We first met Sofie in When You Are Mine (The Bennetts #1). She was a secondary character that seemingly had few redeeming qualities. I have to confess when I heard she was the "heroine" of this installment of the Bennett series, I wondered how Ms. Ryan was going to make her into someone we could appreciate.
Sofie is a classic example of how appearances can be deceiving. As we got to know her in Until I'm Yours, we discovered that the cold, ice princess persona hid a very intelligent woman with a warm heart. I appreciated the fact that she owned her imperfections, even if there were times when she was too hard on herself.
One of the things I was curious about going into this book, was the man who would be Sofie's love interest. Trevor is just amazing! I love how he got Sofie from the word go and understood that he would have to push her for more than a superficial fling.
The relationship between these two was so much fun! Trevor is practically perfect, but in such a way that you want to get to know him. He sets the tone for their relationship early by insisting they get to know each other. He also sees something in Sofie that most don't bother to and that support and faith helps her blossom. As fantastic as the super sexy Trevor is and as wonderful as the relationship is - this is really Sofie's story. She reminds me of a caterpillar turning into a butterfly as she embraces the emotional changes that come her way and taps into an inner strength I don't think she realized was there.
Until I'm Yours fits well in The Bennetts series, but it truly is a stand alone effort. Kerris and Walsh (the main characters in The Bennetts #1 and #2) make several appearances in supporting roles and it's great to catch up with them, but you could easily start the series with this book. Ms. Ryan continues to out do herself with The Bennetts series. I enjoyed #1 and 2. I thought #3 (Cam and Jo) was my favorite, then I read Sofie and Trevor's story and have a new favorite now!
We are so excited about Until I'm Yours, that we want to give a copy away on release day!
