Coffee dates with Moonlight on Nightingale Way
- First Date: Ooo we begin with wicked banter and snark. I am dancing a little I love these hater begins, it leads to heat. Logan is drop dead gorgeous and I’ve been waiting for his story. Since I have known him since Echoes of Scotland Street, I am willing to ignore his man-whore ways on our first date. I know what lies beneath and I am not talking about his killer abs. Logan is starting over and life looks good. He has a good paying job, has paid for his mistakes and it totally making up for lost time with all sorts of extracurricular activity. All of which has cast him in a bad light with his sexy, uptight neighbor Grace. Grace is normally soft-spoken but her new neighbor has her verbally sparing with him. I am hooked folks. Hooked! These two are destined to dance and it is going to be wicked.
- Second Date: Life is about to throw Logan a curve-ball and somehow Grace finds herself assisting him and the more Logan steps up the harder Grace falls. I will not tell you what the curveball is because well, spoilers’ darling. I will tell you it is sweet, complicated, and wonderful. If I had a soft spot for Logan before I am a puddle on the floor at this point. I love the friendship that begins to develop between Logan and Grace. It feels natural and allows them to really see the other. The complication adds interest, awe moments and stole my heart. We get some heat and it was deliciously hot.
- Third date: Fear, the past, and emotional scars have these two tip toeing around their feelings. Trust is a major factor and we have to go through some growing pains. I loved the reasons Logan stepped back and totally respect them but dang if I was not reaching for truffles and flipping pages hoping things worked out. I want to pause in my date to mention I love that this relationship is slow building and that friends and family are weaved into the tale. I love these characters and never want my date to end.
Final thoughts on my dates with Moonlight on Nightingale Way: I love that the tale takes us to a good place but does not wrap up everything in a rushed knotted bow. Young does give us an epilogue giving us updates on all the coupes and family of On Dublin Street including Grace and Logan. Fans of closed ending will be satisfied.
