My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I’m going to start off by saying I absolutely loved this book. This is the very first book I have read by this author and I am so glad that I was given a copy of this book for an honest review. I am definitely following this author now and look forward to reading other books by her.
Callie (Callista) is a best selling author and is having difficulties writing her next book. With a deadline looming her editor has her stay in Martha’s Vineyard for the winter hoping a change of scenery is just what Callie needs to get her creativity flowing. I think it so neat that a romance author is writing about a romance author. Who can relate to a character better than that! I could actually feel Callie’s struggles with her writer’s block.
Her seriously hot neighbor, Jackson Brody and her become very good friends. They are both leery of ‘relationships’ . Jackson was dealt the biggest blow a person can get in his marriage. His wife left him for his best friend. I think it goes without saying that he struggles with the idea of anything long term and with Callie only here for the winter it seems ideal that they pal around together. Callie doesn’t have much experience with relationships and does her best to keep Jackson at arms length at first. The more they hang around together the deeper their friendship seems to get.
They start building a future together and one huge misunderstanding tears it all apart. There is a reason why ex’s are ex’s. That’s the only spoiler I’m going to give on that.
Through tragedy they have a possible second chance. They just both have to be willing to be willing to be responsive, forgive and move on.
I felt this book very well written. I love that as I was reading a long that I laughed, I cried, and I actually got mad. I love a book that sucks me in that much.
