Fiction / to review

So this is not a romance if anyone thinks that, but, it does have a happy ending. The author does manage to sneak in some romance finally in the last few chapters. Because we all need happiness.

Harriet was nice, but oh the trauma from a previous relationship. The more I heard the more I felt for her, and then when that thing happened. Omg, my heart broke. My heart broke! Her ex is the world biggest asshat. And if that wasn't the worst, her latest ex might not have been the worst, but still an idiot.

Afte a breakup she finds a new place to live. It happens to be with a hottie, but they are both coming out from relationships, and they have their issues to work out.

I enjoyed the book. It was a hard one to put down.

Great narration.  I was there with everyone. A good range of voices and a book that really pulled you in.

There are some heavy subjects in this one. I could not put it down. I wanted to Harriet to be happy, but destiny kept throwing things at her. I raced towards the end. I could not put it down.

Harriet Hatley is the most in-demand wedding photographer in town, but she doesn’t believe in romance, loathes the idea of marriage, and thinks chocolate fountains are an abomination. Which is why, when her long-time partner proposes, she panics. Suddenly Harriet is single…and living down the hall from her ex. She needs a new apartment, like, yesterday.

Enter Cal Clarke, a hopeless romantic who just experienced his own wedding-related disaster. Harriet and Cal are like chalk and cheese, but as they go from strangers to roommates to friends, it becomes clear they’re both running from something. When Harriet’s most heavily guarded secret comes to light, her world implodes. And Cal, with his witty humor and gentle advice, is a surprising source of calm at the center of the storm.

With her career, friendships, and reputation on the line, Harriet must finally face her past in order to take control of her future. Because if she’s willing to stop playing it safe and risk everything to share her truth, real love and happiness may be waiting on the other side....


  1. great review Blodeuedd I'm glad things worked out for them but oh my the trauma must have been hard to listen too.

    1. I felt so sorry for her, her ex was a pig

  2. Love it when a book is hard to put down!

  3. Sounds like I might find this a read I 'd like.

  4. WOMEN'S FICTION! *runs and hides* I just read one of her books back at the beginning of the year and really enjoyed it.

    1. And the cover fools you, it looks to be all about love

  5. I would have totally thought romance. It does sound good.
