SHE WANTS TO MOVE ON…WITH SOMEONE BLAND AND BORING…
Widowed psychologist Maggie McShae is ready to find someone who won’t make her heart beat fast, her knees grow weak, or make her feel hot and cold at the same time. No one she can really love, because love brings too much pain.
Drew Poulos, son of a billionaire, is hiding out in Mirror Lake, working at his brothers’ brandy company. He inspires those very feelings Maggie’s determined to avoid. The hunky businessman, who left his high society bride at the altar, is the last person she’d ever seriously date…but he might just be perfect for a fling…
HE NEEDS A DATE FOR HIS BROTHER’S WEDDING…WITH SOMEONE WHO CAN CALM HIS QUIRKY FAMILY…
Drew’s too heartbroken to ever trust any woman again, but the sexy psychologist is the perfect person to deflect his family’s attention as his brother marries the woman Drew once thought was his.
As sparks fly, two injured hearts might just find that true love can be even better the second time around….
This is another tough book to rate. The dead spouse is always hard to get right. Our heroine needs to be separated by a crow bar to let go of the memories.
Corey her husband died of cancer and the amount of times she said he was perfect and they were the loves of each other’s lives leads me to doubt that at the end of the book she does a 180 and realizes that Drew really is the one for her. Drew deserves better. But her groveling at the end helped her for me to soften to her. Drew let her squirm unfortunately not long enough IMO.
I must give props to the author though the MC didn’t particularly like one another at the beginning their character development is really good. They become friends and there is an underlying chemistry although both think they are wrong for one another but they are exactly what they need.
I enjoyed the pace of the book at times but was frustrated at the best of times with the pace as well.
I’m a sucker for single parent romance. Drew getting to know Griffin awkward yet adorable is the best.
Overall an enjoyable read. Sweet, sexy yet sad at times with a loss for both but also learning how to move on with life.
To be honest I don’t know if I’d read more by this author.
