For those familiar with Julie Lessman, you know what to expect – lots of drama, lots of passion and always redemption. Her series create families, who by the end, you think are real (and often wish they were). She’s such a fun voice in the romance world!
Shy and unattractive as a child, Megan McClare has always been teased by her classmates. But when she returns home from her senior year in Paris, the wallflower has suddenly blossomed into a beauty. With ambitions to become a lawyer or doctor, Megan accepts an internship at the district attorney’s office only to discover that she will be working with Devin Caldwell, a boy who mercilessly mocked her at school–and with whom she was hopelessly enamored. She turns to her dear friend Bram Hughes for support and advice. But Bram’s vision is clouded by his sudden unwelcome attraction to a girl he had always thought of as a kid sister. He advises forgiveness, but can he forgive himself for pushing the woman he loves into the arms of another man?
Fan favorite Julie Lessman draws a romantic triangle that will have readers in a tizzy in this glittering Gilded Age tale of transforming love.
Trust me, Julie knows drama! In every book, I find myself saying “Guurrlll…” at least three times, followed by “Come on bro!” But that’s part of the charms of her stories, you’ll be frustrated at characters but by the finish, you’re happy. While this one did have more of a neatly wrapped up story than her previous ones I’ve read, I still had fun and appreciate how Lessman is able to weave in faith and that everyone’s story is different and that the struggles of some people are far different from others.
Have you had a chance to read any of Lessman’s books? If so, what’s your favorite? I have to say mine is still A Passion Most Pure 🙂
