For anyone looking for a sweet, mostly clean, emotional read, Why Now? is it.
It’s kind of like a second-chance romance, but what is it called when you never had a chance in the first place?
It’s not the raunchy, over the top, tough-talking anti-hero swooping in to save the heroine kind of romance. This is a romance for everyday people and a love-story that anyone will enjoy.
Romances are fantasy, something I’ve said before. And I love losing myself in a fantasy – the hot, rough and tumble MC anti-hero; the hot, rough and tumble alpha-male Spec Ops hero – guys most of us will never encounter and never fall in love with (not counting all the book boyfriends we collect).
Carey writes about ‘normal’ people – the guy next door, the girl who blossomed after high school, people who have everyday jobs, everyday lives, and everyday problems. She writes about most of us. And in doing so she gives us normal folk hope. The hope that everyday people can find happily-ever-after in their everyday lives. She still gives us angst and drama and conflict, she just does it in a way we can really relate to.
I loved him.
For over twenty years.
And everyone knew, including him.
But he never loved me back.
So I moved on.
Now he’s back, and wants to make me his.
He’s everything I’ve ever wanted.
I should be happy.
But there’s one problem.
