I took this book to the beach with me and it was just perfect.
It's a light fun read that's not overly fluffy or vacant. The characters are mostly likable and the scenarios are real. You can simply enjoy it with moderate concentration... and there's nothing wrong with that!
Emma is your average 30 something size 12 regular person. Decent looks, not a stunner. Has an interesting but not overly glamorous job at Florida! magazine and would love to be in a relationship but doesn't think she'll die without it. In other words, she's one of us.
She also happens to have a lovely set of women as her Moms. While that - at one time - might have set her apart a little, it's more of a footnote in today's world.
She's surrounded by fascinating men, but none of them over the top. The "hottest" guy is the NASCAR studmuffin who might appear to be the best thing since sliced bread to the rest of the world, but Emma knew him in high school and doesn't fall for what the tabloids and swooners say.
Emma has a crush on her Editor boss, dates the local cop, is friends with the would be novelist who sells self published short novella's on Amazon while looking for a publisher for his masterpiece, and of course the NASCAR dude.
Which one of these men might be a good match for Emma...... read and find out!
