Synopsis: In New York Times bestselling author Rachel Gibson's newest novella, Vince Haven and Sadie Hollowell are headed to the altar, and all their friends are headed to Lovett, Texas, to join them for the party of the year.
But Becca Ramsey doesn't have time for all that. Fresh out of beauty school, Becca's all business . . . and the last thing she needs is bad boy Nate Parrish anywhere in her life.
In the past, Nate was trouble. He's been trying to repair his reputation—heck, he's even got just one girlfriend. The problem is, she isn't Becca. Now Nate's in a whole lot of hot water. He needs to get Becca from "I won't" to "I do" . . . but how can he do that when she won't even say "I might"?
What I Thought:
I fell in love with Nathan Parrish in When Daisy's Back in Town. He was a moody teenager not happy with moving to a new place then and now he's all grown up. I can't tell you how excited I was when I found out he was getting his own story. I would've loved to have read a full length novel about him, but I'm happy with this novella as opposed to just wondering about him.
I liked Becca. She's fresh, determined to succeed, and a good friend. I loved her attitude towards life. She's also got a bubbly personality. I will admit to swooning, just like her, when she saw Nathan for the first time. I liked Nathan. He was easy going and someone who had a good head on his shoulders for the most part.
Becca and Nathan had great chemistry. You could feel it and I loved it. It was attraction at first sight. Of course that's something known to strike Parrish men. My only issue with the story was that I didn't agree with some of Nathan's decisions even if I understood his rationale in handling things differently. He did end up causing problems for himself and others around him. I didn't like seeing and feeling the fall out of what happened.
While I enjoyed reading the story, what Nathan did throw me. I would've never thought in a million years Nathan would hurt someone like he did. Especially since I know how and who he was raised by. I've read and absolutely loved the other books in this series. I'm glad to see everyone still going strong. Rachel Gibson has written a fine story with some surprises I don't think any of her readers saw coming. I do hope to read more about Becca and Nathan in the future.
