"Welcome to sunshine."
Oh my goodness but I love Team Walker. I could kill Ty at times (many in fact) but I love this book and that 'Epiclogue' is up there with my all time favourite epilogues.
I don't often have celebrities come to mind for characters when reading and I can't remember if this casting was what I had in mind the first time I read this but after reread number 2 and most definitely after reread number 3, Sofia Bush and Shemar Moore were with me the entire way. I know Ty is clean shaven but this was Shemar in what looks like a shower and for the purposes of this book a shower pic is more important.

"Your nightmare, mama, was my dream.
Never had a home until you gave me one.
Never had anyone give to me the way you gave to me.
Never thought of findin' a women who I wanted to have my baby.
Never had light in my life, never, not once. I lived wild but I didn't burn bright until you shined your light on me.
Whacked, fuckin' insane, but at night, you curled in front of me, didn't mind I did that time that wasn't mine 'cause it meant I walked out to you.
Your nightmare, my dream."
Tyrell Walker may use the endearment 'mama' but the man made it work.
Lexie and Ty are the dream team. My perfect KA couple and all the drama they endure is so, so, so worth it.
The secondary characters in this are also the absolute business, Julius Champion in particular and the brother love between him and Ty was adorable. The love between Ty and Tate actually made me cry because I am a total sap.
This was a reread BR with the lovely Susan who abandoned me in the middle to go have a night out on the rooftop of a gay leather bar in NY. Without me. I am totally sure that the rules of BR'ing state that you must bring said BR'er with you to awesome events while both are still reading the book. 3,176 miles be damned.
