Review Courtesy of April Hollingworth I found this such a fun and sweet book. Normally the idea of poaching in on another person's partner steers me away from a book to be honest, but there was no poaching, just immense attraction and a not had time to say it's over chat. The characters were wonderful, and you can't help routing for Rebecca and Wyatt to take a chance at happiness. I loved this story so much. A must read. The Review: It's almost Valentine's Day, 1966 and everyone expects Rebecca Winston to marry her high school/college sweetheart, Garrett Langley. According to Rebecca's mother, it's what a proper young lady should do. The problem is, the flame’s gone out on their romance. They’re still best of friends, but only friends. When Garrett’s father has a heart attack, his older brother Wyatt (an L.A. attorney) returns home for the first time in years. The attraction between Rebecca and Wyatt is immediate. Can Rebecca expect her family and, especially, Garrett to understand that her desires have changed and turned toward Wyatt? Can Wyatt get past the feeling that he’s poaching his younger brother’s girl?

When I first looked at this book, I liked the cover, with it's cutesy appeal, but wasn't sure about the blurb. To be honest, I was afraid this was going to be more New Adult that I might be comfortable with. Once I started reading, I quickly realized that wasn't going to be the case. First of all, Rebecca is 27, well past the new adult label and secondly, the book is set in 1965 well before the era of the new adult. Being set in 1965 creates a different atmosphere than we are used to reading about. It's not really contemporary, although historical certainly isn't a good fit either. The story did stay true to the time period. There was the tiniest bit of a love triangle going on, but mainly because Garrett and Rebecca hadn't officially ended their romance until it became necessary for Wyatt and Rebecca to officially be a couple. Mostly we have a sweet, clean romance with a unique and fun setting. I enjoyed this unique and interesting setting and gave the book 3 stars. Thanks to Netgalley and Wild Rose Press for the opportunity to read and review the book.

This is a cute little story set in the 60s, which made me a little nostalgic (not that I lived it but in a watching Grease on TV kind of way). It makes sense then why Rebecca would be struggling with other’s expectations – she lives at home with her parents and is still dating a guy even though the spark is gone. Meeting his brother again helps to emphasize it when the sparks between them fly. They both struggle with how their feelings might affect Garrett, but they aren’t willing to let something go on that is no longer right or pass on something that could be great. I think this could have gone a very uncomfortable way but I love the Fraser handles it without too much drama between the characters. Instead it is sweet and homey and with a great HEA.

✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ FOUR ½ -STAR ✩ REVIEW ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ ⭐ ⭐ Provided by NetGalley in Exchange for an Honest Review ⭐ ⭐ Judging a Book by it's Cover: Cute. Fun & Flirty Valentine's Day themed cartoon cover. Looking Deeper: Third-person POV. Set in the mid-60s. Rebecca is a school teacher, Garrett is an interning doctor. Their relationship has become stagnant over the past few years. When Garrett's dad has a minor heart attack, it brings Wyatt, the older brother, home. He's a D.A. in L.A. The chemistry between Wyatt and Rebecca is much more alive than what's she's ever had with Garrett. But with both sets of parents expecting Garrett and her to marry, what can she do? Enjoyable plot, good characters, solid ending. There was some minor predictability, but nothing bad. The novella does a good job at creating an illusion of a fuller, longer story, when in fact, it is a quick lunch-hour read. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Rating: PG-13 ~ Score: 4.4 ~ Stars: 4 (4.5, if I could) ------------------------------------------------
