This is a story that really pulled me in from the begining. Each of the characters have interesting back stories that make them very compelling and complicated. There are a lot of messages to learn throughout the story about acceptance and forgiveness and destinty, but those are woven into the story in a way that is not heavy handed and add to the experience rather than pull the reader out.
There really is a lot to love about this book. I love how Hudson King got his name. I enjoyed the bit of mystery through the book. I enjoyed the absurdness of Ellie's ex-fiance.
This is a quick read and could easily be read as a stand alone. It is a great introduction to anyone who has never read one of Brenda Novak's Contemporary Romances before.
OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
