I’ve been a reading maniac lately since I’m fumbling with my own book right now in the revision stage. Thankfully, most of the books I’ve received in the last couple months have been incredible and I’ve gobbled them up like a hot fudge brownie sundae. I LOVE when that happens.
Today’s book spotlight is Always Will by Melanie Jacobson. Here’s the ooey gooey sweet blurb:
Handsome twenty-eight-year-old Will Hallerman has fi nally had enough of the dating world he s ready to find a wife and settle down. This announcement is catastrophic in Hannah Becker s world. After knowing Will her entire life and adoring him from afar since junior high school, she realizes her chance at love with him is in grave danger. Hannah s problem? To Will, she will never be more than his best friend’s little sister. Determined to open his eyes to her charms, Hannah sets out to sabotage Will s wife hunt by placing nightmare dates in his path and taking his search on a wild goose chase. Her plan is risky, but she s willing to take a chance to catch the eye of her soul mate.
Despite her crazy schemes, nothing seems to be working. Hannah can t help but wonder if it s time to set aside this childhood crush to move on and settle down herself. She s ready for a fresh start with a great guy. If only Will weren t suddenly changing the rules of the game . . . And how can Hannah move on when Will just won t let her forget?
This contemporary romantic comedy thrilled me. The characters are spectacular. Hannah is witty, intelligent, strong, but flawed. Will is brilliant and wonderful too, except he’s dense as concrete when it comes to love. The dialogue and friendship between these two kept me smiling and laughing the whole way through. The side characters like Sophia were great too and added lots of laughs through their conversations. I couldn’t put this book down. I started it one night and finished it the next day and couldn’t stop thinking about the characters. The scenario of the heroine being in love with her brother’s best friend for 12 years was crazy, and Will seemed a bit clueless not to have acted on that before the book starts. But crazy scenarios make awesome books. I loved seeing what Hannah was willing to do to sabotage his efforts to find a wife.
