I’ve really enjoyed all of Abigail Strom’s other series (Love, Hart University, Me) so decided to finally get around to reading some of her earlier works. Luckily, my local library had the first in the Landry series available. Unfortunately, they don’t have any of the others in the series. But where there’s a will there’s a way because I really enjoyed this story.
This is a super sweet story with a lot of heart and all the feels. When we first meet the millionaire bachelor Rick it’s easy to see he’s a good guy, even if his grandmother worries about his relationship status. Allison is chock full of spunky attitude and will always fight for what she thinks is the right thing. The two of them together is instant chemistry.
This story moves super fast. The book is not much over 200 pages so that’s a necessity. For some reason it didn’t come across as insta-love to me although I’m sure there are plenty that will see it that way since the main part of the story unfolds over less than a month. But I see it more as two people who weren’t interested on love until the right person came along and flipped their beliefs on their heads.
This author is such a solid writer, even back in the beginning of her published works. Very impressive.
