For a quick and easy read, for a very gentle enemies-to-lovers trope, for a rich guy on a tropical island, for a book about authors
Welcome to Little Bridge, one of the smallest, most beautiful islands in the Florida Keys.
Jo Wright always swore she’d never step foot on Little Bridge Island—not as long as her nemesis, bestselling author Will Price, is living there.
Then Jo’s given an offer she can’t refuse: an all-expense-paid trip to speak and sign at the island’s first-ever book festival.
Even though arrogant Will is the last person Jo wants to see, she could really use the festival’s more-than-generous speaking fee. She’s suffering from a crippling case of writer’s block on the next instalment of her bestselling children’s series, and her father needs financial help as well.
Then Jo hears that Will is off-island on the set of the film of his next book. Hallelujah!
But when she arrives on Little Bridge, Jo is in for a shock: Will is not only at the book festival, but seems genuinely sorry for his past actions—and more than willing not only to make amends but prove to Jo that he’s a changed man.
Things seem to be looking up—until disaster strikes, causing Jo to wonder: Do any of us ever really know anyone?
I’m not sure if I should recommend this one to you or not, because it was good not great. If you’re heading to the beach anytime soon, this is a good one to bring along, but you probably don’t need to try working it into your TBR any time soon. We both know you don’t have room for any non-stellar titles right now. 😂
So I’m kind of torn on this one. It was the ol’ enemies to lovers trope… kind of. Because only one character thought they were enemies. I kind of loved that, because it made some of their interactions hilariously one-sided and off-kilter when they didn’t go the way the MC expected. She’s all fired up and ready to fight, and dude is just like “you’re right, I’m sorry” and then MC doesn’t know what to do with her quick and easy win. So then she just starts to fall in love, because what else do you do when you hear the words “you’re right, I’m sorry” from a man? That’s a KEEPER, right there! 😏
So the romance was pretty decent. It wasn’t very explicit, more implied, so this is a public-transit-friendly title. Besides that, the side characters and male interest had some of their own plot issues that were fun little diversions to the main story. I definitely laughed out loud when reading this one, but you know I laugh easily. 😅 Still, if you can solve the magician’s magic trick before the characters do, I will be VERY impressed.
Basically, it’s not terrible, but don’t go breaking down the door for it. You can probably just read it after the 2 month wait that I’m sure the library has on all copies right now. Get that hold in and pick it up later.
