From the New York Times & USA Today bestselling author who brought you the Nice Girl to Love trilogy, comes A Nice GUY to Love spin-off…
Brian Sullivan has been in love twice in his lifetime. He lost his first love to early-onset Huntington’s, and he lost the other more recently…to his brother. And somehow, his heart has managed to heal itself after both. Amazingly, without therapy. That doesn’t mean Brian hasn’t gotten more wary along the way, however. In fact, he’s been thinking lately that maybe his brother’s now retired nothing-but-flings rule isn’t such a bad idea. Unfortunately, being the nice guy poster boy and all, he isn’t exactly versed in the fine art of flings. So he looks to the outrageously ‘unique,’ provokingly button-pushing Tessa Daniels for a crash course.
There’s absolutely no way he’s falling in love with this one…right?
Tessa has no idea what she was thinking telling Brian that she was some sort of fling expert. She’s never been flung before and she sure as heck doesn’t know where or how to begin flinging a guy like Brian. It was a temporary lapse in sanity, really–no doubt because of the can’t-help-but-fall-for-him brain fuzz that hits her whenever he’s around. Not only does the man have her being more herself than she’s ever been in her life, but he’s the only person she knows who seems to have as many demons and skeletons in the closet as she does. What’s more, he’s got her thinking of the one thing she stopped letting herself even hope for years ago.
A happily ever after.
Review by Venture
Brian went through a horrible traumatic loss of his wife. He is just getting over the fact that the next person he wanted to be with after getting over the loss picked his brother over him. He is always the nice guy. The one the girls never pick. He is thinking that maybe he should take on his brother’s old motto. Have an affair a month.
Tessa would probably be Brian’s polar opposite. She dresses crazy, does whatever she feels, and says what she thinks. She also is a workaholic, that spends her free time volunteering, and helping her friends. She loves to bake and she knows how Brian feels about loss. When Brian suggests having a affair she agrees. She only hopes her heart doesn’t get involved.
I absolutely loved this story. Some people might mistake this story as a simple love story. It isn’t. It is a story about hope and love that is unconditional. As a healthcare provider, I see people at their best and their worst. I am always amazed about how it can bring people closer or tear them apart. Losing a sister or wife to a disease that slowly destroys the person you love is nothing that can be easily explained. I laughed, I cried, and I smiled throughout the book. If that doesn’t convince you to read it. Nothing will. I obviously give this book, 5 books. With a note to the author that she has a new fan. Hugs.
