MY IMPRESSIONS OF THIS BOOK:
When I first started this book I was immediately caught up in the fun and flirty connection between two people full of doubts when it comes to love and commitment. I was immediately caught up in their witty banter, their unforgettable early exchanges, and their slow burn in discovering where true love lies. Not only is romantic love dealt with but so too is that of family and in the talented hands of Ms. Burgos it's a delightful tale. From the first page to the last this story put a smile on my face, and a warmth to my heart, and I still get a chuckle or two when I think of it.
Ford Chadwick is a larger than life hero, a sexy yet brooding man who's views on love and relationships have him getting thrown out of a bedroom at the start of this story. Seeing his parent's marriage implode as a child has him keeping far away from love and commitment as an adult. For him, he just wants the honesty of sex and nothing more, but when he gets an unexpected text it will forever change his views on matters of the heart. What starts out as a mistakenly sent text soon becomes a humorous back and forth between two guarded people who slowly reveal more and more about themselves under the guise of anonymity. Add in an intriguing new neighbor next door and the sparks practically leap off the page as the push/pull between them slowly builds into a bonfire. Ford's a bit of a jerk early on as someone who prefers being left alone, someone who barely tolerates his step-siblings, and someone who lives his life for himself. As the story progresses though readers get to see a more caring side, an endearing side that had me aching over his trust issues and cheering him on to open his heart to the possibilities. Opening his heart to romance also has him dealing more fully with his family in a secondary storyline that was satisfying and endeared him to me too.
Persephone "Persy" Brassard's a strong-willed heroine, a social media influencer who seems to have a perfect life as she travels the world while living life to the fullest. She's bold, sassy, and good at helping others find their inner happiness. Behind the larger than life image the world sees though is a woman recently left bruised by a break-up. Two years of dating the same man put thoughts of love and marriage in her head, but instead she was left with a broken heart and a blow to her self-esteem as he disparaged her career on his way out the door. To save that career, a career that has her addressing the issue of love both in a relationship and of yourself, Persy ends up in a complex juggling of the heart between the grumpy neighbor next door and the intriguing man who she's been texting. Through each text, through all the funny banter, she reawakens her belief in herself and finds a true HEA from someone who looks to be her exact opposite...but who couldn't be more perfect for her.
This was a charming, heartwarming, and funny tale of romance between strangers, romance between friends, and love for family. It's a beautiful balancing act that Ms. Burgoa undertakes here and it kept me glued to the pages, reading non-stop, and then wanting to go back and read it all over again. The main couple is crackling in all of their scenes together, giving off heat that I was desperately waiting to see finally culminate. The secondary characters were well-fleshed out too and helped readers discover other sides to the main couple and left me wanting to see more of them in the future. From its clever banter, to its delightful main couple, to heartwarming depictions of love and HEA, this romance was wholeheartedly entertaining and I recommend it to all those wanting a fun and flirty story full of heart and soul!
My rating for this is an A.
