The archery language is spot on, you get just enough to understand the intricacies of the sport, to make it interesting, but not to overwhelm you with jargon. The passion both MCs have for the sport in their own ways really shines through and I was happy to see that it factored heavily into the HEA.
Both characters enter the storyline carrying hurt from their pasts and Pyland writes about both their own individual journeys, and the journey of their relationship beautifully. The portrait of love and loss is balanced so well I found myself relating easily to both MCs and was rooting for them to get together from an early stage.
Whilst the book is the second in a series, it’s a standalone with regards to characters and storyline, so if you haven’t read the first (you should, it’s also fantastic), don’t let it stop you giving this one a read.
