My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This romance gets a solid 4.8 out of 5 stars from me.
Nolan writes in a way that draws me into the story. Even though these character experiences were far out of my realm of experience, I felt them. I believed them.
Now that I know the characters of Wishful, MS, and I’m ready to return to the town again and again.
It was interesting to start the story with the male lead, Cam. I think the author did this to introduce us to Wishful because the town is as important to the story as any of the characters. Cam isn’t the typical alpha male. He’s the kind of guy girls should wish to meet and fall in love with: caring, protective, passionate, responsible. Yeah, handsome helps too.
Norah, a high-powered marketing executive in the Windy City, lives a life far away from my normal world. However, I completely relate to her family background, since my parents also divorced. She is the alpha character in this book, but finally realizes that needing someone else can be a good thing.
I don’t read erotic romances, generally because I don’t need to have sex scenes spelled out for me. I’ve got a great imagination, so focusing on the inner thoughts more than the outer happenings is my preference for these interludes in a book. They were short and rare, so I could skim and still enjoy the tension they brought to the story.
This is an excellent contemporary romance. The town and minor characters came to life for me, making the story that much more enjoyable.
If you want to laugh, cry and feel like happily ever after is a real thing, this book is for you.
Yes, this was a cheap way to fill my post for the day. Come back next week for sage (or cheeky) words about family or writing.
