The characters in this book made it difficult for me to get through. But first, let me say what I did like about this book. I liked Francois the Wedding Planner. I loved him, actually. He brought in some much needed humor to the story. I liked the pregnancy aspect. For some reason, I wasn't expecting it. Even when Emily started having symptoms. Or maybe I knew about the pregnancy, but just forgot. In any event, it was a welcome surprise. Gave the book a soapy element. But then, things got TOO soapy. Emily seemed like a decent enough person at first. But then she became way too wishy washy in her feelings. I would have preferred she pick one guy over the other and deal with the consequences instead of things ending up the way they did. I didn't like either Ed or Ryan for her. If you ask me, she should have ended up with the hot tattooed friend of Ed. He seemed like the only good guy. Because neither Ed or Ryan seemed like they particularly loved her all that much. The pregnancy seemed very unrealistic as well. She just found out she was pregnant at like 10 weeks along and was already described as 'waddling' and having out of control stretch marks. I didn't like her friend Jess at first. She bullied and bulldozed Emily into throwing her a wedding because she was "busy" despite the fact that Emily runs her own business and had 2 men and a pregnancy to juggle. An editing error confused me. In the beginning of the book, Jess used her mother's death as a way to convince Emily to do the wedding, but during the wedding, Jess' mom was there. The end of the book was anti-climactic and kind of silly. The resolution of the lopsided love triangle was pointless in that neither option was a good one. The book had potential. I just think the motivations and actions of the characters could have been better and would have made this better.
It’s a relatively short book, under 200 pages so a quick read in theory. It however felt quite a lot longer than that. While the concept was a standard boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy re-finds girl it seemed a little disjointed but I can’t really put my finger on why.
Emily is a pleasant enough character, if maybe a little weak but she is protecting her heart. After losing Ed she has rebuilt her life, has a new guy and a pregnancy .. why risk all that just because the previous love saunters back into town … I wasn’t too keen on Jess, she seemed far too dominating to be considered Emily’s friend.
But if you simply want an easy read, a beautiful location, a bit of tension, some humour and a couple of hours entertainment then this is ideal. It is actually the first book in a series so maybe the next will expand on the characters or area.
Thanks to the author and Faye Rogers for my copy in exchange for an honest opinion.
Emily and Ed have a history together. Eight years ago, Ed wanted to run off with Emily, but she said no. Trying to get over him, she made a fresh start in life...she opened her own business and eventually learned to love again. Everything is going good for Emily, especially since she is expecting her first child soon. One thing she never expected was for Ed to come back.
Ed promised himself he would never go back to Emily. However, over the past eight years, he hasn't been able to find a woman that won his heart in the way Emily did years ago. Finally accepting that he will never get over Emily, he decides to try and win her back. Things don't go as planned once he finds out Emily has moved on, and to make it even worse, she is pregnant with another man's child.
The story that unfolds is definitely interesting. Obviously, they have a lot to overcome if they want to be together. One thing that neither of them lost over the years is the undeniable chemistry they have with one another. The story unfolds at a great pace, and definitely kept my attention throughout. I had mixed feelings about Emily's friend, Jessica, and felt she wasn't always fair to Emily. I also felt sorry for Ryan, Emily's boyfriend, especially since Ed showing up came out of nowhere, and totally turned his life upside down. Overall, this was a great read with well developed characters. I would recommend this book, and look forward to reading more in the series.
I was given a digital copy of this book from Rachelle Paige and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
