He survived combat…but will he fight for love?
Former Army Captain and venture capitalist Preston Guthrie has always had a thing for Cat Kingston, but he never felt like he could date his best friend’s sister. Plus, he’s a wrong-side-of-the-tracks guy and she’s a white-picket-fence kind of woman. Yet when they met again just before he was deployed, sparks flew. A fire ignited. And the heat was hot. For the first time, he thought a relationship with her might be possible…until an injury in the war changed everything…
Journalist Cat Kingston had a rough couple of years, surviving a broken engagement and the loss of her job. But connecting with Preston last fall seemed right. They shared steamy Skype sessions while he was overseas—until he was wounded, and cut her off without explanation. Now he’s back in town to be the Best Man for her sister’s wedding…and she wants answers.
Preston’s struggling with a leg wound, but the war scarred him on the inside, too. When Cat pays him a surprise visit and her brother catches them in a compromising position, Preston tells him they’re dating. He’s not sure how he can spend the entire wedding week fake-dating her when the chemistry between them feels anything but…
And, there was something about the writing, the characters and the actual story that kept me reading.
I liked Cat and Preston. A lot. They had great chemistry, and they were a lot of fun together, even when he was focused on pushing him away.
I liked the pacing of this too...I liked that it was a friends to lovers to friends to lovers, but with enough of the connection built into the beginning (and enough of his internal dialog) the reader could be ok with the time it took them to get together because it was working that way, and it was developing in a way that worked.
I also loved the epilogue. I like stories that have happy endings. I think this is why I read romance, because it is a happy ending.
This one delivered nicely.
