This is a review for the “Booking for Love (romance)” Book Case! And here we have the two books included for this month with quote from each. 🙂
Is it just me or do the colors on the covers of these books complement each other nicely?
Summary from Goodreads: “Madelaine Hillyard is a world-famous heart surgeon at the top of her game. Her personal life is far less successful. A loving but overworked single mom, she is constantly at odds with her teenage daughter. At sixteen, Lina is confused, angry, and fast becoming a stranger to her mother—a rebel desperate to find the father who walked away before she was born.
Complicating matters for Madelaine are the vastly different DeMarco brothers: While priest Francis DeMarco is always ready to lend a helping hand, his brother, Angel, long ago took on the role of bad boy. Years earlier Angel abandoned Madelaine—and fatherhood—to go in search of fame and fortune. His departure left Madelaine devastated, but now he reappears and seeks help from the very people he betrayed—as a patient in dire need.
With Home Again, New York Times bestselling author Kristin Hannah has written a moving, powerful novel about the fragile threads that bind together our lives and the astonishing possibility of second chances.”
Ohhhh, this one sounds like a Korean drama… XD (I think that’s mostly due to the surgeon/patient/brothers factors hahaha). It’s got 3.95 stars from 14,399 ratings on Goodreads so this should be a pretty good read!
Summary from Goodreads: “Grey and Ben fell in love at thirteen and believed they’d be together forever. But three days before their wedding, the twenty-year-old groom-to-be suddenly died from an unknown heart condition, destroying his would-be-bride’s world. If it hadn’t been for their best friend, Jagger, Grey never would have made it through those last two years to graduation. He’s the only one who understands her pain, the only one who knows what it’s like to force yourself to keep moving when your dreams are shattered. Jagger swears he’ll always be there for her, but no one has ever been able to hold on to him. He’s not the kind of guy to settle down.
It’s true that no one has ever been able to keep Jagger—because he’s only ever belonged to Grey. While everyone else worries over Grey’s fragility, he’s the only one who sees her strength. Yet as much as he wants Grey, he knows her heart will always be with Ben. Still they can’t deny the heat that is growing between them—a passion that soon becomes too hot to handle. But admitting their feelings for each other means they’ve got to face the past. Is being together what Ben would have wanted . . . or a betrayal of his memory that will eventually destroy them both?”
A… partial love triangle? XD Haha, I’m almost afraid that this book will have one of those endings that leave you mad and frustrated… especially when you’re not sure if the two characters will ever get together after reading about them for 200 pages.
Overall enjoyment: Another two fun books to enjoy and add to my “to-read”list (which keeps growing longer every day…). After going through the non-spoilery reviews on Goodreads, I think both of these will be dramatic page-turners!
