UNEXPECTED AND UNDENIABLE . . .
Bailey Moore has an agenda: skiing in the Rockies, exploring castles in Europe, ballroom dancing in Argentina. Now that she has a second lease on life, she's determined not to miss a thing. What she doesn't realize is that item #1 comes with a six-foot-one ski god hot enough to melt a polar ice cap. She doesn't want to miss out on him either, but Hudson Kincaid isn't the type of guy to love and let go. And as gorgeous as Cedar Ridge is, she's not planning to stick around.
As head of ski patrol at his family's resort, Hud thinks he's seen it all. But never has he run into someone like Bailey. She might look delicate, but her attitude is all firecracker. And her infectious joy touches something deep within him that he's been missing far too long. Now he'll just have to convince Bailey to take a chance on her biggest adventure yet . . . something rare and all kinds of wonderful.
This book was everything I look for in a Jill Shalvis novel and more.
I was a bit skeptical going into "My Kind of Wonderful" as I struggled a bit with the first book in the Ribbon Ridge series. But all of my concerns were for naught. This book was everything I look for in a Jill Shalvis novel and more. Hudson is the epitome of an alpha hero, but he's sensitive and completely tuned in to Bailey from the moment he meets her. His emotions run deep, especially his guilt and it casts a shadow over everything he does. Until he meets Bailey.
Bailey is strong character and I love her spirit. One would think she'd have used up that strength fighting her battles over the past few years, but she has come out stronger and more determined that ever. That determination comes through immediately in her dealings with Hudson and his entire family. She's just the type of strong personality he needs. She stands up to him and challenges him in ways he didn't know he needed.
I love the family dynamic of Hudson with his siblings, and also his mother. Her suffering is awful, but her kids are wonderful with her and when she is "present", she's got a wonderful free spirit about her. And I just have to say that the running family joke among the siblings was really quite hilarious and presented itself at just the right time in this story.
And not specifically related to "My Kind of Wonderful", I especially enjoyed the teaser for the next book in the series in the back. That's one book I've already one-clicked!
Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
My Kind of Wonderful
Great book. Love the family dynamic and humor that is a large part of the book. Hero is tall, dark, gorgeous, sweet and gentle. Heroine is sweet and gentle with a feisty side that is brought out by the hero. The chemistry between the two is evident at their first meeting and their passion grows stronger throughout the book. Good mix of humor while also dealing with serious topics. Love the descriptive writing and passionate love scenes.
Perfect Winter Read
Perfect story for a winter's day!!
Loved curling up and enjoying another Jill Shalvis book.
My Mom gave me my first book from this author, and she is now one that I look for regularly.
My Kind of Wonderful is book two from The Cedar Ridge Series.
(BTW, if you haven't read book one yet in the Cedar Ridge Series, you don't have to worry! This one can be read as a Stand Alone story!)
I always love the way this author goes about her storytelling, and this book is no different.
The characters in this story had great chemistry, and I really loved Bailey!
She was spunky, and overcoming cancer has made her want to experience life in a new way.
When she meets Hud, the chemistry is instant!
It's really great when as a reader, you could feel the spark ignite when they were together on the pages.
There is so much to love about this book, story of overcoming, story of family, and story of falling in love!
This is definitely a story romance lovers will want to check out, and SOON!
