Personally, I’m a huge fan of third person omniscient POV, so the shifts didn’t bother me as they were quite easy to follow. My editor might not agree with that as she never lets me do it though. LOL Moreover, I fell in love with Georgie and Steve’s story right from the start. I loved her youthful spirit so in contrast to his somber one and it was delightful to see her gradually winning him over to the bright side of life, so to speak. Every new exchange between this two creates a new crack in his defense walls until he has no way of denying the obvious: Georgie has shown him how joyful life can be when one allows it. There’s also an undeniable chemistry between them that leaves the reader breathless in the best sense possible. Plus, the build-up of their relationship is believable yet steamy. Kudos to the author! Well, as I’m not one to give away spoilers this is as much of the plot as I will discuss here so I won’t ruin anyone’s reading experience.
Besides the engaging storyline, Tricia McGill also fleshed out her characters brilliantly. They’re realistic and likable. The main couple is fun and hot to watch/read as I mentioned above; but the secondary characters are just as delightful. Jimmy, Steve’s son, stole my heart since his first scene. I personally know a couple of twelve-year-old kids who are just as bright and endearing as he is so I could totally relate. Lucy, Georgie’s sister, is just as intelligent and quick, and such a sweetheart. I loved her as well. Georgie and Lucy’s housemates are colorful characters who add to the fun of reading this story.
I recommend this fast-paced, quick read for all readers looking for some romantic fun.
Steve needs a wife, especially a mother for his child Jimmy but wants an uncomplicated marriage, so no love. He already had enough disappointments but it's hard for him to resist the charm and sweetness of his new dependent Georgie. But Jimmy like her very much and she is very good with him. And if she was the right one?
Steve is a successful man, charming, loves his son and tries to dedicate to him all his free time. Georgie is a shy girl, naive but very strong, she had to grow up fast: when her parents died she had to take care of her little sister of 11 years old with little money and a mortgage on the house. Jimmy is an adorable little boy, cute, smart. Together they form a beautiful family.
The author keeps you enthralled and engrossed throughout the book, a lovable, fast-paced story
If you enjoy reading sweet romance, then definitely pick this up!
A charming heroine and a brooding, will not let love in, hero make for a sassy and sexy read. That trope may seem a bit hum drum, but I liked the backstories of the characters; it made the story a bit more interesting.
Not sure if I liked Steve and that’s saying a lot, since I love brooders. The fact that he had a short fuse and didn’t really treat Georgie right, left me a bit irritated with him. I felt like he was using her to babysit in some parts as well. So glad that he somewhat redeemed himself, even though his sudden love for Georgie was expressed, I just wasn’t buying it.
Georgie is a character that at times displayed low self esteem; she just didn’t know her worth. I liked that she also grew as a character, but her love for Steve, kind of kept her going in circles. Their arguments were plenty and there were times I thought that maybe they were too opposite in their personalities.
I really think Steve’s son played a huge role in this love story. I felt like he was the glue that kept them together. He was my favorite character. Now his love story I wouldn’t mind reading one day.
Overall, I did like the funny dialogue and cute secondary characters. It made for a fun read. Although, the character POVs changed without warning so it kind of threw me off. This is the first book I read by Tricia McGill and I’m interested to see what else she comes up with.
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
“A Heart in Conflict” by Tricia McGill follows Georgette (Georgie) McNamara, who navigates the challenges of pursuing her dream of becoming a big name in high fashion while dealing with the responsibility of caring for her younger sister and resisting the allure of her boss, Steve Tanakis. Steve has his own challenges, including a young son who looks up to him and parents who are less than supportive, and he is unwilling to risk his heart ever again, no matter how intrigued he is by the petite whirlwind known as Georgie.
This contemporary romance with an Australian flair is a quick read that evokes the feel of traditional series romances with exotic locales, a somewhat naïve but plucky heroine, and a brooding older hero. I enjoyed the brief glimpse into the world of fashion and wish there was a little more development of some of the secondary characters such as Georgie’s housemates but understand that the brevity of the story undoubtedly limited what could be described. Those who are concerned with such things should be forewarned that there are frequent shifts in points of view but I think this was still a fun beach read for those who want a light romance set in foreign climes. I particularly enjoyed the younger characters and hope they eventually get to star in their own stories.
