“HANGING BY A THREAD is the third in the Riley O’Brien series and it’s definitely a sweet one.”
~ Under the Covers

HANGING BY A THREAD is the third in the Riley O’Brien series and it’s definitely a sweet one.  I have a love for series that revolve around family and this one is endearing.  I don’t know why I didn’t realize where this pairing was coming from, but I was surprised when I started to realize this was an interracial romance (obviously I don’t read blurbs or look closely at covers once I’m following a series).

So Cal and Bebe have all had a hate relationship, on the outside.  They’re actually both really attracted to each other but they thought they didn’t stand a chance so they opted for being contrary with each other every time they could.  Until Cal overhears Bebe talking to his sister (her best friend) about her plan to loose her virginity.  Cal immediately steps up to the plate and offers his help.

Once Cal and Bebe let the other in, I thought they were a really cute couple.  Their interactions were fun and they fit well together.  All while still having the rest of the family involved and around, which I love.

There is the topic of the secret that Bebe is keeping from Cal the whole time, the fact that she’s been in an arranged marriage engagement since the time she was 20.  I think this was done well in terms of how she feels about the situation or deals with it, even though it was set up easy for her in my opinion with the backstory her family.  It wasn’t a decision she struggled with much.

Ultimately, this was an enjoyable read but one that maybe I didn’t quite connect with as much as I wanted.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

Thank you for reviewing, Francesca! Just a quick correction – Bebe was arranged when she was 20, not 12.
