Received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
By the nature of the genre, it’s likely that once you’ve read about a dozen contemporary romances, you have discovered all the different plots and ‘twists’ in romances and all the rest of the books in genre are just more of the same with a few tweaks here and there.
However, what this book does best is the areas where it differs from the norm: Kelsey’s mother didn’t die in a car crash – she died on her mountain and she doesn’t have a close cosy relationship with her father as the result of losing her mother at a young age; Ross, although divorced with three children, actually gets on with an ex and they didn’t divorce due to an extra-marital affair.
It is because of these differences that makes the book a refreshing change and really endeared me to the couple. Russ’s children were loveable as well, even Luke! Kudos to the author for giving Kelsey a very different profession and lifestyle than you find in a typical romance.
