Intro: I think this review is going to be a bit shorter than my normal. The novella is pretty short and full of updates about past couples in a series so I don’t think I can go really in-depth until I’ve read the series which I definitely plan to. Once I finish reading through Mary Balogh’s books. So I will update this review then.
Heroine: Becca-I liked Becca. She seemed like a nice girl with a good head on her shoulders. She also had plenty of moxie which I really loved. I’ve been reading so many of Balogh’s early regencies so it’s nice to find a heroine with some zest.
Hero: Nate-I had trouble with him. For a good portion of the book, he has a girlfriend that he has not yet broken up with. I don’t quite know how I feel about that. On one hand, I am a fan of books with infidelity as a theme but on the other, I find that I have trouble with the theme when it is in a contemporary romance. I did like him otherwise. I have a weakness for mechanics.
Chemistry: One thing I definitely can say about Nate and Becca was they had amazing chemistry. I did not like that Nate had a girlfriend but the chemistry he had with Becca was intense. I almost wish they had gotten a full-length book because they were awesome.
Conclusion: I need to go back a read this series because I was kind of lost with all of the updates of previous couples from the other books in the series. I loved Nate and Becca’s story though but I am curious to see if my opinion changes if I read the previous books.
Rachel Gibson lives in Idaho with her husband, three kids, two cats and a dog of mysterious origin. She began her fiction career at age 16, when she ran her car into the side of a hill, retrieved the bumper, and drove to a parking lot, where she strategically scattered the car’s broken glass all about. She told her parents she’d been the victim of a hit and run and they believed her. She’s been making up stories ever since, although she gets paid better for them nowadays.
