Eone enough to marry them It just doesn t It stinks of neediness and of not wanting to end a comfortable elationship before finding a better oneThough this irked me it wasn t my put down moment I pushed away those feelings and tried to find something to like about Flynn I think I was supposed to like the self sacrificing way she put her own life on hold to take care of her family but actually that annoyed me too I m not wild about martyrs they work for me sometimes but there was something very dishonest about Flynn s martyrdom Well that s obvious her mother wanted to start a knitting store and on her deathbed asked Flynn to start it Flynn can t even knit She lied to her mother for years passing off her sister s work as her own The underlying deceitfulness of the whole thing drove me crazyI didn t like Flynn when she cheated on Bo and she did cheat even if she tried to split hairs about the whole thing She was cheating in her heart for most of those ten years they were together since she never stopped loving Jesse her childhood sweetheart who went to prison for a crime he didn t commit He s out now and as soon as she sees him again she s kissing him Then she has the nerve to get upset at Bo for getting upset with Jesse for kissing his fiance Okay so maybe punching the guy was low but when she flung his ing back at Bo as if the whole thing were HIS fault I had just about had enough of herMy put down moment came when Jesse was accused of another crime Flynn knows he didn t do it because she was intimately involved with him at the time but she doesn t stand up for him because if the town knows she s with Jesse a bad boy they ll think less of her for it That was it I don t know what happened after that so I can t spoil the ending for you but I d eally had enough of the lying cheating deceitful self ighteous little martyr Ha ha this book was NOT about knitting Which I was looking for Wish I liked the characters but alas I did not May contain a spoiler Wow I eally liked this book Good characters sense of place life situations etc One woman has two guys fighting for her one good guy one bad boy This is the case where the bad boy is good while the good guy does some underhanded things to win the heroine s affections Very well played outIf this is part of a series sign me up to ead the next one Oh gracious This was not good It wasn t awful I have definitely ead much worse but it certainly doesn t inspire me to want to pick up other books in the series Flynn was such a martyr the sort of heroine who sublimates everything she wants so that she can take care of others and seemingly wants to be patted on the back for it She is dating the town sheriff and has been for the last ten years And this is where things get eally problematic for meBeau is a psychopath And even if Flynn can t see that he is still a controlling chauvinistic asshole who is throwing out enough ed flags to make even the most clueless and self flagellating heroine un the other way Flynn though just makes excuses and brushes it all aside And I know that this is ealistic behavior for a lot of women in abusive elationships but it was written in such a way as to feel melodrama than anything else Beau did everything short of twirling his mustache and tying Flynn to the ailroad tracksOh fuck I just ealized that this whole book is an attempt at an edgy episode of Dudley Do RightAnd let s not even talk about the narrator Her sad attempts at a Texan accent which were especially unpleasant in the male characters are best never spoken of againThis could have been cute There are some great supporting characters and the idea of a knitting shop above a motorcycle shop had potential Unfortunately the three central characters and their conflicts and actions were too over the top and cartoonish to make the book work. Low knitters have told her to do until Jesse Calloway her bad boy high school sweetheart oars back into to.
