Sandra O'Toole, aka Zoe Carmichael the famous artist, calls Jake, a handyman, to come and fix her toilet. After beginning to fix the leak, her dog startles him and he falls and hits his head on the base of the toilet. While he is out cold, Zoe finds herself falling for this ordinary guy. Maybe it's his body, maybe it's that she is lonely, maybe it's just crazy.
Waiting for the ambulance to arrive, Zoe and Jake begin to talk and find out about each other. She lets on she is the daughter of a famous artist and that she never wants to talk to her father again. He shares that he is engaged to a beautiful lady and is working hard to pay for the wedding. And they share a feeling, although neither says anything out loud.
Over the next few months Jake gets better, but Zoe can't get him out of her mind so she calls every so often just to talk. He should feel guilty, but doesn't. They both want the same thing, they just don't know how much.
After years of hiding from the public, and her father, Jake allows Zoe the opportunity to gain her freedom back.
Not one to spoil a story, I will stop there. However I will let you know that this story, while a cute and easy read, also brings something else to the forefront--you don't always know the truth unless you experience it yourself.
This book conveys the message that being yourself, being honest and not rushing to judgments about people will allow you the happiness you deserve. I recommend this to anyone looking for a quick and enjoyable read.
Life Is a Balance, It isn't only about you
Morgan Mandel has put together a charming romance with two completely opposite characters. Jake and Zoe are very likeable and the reader roots for their relationship to develop, even though Jake is engaged to someone else. An added bonus is Zoe's Chinese Crested dog FuFu. A nice addition to the story is the way Jake and Zoe encourage each other to live up to their full potential. All in all, this novella is a fast, entertaining read that will hold the reader's attention throughout.
Knowing that Jake was engaged at the beginning of this, I wondered how Mandel would pull off his doubting his relationship with Angelina. Could the author get Jake and Zoe together and still keep Jake likable to the reader? She did that, and more. By the time this novella is over, you understand Jake's actions and are glad he did what he did. The secondary story of Zoe's relationship with her father Carmen was a nice touch. It helped to round out her character.
What I thought was smart considering the length of this story is that the majority of the novella was focused on the two main characters. There were secondary characters around, but not a lot of time was spent with them, so the reader comes away feeling like she followed these two people on a wonderful journey to discovering each other.
Another A+ for Morgan Mandel.
