As Culberson develops the romance between Fiona and Nick, there are other sub-plots that make for exciting reading. Fiona and her sister Ramona have never been closed but now that they are both divorced, they decide to work on their relationship and become close, until her sister betrays her. Fiona and her mother have a love/hate relationship. Fiona did not understand her mother, until moms explained to her motherly obligations, though you love your children, you might have to treat them based on their personality and temperament. I would put this novel in the category of Chick Lit. The Nick of Time involves a single, successful female, with a best friend and a rocky budding romance and a complicated life turning things around. There is just enough romance, humor and conflict to make a good read. . Fans of the "Chick Lit" genre and those looking for a funny romance will enjoy this offering.
With feelings of joy, she recruited her best friend, Nicole, to help her plan a "DFL - divorcee for life" party. Fiona spared no expense and invited 27 of our closet friends to celebrate with champagne, catered buffet, and private room. She shed her dressed to impress attorney façade for the evening and partied like there was no tomorrow. During the clean up phase of this soirée, she noticed the handsome cater. Drunken Fiona threw caution to the wind and invited him home for a one-night stand. Fiona acknowledged that the sex was hot and Nicholas "Nick" Nathaniel was FINE (frog hair split three ways fine) but in no way was she becoming involved in a serious relationship.
Nick is a divorcee, master chef and restaurant owner with two kids. He is a free spirit with a passion for expensive gifts and good food. Fiona captivated him while her mean spirit and her funky attitude made him even hungrier in the chase to win her heart. The friendship between the two gets complicated when Fiona realizes who her sisters new man is - waking up the ghetto side of this otherwise refined sister. She temporally loses touch with reality which may cause her to lose everything - her position at the firm, the love of her mother, and her new man friend - Nick.
THE NICK OF TIME is a story that rings true for so many sisters today. Culberson draws the reader in with humorous dialogue, theatrical twists, and the understanding that sex always has strings.Read more ›
At the party, Fiona declares to family and friends that marriage is NOT for her and she will NEVER marry again but when she meets Nick Nathaniel, will he be the one to change her mind? At first Fiona tries to keep her relationship with Nick about sex and no strings attached. But soon, a no-strings, one-night stand slowly turns into an relationship that slowly turns into love. Just as Fiona is about to give in to her feelings, a shocking secret with an unexpected betrayal comes to light that will change everything with Nick.
The Nick of Time by San Culberson is a sweet, romantic story that will make you laugh and appeal to readers who love their romance stories with a touch of drama. It captures the reader's attention from beginning to end as I read this book in one sitting, once I started, I had to finish it! San Culberson is an author to watch! Reviewed by Shay C of PeoplewholoveGoodBooks.
The Nick of Time is a superbly entertaining novel by San Culberson. Culberson brought an interesting twist to the story of a newly divorced woman. From the very first page, readers will know that this is not your typical "man meets woman" type novel. You'll see the transformation of Fiona as a woman who won't let the possibility of love enter her mind become a woman who may be willing to give love a try. There's a good blend of drama, sensuality, and amusing dialogue that makes this a delightful read. The Nick of Time is witty and uproariously humorous. Hopefully, we will have the pleasure of reading more from San Culberson in the future.
