Books like this are why I fell in love with the romance genre as a teen. Throughout this book there were multiple instances of me catching my breath, sighing, tearing up, laughing, my heart skipping beats and just plan old delight.
That is what this read was…simply delightful.
Mitch and Fay are both believable characters that are richly woven. The supporting cast is also alive and three dimensional. It’s a sweet romance that doesn’t show us behind the bedroom door but the foreplay is breathtaking. And there is a lot of foreplay.
Both the hero and heroine volunteer at a children’s hospital on weekends and run into each other when visiting the same young patient. A kiss in the rain leads to a few sporadic dates and some really hot kisses. Slowly a relationship develops but Fay can’t figure out why Mitch won’t make love to her.
Mitch does not have much experience with women as he spent most of this oat sowing days very ill due to a heart condition. Fay is a sex education teacher that he is sure has so much experience with men he won’t stand a chance.
The relationship is a joy to watch develop. While the main problem in this relationship makes sense I wonder if it’s actually plausible for people in this age group (late 20’s). There wasn’t any need for suspended belief for me but some people might question that.
I wholeheartedly recommend this book for fans of sweet romances, alpha heroes that are rediscovering their alpha-ness, heroines who are not bogged down with self esteem issues and a solid HEA. So glad I took a chance on this book.
