“It’s okay to live, she reminded herself. Okay to be happy and excited.
And there was no doubt she was both, she thought, still staring at him.”
Set in the amazingly beautiful & snowy background of Cedar Ridge.....MY KIND OF WONDERFUL is the perfect book for a cold winter night. Funny, sexy, moving - just adorable!! Grab a mug of hot chocolate and fall in love with Hud and Bailey!
Guys! I cannot believe that as a lover of romances that it took me this long to pick up a Jill Shalvis book. No, really, I am quite embarrassed. Once I read My Kind of Wonderful, which of course I was unable to put down, I have crowned Jill my new Queen of Romance.
Jill's writing in romance is exactly what I crave. I love the humor, I love the banter and I absolutely adore the quirky characters that dig their way into your heart.
Bailey and Hudson were the main characters of this book, though the rest of the Kincaid clan pops up in the book - with the exception of Jacob. Hudson was wonderful, even if he does come with a bit of baggage. He feels terrible about what happened between him and his brother Jacob and feels completely and utterly responsible for his mother and her state of mind. Between taking care of his mother, worrying about the whereabouts of his twin brother and taking care of the resort - Hud has no space for anyone in his heart.
Bailey was fantastic. She is a cancer survivor who has a list of things she wants to do in life, especially since she is now free of cancer. She is hired to paint a mural for the Kincaids at the resort, where she runs into Hud. The attraction between the two is crackling, and no sooner do they start a small fling, that quickly develops into something more, a lot more than either of them are willing to admit.
This book was quite a ride. The interaction between the Kincaid clan alone just made the entire journey worthwhile. The way they pick on each other is both endearing and amusing. There is a lot of love there, even if for the most part they are all step-brother's and sisters. The Kincaids significant others fit into the series perfectly. The book made me laugh, it brought joy into my heart and had me completely hooked. I am now looking forward to more from Jill and I will be reading the books that I have missed out on.This review was originally posted on Night Owl Book Cafe
“He flashed that panty-melting grin and all her poor, neglected womanly parts flamed to life and did the Macarena.”
“You make me feel things.”
“Like irritated? Annoyed?”
“Yes… But Also warm. And… Fuzzy.”
“Warm and fuzzy..? I’m not a pair of slippers Bailey.”
“It’s my turn for a question now.”
“Aren’t you afraid that might express persona interest?”
His smile was a little naughty. “I’ve had my tongue down your throat. I’m pretty sure I’ve already expressed personal interest.”
“We’re all gunning for you to trip over your two left feet for a woman. It’s your turn.”
