Overview

She’s back, but this time she’s a mother…intent on protecting her young.

Two years after her husband’s death, Kate Marshall returns home seeking security and stability for her three-year-old daughter. But when her path crosses with ‘the one who got away’…her husband’s best friend, she has to fight the desire to be with him for the sake of further heartbreak for her and her daughter.

A tough, straight talking theatrical agent, Mark Johnston is dangerously handsome, exceedingly rich, irresistibly charming – and branded by the tabloids as one of the UK’s most eligible bachelors. So even though Mark lost the girl of his dreams to his best friend, he finds no hardship in being single. Or so he thought.Determined not to lose her a second time, Mark has to find a way to convince her they can work. But can Kate cope with the media interest and ruthless, money-hungry clients surrounding him, being anywhere near her daughter? Or accept that Mark Johnston is really the family man he claims to be?

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book




    Getting It Right This Time was an average contemporary romance novel that lacked the spark that would have made it into a good book.




    The plot of Getting It Right This Time was very generic and it lacked any inspiration to make it stand out from all the similar novels in this genre. The entire plot of the novel was completely linear as there was no surprise plot twists anywhere in the novel and the conclusion was obvious from the first chapter. Also, there was a too quick and obvious resolution for the few issues that did plague the main characters; which made it seem like it hadn’t been necessary for most of the book to have passed before these solutions became apparent.




    The main characters would have been better suited as secondary characters as they weren’t interesting or intriguing enough to supplement the plot used for this novel. Furthermore, the relationship between the two main characters, which formed the basis of Getting It Right This Time’s plot, lacked any real chemistry and often did not feel very believable. Their feelings for each other developed extremely quickly and while this could have been explained by their unresolved past feelings it would have been more realistic if there were a few scenes that depicted each of them adjusting to the other’s personal development.




    Overall, Getting It Right This Time was a very average read that doesn’t stand out in the contemporary romance genre. However, it would still be worth a read for contemporary romance fans that do not mind their contemporary romances having rather generic characters and linear plots.
