Dreaming of You (Magnolia Valley, #1) ♥ Review

Dreaming of You (Magnolia Valley, #1) 


BOOK DESCRIPTION: Josie Wheeler isn’t a risk-taker. She likes her routine running the Morning Jolt cafe. The last risk she took was asking her dreamy friend Calvin out—and that failed miserably. But as her thirtieth birthday gets closer, that routine starts to feel like stagnation.

After his marriage went up in flames, Calvin Monroe knew love wasn’t for him. Since then, every relationship he’s had has been no-strings-attached. But Calvin’s not nearly as commitment-phobic as Josie thinks he is; he just can’t find anyone that measures up to her.

Josie is vibrant, funny, smart—and Calvin’s wanted her since they first met. But he knows he’s not her type. Josie goes for wholesome guys, not divorcees with bad reputations.

An overheard conversation changes everything. Calvin realizes Josie is—was—into him, but he was too dumb to see it. If he can convince her to take another risk on him, he’ll win her heart. So, he makes her an offer she can’t turn down: Two weeks to try out anything she wants in bed.

Josie knows Calvin doesn’t do forever, but she says yes to his proposition, anyway—it might be just what she needs to get him out of her system and her life out of its rut.

What Josie doesn’t expect is their exhilarating chemistry setting the sheets aflame and entangling her wary heart. But when her cafe is threatened, she has to decide what she’s willing to risk for a love beyond her wildest dreams.

Review:  ♥ ♥

Josie is turning 30 soon and every year she likes to do something that she wouldn't usually. Her best friend is getting married and her boyfriend is becoming a little too routine. Turning 30 doesn't mean you have to settle and Josie wants to spice it up a little. She suggests something a little naughty in the bedroom and Nate quickly becomes her ex. She's embarrassed and wants to take some time out from dating before jumping back in.

Calvin is her best friend. Josie thinks he friend zoned her a year ago. He doesn't date local women after his divorce. Magnolia Valley is just too small and Calvin got burnt after his failed marriage. He still has a good relationship with his ex-wife, Abigail but the town people weren't as forgiving. He gained the reputation of not being husband material.

One night with friends Calvin learns a couple of truths. First you shouldn't listen in on others conversations and secondly, he had missed a chance to date, Josie. Now he can't get her off his mind.

This is a friend to lovers romance. It's well written and full of sexy scenes. It's a standalone story. The first in a new series. It is a good book and I look forward to the next instalment. This is a Hidden Gem.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. 4.5 stars out of 5.
