Fawn Reed has kissed one too many toads and has finally decided that Prince Charming doesn’t exist. After countless mishaps, mistakes, and unmitigated disasters on the dating scene, she’s decided to give up and move on with her life…solo.
Everything changes, however, after Fawn runs into Levi Fremont, a homicide detective new to New York City.
Dedication to the job has rendered Levi’s love life nonexistent—until he moves in next door to the free-spirited Fawn. After a series of comedic run-ins push them together, will they finally give in to the inevitable and realize—maybe—they are perfect for each other?
I sat here for five minutes, trying to find some clever way to say how much I enjoy Aurora Rose Reynolds and her stories, but I didn’t find much. So here I am, just telling you that I have a place in my heart for Aurora Rose Reynolds and her amazing crew of characters and their love stories.
One of the big reasons that I enjoyed this story was that while it was similar to her Until Series, it was still very different. I felt that I got some of key traits that make me love this author’s books, while still getting a different spin. First, the humor in this book had me cracking up over and over. Fawn and Levi have many funny moments between them, and that sweet Muffin assists in her own way, but then you add in the families and it only gets more humorous.
Another part of the story that I appreciated was that there was some drama and a slight mystery tied in. But it never is the focus of the story and when it does show up, it actually feels like it’s more to show Levi and Fawn’s relationship growing deeper.
This author really knows how to write characters that just work together. Do you ever meet someone and you just connect with them? Maybe you barely know each other and yet you feel like you’ve been friends forever, you’re instantly comfortable, and the friendship just exists? Aurora Rose Reynolds gives that connection to her characters and its crazy to see it translated so smoothly into a story. This factor always makes the love stories so much more intense and realistic.
If you already enjoy reading books from Aurora Rose Reynolds, you will love this book. If you enjoy a solid love story with humor, sex, mystery, and everything that happens while falling in love, you will enjoy this story.
