A charming and sweet romance!
Felicity Hart and Jared Redmond are from different worlds and at different point in their lives. Felicity is an Art History Grad student with dreams of being an art curator in a well known gallery/museum. Jared is a workaholic attorney working on the partnership path.
But one night he finds a princess in his bed and it all changes for the both of them. They have great chemistry and find a comfortable ease with the other person that allows them to release and be themselves where they aren’t able to otherwise. Felicity helps Jared enjoy a slower pace in life. He love of art opens him up to new things and teaches him to enjoy those things he would have normally ignored. For Felicity, having him in her life gives her a boost in confidence. Being young and having spent her every available moment studying and working, the nerd in her finds a new zest for life when she realizes that sexy Jared has his eye on her.
Aside from building a fast and easy friendship, they find that their attraction is something that is propelling them in to uncharted territory. Jared has never had to juggle work with a personal life and Felicity’s young and fragile confidence has trouble accepting their budding relationship.
I found it a bit hard to connect with the characters on a level beyond surface appreciation for their story, but it was an enjoyable romance. It follows a similar format as many contemporary romances, but was a good story to enjoy when dealing with a book hangover or looking for a quick read. I’ve been a fan of Lauren Smith’s other works and this one was much “softer” than the others I’ve read. It was different but was just well written as the others.
