Goodreads: Before you get down on bended knee…
…you should be pretty darn sure the answer will be yes. For ten years, Connor O’Rourke has been waiting for Jessica Dunn to take their on-again, off-again relationship public, and he thinks the time has come. His restaurant is thriving, she’s got her dream job at Blue Heron Vineyard—it’s the perfect time to get married.
When he pops the question, however, her answer is a fond but firm no. If it ain’t broke, why fix it? Jess has her hands full with her younger brother, who’s now living with her full-time, and a great career after years of waitressing. What she and Connor have is perfect: friends with an excellent benefits package. Besides, with her difficult past (and reputation), she’s positive married life isn’t for her.
But this time, Connor says it’s all or nothing. If she doesn’t want to marry him, he’ll find someone who does. Easier said than done, given that he’s never loved anyone but her. And maybe Jessica isn’t quite as sure as she thinks…
Ope’s Opinion: Kristan Higgins did it again. She wrote captivating characters that you just can’t help but care about.
As I was reading this book, I was moving into my new home and the holidays were keeping us busy. Even with all that, I found myself wanting to come back and have the quiet time to read this book. It was a real escape for me. Kristan Higgins made it a relaxing time.
This can be read alone, but I really do suggest starting from the beginning. Each book adds to the characters you already know.
