(I voluntarily reviewed an eARC of the book for For The Love of Fictional Worlds)
This book was EXACTLY what I didn’t even know I needed right now – A cute, delightful romance with wonderful charming MCs and Secondary Characters aided by some enchanting writing style that me flying through the whole book in ONE & A HALF HOURS at the start of my workday :D
Bentley Ridge is a stuffy, uptight and snobby businessman whose days are made up of doing business and only business and unlike other heroes in the same shoes, he doesn’t do much of playing; which made fall in love with him and all I wanted to do was cuddle him up and make him hot chocolate; which I have a feeling that he wouldn’t appreciate since it didn’t come from Emmy.
Emmy is a breath of fresh air, not only for Bentley but also for me – she is fun, sarcastic and her reflex quips had me bursting out in giggles out loud in the office at just the wrong time! Not that I actually cared; I was perfectly happy and enjoying the beauty of this book.
THIS IS WHAT RELATIONSHIPS SHOULD BE LIKE – no drama, honest and open communication; especially with using their common sense and good judgment.
Do you have any idea what it is like to read about a good adult relationship is supposed to be like? I get it, no readers actually want something fun and exciting to get away from their reality – BUT I HAVE A RELATIONSHIP LIKE BENTLEY & EMMY; and I know that no matter what, two people who have enough sense to understand that drama doesn’t make relationship fun, it’s how the two people interact with each other and THAT’s EXACTLY HOW THE AUTHOR SHOWED THE RELATIONSHIP IN THIS BOOK!
The writing was the icing on the cake – Ms. Moreland pretty much made sure I got hooked right in from the start and she didn’t let go until I reached the very end! Plus, she not only made sure I adored the main characters; she also had me invested in the secondary characters like never have I before – and now I can’t WAIT to read the rest of the family’s books! <3
