To say that Colton has some control issues would be an understatement. He acquired them at a very young age. When his parents died he embraced the role as big brother. He felt obligated to protect his younger siblings. As his military career progressed he kept with the role as a protector. He does not see himself as a controlling annoyance. He truly believes that he knows what is best for those around him, he has their best interest at heart, and he only wants to protect those that he cares about.
Penelope has created some interesting coping mechanisms. She grew up in a home where she never met her parent’s expectations. This taught her to set others expectations of her low. She lives the carefree life, never lets people close, she never lets others down. Her new roommate Colton is shaking her entire life up. He is discovering that there is more to her than she lets others see. The more they spend together the more she wants him, but she doesn’t want him controlling her life.
Opposites attract couples are so fun to read. Colton does not see himself as domineering. He has started to care for Penelope. He wants what’s best for her. After a threat harms her he wants to protect her at all costs. Penelope does not see it as protection, she sees it as a man trying to control her life. I just loved how this just raised the sexual tension even higher with these two.
I loved reading Cassie as the best friend, and the baby sister. She was a wonderful heroine to read in Operation: Endgame. Her character transitioned to a supporting role so smoothly. She provided some much needed not necessarily heeded, advice to her friend Penelope, and her big brother Colton.
I can’t wait for Chris’s story. Readers were given some very interesting details into his life. I have to admit I need to know what happened to cause some of the tension that was present.
