Book & Author Details:
Finding a Husband by Kristen Casey
Publication date: December 5th 2017
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Molly O’Connell does not need a man. Boston is filled with men, few of them reliable. What she does need is a job, and she knows exactly which one she wants—there’s a law firm hiring down in Wilmington, North Carolina, and it’s an ideal opportunity. Warm weather, pristine beaches, a reliable paycheck…how could she go wrong? Heck, her brother-in-law has even hooked her up with a tour guide. It’s perfect.
Jake Alexander knows Molly is off-limits. Man, does he ever know. But when he agreed to show her around town as a favor to a friend, he never expected her to be quite so incredible. Gorgeous. Unforgettable. And his total inability to think of anything but her is going to be trouble with a capital T. Molly, bless her heart, is interviewing with his dad’s law firm—and if his guess is right, she’s a shoo-in. And Jake…well, he’s sort of engaged. God help him, he probably should have mentioned that right from the beginning.
Why does Molly have to fall for the one man in creation she shouldn’t want? And can she make a life for herself in this new place without him? Wait and see.
Book Three in the Second Chances series. This book contains no cliff hangers, no cheating, and one guaranteed happily-ever-after!
I don’t usually read books which are (on the face of it) potentially about cheating. And yet, I chose this one. Fortunately, that wasn’t a mistake, because whilst Jake skirts very close to the line, in the context of this story, I don’t really think that he crosses it. And that is as much as I am going to say for fear of spoilers.
These two protagonists are a bit of an odd match up. For an apparently switched on lawyer, capable of holding her own during an extended interview process, Molly is strangely oblivious to things. And Jake just doesn’t really strike me as the kind of personality that changes his approach, dependant upon others’ views of him.
That said, I enjoyed the interaction between them and when the crisis arrived (come on, you knew it was going to happen) I thought that the way it played out and subsequent events actually strengthen the overall story.
I’m not sure that I would pick up previous books in the series, but I enjoyed reading this one.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
