Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
There’s an immediate connection with Blanca and Ethan, from the moment that they meet on the train one Sunday night. The chance meeting has an effect on both of them, so they are both wildly disappointed to discover the next morning that Blanca is Ethan’s new co-worker. Ethan has some commitment issues, some anger issues stemming from his family, so he really waffles on whether or not to even date Blanca. And after lots of mixed signals and hot and cold behavior, Blanca puts him in his place, refusing to be a doormat if he doesn’t want to take a chance.
The little bubble that Ethan and Blanca are living in come crashing down when they discover that the childhood best friend she recently reconnected with and is living with is Ethan’s ex. There’s no breaking of girl code, since Blanca’d never met him and the rest of the crew calls him Sigmund. It all blows up in their faces, of course, when pal Dylan pieces it all together, and there’s a lot of great conversations that come out of the revelation. A lot of honest conversations are had by all three parties.
I really loved how mature they all were about it. I really loved the connection between Ethan and Blanca. Once he got over things and committed to her, he opens up his heart and their connection jumped off the page.
There are some hysterical appearances by Blanca’s older brothers and their women, for fans who read the Blue Collar series, but not enough that I felt lost for not having read those three books. I can’t wait to see what comes next for the Rooftop Crew, expecially Dylan and Rian!! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
