I have a home run with Samantha’s books 🙂 4 for 4 now! So when Sam told me she was writing another book i instantly thought “Oh, another Butterfly book!” How wrong was i!?
We first meet Mr Peters in the Butterfly books, not that you have to have read them to read this. So i knew what kind of guy i was getting involved with when i picked my kindle up. It reads completely different from Sam’s other books, is this a bad thing i hear you ask? Not completely, No. Once you get your head round reading from a blokes bloke POV then this book is addictive!
I did struggle with the first chapter or so, not knowing anything about the army, missions, not to mention i totally suck at locations, just ask my other half about that…….. in fact, don’t!!
So the army aside, OMG! My first few messages to Sam, yep, I’m one of those readers…… read, message, react….. and might i add poor Sam got a LOT of these messages! In fact I’m surprised she hasn’t blocked me on Facebook lol
“OMFG poor Duncan! Spends all that time getting back to his loving wife to discover that! What a total b***h!!”
“You have to be kidding me! You can’t do THAT!”
“OK, just spat my drink across the room!”
These are just a few of my messages 😛
So back to my review. The story revolves around Duncan Peters and his BFF Rubin Miller *swoon* These two blokes do everything together, and i mean EVERYTHING! They have each others back in the army and in the real world, in fact there’s not a single thing they won’t do for each other. It was nice to see this from two blokes, you saw the tough guy parts and the more sensitive sides too. You get to experience their joys in life *cried* as well as the heartbreaking moments that they experience *cried and kindle had to spend time in the freezer* you wouldn’t wish these things on anyone. To say Sam hit the emotional nail on the head would be an understatement……I’m yet to pick my kindle back up after reading this, and that is sooo not like me
This book is very fast paced. It has hold your breath moments, I can’t believe they just did THAT moments, laugh out loud moments as well as sob your freakin heart out moments! In fact i woke my other half up SOBBING in the middle of the night…… you know what I’m on about Ms Fontien!!!!! Its a roller coaster for the emotions that’s for sure.
I enjoyed this book far more than i thought i would, what with the whole army spin. I’m a little sad that it had to come to an end with just one book 😦 but i can see why Sam decided to do it this way. I will miss Duncan and Rubin, and looking for those picture quote pics for you Sam…. But all good things must come to an end.
That just leaves me for the whole golden apples part,
I will leave you with my most favorite quote from the book, and YES, this really happens 😉
I’m a Happily Married,MUM of 2 very loved children One has just turned into a teenager so far (fingers crossed) a great one. I LOVE Music, I am the daughter of Musicians, I was reared with a Guitar in one hand and a pen in the other.
