Almost doesn’t count for Carter and Sophie.
The second book – a standalone! – in Danielle Norman’s Iron Orchids Series is AVAILABLE NOW!
Some people are unforgettable.
Like, the first sheriff that pulled you over for speeding.
The first person to kiss you senseless on the hood of a car.
And, the first guy to make you orgasm.
But, when all of those things are from the same man; let’s just say unforgettable doesn’t even come close.
I wonder if he ever thinks about me and everything we ALMOST had.
Oh, he remembers and he’s prepared to put his money where his mouth is…
Danielle is a Harley riding romance writer. Most days she can be found in jeans, t-shirts, and pearls (she’s a lady like that).

And her talent is the ability to tell the difference between a rye, wheat, corn, or potato vodka in just 1 sip, but she prefers a few glasses just to be certain.

3 ‘Well the whole book was rather convenient don’t ya think?’ Stars.
My believability muscle nearly snapped on this one.
I’m not entirely sure how to rate this book. I like the author’s style but it was all too smooth. But the author sure does know how to keep you entertained. But if you look closely and past the entertainment factor there are I’m afraid to say some things that don’t make sense
After reading the prologue which I thought was completely unnecessary. I was wondering how it was relevant to the story of Carter and Sophie. I then had an epiphany and it clicked which means I had another 26 chapters to go waiting for the shite to hit the fan. When it finally happened it, all felt so rushed. I’m surprised about the time span anyway if I’m being honest. In a blink of an eye it was all done and dusted. Yes, they met when they younger, yaddy yah. So I’m most likely being a nitpicker.
After a week they were practically living together and even if they were soulmates. A lot happens in ten years. But maybe I’m just being cynical. I was annoyed by Sophie not giving Carter a chance to explain and then she turned into a zombie had no understanding there. Carter, you had years to get your act together and you didn’t. Maybe a note could have been left as to why the circumstances led to the twist at the end. Carter is a good Hero IMO although he was a bit of an arse at the beginning. He really tried with Sophie.
What also bothered me and I swear, I swear a lot is and although I swear I’ve never used what Sophie has used cause for me personally that is what a typical bloke would say and not a lady with a dirty mouth.
What was Sophie’s constant reason for running? Why didn’t she tell her family her secret? They are Greek and tight knit and are all up in everyone’s business, so never in the ten years that they were in Cali did they go out there to find out?
All in all, an enjoyable read. A lot could have been fleshed out and developed more. As it comes across as being a bit fluffy and that could have been avoided.
P.S. I know the author is new to this genre so I’m trying to cut some slack here but book 1 was really good and I think the author kinda lost her way on this one. Please if you are alpha/beta readers than tell the author if there are things to amend. Just don’t say that is great well done cause things could have been done differently.
