You know how sometimes you sign up for a free month of Kindle Unlimited and you just type “hockey romance” in the search box and you just, you know, take a chance on anything that pops up? Well. Sometimes that goes really poorly for you.
Room For You by Beth Ehemann
Kacie Jensen has one main priority in her life: raising her twin daughters, Lucy and Piper. Ever since her ex—the girls’ father—vanished four years ago, Kacie’s sworn to keep her head in her studies and her heart out of trouble. Moving back home to her mother’s bed-and-breakfast had seemed like the best way to start over.
But when hockey star Brody Murphy washes up on the front steps of the Cranberry Inn during a raging storm, he awakens a hunger in Kacie that she’s long forgotten…and he opens her eyes to a life she never thought was possible. With so much more to lose this time around, can Kacie trust her heart to make the right decision?
Room for You is the sweet, tantalizing first novel in bestselling author Beth Ehemann’s heartwarming Cranberry Inn series.
Things I liked:
Y’all I didn’t even make it past the second chapter.
I mean, it was written in a language I could read.
Things I couldn’t get behind:
I literally could not with how poorly it was written. All of the showing, none of the telling, people’s eyes had entire conversations, and NO ONE TALKS LIKE THIS. NO ONE. It was written in interchanging first person again, but unlike Breakaway, it just wasn’t engaging.
My taste in books is pretty varied, and I legitimately love terrible books, but I at least ask that my terrible books be somewhat readable. This one isn’t.
Seeing as I didn’t get past the second chapter (no, literally) I cannot in good conscience recommend this book.
Rating: No beards. Maybe that stage of beard somewhere between 5 o’clock shadow and an actual beard where it’s just kinda gross.
