This novel is full of cute dogs, fancy French food, sun-kissed locations, and plenty of steamy intimate scenes.
I loved the message the author is sending–you’re more than the labels others put on you.
I am in agreement with Joanna when she distrusts intense blue eyes and charming Irish good looks. I’ve read too many romance novels to know that those aren’t necessarily good things. 🙂
But Cal (the charming guy in question) redeems himself with his sensitivity, empathy, and understanding–even in the face of monetary temptation.
I loved the scene where Joanna sticks up for herself in front of Sally and Aiden. I think it is the best one in this story.
One thing’s for sure–dogs and sensitive men make the whole world better!
Poppy and Leo’s wedding preparations were a distraction I did not need, and I was tempted to skip over those sections to get to the meatier part of the story.
Joanna has this whole internal dialogue going on in her head each time she meets a hurdle, and it is hard not to empathize with her being unable to trust after being hurt so badly.
I enjoyed this romance set in the south of France which also sends a thoughtful message to readers to not limit yourself to the labels that others give you.
Thank you to the author and Rachel’s Random Resources for my review copy!
