Elley Arden packs a lot into this book about Gavin Sullivan, a professional baseball player, and aspiring model Emerson Raye.
Gavin's feeling a little off-kilter--his parents have just thrown him for a loop with news that his older brother has a twin they are searching for, but Gavin's sworn to secrecy until further notice. And with the baseball season about to resume, his manager thinks he's fat and is showing up to personally witness his weigh-ins. The comfort and temptation of homebaked chocolate cookies is REAL.
His life takes a turn for the better when he stumbles across Emerson's photo shoot for her SI competition. Her curves for miles catch his eye, but when he manages to finagle a date for drinks, her honesty and attitude catch his heart.
Interfering media attention, strained familial relationships, professional pressures, and their own burgeoning feelings make for a page-turning read. Ms Arden's characterizations feel incredibly real, and I love that both Emerson and Gavin have such relatable thoughts and reactions. I love getting Gavin's viewpoint also, and think that Ms Arden's done a great job with giving us a peek at a guy's thoughts in a way that reads very true to life. The other thing I really enjoyed is how Elley's written the familial relationships, and their friendships and other connections--a great mix of wonderful and painful, which is often how it can be in real life as well.
Home on Anna Maria Island is a very satisfying read, and I definitely look forward to the rest of this trilogy as well as to reading more of Ms Arden's work!
