This book felt every one of its 34 years. Dated, aggravating and dramatic – it was also a powerfully weaved story of two jackasses falling in love.
Kit, 18, unloved and wild – travels to New York to sabotage her newly appointed guardian. Thus begins a story that spans over four years and takes us between New York, South Carolina and Texas. Baron, Kit’s guardian, is every bit as stubborn and hurt as Kit. They clash. Again. And again. And again. While their passion is admirable – their propensity for hurting one another isn’t.
Baron lacked the charm of most SEP heroes. And Kit was sassy but rash. I know that us Southerners are considered dramatic, but Kit was a diva even by good ole dirty South standards.
I’m reading everything SEP has written. So I had to read this. Otherwise I wouldn’t have. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t what she writes at her best.
