Julianne Bartlett and Will Hanes, best friends of twenty years and partners in their law firm, refuse to admit what everyone else in their lives sees, they are perfect for each other. Julianne is known in their circle for her short-term romances, and Will is known for being her companion, and romancing women who are startling similar to Julianne. Julianne is searching for her fairy tale Prince Charming, but refuses to acknowledge that her Prince Charming could be right in front of her. Will the timing ever be right to change these law partners into life partners?
This is a pleasant, quick reading book. It is nice to read a romantic book that is clean and fun to read. Julianne and Will are enjoyable characters, and their circle of friends offer some humorous exchanges. There is some drama involved in the plot, but overall this is a light, romantic comedy type of book. I liked this book. The characters are fun, the plot is clean, and the message of waiting for Prince Charming is a good one. If I had any criticism, it would be that the book is almost too predictable. However, romantic comedies are not generally known for their surprising plot twists, so I was not expecting a lot of suspense or twists. Overall, the story was believable and pleasant.
If you are looking for an easy reading book that would be perfect for a day at the beach, this would be an excellent choice. If you enjoy romantic comedies, you will probably enjoy this book. It is definitely worth a read, and I will probably read it again.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Moody Publishers in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
