I was in a pretty big reading slump before starting this book and I was pleasantly surprised to find myself coming out of that slump after reading this book. Although I enjoyed the first book in the series, I expressed by slight disappointment because I felt like the book was more of a Contemporary Romance rather than a true Women’s Fiction novel. However, I definitely feel like Lori Foster has stepped up to that and created a story that is more fitting to the genre.
In this book, we have two characters, Joy and Maris who find something that they never expected to. Both are at different points in their lives, but are feeling as if something isn’t right. As they encourage each other to step out of their comfort zones, they both discover something about themselves.
I really enjoyed this friendship and this was the kind of thing that I was looking for in this novel. While the romance is also a major part of the book, I really prefer there to be a focus on something else other than the romance when you are writing a Women’s Fiction novel. This distinction is really what makes it different from Contemporary Romance, which I felt the first book focused on the most. So I’m curious to see if Foster will continue this style and if so, I will definitely be looking forward to reading it.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
