The best day of his life, the worst day of hers.

Back in college, Marco Dawson never thought of Belle as anything more than a friend. If she had crossed his mind on his wedding day, it was probably only to wonder why she hadn’t shown up to be a bridesmaid. After all, his new wife was her old roommate. Seven years have passed since then, and Belle just found out that Marco is divorced and vacationing with his family in an elegant Cancun resort. She’s not about to let the right man get away twice. She heads to the resort where she plans to casually bump into Marco and ignite some romantic flames.

But Belle hadn’t planned on one thing: Flynn Dawson, Marco’s handsome, charming, and determined twin brother. He thinks Marco and his ex-wife can make amends and he’s not about to let Belle stand in the way.

Part Sabrina, part While You Were Sleeping, romantic comedy readers will eat this book up!

Review

Isabelle has loves Marco since she laid eyes on him in seven years ago. Even her friend and roommate marrying him didn’t defuse her feelings for him. And no man has ever really lived up to the wonderful image of Marco.

Now, seven years later, Belle, as she goes by now, is a successful designer and a lot more confident than she was back then. She can sure make men turn heads.

When Miss Pearl tells her about Marco getting a divorce, and being in Cancun for a week’s holiday, she makes a rash and impromptu decision to take a week of and head out to Cancun. She’s hoping to ‘run into’ Marco and now he is free and available, she is sure to win him over once and for all.

She hadn’t counted on Flynn, Marco’s very sexy and put together twin brother, or Daisy, Marco’s ex-wife trying to win Marco’s affection.

All of this sets of a chain of events that a rather funny, and soon of reveals the very great chemistry between Flynn and Belle.

I liked the lightness of this read. It has some fun to it, a lot of sweet, and it was a read that pulled me in and had me continuing at a fast pace. I liked that Belle got to figure at some things in life. It only goes to show how sometimes we in life can waste so much of our precious time regretting, stewing, worrying about something, that eventually we realize is completely based on something untrue. Belle spent seven years loving Marco, or rather the idea of Marco, to finally realize that he was nothing like what she wanted in a man. He really was not a good fit for her. She lost a good friend in the process because she was so hurt and upset to look past her own feelings, and hung onto them for way too long.

Even though this book was rather light and fluffy, there were some good lessons to learn in this book, and I enjoyed discovering them, and contemplating them as I went on this fun adventure with this fun, quirky cast.

It was nice to return to a Janette Rallison book. I first read one of her books when I was a teenager, I guess about 15, and she made me fall in love with the romance genre, and dream away about hunky boys and blue eyes you could drown in.

About the Author

janetterallison

Janette Rallison is old. Don’t ask how old, because it isn’t polite. Let’s just say she’s older than she’d like to be and leave it at that.

Janette lives in Chandler, Arizona with her husband, five children and enough cats to classify her as “an eccentric cat lady.” She did not do this on purpose. (The cats, that is; she had the children on purpose.) Every single one of the felines showed up on its own and refuses to leave. Not even the family’s fearless little Westie dog can drive them off.

Since Janette has five children and deadlines to write books, she doesn’t have much time left over for hobbies. But since this is the internet and you can’t actually check up to see if anything on this site is true, let’s just say she enjoys dancing, scuba diving, horse back riding and long talks with Orlando Bloom. (Well, I never said he answers back.)
