Petrocelli and Emily Keating used to have it all: two
beautiful children, a baby on the way, and what seemed to be a
perfect marriage. Underneath the veneer, however, all was not
well. A terrible tragedy tore them apart, and Emily told
Simon never to contact her again. Now Simon has caught the
man who ruined their lives, and he wants Emily back. Is it
too late for them?
Too Late seemed like the beginning of a good story.
Simon and Emily had both made terrible, heartbreaking
mistakes, and both blamed themselves for the destruction of
their family. When they met again, their reunion was both hot
and emotional. I liked both characters and wanted them to be
able to stay together. After they got together initially, a
couple of conflicts were hinted at but never followed up on.
I was expecting some sort of issue to make their reunion more
difficult, but the conflict never really materialized. While
I enjoyed Never Too Late, I felt like Caitlyn
Willows could have given me a more emotionally satisfying
ending by throwing a few problems in their path. Nonetheless,
if you like stories of lovers reunited after a terrible
tragedy, youíll probably like Never Too Late.
is book 5 of a series. While I havenít read most of the other
books in the series and understood this one well enough, it
would probably be better to read the other books before this
one (especially book 4, as Simon is a character in it).*
