This book unabashedly embraces what it is – a super low angst, feel good, easy read with pure instalove. There’s nothing earth-shattering about the storyline, but it definitely hits the spot and is sure to leave you smiling. While I thought the chemistry was stronger in Catching Him, I genuinely liked both of these characters and was rooting for their HEA.
The story follows Chrissie, a baker whose love life has been put on the backburner. She’s perfectly content with her life, but it isn’t until club owner Gaston shakes things up that she realizes what she’s been missing. He’s her ideal man – loving and kind but oh so alpha, and Chrissie is just waiting for the catch. She’s not willing to take a chance on a guy who’s just in it for the chase, but Gaston’s not about to take no for an answer.
What makes this feel like pure escapism is Gaston – he’s almost too good to be true, and isn’t at all resistant to settling into a relationship immediately. He’s pretty darn swoonworthy, and thinks of Chrissie as his from the beginning. I was kind of shocked by just how quickly things progress between them. If you like an instalove romance, it’s certainly well done here and the exceedingly low angst tone of the book makes it a light and easy read. It’s not the kind of book that I’m going to read again and again, but it’s a sweet and heartwarming story with some sexiness. I received an ARC and am voluntarily leaving a review.
