Things Paige Morrison will never understand about Mirabelle, Florida:
Why wearing red shoes makes a girl a harlot Why a shop would ever sell something called “buck urine” Why everywhere she goes, she runs into sexy-and infuriating-Brendan King
After losing her job, her apartment, and her boyfriend, Paige has no choice but to leave Philadelphia and move in with her retired parents. For an artsy outsider like Paige, finding her place in the tightly knit town isn’t easy-until she meets Brendan, the hot mechanic who’s interested in much more than Paige’s car. In no time at all, Brendan helps Paige find a new job, new friends, and a happiness she wasn’t sure she’d ever feel again. With Brendan by her side, Paige finally feels like she can call Mirabelle home. But when a new bombshell drops, will the couple survive, or will their love come undone?
First off I want to thank NetGalley for approving us to read and review this book.
Ever have a story that you could swear that the author is one of you friends and writes everything you guys talk about? Or that she is reading your mind? Yeah… that is completely how I felt with this book.
Not only are the characters completely relatable, but their struggles and growth are as well. Something else that I enjoyed so much about this story was that the characters took things slow, they didn’t immediately fall into bed together or proclaim their love for each other, (though it isn’t a bad thing), they let it come naturally and at a great pace.
This book also has some very strong emotions… I know I laughed at some of the things that happen to Paige, got angry at the mean characters, cried in the hard times and was scared when somethings happened, but the strongest emotion of all was joy. It was so nice to see her go from so much bad luck to such good fortune.
Brendan sounds like such a sexy character, and his care for his family and friends is incredible.
And though I know this is one of my more vague reviews, I promise it is only because I don’t want to give anything away. Just know that it is a fantastic, keep you on the edge of your seat, don’t get anything done until you’ve finished reading the whole thing kind of book.
Oh and there are more to come… so I will be in line waiting to read them as soon as they become available.
