Sweet and romantic, this story will tug at your heartstrings.
Bella was the proverbial ugly duckling, the one who didn't fit in with the family. But Owen found something worthy in her, and he was determined for her to shine...but without throwing his heart into the bargain. Which is something Bella can't bear, because before she knew it, she was falling for him...
I don't know how Natalie Anderson does it, but she creates these to-die-for heroes! Owen is one of them. He's so sweet to Bella, supporting and helping her when she needed, and perhaps that's what made him so irresistible.
I love this story! There are some spine-tingling warm-fuzzies-in-your-heart moments as Owen stood up for Bella against her family. Yes, we modern women sure can stand up for ourselves, but having a gorgeous guy do it for us is even better. Coz it means he sees something worth defending in us, and it's the same for Owen. He was intrigued with Bella, and he was the only one who sees past her exterior to the hurt she was suffering inside. He believes in her and propels her to be the person she could be.
Owen is a marvelous hero, especially toward the end. He just ratchets up the angst meter and makes me ache for him. Despite what he thinks of himself, Bella sees the truth about him, from his actions.
The story and the writing is top-notched, with great (flawed) characters that you just couldn't help but cheer on. The title could've been better, but well, technically, I guess it's correct. After all, Owen does live on the highest floor of a 3-storey warehouse.
Looking for an awesome read to fill a lazy afternoon? Check out Natalie Anderson!
