Friendship would always be one of the strongest foundations of relationship. This is why this plot is one of my favorites.
Confronting her past.
Maggie was ready to face her past head-on. Finally, after more than a year, she went back home to Chicago and was ready to put her future together without the past hovering over her back. She asked for a job in the family bar which didn’t really go well with her family. This is the bar where the incident happened, and her family wasn’t sure that being there would be wise. It was a good thing that Shane, her best friend, supported her.
How can she not know?
They were best friends, and he was always there for her. Everyone knew, her family knew how deep his feelings run for her – HOW CAN SHE NOT KNOW?! How can she not feel that he was head over heels in love with her?
Coming back from Ireland, Shane is determined to keep Maggie safe and keep her home for good this time. Even if it means he was working hard than usual and giving up sleep during her working hours at the bar.
When Maggie asks him that she needs more than a loyal friend now, and it involves a bed (or not) and exchanging of body fluids – would Shane agree? Would he risk his heart and take the leap?
He was willing to do anything, sacrifice things and adjust his life for her. Who wouldn’t swoon over this guy? I wished he had more courage to tell her how he felt about her right from the start though.
They had the best friendship, and I love their easy banters – which just proves how close and comfortable they are with each other. No wonder Maggie chose Shane.
I think Maggie is one of the strongest people I encountered in the fiction world. What happened to her was no joke, it was devastating. But she was ready to face it this time, and it was helpful she had Shane and the rest of her family backing her up. Putting her past totally behind her wasn’t easy, there were a lot of obstacles, but I was glad it was there – I saw Maggie’s character developed as the story progressed.
Every survivor has her story to tell, this is Maggie’s and I’m glad she had her happy ending.
