FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
I forgot just how good this author was and exactly how much I enjoyed book 1. Reading this brought it all back, and I was not disappointed. Rebecca moved to White Oak to care for her old man, who has health issues. Four years later, and she is still there. We get her story now. Weasel is a cop at the White Oak Police department and has wanted Rebecca for years now. He wants a relationship, but she thinks its all just a temporary thing. Will they end up together or will one of them make a mistake?
I loved this story. We met Wild Weasel in book 1 of this series. We got a good in-depth look at him in this story, and he was a welcome surprise. He was a very loveable character. Rebecca was also an amazingly real and loveable character. This story as a whole was written so well. This group of friends and the small town of White Oak, has become written on my heart. I love these stories. They have romance, danger, drama, and friendship. They literally have a little bit of everything. Everything to make you fall in love, that is.
