Buddy read 7/22 - Thanks, guys!
First, let me say how much I enjoyed this slow buildup telephonic romance. It was very different from any other I've read, and I loved how they got to know each other and rely on their conversations. It did take a wee bit of getting used to, but I ended up not minding them at all. I did get a smidgen frustrated with Riley's insistence on Cam never seeing him, but I really enjoyed the way they found ways around that via the telephone dates. One of my favorite scenes was the movie theater date which was just super sweet and had me holding my breath.
I never would have thought I would enjoy reading so many phone sex scenes! But, each one had such a different feel, and you could tell how much they were feeling about each other. I was thrilled when Riley finally gave in to the first one.
I was sad that we never really got the details behind Riley's scarring, other than that he was in a fire. I was hoping he would have explained some of it to Cam at one point or another. There are a lot of sweet moments in this story, and the ending is no exception. While I enjoyed the scene itself, after the way the rest of the story was drawn out, the way it ended just seemed a little abrupt.
I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what direction the next book takes and how Riley and Cam are doing.
