Embracing Ashberry - Serenity Everton **3.5**

The first half of the book started off strong, but then slowed down for me. There were a few times where the writing made the timeline of the story unclear, which threw me a bit, but it always came back together. The real strength of the story for me was Ashberry, who is possibly the most swoon-worthy hero. At times a bit bossy/controlling, he was more often than not painfully kind, tender and patient with Ellie. It was really very moving. He is really what made the story for me.
