Goodreads: Emmaline Neal needs a date. Just a date—someone to help her get through her ex-fiancé’s wedding without losing her mind. But pickings are slim in Manningsport, New York, population 715. In fact, there’s really only one option: local heartthrob Jack Holland. Everyone loves Jack, and he won’t get the wrong idea…. After all, Jack Holland would never actually be interested in a woman like Em. Especially not with his beautiful ex-wife creeping around, angling to reunite ever since he rescued a group of teens and became a local hero.
But when the wedding festivities take an unexpectedly passionate turn, Em figures it was just one crazy night. Jack is too gorgeous, too popular, to ever end up with her. So why is she the one he can talk to about his deep, dark feelings? If Em is going to get her dream man, she’ll have to start by believing in him…
Ope’s Opinion: It was a lot of fun reading about the Holland family updates and more about Jack’s story. Kristan Higgins writes stories that make me keep reading and anxiously wait for her next book.
I found it refreshing to read a wonderful love story without all the explicit sex scenes. It was nice to read about a realistic relationship. They obviously were physically attracted to each other, but all the sexual details were left out – really nice! Loved that part of the book.
The middle of the book drug on just little longer then I wish it had. Not enough for me to put the book down and not want to read it – just ready for it move along a little faster.
The ending was expected and exactly what I wanted. Ready to read another one of her books. May go back and see if I can find one I haven’t read yet.
Rating: Four Chairs – I like this book so much I know several friends to share it with.
