Review:4 Solid Stars
Allie lost her mother 6 months ago, but she's been taking care of her two sisters, her father and their house ever since her mother fell ill 5 years ago. Her life was put on hold while she took care of everyone else. Until one day she finds that although her father has been unable to make any decisions regarding his children, he has made decisions with his business that has allowed it to be run into the ground and them to lose their house. Allie just can't let it happen, at any cost she will make sure her sisters and father don't lose the only thing they have left.
Trevor Blake is a used to buying and selling things, loaning money to businesses that should help him make a profit off his investments. He isn't used to a someone willing to literally do anything for their family since his is such a mess. He puts up offer after offer to Allie hoping it'll make her back down but she agrees to nearly any terms he makes. Including being there for his every need.
I found this book to be quite interesting. I loved Allie's character especially as she developed through the story from the daughter who does everything for her family to the woman in love and going after what she needs in life. Trevor was frustrating at times, but I still found him highly amusing as he tried to understand this colorful and lively woman that lives with him.
I did find that there was a LOT of British terminology that was used while in Allie's POV, which didn't work for me since she was supposed to be American and wouldn't have used such terms when thinking or speaking. I also didn't care for her dad and his quick change towards the end and that Allie was just okay with it. I would have been rip roaring mad for a heck of a lot longer, but maybe that's just me after everything she went through.
All in all, I loved it and can't wait for the next one to see where their story goes from here.
