My rating: 5 stars / It was amazing
What happens when a dashing Englishman and an almost famous pianist collide? Sparks. And lots of them.
Call’s life always seems to be on the cusp of working out, only to unravel at the last moment. For instance, when she meets the guy. The man she’s been fantasizing about from afar. The one who walks his beautiful Siberian husky around her neighborhood. Their first meeting is nothing like she hoped; in fact, she wishes she never met him.
Charles Beckett is in need of a good dog-sitter, but he gets more than he bargained for when a cheeky American bartender shows up at his house fifteen minutes late. The job interview quickly turns into a sparring match and Call leaves vowing to run him over with her truck the next time she sees him.
It’s up to their dogs now to bring the pair together.
Will Call finally have one of her dreams come true? Or will the Englishman be another check mark in her long list of unrealized promises?
Oh. My. Cuteness. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this book! It's definitely lighter on the angst-factor than the first book in the Pianos and Promises series, and the banter is priceless. Call is a super talented musician, but after her mother passes away she's just trying to stay afloat while taking care of her teenage brother. Her first meeting with Beck is a hilarious disaster- I loved how she held her own and left a memorable impression. He is undeniably intrigued by her despite his assumptions, and the attraction between them grows quickly even as they learn more about each other and their personal struggles. I appreciate that the story has deeper layers while still keeping a fun dialogue going throughout. Even though it is technically a novella it reads like a full-length book with a complete story and character arc. Highly recommend to fans of clean contemporary romance!
(Thank you to the author for a copy of the book; this is my honest review)
