Playing the Field (Duty & Desire, #4)
Ok… I’m just going to jump right into my review.
I’m not going to lie… this book was not what I was expecting.
I was kind of confused when I started to read this book. I had to go back and read my review for Boots Beneath My Bed and I had to reread the ending of the book too.
Because, I thought at the end of that book Jace and Miranda were already together.
But…. At the start of this book… He’s single.
I thought this book would have picked up right where the ending of the last book left off. But… we don’t. This book was a POV book.
We get a retelling of Jace and Miranda’s story. The dating and how they finally get together from Jace’s POV.
It was interesting hearing things from Jace’s POV. I don’t remember him battling demons in the last book. His nightly nightmares were pretty bad.
He went through a lot when he was deployed on his last tour.
But… I did feel his POV went on a little too long. We don’t get new stuff until 62% in.
Don’t get me wrong. I thought it was ok to read Jace’s POV.
But, I was just really looking forward to reading more new stuff about everyone.
For me personally… I would have rather jumped right into the story. Right after their honeymoon or maybe a year after the wedding.
I really wanted more… Cara and Riley. Since the series started with them… I was kind of hoping we would get way more of them.
But, What little we did get of them.. I totally devoured it. The ending of the book just warmed my heart! and I was truly happy for Cara and Riley.
Overall… I liked his book. I just felt the beginning of the book wasn’t really necessary. I wish the story would have just picked up right when the last book left off. And I think the synopsis should say that this book was mostly a POV book from Boot’s Beneath My Bed. Because, there is only 38% of new stuff. And…That 38% felt kind of rushed.
I’m happy that everyone got their HEA.
