I thought before I started writing this review that I would do a little experiment and count how many KA books I have read in the last few years and the number is…..33. Thirty-three books by KA have swooped in and stole my heart. Every one of them I have loved. Every one of them has been a ball of fantastic rolled up in absolute wonderfulness.
Let’s just say that Soaring fell into the category of the last thirty-three books of KA’s that I have read. It was amazing. It was actually beyond amazing because Amelia and Mickey were the best of everything together. When Amelia’s ex-husband comes and stirs up trouble within the first few days of her moving into the new house, Mickey is there and steps in…making him the best neighbor (and super sexy!) The moment they got together, they were the best lovers and this doesn’t even begin to describe them accurately. They topped every emotion and level together and went beyond.
What I loved the most about these two characters was that the relationship was a slow build. It wasn’t like those books where the instant they saw each other it become love. Amelia and Mickey’s paths crossed multiple times, and in many different emotions, before they realized what these feelings were. It was a beautiful build of a relationship and it burn of it was spellbinding.
