From the New York Times & USA Today bestselling author who brought you the Nice Girl to Love trilogy, comes A Nice GUY to Love spin-off...
Brian Sullivan has been in love twice in his lifetime. He lost his first love to early-onset Huntington's, and he lost the other more recently...to his brother. And somehow, his heart has managed to heal itself after both. Amazingly, without therapy. That doesn't mean Brian hasn't gotten more wary along the way, however. In fact, he's been thinking lately that maybe his brother's now retired nothing-but-flings rule isn't such a bad idea. Unfortunately, being the nice guy poster boy and all, he isn't exactly versed in the fine art of flings. So he looks to the outrageously 'unique,' provokingly button-pushing Tessa Daniels for a crash course.
There's absolutely no way he's falling in love with this one...right?
Tessa has no idea what she was thinking telling Brian that she was some sort of fling expert. She's never been flung before and she sure as heck doesn't know where or how to begin flinging a guy like Brian. It was a temporary lapse in sanity, really--no doubt because of the can't-help-but-fall-for-him brain fuzz that hits her whenever he's around. Not only does the man have her being more herself than she's ever been in her life, but he's the only person she knows who seems to have as many demons and skeletons in the closet as she does. What's more, he's got her thinking of the one thing she stopped letting herself even hope for years ago.
A happily ever after.
I received this book for free from The Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I have mentioned this before, but don’t you find it funny when you read in a specific genre, and something minor like a location, similar themes or even the smallest details seem to pop up? Purely coincidence, I’m sure–but this is the third book in a row that has something to do with a Medical Condition. It’s weird.
Finding the Right Girl is a spin-off novel of Nice Girl To Love series. Having not read that series and hoping that this wouldn’t have made a difference in the overall storyline, I drove right in. I am not usually a fluffy romance type. However, as much I like to complain about it, I do like some angst. I like stories where the HEA isn’t so obviously portrayed. So, this really isn’t a typical read for me but I do like to step outside my usual for something different.
Although I didn’t read the previous books by Violet, I do think it would have made a HUGE impact on my connection to the characters had I did. Apparently Brian has been through some shit. Sure, we get a back story but it felt like a glimpse verses what I felt like I SHOULD have known. Could this be read as a standalone? Sure, I did. I just think I would have appreciated everything more had I know more about Brian and Tessa’s situation. It was a sweet love story and I actually enjoyed them together.
Overall– I liked it. Smooth writing, pacing with a sweet romance makes this one a quick read. I recommend this to those who are die-hard romance readers.
