I am all for a good HEA romance story. But wow this couple had so many disconnects, They were like two ships passing in night.. It took almost all of 3 books for them to be in sync and harmonize as a couple. Yes, while they had external factors that made it difficult. Most of their challenges were internal. This couple failed to communicate on the most fundamental level which led to major conflict and drama.. Example when Elizabeth Boss invited her to a dinner business meeting while Gabriel was out of town, a simple phone call to inform her husband would have avoided a catastrophic blow up between them. – If Gabriel simply informed Elizabeth that he was seeing a Therapist, which happen to be a beautiful blonde women, he would not have had to endure Elizabeth angst and drama. Keep in mind, these failure to communicate incidents took place after the couple acknowledge they had a problem and agreed to always be open and honest with each other.
The simplest problem
They failed to communicate on the most fundemental level.
This is a couple who are from two different worlds, different age groups, ten years apart. And had different priorities in their lives.
