Posey Osterhagen can’t complain. She owns a successful architectural salvaging company, she’s surrounded by her lovable, if off-center, family and she has a boyfriend – sort of. Something tall, brooding and criminally good-looking; something like Liam Murphy.
When Posey was sixteen, the bad boy of Bellsford, New Hampshire, broke her heart.

Lists with This Book. In fact, Kristan Higgins failed to convince me these two belonged together or that Liam could ever love Posey somewhere deep down in his soul. Anything to get her kristsn see she deserved so much more than what she was putting up with. I was hoping to see some growth, over the course of the story, but Posey pretty much remained a doormat the entire way through. A life lesson on valuing ones-self, this book does not provide.
In steps Liam, the bad boy returning to town after years away, and she basically falls at his feet. Apparently all of that hurt was easily brushed aside llegaaste his gorgeous face was in front of hers and he actually managed to mutter a few words, out loud and directly to her, albeit grudgingly, in the beginning.
That was all it took for her to throw herself at him. He checked all of the requisite boxes to be considered book boyfriend material leather jacket wearing, motorcycle riding, kitten rescuing–brooding hottiebut some of his insensitive thoughts about Posey rubbed me the wrong way and I never fully recovered.
Liam had somewhat of an ego, but it was more than that.
Hasta Que Llegaste
On some level, he projected this attitude that he was too good for Posey, like it would be all too easy to let her go and never look back. View all 18 comments. Aug 17, Dinjolina rated it did not like it Shelves: Imagine yourself as a heroine. What kind of hero would you wish for?
How about one that overlooked you and your love as a kid, ruined your social life in a stupid attempt to help you in a 4 minute time span that he could divulge to you and then forget you even lived for the next 15 years? Hjggins about one that leaves you at every turn because he hides behind parenting his child?
How about one that is so hooked up on his dead wife that this child is almost a bizarre extension of what he had with her? How Imagine yourself as a heroine. How about one that dreams about said wife five pages before your HEA while sniffing her pearls and so on?
How about one that goes and does a very lame ‘i love you singing scene’ only after his daughter said she has nothing against you in his life? How about one that inserts an ‘When my kid is ready’ clause even in his oh-so-romantic proposal of marriage 2 pages till the finale? You want this hero? The hero that loved the moronic wife even thou she loved him for like 5 minutes only and he did not even mind and still panted over her for close to 20 years? The one that on the other hand treats you like a commodity, like trash, like nothing worth wile, and most importantly like second best to everything else in his life?
Then by all means, have him. But do not make me imagine your HEA. I don’t think I can handle the emotional abuse you are going to go trough. This book was given to me at NetGalley.

I liked her a lot, don’t get me wrong, but her unwillingness to stand up for herself started to grate on my nerves. I kept waiting for her to stop being everyones doormat, unfortunately that never happened. Plus, I wasn’t able to fully accept or believe in the supposed feelings the hero had for the heroine.
I felt his feelings for her never compared to his feelings for his deceased wife. In fact, the book seemed to focus more on his feelings for his wife than his feelings for the heroine. Making the ending, while a sweet HEA, somewhat hollow and anticlimactic. View all 4 comments. Aug 30, willaful rated it liked it Recommends it for: Once upon a time, the school bad boy married the school good girl and they moved away to live happily ever after… leaving Posey, the school flat-chested girl, brokenhearted.
Ludicrously overprotective and anxious about his daughter, Liam finds that being with Posey is unexpectedly comfortable and relaxing First the good. This aspect of the book is well-drawn, with tenderness and realism.
Something that might find new meaning, new beauty, if given the right home.
So — what goes wrong? Part of it is Posey: And I found it unsatisfying that Liam so easily gets anything he wants; Posey barely seems to hold a grudge for something extremely hurtful he once did, view spoiler [I guessed that he had a good reason and he did, but even so, there could have been more emotion around this point. He always gets to be the one running the show. E-arc provided for review by netGalley. View all 8 comments.

She can write about family, love, heartbreak, and all their complications like nobody’s business. Because that’s what you do. Mar 19, Didi rated it really liked it Shelves: This was a little different from the usual KH fare. There was a third person POV from the hero! Aside from the Blue Heron series as of late, books were told in the first person.
But here, she gave us a sample of what she’s now doing with Blue Heron, and I love it. Getting into the mind of the hero is perfect for connecting with him, understanding his motives, thoughts etc. I really liked this, Posey was a sweet but passed over typ This was a little different from the usual KH fare. I really liked this, Posey was a sweet but passed over type of woman.
Never beautiful enough, too skinny, short, unremarkable. But has anyone ever looked close enough? She’s adopted and so is her brother but she’s never been made to feel anything but a cherished daughter. And really, everything was fine until high school, until prom, where she was humiliated, laughed at and had her heart broken by the boy she tragically crushed on, 18 odd years ago. That boy, the bad but oh, so good Liam Declan Murphy, is back in town.
He’s a widow with a 15 year old daughter, but aside from his looks the man resembles nothing of the reckless boy he once was. I loved Liam, and understood his situation with Posey.
I think the set up was very realistic, a man widowed, trying to do right by his daughter, trying to stay focused on providing a safe environment. If he had rushed off and proclaimed love for Posey early on, or gave in to his restrained feelings without thought it would have seemed cliche. He held back a lot with Posey but showed enough that she believed him to care deeply. I think in real life this would have played out the same.
His daughter was the best thing to happen to him and her acceptance or permission for Posey was obviously founded. There were many emotional and angsty moments, I cried a lot! Posey had trouble standing up for herself but as the book progressed she did as well and came into some much needed confidence. Loved Liam’s POV, his concern for his daughter, his insecurity of being good enough for Posey, his regrets The ending was beautiful as well as the epilogue, and of course the cast of secondary characters was perfect.
