Eeeeeek!. Another Reed Brothers book I have fallen in love with! This book will make you laugh, swoon, cry and fall in love hard. This is the story of Pete and Reagan
I just wanted to start off by saying that all except book #2 of the Reed Brothers Series can be read as standalones. Tammy has a wonderful way of making sure you can jump into this series when ever you like and go back and forth in the order that pleases you. I chose to read from the beginning. I had heard a lot of great things about Logan and Emily, and so I started there. Starting from this book is also fine. Each Reed brother swoonier than the next!
I guess all you need to know before reading this book is that book #2 left you with Pete being arrested for drug possession with the intent to sell. His brother, Matt, has cancer and Pete and his twin, Sam, were at a desperate time in their lives. Sam got away. Pete has just been released from jail after serving two years.
This is where Calmly, Carefully, Completely begins.
I fucked up things royally two years ago
Reagan and Pete meet by chance just before he was arrested when he saved her from a terrifying situation at a college party. Two years later, Reagan has her father, Pete’s pro bono attorney, ask Pete to come volunteer at a camp for boys that her family runs on their farm in the summer. With Pete’s signing ability (his brother Logan is deaf), Reagan’s dad think’s he will be a valuable asset to the team to assist with the deaf kids at the camp. Pete takes him up on the offer in exchange for leniency on his house arrest.
And this is where Pete and Reagan meet, again.
“You do remember me,” she whispers.
“I think about you all the time, wondering what happened that night after you left.”
Okay, so no more on the storyline. But Pete and Reagan are a wonderful duo. Pete comes across as a bad boy, but really isn’t. He is a wonderful man with a heart of gold and I fell hard for him.
Reagan is a damage girl, and it broke my heart. Her struggles and insecurities were difficult to read about in parts, but only made this story more incredible. Two years ago, Reagan she saw something in Pete. He made her feel safe. She’s not a heroine I would always love, but Tammy just has the perfect way of sculpting the perfect characters to fit each individual situation. Pete and Reagan are perfect for one another. Both with their own battles to face, they work together, they support one another and love each other, calmly, carefully, completely.
“Our situation is messed up for so many reasons that I can’t even think about going there with you. But all I can think about is going there with you.”
These two are amazing. Pete is so incredibly patient and Reagan is one of those girls who can see through the exterior of a person and love them for who they are. This story had more meaning behind it than what it seems like from the outside.
“I’ll be the glue that puts you back together
Tammy Falkner has written a beautiful story about second chances. Both in love and in life. With family and with friends, There is nothing I can fault about this series and is one that I wish everyone would get to reading. It;’s fun, sweet, romantic and terribly addictive and I cannot wait to get stuck into the rest of this series.
“I don’t know how to change.” I laugh
“I wouldn’t change you for anything.”
Bring on more Reed brothers!
