Julia Boyd has dated more than her share of jerks, and she’s done even pretending to like them. Putting her dating life on hold and focusing on her event planning career is a much safer bet for the blue-eyed blonde…until she meets her newest client.
Organizing the opening for an art gallery should be a breeze for Julia, but gallery owner Alex Holt is becoming very distracting. Tall and muscular with enough charisma and sexy dimples to make Julia swoon, Alex could be the perfect man. The two of them click immediately, creating enough witty banter to ignite sparks.
But just before flames of passion can erupt with Alex, Julia begins planning an engagement party…and learns the groom is Aiden, the man who broke her heart years ago. When Aiden admits that he still has feelings for Julia, everything changes. Should she seek shelter in the familiarity of the past, or should she risk everything on a brand-new love?
I absolutely loved Julia. Her wit, humor, sarcasm and lack of filter made her an absolute favorite. There was a fixed grin on my face while inhaling the pages. Alex and Julia are a great match and author Barbie Bohrman’s writing was smooth, charming and entertaining. The character development was spot on and the story developed at a delicious pace. The supporting characters were fabulous, brought so much to the story that they really added to the book. Give this a try and find your next book crush. 4.5 Stars
