Series Review: Don't Deny Me by Megan Hart

This series is great for weekend reading--once you start it, you will want to finish it. Here's a brief review of each book:

In part one, I felt myself immediately sink into the story--it reminded me of The Big Chill minus the death of a friend. There was a familiarity between the characters and a sense of longing and nostalgia that pervaded the space between the words. This first part introduced us to the most recent past of Alice and Mick and gave us the angsty moments of their first meeting in ten years, their sexual encounters, and a ton of questions about their anger, remorse, and all of the things unsaid. 

Between each section were letters that the characters sent each other (or didn't) and I loved that Hart put these in. 

Part one--gave me a ton to think about and hope for what would come in the next two parts.

Megan Hart. You made me crazy with Mick. How can he be so clueless?! UGH. I seriously wanted to smack him around and force him to have uncomfortable conversations. Thank god for his sister, Mary. Dude. She laid down the truth in the best way and HE STILL DIDN'T take it to heart. GAH. 


Alice wasn't perfect but I loved how honest and open she was; she'd willingly put herself out there and confront issues or explain how she was feeling, even after he didn't respond the way most people would want. If anything, she gave him more chances than I think I would have. Kudos to her. 

Side Note: I loved what a good friend Alice was to Jay. 

So the moral to part 2 is that Mick was a dick wad. (And the letters between the two are still in the series and really great).

In part 3, we get the complete picture--we know what's happened in the past and we're back to their present. Mick had moments when I felt he'd redeemed himself and moments when I just had to scratch my head and wonder how ... w... could he STILL be so clueless. Alice remained consistently Alice--she was strong and vulnerable and fairly up front about things, for the most part. 

These two just had the worst time communicating in a way that made sense to the other and it frequently mucked things up for them. But their letters...their letters were perfect.

The end came to fast and I suppose if there's any flaw with this series is that because these are novellas they weren't always as fleshed out as I'd like. That being said, the writing was great, the chemistry between the characters was hot, and the story was an interesting take on the 'second chance at romance' theme.
