Meeting Chase moves Whitney to change her life for the better, though she seems to have it all when we first meet her. But she doesn't have love. She wasn't even looking for it. But isn't that often the way?
Nicole Green's characters are always very genuine and they stick with you long after the novel is read. I enjoyed this book very much. :)
Whitney Jones is a career driven lawyer who is working herself to death to make partner. Smart, stubborn, beautiful and level-headed, she isn't concerned with love and just wants to make her family proud. She is a classic type A personality that schedules everything around her. One day she meets a man that she knows she should avoid, but she can't help being drawn to.
Chace Murphy is a laid back kind of guy. His life's greatest ambition is to be happy. He is impulsive, fun loving and spontaneous. He meets Whitney at one of the lowest points in his life, but he can't get her out of his mind. On a whim, he moves to DC (where Whitney lives) and starts a new life where Whitney takes center stage.
I loved this book that not only was a study of the building of a relationship, but also the evolution of Whitney. This woman believes that power, money and prestige equals success and happiness. So, how she reconciles herself with the notion that maybe the life she has built does quite fit anymore is pretty interesting. I won't give away any spoilers, but Whitney had to do some major soul searching to decide what she wanted out of life, professionally and personally.
I liked both Whitney and Chace and I completely understood what drew these two together.Read more ›
This was an interesting book on many levels.
Whitney Jones is at visiting her large, loving but somewhat dysfunctional family during the Christmas holidays when she literally stumbles across Chace Murphy.
Chace is drowning his sorrows in a bottle he is sharing with the friendly, local drunk outside the local 7-11. His live-in girlfriend of two years has just informed him that she's moving out to be with another man she's fallen in love with.
Good Samaritan Whitney gives him a ride home. The two are immediately attracted to each other but Whitney is just doing her 'keeping a possible drunk driver off the road' but while Chace is still a little miserable.
They strike up a friendship over the holidays and before you know it, Chace has packed up his things and followed Whitney to DC.
What I found immediately interesting was even though this is a romance novel, the author steps outside the box a bit and doesn't do a lot of 'normal' contemporary romance novel things. For one thing, she doesn't describe people to death. We never get a real physical description of Whitney. Chace thinks she beautiful and shapely. We only know she's African-American. But we don't know how tall or short or fat or thin or how luxurious her hair or what exact shade of brown her eyes are -- that sort of thing. We only now that Chace is attractive with eyes that are a striking color that act as a stand out feature for Whitney. Whitney has a large and eclectic circle of friends but again your imagination is the only thing that provides their descriptions. I liked that. Sometimes I get bored with having every single character in a book described down to the pores in their skin.Read more ›
Chace is a free lanced photographer and Whitney is a ambitious attorney fighting her way to the top, how much more different can two people be. The questions is are they so different in the ways that count? Absolutely not, they bring out the best in each other. This wasn't one those rushed lustful romances that we get so much of. Ms Green took the time to develop a friendship and bond between them first. The emotions were so real, their families and friends even reminded me a lot of the family and friends in my own life. There was great dialogue and excellent cast of supporting characters. The story was so fresh and real I was hooked by the first chapter. I started it yesterday afternoon and finished today. It took me less time to finish this story than it did the book I finished prior to starting it and it was half as many pages. I definitely loved the story and send major Kudos to Ms Green.....Great Job!! Some of the veteran authors may want to take notice, because Ms Green is definitely a rising star in my opinion. She has made my list of must read authors!!

I absolutely loved this book. Nicole created a romance novel. It was refreshing to see two real people fall in love. It was about how two soul mates found each other. Read morePublished on October 26, 2011 by Mare-Mare
