Note: this novella has been previous published as New Year's Wedding.
Emily Parker has a secret. One that none of her friends or family could possibly guess. Not because she’s good at keeping secrets—she’s abysmal—but rather because it’s so far out of the realm of possibility that it’s incomprehensible. Good-natured Emily has had the hots for reclusive Justin Simons for fifteen years. Fifteen.
This wouldn’t have been such a bad thing, except that until a year ago, Justin had been engaged to another woman. Now he’s free, rocking the gorgeous bushman look, and she’s ready to make a play for his heart.
Justin doesn’t trust easily. Not since his fiancé ran off with his cousin two weeks before their wedding. But he can’t seem to stop lusting after Emily—him, and every other guy in their New Zealand hometown.
Then he’s invited to his ex’s romantic New Year’s Eve wedding. Because why not rub salt in the wound? Fortunately, Emily might just be available to go with him.
But what happens when one person falls and the other is scared to let go?
Unrequited love? That just might be about to change . That doesn't mean it's going to be a smooth ride for anybody.
Grumpy, gloomy Justin was kind of a loner before he got dumped. Now its worse because he couldn't bear to be the butt of all the gossip. Sure, he knew most people were rooting for him but this small community still liked it's gossip.
Sweet, sweet Emily. The whole town basically loved her. She is a very successful businesswoman. And the whole town would attest to the fact that she never had a mean word to say about anyone. She is not only sweet but evidently gorgeous. She attracted more than one man's eye but she ever so kindly didn't let any man get close. Oh they tried but the locals knew it wasn't going to happen.
I wouldn't say it's a really deep story. But it was a fun, quick story that was sweet but with a touch of heat as well. You can count on at least one misunderstanding before they get their H.E.A.
I really liked the eBook cover too.
