Turnaround: A Red Hot Valentine Story
*Submitted for review by author*
Genre: Valentines/Romance/ Short
Becca and James don't date. Both are in their thirties and neither has found anyone they feel is potential spouse material. Becca attends a "We Hate Valentine's Day" party at a local bar where James is bartending. He knows from the first day they meet that Becca is someone special, but Becca's more cautious. James sets out to prove to Becca there really are happy-ever-afters.
Definitely one of the better Valentines themed reads out there. I don’t tend to like “holiday” themed reads as I can find them to be quite cheesy and all the same but I quite enjoyed this one. Though it was only a short read you get plenty of story and information so you don’t feel like anything has been left out and it didn’t feel rushed at all.
I liked how James and Becca didn’t jump into bed together from the first meeting, but took things slow and enjoyed just being in each other’s company. Becca and James’s dorky-ness was probably what I loved the most about the characters, it was adorable and endearing. Cassandra Carr always manages to write interesting, enthralling characters that suck you in and make you wish for their happiness right until the end.
This is an ideal read for those who like romance with a bit of spice that isn’t over the top. I’d give this read four stars.
