The timeline was confusing. In some parts of the book it seemed as if it had only been a couple of years since they'd graduated and broke up. But other things would make me think it had been a lot longer than that. And if it really was only two years, we're talking about a couple of twenty year olds here, not really old enough to lament what could have been.
Also not making sense was the fact that Andrew claimed he hadn't had sex since Etta. So a recent high school graduate gets dumped by his girlfriend (with whom he'd had a sexual relationship) and he decides to be celibate? Sorry, I don't buy it.
Sure it was sweet that they got back together, but seeing each other again after (????) years and just jumping into moving in together seems a bit unwise.
Etta and Andrew were high school sweethearts but she broke up with him to go off to college, breaking his heart. Two years later, she’s back in their hometown and working as a real estate agent. When she goes to show a house on Christmas Eve, it turns out to be Andrew’s family’s old house and Andrew happens to be the perspective buyer she’s showing too. Can Etta win back the heart she broke two years ago?
I liked Etta and Andrew but there wasn’t really an opportunity to get a handle on them. This novella focused more on the romance and the storyline which worked for me. I liked the interactions between Etta and Andrew and it was definitely steamy. I felt like they may have moved into their relationship again rather quickly. After 2 years apart, they didn’t waste anytime and I think both of them have probably changed a lot since them and it may not be realistic to reconnect the way they did in one night. However, I really liked the romance and the dual POV.
Overall, I enjoyed Off the Market and found it to be a cute Christmas novella. It was quick, easy and a nice little fireside read for the holiday spirit. I really like Magan Vernon’s writing and this book was no exception. If you’re looking for a fast dose of holiday cheer, this novella is for you.
Off the Market by Magan Vernon is a Christmas themed novella. This one was short and sweet and definitely puts you in the mood for the holidays. I haven't ever read anything by Magan Vernon before so I wasn't sure exactly what her writing style was like, but I ended up liking it and thought that the characters were likable. This novella is a cute read if you are looking for some Christmas spirit and a little bit of second chance romance.
Etta can't believe that she is being asked to show a house on Christmas Eve, but her coworkers are all with their families and have plans. Not only does someone want to see a house on Christmas Eve, but it isn't just any house. The house used to be her high school boyfriend Andrew's house. Even though she broke up with him right before heading off to college, she has never gotten over Andrew. She has avoided him since coming back to town figuring that he never wants to see her again after she left and broke his heart. But when the potential buyer shows up to view the house, it is none other than Andrew. Andrew has never been able to get over Etta, and he is ready to get her back. Can Andrew and Etta pick up where they left off years ago? Can they have a second chance at the love they once shared?
I liked Andrew and Etta. They were fun to read about and they both seemed to be really genuine. They were sweet together, and you could tell that they both never stopped caring about each other. Sometimes with novellas, I struggle with the ability to find a relationship believable because of the short length. But I really found these two characters to be real and their connection seemed to be one that had endured all the obstacles that had been in their way.Read more ›
Etta Davis returned to her hometown after her father had a massive heart attack. A real estate agent, the last thing she wanted to do was show a house on Christmas Eve. Especially her high school sweetheart's old house. When she opens the door to her new potential client, she finds herself face-to-face with her ex, Andrew Lawson. Etta and Andrew didn't leave things on great terms. She was headed off to college, he was staying in their hometown. She didn't see a future for them and didn't want to get stuck in her hometown, so she broke things off right after graduation. He doesn't know she's back in town... or at least she doesn't think he does. Andrew has never gotten over her. She's never gotten over him. What will happen now that they're standing in front of each other again?
Etta and Andrew were both likable characters. I wanted them to get their happily ever after. This was a short, super quick read. I think I read it in about half an hour. It was the perfect length to tell Etta and Andrew's story. There was just enough backstory that I understood where each of them were coming from. While it all happened in just 55 pages, the pace of the novella was good. It didn't feel horribly rushed. This was a sweet, adorable and sexy story of second chances. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
