WELL WRITTEN WITH GREAT SECONDARY CHARACTERS
on April 28, 2015
This author is new to me, but I am glad I picked "It Had To Be Him." as my Kindle First book. Meg is a strong yet weak woman from a very small town. When it came to her child she was extremely strong and would do everything in her power to protect.her. She loved her daughter and at times, I think she felt her daughter was the only person that loved her. Meg had a somewhat rowdy and uproarious childhood who happened to be the town prankster. Her Father owns and runs the town and along with one son who is the sheriff, another son is a doctor and a daughter who manages the hotel where they live. Meg doesn't work for her Father mainly because he feels she is unreliable and the two of them clash. And that was one of the reasons she left home, but always ended back home after she ran into some kind of problem. Those problems would bring her back to Anderson Butt until something happened and she was gone again. This time is different - she has a child - and the father wants to be in her life. Meg runs home to Anderson Butt and when Josh finds her, he meets Meg's Grandma caring a shotgun with his name on the bullet. I loved this woman, she reminded me of my dear departed "Mama" (that's what we called our Grandmother.)
Josh is ,well umh every woman's dream man. He has told Meg a lot of lies - his job for one - and when she finds out will their relationship survive? Josh does not want to live the rest of his life in lies or without Meg. He fights hard to keep her, even when Grandma wants to shoot him.
This book is well written with great secondary characters like the foster child and loved loved loved the horse. (I hope to read about some of these wonderful people, Like Mac and Grandma). There are a few twists to this story that actually help Meg. Two secrets she learns about her life is sad, but she turns it around to a positive that helps her to mature and become a more responsible (sometimes) and loving person.
The ending was great. DID. NOT. SEE. THAT. ONE. COMING. But I was glad I didn't guess the ending . It was sooooooooooooooo much more than surprise as it showed just how far Meg had matured and come into her own person. I remember reading some of the reviewers talked about to much sex,in this book, and must say this book was more Vanilla that sex. I thought they were done very tastefully and were not erotic in any nature.
Look forward to reading more books from this author.
