Nicole Garrett, a self-proclaimed nerd, has had her future planned out for years. Taking chances has never appealed to her on any level, but growing up means adapting to change and accepting that life moves on no matter what. With her best friends, Piper and Stephanie both starting families of their own, Nicole finds herself concentrating harder on her plan to become a doctor, leaving little time for anything else, other than working at the local pub to help cover her living expenses. There is nothing worth more to her than making something of herself—unless you count Corey Tate. 

Corey Tate isn’t a self-proclaimed anything. He doesn’t care enough. But ask anyone who has ever been around him and they’ll tell you he’s a bad-boy-recluse, who has a somewhat short fuse. He works hard and plays harder. Even though he has no clue what is involved in having an authentic relationship with a woman, Nicole Garrett has him curious enough to consider trying. Having zero experience in relationships proves to be a challenge for him, both mentally and emotionally. 

Timing is everything, right? How much time has to pass before the moment is lost? Two years of knowing glances, private talks, and a connection that surprises them both, come to a head when Corey draws a line in the sand. Can these two very different people find their way to a love that can last forever, or will their own flaws ruin what could have been? If Corey and Nicole could get out of their own heads, they might just find out the difference between falling in love and being in love.

My Thoughts

Thank you to NetGalley and CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform for approving me to read and review this book. This is actually book 3 in a series, but I decided to not let this put me off.

Nicole really is such a nerd, but she’s fantastic. She’s strong willed and very determined. She is in medical school training to become a pediatric doctor. I think she is absolutely fantastic.Corey works in construction and is a short fused bad boy, the complete opposite of Nicole and yet after 2 years they both find love. Neither Nicole or Corey had any experience at being in relationships but they made it work, for a while. I’m not going to give away any spoilers so you’ll have to find out what happens for yourselves and read the book. These two people are definitely made for each other and belong together.

I loved this book and I’m definitely going to be finding the other 2 in the series to read. It truly was beautifully written and I found some parts were laughable and I found myself with a silly grin on my face (with the partner looking at me like I’m bonkers). Then towards the end I found myself with tears in my eyes. It truly is a beautiful story and it shows that sometimes love does conquer all.

I’m definitely giving this book a 5/5, it’s beautiful, and it really does make me want to read the whole series.
