Mary Calmes has checked off all the boxes with Jere and Cam. Love at first sight stories are hard to like these days, mainly because it's unrealistic and never offers anything beyond it. Happy to say, Mary has made alot of effort for us to take interest in her 2 characters. It's alot more than, 'I see you, you see me and let's go chase the sunset' There are alot of side characters, which is a Mary Calmes staple. She gets lost in her world building and we're all happy for it. There are alot of conversations with these characters that just enrich the story and makes it more. You will find yourself trying to keep up with their lives. What helps is that Jere and Cam know that it's a ridiculous notion they're feeling. So as they try to navigate this instant attraction, they raise questions we're nodding our heads at. The answers they reach are wonderful and inspiring and totally satisfying. I have to say this here. Another Mary calmes staple is: righteous, reasonable and everything nice in a person, MC. She wants to see genuinely good people in the world and she writes them in her stories. Despite the hardships they face, they always try to do the right thing, and it's such a quality that you know the writer must have it too. And for me that's really admirable. A very wholesome book. Some of the side characters could be left out as their fate sort of went nowhere, but I guess it wouldn't be a Mary Calmes romance without the whirlwind.
I enjoyed this book. Specially because I read it immediately after a book that was so very sad that I had to skip the whole middle section and read the last few chapters. This book was a lovely palate cleanser after that. I love the characters, and I'm so glad they found their miracle.
A fab romance that unfolds before your eyes as clearly as a movie. Beautifully written with authentic dialogue, so you immediately connect with the two male characters and care about what happens to them. Interesting plot too.
This was just one long, beautiful, developing relationship between Cameron and Jeremiah. It was all about them - as a couple and as themselves - no major angst, a few bumps in each of their backstories but overall a charming read that left my heart smiling.
I thought that in her last books Mary was losing a bit of what make her one of my fab authors. This one is back to what I love most from her writing style. If you like books where you end up with an smile and a awwww... This is it.
