Summary: Ruby has been in love with Ford since their university days, but she
hasn't seen her former best friend in years--not since the one
unforgettable kiss they shared right before he went off globe-trotting
and she stayed behind. When he returns to town unexpectedly for their
friends' New Year's Eve wedding, the sparks between them ignite, but can
her wanderer ever settle down?
Ford has never forgotten Ruby,
or the kiss that changed everything between them, despite the many
women he has tried to erase her with. His return to England for the
wedding means a second chance with Ruby--but will one passion-filled
evening with her be enough, or has he finally found his home?
Review: What a sweet, spicy little treat just in time for the holidays!
of the things I love about reading is that it comes in all forms. Long
tomes, series, poems, sassy books, plays... There's something for every
mood, and sometimes you just have that desire to curl up in a chair with
something sweet and sexy, especially when the holidays roll around.
is definitely the latter, and I quite enjoyed it. It's exactly what it
says it is: a fun little holiday story. Ruby and Ford have been best
friends for years - or they were, until they kissed the night before he
was to leave to travel, changing things forever between them. Neither of
them have ever really been able to forget each other, but will their
differences keep them apart?
Incorporating Ruby's plans for her
friend's wedding, Wanderlust has heart and suits the holiday spirit, no
matter if you are religious or not. I mean, who can turn down a snowed
in hotel and tension that sizzles? The romance and sex in this book is
sweet and easy, and well done for a story that's introducing a couple
with an already established relationship between them. You never doubt
the intimacy between them!
The one thing that might be said to be missing in the story is a bit more depth, but considering the length and what it's designed to do I am willing to excuse that.
Definitely a good choice for a night
curled up with a cup of hot chocolate or when you're snuggled in bed and
want something to read :)
Disclosure: I received an ARC of this book through Netgalley in return for an honest review.
