Rocking Danni by Kacey Hamford
New to the series, I read this and treated it like a standalone and I don’t feel I missed out for taking that decision.
I will now, go back and start at the beginning because there is a sea of engaging characters in the book that I need to know more about and the only way I can do that is by immersing myself in their stories.
Danni is all but trapped in a violent and abusive relationship with Josh and while it initially seemed as though she had met her man, things turned nasty and he has now shown his true colours. Real men do not treat their women this way and while she realises that she needs to get away, her limited resources and isolation mean that she honestly believes she had no way out.
My heart broke for her and the torment she must have felt, and with a three year old daughter to care for she was mindful that her daughter came first, what I think she failed to understand was that allowing the abuse and degradation to continue was eroding the woman that she needed to be for her child – it was whittling away her self-respect and Josh had no right to do that to her, she was worth more than that!
And I am not alone in sharing that sentiment because while she is working at the pub, she bumps back into Will, he is back from the bands tour in American and he doesn’t like what he sees or hears with regards to what Danni is going through. He still has feelings for her and he is not prepared to stand by idly and let Josh treat her this way.
They danced around each other a little too much for my liking and at times I was ready to hurl the kindle across the room, I mean she had a guy who was willing to lay it all before her and she was still dithering – get a grip woman!!!
But like me you will fall in love with Will he is the most a glorious character, secrets revealed but yet he stands resolute in the fact that he wants Danni and will do whatever it takes to make her his.
