Serendipity - Book Tour

The saying goes that there is a fine line between love and hate...but what happens when the line becomes blurred? 

When life hands Phoebe Andrews her dream job, she’s ecstatic. That is, until she realizes that in order to pursue her dream she’ll have to give up her cosmopolitan lifestyle in Chicago and move to Nashville. As if leaving all she knows behind wasn’t enough, a car accident on her first day in town does nothing to convince the city girl that country living is all it’s cracked up to be.

As an only child, Dean Montgomery has obligations—obligations which have left him angry at the world. Just as his monotone life has begun to leave him jaded, he is brought back to earth with a bang...literally. 

Fate conspires to bring the city girl and the country boy together, but can Dean stay out of trouble long enough for the pair to test the boundaries of their tempestuous relationship?

Review : 

You know me, I am a sucker for a pretty cover - Am I vain when it comes to images? I hate to say it but yes, if someone has taken the time to have a good cover to accompany their book then it shows they are dedicated. 

If you are looking for a quick light summer read, that doesn't require much concentration then this is the book for you, there are already a few similar books out there so if you are a fan of those it would be worth giving this one a shot. 

As much as I wanted to love the characters there was just something about then that I found annoying in parts and that never really went away. Phoebe isn't likeable all of the time, in fact there are moments when she is damn near infuriating.  

As I have mentioned this is a very quick read, not unpleasant but I wish in parts there where more to it - Think of it as a cookie without the chocolate chunks, you don't need the chocolate but that is what makes you love it.

I did enjoy parts of the book but I wan't left feel satisfied, for that reason I would say this is an in between books read.

3.5/5 stars.
