This is the third book in Penny Reid‘s Knitting in the City series that follows the love life of Sandy and Alex. Sandy has been a great character from the first two books that can always make you laugh with her funny and insightful comments. Her character can be very blunt and vulgar at times that you don’t think of her as a psychiatrist or having issues with dating. She’s a confident woman that should have no issues with men.
Alex is not the typical leading man, and I’m still not sure if I like his character. I understand why he’s so paranoid and secretive, but it’s a bit too conspiracy theory for me. It seemed like he was a safe way of adding a bad boy to the cast of characters without adding in a tattooed/biker/law breaker that would be too different from the others. Their story is more opposites attract then the others, which is a nice change of pace for the series. I did like that he’s younger and that the age difference wasn’t a drawback to their romance.
I recommend reading this as part of the series, but it works as a stand alone as well. This was a good read and another hit from the series.
