On Higher Ground is a continuation of On Solid Ground. There are so many couples who I’d love to see their relationship into the happily ever after. That is what On Higher Ground is about. Beck and Dax ar engage, raising Violet, living in a quaint house in a cute little neighborhood while planning their wedding, and enjoying life. Sadly I don’t feel that I needed to read anything that happens into Beck and Dax’s happily ever after.
The flow of Dax and Beck’s relationship felt so forced here. I’ll be honest I skimmed the majority of On Higher Ground after the first few chapters. There was a very noticeable pattern and it bored me. Dax and Beck have been together for nearly two years at this point, engaged for a year and a half. Readers get to see their day to day life in snippets of things that stress a relationship and the sex they have after they make it through the stressor. That is the whole book. Some of the trying situations are happening on the page and others are flashbacks where Dax or Beck is in his own head.
The mess that is Micah will get the next book in the series. He has a small secondary role here in this one. I’m not curious enough about him to want to read his book. He’s so interesting in fact that even Dax forgets to follow up with him after a meltdown. Beck brings up that they should check on him. They never do. Micah is one one the many pointless happenings here that allow for Beck and Dax to have sex. I’m not going further into this series.
