Review of Facing West.
There are not enough stars for this gorgeous marriage of passion and emotion that will certainly leave you with that wonderful loving feeling! Story 5*, Emotion 5*, and Sizzle a scorching 5*.
Lucy Lennox, again provides wonderful entertainment with her first in a new series, Facing West: The Forever Wilde series. This is a brand new series, yet linked to the well-loved, best-selling Made Marian series. This is the story of Griffin’s best friend Nico and a story you will want to prioritize on your TBR list after you one-click this link. Amazon.
Tattoo artist, Nico Salerno receives notification that his sister, who he hasn’t seen in 15 years has died, leaving him guardianship of his 4-month-old niece. He has no intention of ever leaving San Francisco to return to his hometown of Hobie Texas but things change and he needs to return home to say goodbye to his sister and make arrangements for his niece. When Nico discovers that the baby is currently being cared for by his former classmate who has evidently become his sister’s best friend, Dr. Weston Wilde, he can’t imagine why his mother isn’t caring for the baby. So much has changed since Nico Left Texas.
On his return to his hometown, Nico certainly doesn’t receive the welcome one might anticipate for the sibling of the deceased young woman. He wasn’t the most malleable teen and people remember him for his minor misdeeds. What West sees and his opinion are at definite odds as the man he sees is, ‘even in his grief, more beautiful than any human being he’d ever seen close up’, despite or perhaps because of his colorful hair, body art, and piercings, lip rings etc. West still doesn’t understand what caused Nico to abandon his sister and mother when he was only 15 and he isn’t about to let him hurt baby Pippa.
The interesting, handsome and caring Dr. Wilde causes salacious thoughts and pushes all of Nico’s buttons but Nico has never had a serious boyfriend and he isn’t about to start now.
There are times when this story becomes very intense and emotional and then the author hits us with one of her trademark zingers causing the reader to laugh out loud. Descriptions of intimate moments are so precious that you, the reader, share the experience, the intensity, the frenzy, and the emotion. “Shhh, it’s okay. Let me in, baby. Please.” Oh, my!
I so enjoyed hearing again from some of my friends from the Made Marian Series; Griffin and Sam and of course, Mom Marian. Mentions of the bar, Harry Dicks’ brings back wonderful Marian memories.
