“I really felt like Shalvis hit all the right notes. The book was fun and energetic while still having those emotional parts as well. ”
~ Under the Covers

In the second book in the Wildstone series, this time we have a heroine who suffers from panic and anxiety. As a person who suffers from the same, I found this incredibly fun to read about. I thought that Jill Shalvis did a really good job of exploring the issue and making light of it in some instances. Overall, I thought she did a good job with it. My only complaint about this is that the anxiety only really occurs when Lanie is alone. When she is with her friends or Mark, we don’t really see it manifest as much. So that was the only big inconsistency that I found in this book.

While marketed as a Women’s Fiction novel, I really do think that this book holds a lot of Romance elements as well. For example, the main hero, Mark, has all the characteristics of a Romantic hero. He even has two adorable daughters that help in making him more desirable. So really, I think if you’re a fan of Romance and Jill Shalvis in general, you definitely won’t have any issue falling in love with this book.

My favorite part of this book has to be the humor and banter. I really felt like Shalvis hit all the right notes. The book was fun and energetic while still having those emotional parts as well. So I’m glad to have picked this book up and I look forward to reading the next one.
