Genre fiction lover: Romance, Sci Fi, Fantasy, Mystery, Urban Fantasy
I looked at this book on my kindle puzzled. The little dot thingies at the bottom were all dark, which means I had made it to the end of the book. But for the life of me I could not remember a single thing about this book.
I had to read the blurb and even then it took me a minute. And then I was like "oh, it was that book."
And even then it wasn't the hero/heroine that my mind immediately went to, it was the subplot with the hero's sister. See, the hero's sister had a one night stand hook up and got pregnant but had no contact info for the guy. The hero & heroine set out to find the guy because the sister is exhausted, overworked, could use some financial child support.
The H/h become amateur sleuths to track down the guy behind the sister's back. They don't want to get her hopes up if he's a total jerk. I actually liked the scenes where they come up with list of possibles and come up with a slick plan to pin down the guy. All the different guys were fun to 'meet.' And I really liked how the whole reveal and resolution played out. It was very satisfying.
"But, Tina," you say, 'What about the romance?"
To which I reply...."ummm...." It was not remarkable. They meet, the fight spiffily. They banter. They sex.
I have always liked this author mainly because she writes urban professionals who live in big cities and incorporates their work very well into the story. The heroine is a lawyer and I like it when she morphs into this barracuda lawyer. Books set in big cities with smart professionals is a sweet spot that is very, very rarely hit for me in contemporary romances and one that I love. So even though this book was somewhat unremarkable in some places, the writing was still bright and parts of it very much worked for me.
