Not only is Rachel Gibson a new-to-me author, but she also looks to have quite a few books I’ll be able to get from my online library.  Since I really enjoyed this story, that’s a big Yay!!!

There were so many great things about this book.  The hero, Henry, is patient and kind even if Vivian is being a bit curt with him at first.  To be fair to Vivian, she has some old baggage when it comes to Henry and his family so she has reasons to keep a protective wall up with him.  The thing is, that wall keeps slipping.  It’s hard to resist a kind, sexy, strong shoulder to lean on.

I wasn’t sure if Nonnie or Spence or even Henry could fully win me over, but somehow they did…eventually.  Honestly, the same goes for Vivian.  After all, she is a Hollywood superstar who has a big chip on her shoulder.  Her attitude could make or break this book.  Luckily, the author did a wonderful job and it made the book.

There were things most readers will see coming from a mile away, but that’s okay.  It was still fun to read how it played out.  Although there was one small part that had me worried.  There is a whole scene between Vivian and Henry in one chapter that is basically recapped in the next chapter as the characters are remembering their time together.  Since this is my first read of a Rachel Gibson book, I wasn’t sure if this was something the author is known to do at that was going to repeat throughout the book.  Thankfully, it was just the one time so I think it was just a fluke.

Not only was this story fun, but it also gave me all the feels.  That’s a good thing when reading this genre.  I hope I find all of this author’s other books as engaging as this one.
