The story is well written and the plot is laid out well and easy to read. The characters are ones you can easily relate to even Jack's best friend's future wife. We've all met someone like her, haven't we. This story Has the main characters, Jack and Cassie, each with their own frailties as all humans have. Pleasant change from all those tower of strengths or fabled beauties other Romance stories have.
Cassie runs her own catering business. She is chef extraordinaire and is even catering her own wedding to Angus. Angus, cad that he is, jilts Cassie on the morning of their wedding without even saying so in person. He leaves for Nepal to recuperate. Cassie is devastated. She is left with having to cancel everything herself and gets no help from the sister that she has raised. And then, the unthinkable happens. There is a fire in her store. The firemen are called and save the place from burning down, but there is water damage everywhere. In comes Jack. He's a hunky fireman who feels sorry for Cassie. He gives her a bit of support to get her through the initial shock of the fire and then he leaves.
In attempt to get herself together, Cassie takes her sister Lisa to what was supposed to be a honeymoon for Cassie and Angus. Surprisingly, Jack is there with his best friend for his friends wedding. From here we have the starts of a budding romance.
Buy the book folks. I can promise you will not be sorry.
This was a light little romance that I snagged as a kindle freebie - I am kind of a sucker for stories set in the Land Down Under. I liked this for the most part. Cassie is pretty stuck on Jack being a player, but he treats her pretty darn honorably and is always good for a rescue - so I liked him a lot. I thought that the relationship unfolded nicely all the way until they finally get together and then then ending is really abrupt - the 'I love yous' and the proposal was way too fast to be satisfying- and the conflict of the returned 'groom' isn't really used. There needed to be three or so more chapters to finish this off on a satisfactory way.
Right from the beginning I could feel the sparks between Cassie and Jack and I loved watching their relationship develop.
The ending was predictable, although there was one bit to it that was a bit unexpected, but with everything both characters had going on, the story held my attention. Poor Cassie having to deal with a last minute wedding cancellation from her fiance, to a fire at her catering business to taking her younger sister with her on her "honeymoon" and poor Jack having to deal with the ongoing not-so-subtle flirtations from his best friend's fiance and also him trying to come to terms with his feelings for the damsel who he too often found in distress.
Definitely worth the read!
There is nothing I hate more in a book, than when the H goes and has sex with someone else after he has gotten 'involved' with the h. Although in this book the attraction has only taken the form of some passionate kisses, I seriously disliked the fact that the H made out with another girl in front of the h, in fact he made eye contact with her whilst he was kissing the other woman. He then went on to sleep with her. I just can't get over stuff like this and wonder if it is entirely necessary since it detracts from the romance.
Otherwise it was an interesting romance.
