Well this book was a very nice surprise and just what I needed.
It’s flirty, funny, light, sad too with topics like grief and a little bit angsty when you realize there are forces conspiring against the love story of our main characters.
Both main characters are genuinely good persons and they have amazing crazy friends (Sloane) and great family (Jason).
I hadn’t read Abby Jimenez’s other book but the positive reviews this story got had me take a chance on it and I am very happy I have done this!
I had a big smile on my face for the most part of the story, from the unconventional meet of Sloan with Tucker, our dog till the touring.
At the beginning on the story, Sloan is a shadow of her former self as she is still grieving her fiancé’s death two years ago. In the author’s note, Abby will talk about something like complicated grief or something like that, affecting about 10% of the people who lost a loved one.
Sloan is not taking care of her, eating what her friends bring her, living in a house slowly falling apart etc.
Tucker literally jumping in her life will be like a life vest.
Soon she’ll go out, will exercise and begin to love life again.
That’s why when his owner manifests himself after more than two weeks that Sloan is not ready to give the puppy back without a fight.
Follows a string of text messages and then phone calls very funny and flirty that had me smiling big time!
Jason will be smitten with Sloan right from the start.
As someone said later in the book, men like him, raised by parents besotted with each other for decades, mate for life.
I really loved Jason’s unrelenting pursuit of Sloan.
He was a man on a mission: woo his girl and I really appreciate that in my male characters.
But of course, life is complicated, especially when you work in the music industry and are about to go on a huge tour across the world.
I think Abby probably did a great job unveiling the stress and strain of such life as well as some unsavory practices from that industry.
I smiled, laughed, cried, swooned, dreamed, hoped, raged and …every emotion in between.
Perfect for fans of romance being an hybrid between romcom and drama.
Thanks for reading.
