Synopsis:

~~ Sexy, emotional, often funny, always messy, true love romance ~~

Jenn Lesley isn’t finding the man of her dreams, so a friends-with-benefits situation suits her just fine in the meantime. She’s a smart woman—a lawyer—with her feet solidly on the ground. She’s pretty sure she knows what she needs, and Walker isn’t it.

Walker Booth knows that he and Jenn have simply hooked up, not fallen in love or anything like that. He’s committed to chasing his dream, and he’s carved out a great, if unconventional, life for himself. So why do his paintings all start to have Jenn’s face?

When fate throws them a curve, Jenn may be too busy trying to right the trouble of her past to see that Walker is full of surprises.

Follow Jenn, Bree, Zoe and Jessica as they navigate the glitz and shine of Hollywood. Can be read as a standalone. This series has real emotion, hard won happy endings, and smoking hot romance.

 

Review:

A romance with a bit of a difference when you get to this one as it has two people who at first had no intention of making anything of what they had. A friends-with-benefits thing was all they wanted but that’s about to change when a certain test result comes back positive.

Jenn is clearly one of those people who loved to jump to conclusions right from get go with whomever she’s meeting. She had her mind set with how she thought things would go or how certain people should act and a good 9 times out of 10 she was wrong. Seems the dream guy and life she thought she wanted was nothing more than a fantasy. Reality turned out to be a whole lot better. A few times how she acts and thinks annoyed me but you have to go through those parts to get through to the real her. The one Walker is slowly helping her find.

Loved Walker from the start with his calmer carefree outlook on life. He is always trying to look out for Jenn even when she insists she doesn’t need him to. There’s more to him than meets the eye, which I liked. It just takes Jenn a while longer to see it but you know she will get there in the end. Seems she gets under his skin more than he would like to begin with and soon turns into a muse for his work. One he hopes to turn into reality though is yet to be seen. Loved his neighbours thought they were a good example of what real life looked like. A life Jenn soon starts to crave.

Thought her ‘friend’ Lissa was a right selfish bitch that definitely owed Jenn an apology for the ice queen she turned into. Melt the bitch I say. The friend she thought she had turned out to be one she’s better off without and the others she thought of as more acquaintances turned into the true friends she really needed.

Clark ‘dream guy’ was a tool of epic proportions and you really hope karma comes back to teach him a lesson. Lissa too really with how she acts. He was such a plank and how he acts after his major faux par is just laughable. Hello stalker in training, he’s getting close to it. Let’s just say when you are looking for ‘wife’ material it shouldn’t just be a job role to fill. Having your cake and eating will not just fly with our Jenn.

The dream man you think you are looking for can turn into a nightmare and that’s when the real thing sneaks up on you. The things Jenn might have put on her perfect partner list soon become obsolete. She gets what and whom she really wants when she starts looking with her heart not her lawyer business mind. Jenn may not have looked in Walkers direction for her future but it seems fate had other plans. She soon becomes the painting he longs her to be and he turns into the man of her wildest dreams.

Side note: A few times I spotted a name swap where Clark was used and it should have been Walker but nothing else that major.

4 out of 5 stars

I received this ARC from Griffyn Ink Publishing for my honest review.
