was lacking. I wish this issue could have been more distinctly resolved. As a reader, I kind of assumed the general idea of what happened, but didn’t get to actually read it. It didn’t take much away from the story, though, and sometimes authors don’t choose to make the same choices I would. Overall, though, this was a fantastic story and I thoroughly enjoyed.
