***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Nikki Moore knows life is unfair. Love and happiness is just an illusion. Closed off, shy, and insecure, happiness has a short life span for Nikki. To avoid any more pain, she withdraws from emotions and the idea of love.
Jack Thompson exudes confidence. A winning smile. He’s a successful business owner, from a loving family, and friends surround him all his life. And he has his eye set on Nikki. A workaholic, Nikki lives her life for work.
Jack’s charisma and openness pulls her in from every angle. She slowly learns to trust someone with her deepest secrets.
With deception after deception, trust comes very hard for Nikki. When these two meet, Nikki is changed.
But fear always has a way of winning…
The foodie part of me loved Nikki’s restaurant as a backdrop. I loved all of the cooking & food related scenes, very well-written with description of the tastes and smells, made me feel like I was right there eating too! I also loved the bar atmosphere descriptions, it felt very real.
I really felt for Nikki, her life really handed her some challenges, and the part where she opens up to Jack really made me feel her pain, I like where the plot lines are heading with her life intertwined with Jack.
I was a little disappointed at the ending and how Nikki reacted, but I can tell you, that I will definitely be reading further additions to the series to see how it all ties together, and to see how certain plot lines are carried out.
I just wish some of the unnecessary plot aspects could have been taken out, I felt like sometimes there were too many directions for the story to head in, and I wish more time could have been focused on Jack & Nikki. Don’t get me wrong, I liked them, but just wish there was more development of their relationship.There were a few minor grammar issues, but those were the only things holding me back from a 5 star rating. I would definitely recommend if you are looking for an interesting romance read!
