Reagan Murphy is having a late lunch at a downtown Indianapolis restaurant which just happens to be packed due to a comic con event. Jillian Jacobs walks in right behind Reagan and is offered the same table as Reagan by a different hostess. Reagan offers to share her table with Jillian. Reagan quickly regrets that offer when Jillian's behavior and manner turns out to be very rude. They both return to their daily lives, but meet again when Jillian and her mother hire the catering arm of Reagan restaurant group for her step-father's birthday celebration. From that point forward their attraction begins to grow.
This was a complex, multi-layered story with the relationship that developed between Reagan and Jill. It had several layers due to the reasons behind Jill's behavior that Reagan ultimately discovers, the terminal illness of Reagan's father, and the deep-seated hurt that threatens to tear apart Reagan and Jill's relationship. The writing was excellent, the characters were believable, and some of their actions were justified. 4.5 stars
I received an ARC from Bella Books and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
