Review: For those of you that follow me, you will know romance novels are not something I read on a regular basis. However, I was looking for something light to read and had been hearing a lot of good things about this one. This was exactly what I was needing and it really hit the spot.
The central characters are Gavin and Thea. After a pivotal event, Thea asks Gavin for a divorce, unfortunately Gavin does not want one. Gavin is a professional baseball player, when some of his teammates approach him to attend their book club where the read romance novels, to keep keep that spark in their marriages. They offer to help Gavin woo Thea back.
What the author puts together is an inventive take on a romance story, you do not typically get this type of book from a male point of view. Let me be clear this is written by a woman, so that will only go so far, but I found it very “novel”.
Overall, this was a fun read, if you are looking for a fun light read, this should scratch that itch. This is going to be a series, and I will definitely read the next one.
