Review: Wanderlust by Kitty French

Title: Wanderlust
Author: Kitty French
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Publication Date: November 5th, 2013
Genre: Romance
Rating: Four out of Five Stars

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!

One 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.

Wanderlust 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.
