VBT review: In The Nick Of Time

Blurb: Divorced and done with her dry spell, Holly Prentice is ready to get back in the game. But with two conditions: her future mate can't be married to his career, and he has to have a couch. Nick Andreis loves his job, and his only furniture is a king-size bed. He's also single, sexy, and six years Holly's junior. Any guy this hunky and carefree can't be serious about the future.

After one spontaneous and explosive night, Holly decides that her search for Mr. Right can wait. Nick can be Mr. Right Now.

Nick has waited years for Holly. Now that she's dating again, he's determined to be the only man in her life. He wants what Holly wants: forever. Convincing her of that won't be easy, but Nick agrees - with fingers crossed behind his back - to Holly's idea that they can be bed buddies until someone serious comes along. His plan: use the time between their passionate nights to convince her that he is the one.
Will Holly's unexpected pregnancy change the rules of their games? Or can they both decide to play for keeps?

Review Rating: 4 LIGHTNING BOLTS

Review: Sometimes when you want something...or someone, you get a little more than you bargained for.

Nick has been interested in Holly for quite sometime. The time is now or never. There are definitely some obstacles between them, Holly is about six years older, and has different expectations and needs for life these days. He's young and the desire to settle down isn't quite there yet.

Then life throws a bit of a curve ball, and decisions will have to be made.

I enjoyed this story. The characters were well rounded and i could see both Holly and Nick's side of things. The way they react, their choices, everything, all led the pair to a great conclusion, although it took a whole lot of intense moments to get there.   I loved the complexity of the characters and situations and that they really had to look deep within themselves to find what they want and need.

Great job to the author on creating a well crafted story that I enjoyed!

Author bio:  

I write the kinds of books I love to read. The quirky characters in my romance novels experience angst, conflict, mostly great sex, and always get their "happily ever after." In my mainstream fiction, ordinary woman experience angst, conflict, and occasional great sex, but they also get embroiled in struggles against extraordinary odds, and I don't promise a happy ending. I also love thrillers, but I don't write those. I live in Los Angeles with my husband, son, and a whole lot of pets. When I'm not hanging out in Hollywood, I'm eating my way through Budapest.

She’d met Nick about five years ago, when he was fresh out of college and her ex was mentoring him at the network. She and Drew had sort of taken Nick under their wing. He’d been that young guy who’d come over for home cooked meals dozens of times. She’d seen movies with Nick and palled around with him while her ex husband had been working. None of that history could explain the sudden flutter in her heart. It wasn’t as if Nick were some attractive guy she’d just met for the first time at a party. He was just Nick, really. Nothing to get worked up about, she admonished herself.
Still, tonight, for reasons Holly couldn’t quite put her finger on, Nick took her breath away. Had he been this handsome and virile all these years? Had she been this lonely and shamelessly hard-up before?
Surreptitiously, she gave him a good once over. Life was obviously agreeing with him. He was all planes and angles, hard muscles, and beautiful hair. She’d always treated him like a little brother, but the feelings he inspired this evening were anything but fraternal.

  1. Thanks so much for hosting! Glad you enjoyed Nick & Holly's story.

  2. Thanks for the review and excerpt from In The Nick of Time - I definitely know where Holly's coming from as far as meeting someone again that you had originally only looked at in a platonic sort of way. This definitely sounds like a book I would enjoy reading
