What if the person who broke your heart turned out to be the only one who could mend it?
Nic Wilkinson is a responsible, organized, disciplined rugby player at the top of his game. Emma Martens is a sometimes-scattered, often-emotional, and always-broke would-be designer with a big chip on her shoulder where Nic’s concerned.
They have no history together, except one perfect week. Nothing in common anymore, except the most important thing of all.
Getting together again would be messy. Complicated. Scary. And, just maybe, worth every risk.
i have to admit that Rosalind James is an author that I am glad to have discovered. I love reading romance novels, but over the last year or so, I found been finding that more and more of my favorites are just letting me down – so when I find someone new to read, I jump on the opportunity. A couple of months ago, I read the first book in the Escape to New Zealand series and quickly followed it up by reading the other two available ones over the next week…yeah, what I can say. So when I saw Just for Fun listed as a blog tour, I was excited.
I will however, be the first to admit, that the secret baby trope isn’t a favorite of mine in the romance genre, because most of the time, it revolves around the guy being a douchnozzle (since I can’t swear on amazon, this is a word that was devised by a fellow forum member). However, in this instance, I think that Ms James did a good job of walking the fine line between sappy/feel-good and crappy, jerkish hero – for the most part of loved Nic, but he for sure had a bit of an ego 😉
I enjoyed how she managed to bring characters from the previous three books in the series and integrate the various cameos – it is always good to take a peek into the future and see what the people from other books you have enjoyed are doing now. I can only hope that Ms. James will put me out of my misery and either write another book in the series, or start something new. I know that she was will going on my authors to stalk for more books shelf on Goodreads (yes, that is a good thing…it is also known as my auto-buy shelf).
