Inspiration can come from the most unlikely—and inconvenient—sources.
Kara Sullivan’s life is full of love—albeit fictional. As a bestselling romance novelist and influential bookstagrammer, she’s fine with getting her happily-ever-after fix between the covers of a book.
But right now? Not only is Kara’s best friend getting married next week—which means big wedding stress—but the deadline for her next novel is looming, and she hasn’t written a single word. The last thing she needs is for her infuriating first love, Ryan Thompson, to suddenly appear in the wedding party. But Ryan’s unexpected arrival sparks a creative awakening in Kara that inspires the steamy historical romance she desperately needs to deliver.
With her wedding duties intensifying, her deadline getting closer by the second and her bills not paying themselves, Kara knows there’s only one way for her to finish her book and to give her characters the ever-after they deserve. But can she embrace the unlikely, ruggedly handsome muse—who pushes every one of her buttons—to save the wedding, her career and, just maybe, write her own happy ending?
Fantastic rom-com with such real depictions of how a lot of relationships happen nowadays, especially in your 30s. That just made me appreciate this book so much more.
I have to commend Kate Bromley for showing that relationships can be sticky and things don’t always work out how you plan. That sometimes you have to still do things for yourself. I also adored that Kara was a size eight, quirky, and happy with who she is. It was so refreshing to see someone I completely relate to in so many aspects.
I loved Ryan and Duke even though Ryan pretty much does my absolute number one no-no in a relationship, he still was charming to me.
Overall, a wonderful read for book lovers everywhere.
