Review: OMG I love Mia Sheridan, but you all already knew that. This book just solidifies it even more. Ramsay is based on the zodiac’s fire sign, ARIES, and it’s all about revenge baby! I could relate completely considering I, myself, am an Aries. We get mad AND we get even. Brogan Ramsay, the title character, works for Lydia DeHavilland’s family helping his father who is their gardener. Brogan, of course, admires the girl from afar but knows that the status difference is a big deal.
Yes, Lydia was a princess, but when she smiled at me, my heart did somersaults in my chest. ~Brogan
The story is told in both POVs, which I love because it leaves nothing to the imagination. You know what each character is thinking and the motivation behind their actions. The story starts when Lydia and Brogan are 16/17 years old and then skips a few years to 24/25. Brogan is amazing. I love how he feels and the black and white way his mind works. He doesn’t “do” emotion well and reading him struggle with trying to figure it all out is good. I would’ve liked a little more explanation to his sensory overload issue but overall he was a great character. Lydia, not so much, I liked her enough but I felt like she was too wishy-washy for my liking. I like stronger female leads but she definitely served her purpose, I didn’t hate her. That’s always a good thing. Anywho, Brogan has a buddy named Fionn (yup they’re both Irish boys with hot accents) whom I kept calling Finn because every time I tried to pronounce it I wanted to say Fionna instead of Fionn which made me think of Shrek and I am so getting off topic…sorry guys. Yeah, so Fionn was a great supporting character along with Brogan’s sister Eileen they balanced Brogan’s crazy out.
I give this book 4.5 stars. I loved it but felt like I needed just a little more Brogan details.
Blurb: Lydia De Havilland is shocked when Brogan Ramsay suddenly reappears in her life. Several years before, Brogan was the son of her family’s gardener, and the boy she hurt and betrayed. But Brogan is no longer the quiet, sensitive boy she remembers. Now he’s a man—gorgeous, powerful . . . and seeking vengeance.
Brogan Ramsay can’t let go of the memory of Lydia tricking him cruelly, leaving his heart shattered and his family penniless. And now he’s back to destroy her family the way his was destroyed. There’s only one problem . . . the girl who wounded him so badly years ago is now a woman who still has the power to render him breathless.
Ramsay is the story of betrayal and wrath, of the strength of regret and the power of forgiveness. It is the story of the thin veil between love and hate, and how more often than not, when we seek to inflict pain on others, the heart we wound is our own.
