Different as Night and Day
Scott was my world and my future. He loved me so much, making plans for me in the event of his death. He was after all in a war zone and the odds were high he may not come home. But now I can’t help but think about the new man in my life – my husband’s father.
Maguire creates a desire deep inside of me I never knew existed. This is more than lust. I keep on asking myself the same question. Have I fallen in love with him because he’s so much like my late husband or because he’s his own man? Only time will tell.
After all, you can’t choose love, it chooses you
I was really looking forward to the conclusion of the second book Father/Son duet by Leigh Lennon. The ending of the first book left me hanging for answers and I was excited to get started. Although once again the writing was very good this story was a little too slow for me and at times it could be repetitive, I found myself desperately waiting for something to happen.
I loved Maguire in the last book and my feelings didn’t waver in this one. The man is a saint and gorgeous with it and all alpha male, he was the one person that held this book together for me. Although I tried really hard to like Holland before I found her even more irritating in this story. As much as I tried, for the life of me, I couldn’t see what Maguire saw in this woman. She comes across as so immature and ungrateful, always complaining, I ended up feeling really sorry for Maguire and what he had to endure in this relationship of sorts.
The last quarter of this story certainly picked up tremendously but I felt it could have been so much better had it taken place earlier on. For me, in places, it was lacking the passion and the sensuality needed for a taboo romance, it needed a little more angst and some more intimate moments between the two of them. This would have certainly made for a better read.
Different as Night and Day is the second book in Leigh Lennon’s Father/Son duet, and to understand this one you need to have read the first book. Book one, Like Father Like Son, ends on a cliff-hanger, and this second book picks up right where it left off.
I’ll be honest and say I feared the cliff-hanger of an ending in a book one would lead to an overdone storyline, one that would have me rolling my eyes. I was glad when such was not the case, although I’m going, to be honest, and say the story we were given wasn’t quite what I’d been hoping for.
There was certainly a lot packed into this one, many elements were introduced and given, but I failed to connect with any of them. There was too much, in my opinion, and none were given the focus they should have been. One or two of the elements would have been fine, but it felt like a checklist of ways to produce angst, which took away from the romance between the characters.
Not that I’d felt the romance in the first book, and the same was true in this one. I never felt the connection between the two characters, and by the end of this one, I was done with our leading lady. It wasn’t quite the romance I was expecting, leaving me disappointed.
I think this is another one of those ‘it’s me, not the book’ cases. I’m sure many will enjoy this duet, but it didn’t do for me what I’d been hoping for.
