After their troubled pasts and their rocky road to “happily ever after,” the time has come for Jordan Waters and Sebastian Sumner to officially declare their love for each other. With the wedding two days before Christmas, the happy couple can’t put off addressing their tenuous relationships with their birth families. Between supportive friends like Jack Waters, Kevin Thompson, Bro Sumner, and Lacey Adair, they’ve had a taste of what a happy home means, regardless of blood ties. As the wedding approaches, all three couples must make peace with their pasts as they prepare to celebrate friendship, brotherhood, and true love.
It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Susan Laine. I’ve read all of her books and I’ve loved just about all of them. One of the reasons why I like her books so much is how she really seems to know her characters and her own obvious affection for them always shines through in her writing. Between a strong plot and loveable characters, Ms. Laine continuously writes novels that easily become favorites of mine.
I’ve been waiting for this book. Out of all of the books in the series, Sounds of Love is one of my all-time favorites. Sure, they are ALL great and I’ve enjoyed all of the characters she has created in this series, but Sebastian and Jordan won this reader’s heart and never let go. Sounds of Love is a book I reach for when I need a pick-me-up or if I’m in the mood for a beautifully told romantic tale, and now Sensible Commitments will be another book I’ll reach for time and time again as well.
Sensible Commitments isn’t just about Sebastian and Jordan. We also have scenes with the other amazing characters in her other ‘Senses’ books as well. Each hero is really going through their own issues they must face before Sebastian and Jordan’s wedding. Once again, Ms. Laine handled this beautifully and I was truly thrilled how the book turned out.
If you are looking for a well-told series with amazing characters, this is definitely the series for you. You’ll fall in love with these delightful men and rejoice in each character’s growth and achievements. Love, Love, Love this series and this book and I HIGHLY recommend it.
Although this probably could be read as a stand-alone in the series, I do not recommend reading it without the other books in the series first.
The Senses and Sensations books are:
Sounds of Love
Love in Plain Sight
A Luminous Touch
The Sweetest Scent
