Book Description: Wedding photographer Mackensie “Mac” Elliot is most at home behind the camera, but her focus is shattered moments before an important wedding rehearsal when she bumps into the bride-to-be’s brother…an encounter that has them both seeing stars.
A stable, safe English teacher, Carter Maguire is definitely not Mac’s type. But a casual fling might be just what she needs to take her mind off bridezillas. Of course, casual flings can turn into something more when you least expect it. And Mac will have to turn to her three best friends—and business partners—to see her way to her own happy ending.
Captivation: I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy this book much… Though I am a fan of Nora Roberts, I was weary of this series for some reason known only to my deep-down subconscious. Being a fan of Roberts, though, I opted to give it a shot. This book was didn’t hold my undivided attention or cause constant temptation to disregard all around me, but it was a good read when I was sitting down and relaxing.
Sizzle: This book had some majorly sweet moments, the male character, Carter, taking the full brunt of my attention with his characteristics and personality. This book doesn’t contain the absolute best in spine-tingling intimacy scenes, but it does have it’s good parts.
Romance: The romance in this one was pretty cute. The relationship with the two main characters builds with a sweet fascination, expressing the character thoughts, personalities, and characteristics into each action and inner-dialog. Quite a sweet romance.
Enjoyment: I did enjoy this book. It wasn’t the ultimately captivating book in the world, but it had a truly sweet factor to it, that makes you end the book feeling happy.
Literacy: Now, I’m no English professor, but this book had quite a few grammatical errors. A few typo errors. For an author as well known as Roberts, I’d have expected the higher end of professional editing, but it was not to be.
Overall, I enjoy this book. It’s a sweet romance, and a good read when I need a break from some of the more suspenseful ones I often end up reading. It is on my read-again book shelf, though is not in my top list of ultimate favorite books ever.
