Posey Osterhagen’s life was about to change when the boy she had loved at sixteen came back to her home town. She will find herself falling once again for him but know that in the end he would break her heart.
Liam Murphy was moving back to be closer to his daughters grandparents. His main focus was to his daughter and to create a life for them in this town. He will be surprised when he finds himself being drawn towards Posey.
Until There Was You is a novel by Kristan Higgins. I absolutely loved this book. I think I can read pretty much anything from this author and love her work. Higgins is a storyteller that will have you believing these characters are real. There will be that happy ending you thrive for but it is a struggle to get there, though no matter what it is heartwarming.
Alright now the character of Posey was sweet and naive. I felt that she had no backbone at times but she does get stronger when she is forced to confront certain facts. Her time in high school reminded me of some days in my own high school where you just felt invisible. Her story is heartbreaking and you really hope that she can get that love she had been searching for. Then there is Liam. I liked this reformed bad boy but he makes some mistakes when it comes to knowing what he wants. There was a part of me that didn’t like him for his part in Posey’s unhappiness at prom. Well there is a little twist towards the end that will have you back to liking Liam completely. Now with Liam as a dad I loved him. He was the way overprotective father who was in over his head but you couldn’t hate him for that.
Now Posey’s family is interesting. You kinda of resent the parents for not really listening to Posey when Gretchen is around, who was another character I wasn’t a big fan of. I like that Higgins gives the family a chance with a heart to heart towards the end. It made me like the mother and father a lot more.
Harper Summerville is at the town Razor Bay for one purpose which was to examine the charity that is asking for grant money. As she was the one who ran the foundation that her father started it was her job to investigate if they were a credible organization. Harper will find herself being pulled into this town, making new friends and having things heat up with a certain Deputy.
Deputy Max Bradshaw does his job well but at times he feels he is being pulled in all different directions. He will find himself being pulled once again when he will be attracted to a new girl in town, Harper.
Some Like It Hot is the second book to the series Razor Bay/Bradshaw Brothers from Susan Andersen. I have read the first book which I did like. The second book follows the same pattern with some heartwarming scenes along with plenty of steamy scenes as the main characters get together. I will admit it took me some time to get into the book but that was more than likely because I had to keep putting the book down, so my attention was drifting. As I moved halfway through the book I was able to sit down and just read leaving me to enjoy the rest of the book.
Harper’s character was caring but at first she was a little cold as she was just doing her job. It was when she started to really volunteer you saw that she cared for those kids. Max was good man and good cop. He did right by things and helped out when he could especially with kids who were not privileged. I liked that he was taking a chance finally with Harper but you knew that by her not telling them all that was going on there would be an argument coming her way. Personally I didn’t think it was such a big thing to get all angry about. She wasn’t exactly lying to anyone, just not admitting the whole truth.
Andersen has written the next book with Luc and Tasha which I will hopefully getting soon. It sounded like at the end they had a connection of some sort so I am sure we will find out in this next book which should be the last book. That is unless there is another half brother out there yet to be discovered.
