Cherry Girl The Blackstone Affair #3 5Ng her how hard it is to let go Real life doesn’t have anything on romantic dreams though as these two have learned over and over again It sucks big time leaving painful scars in its wake But Neil isn’t giving up He’s a soldier who has endured years. This is the story of Neil Ethan Blackstone's colleaguefriend and how he and Elaina came to be This book was awful and I abandoned it at 31% No I didn't finish it but I paid for it and I'm entitled to my review whether it's finished or notThe reasons I abandoned it1 Neil was such a girl His thoughts were so girly and so far removed from the British Army captain who had done several tours of Afghanistan that I would have expected One such thought was when they were just about to have sex She'd given me the most beautiful gift Bleugh NO MAN in the whole world thinks this before they have sex A woman maybe And the one and only sex scene I did read was lacklustre at best2 This book is set in London with English characters yet some Americanisms leaked through Such as ending sentences with I guess and setting up the coffeemaker for the next morning 3 I was surprised by the amount of punctuation errors within this book at least one every few pages Not acceptable for a New York Times Bestselling author4 'Cherry coloured hair' Really Does this natural hair colour really exist I hunted high and low for a picture that looked somewhat natural but to little avail And then at 31% when Neil went down on Elaina's 'uim' what century is that from and discovered a strip of cherry coloured hair that was it abandon shipI really didn't enjoy Eyes Wide Open and thought I'd take a chance that this might redeem the series for me but unfortunately not

Elaina Morrison has loved Neil McManus her whole life She doesn’t remember a time when she didn’t love him Through heartbreaking tragedy and years of separation her love holds trueuntil life stomps all over her heart shattering her perfect dream teachi. 45 second chance at love starsWe met Neil Elaina in the Blackstone Affair I had to reach back into my memory for a few seconds to remember Elaina's character but remembered Neil fondly as Ethan's right hand man This is their story of a second chance at love Elaina was just ten years old when she met the seventeen year old Neil She fell in love with him that day across the dinner table Neil's family life is not an ideal one allowing him to be brought into the welcoming arms of the Morrison family Elaina spends her youth longing for the boy that she thinks will always see her as only her brother Ian's little sister But while on leave from the military Neil returns to find an eighteen year old Elaina and he's not going to wait one moment to claim her heart The weeks they get before he is deployed for his last stretch of service are spent wrapped in each other's arms But before he leaves a bomb is dropped that causes his Cherry Girl to run What once was just ten months of separation while deployed turns into six years of longingWhen Elaina takes a job for Blackstone she had no idea that her past was going to come crashing down on her Now with Neil part of her every day life the truth as to what tore them apart if finally going to come out And with that truth comes the reality that these two never stopped loving each other This story contained two of my favorite themes in a romance Second chance love and falling in love with your older brother's best friend Raine Miller did a beautiful job giving us the history between these two characters I did pop a bit for the reappearance of Ethan in a few scenes but I am glad that he remained as background noise letting the focus remain solely on these two Although Neil was not uite as alpha as I would have expected I found it so endearing to see the vulnerability that came with losing the woman he loved His entire life was about losing something he loved and being rejected in the aftermath His only family was found while in the walls of the Morrison home and with his brothers in the midst of war Elaina's initial reaction and reason for running left me a little pissed off though I had chalked it up to being just eighteen and immature and was surprised to find that even six years later she still held true to her reasons I had partially hoped that even when the truth came out that she would have realized that nothing even what she originally thought to be the truth could have kept them apart This was a great addition to TBA series and I can't wait to see what Raine Miller has in store for us with Rare and Precious Things

can’t afford to lose on any level Neil McManus is going in fighting to make Elaina see what he already knows That she will forever be his Cherry Girl. 4 dreamy second chance starsIf you’ve read the Blackstone Affair books then you will already know about Neil and Elaina Neil is the best friend of Ethan Blackstone and his relationship with Elaina is touched on in that series Here we get the full story and I absolutely loved it It’s a beautiful second chance romance with lots of feels a bit of angst and a whole lot of swoon and steamy time “I love you Elaina Morrison and you’ll always be my Cherry Girl Always Nothing will change it for me” He leaned forward and kissed me sweetly whispering “Believe me” Neil and Elaina met when he was 17 and she was 10 and her older brother brought him home for dinner She was captivated by him on the spot and he very uickly became a part of her family calling her “ Cherry Girl” and always being there to look out for her Years later and Neil is a solder serving overseas and Elaina’s world has been turned upside down by tragedy and she has descended into a wild life Her love for Neil still burns bright but it’s not until she is 18 and he is home from deployment in Afghanistan when he swoops in to save her once again and tells her that he feels the same “You’ve been waiting”“I have” He leaned in toward my lips but didn’t touch them “Waiting and waiting forever For you Waiting for you to grow up Waiting for you to see me as something than just a friend of Ian’s Waiting for the right time to tell you how I feel about you” He whispered so close I could feel the brush of breath from his beautiful words “Just a very long time of waiting Elaina” “I don’t want to wait any” His eyes melded into me and held on “Please don’t make me wait for you any longer” he pleaded “I can’t do it Cherry I just can’t” Neil and Elaina’s relationship is an absolute swoon fest They are so completely in love and the close relationship that they have shared over the years becomes something incredibly special as they embark on a blissfully romantic and steamy love affair both acknowledging that they have found ‘the one’ It was good We were so good“Is this all right” I asked herShe nodded back “Love me”“I do I will Always” But they are torn apart just as Neil is set to return to the war and their devastation sends them in different directions which keep them separate for long years The moment when they see each other again is absolutely sensational and it is becomes instantly clear that all of the feelings they had for each other are still there and the rollercoaster of emotions is beautifully expressed There’s a lot that they have to sort through and I loved Neil’s determination as he sets about reclaiming his girl while still allowing her time to sort through what she’s feeling But neither of them can deny that their attraction is hotter than ever and once they give into it just like before their love and passion for each other is both swoony and blisteringly hot “I want this Cherry I want this mouth screaming my name when I’m inside you and you’re about to come I want you in my bed so we can fuck all night longover and over until you’re a slave to it – just as you used to be” I love second chance romance books I’m always intrigued to see how a couple in love can be torn apart and how they overcome their past to come back together In this case the separation is so freaking frustrating It could have been so easily overcome and I was so pissed at Elaina then at Neil The whole thing could have been avoided if they just talked to each other But Raine Miller has done a fantastic job with their reunion Once they see each other again and the truth about the past is finally revealed the guilt and devastation that they both feel is heartbreaking They acknowledge how easily and stupidly they let go of each other and they both totally own it but they put it behind them in order to build a future together and it was exactly what I wanted to see “You don’t have to worry any babe I know I hurt you badly and I own up to what I did to you by leaving like that” I put my hand on his face “But I’ll always come back to you I love you and I can’t live without you There is nothing that will ever keep me from my man again I’ll always come back to you Promise” The story is told in dual POV letting us experience all of the feels right alongside Neil and Elaina and I fell in complete and total love with Neil Such a strong alpha type guy but so vulnerable gentle when he needs to be and beautifully in love dreamy sigh Their story is an emotional ride and angsty at times but it’s beautifully told with lots of sexy time lots of heart and a beautifully happy ending This little book really surprised me I wasn’t expecting to love it as much as I did but I was very uickly sucked in I actually connected with Neil and Elaina’s story than I did with Ethan and Brynne’s While technically it does form part of the Blackstone series it could easily be read as a standalone and I’m looking forward to their continuation of their story in My CaptainLoved it – 4 stars
