Wingmen Series by Daisy Prescott
I did not read book 1, so this book can be read as a standalone, as I did. But, like all series, it’s probably more enjoyable if you read them in order.
Overall Rating: 3.5 (sXe)
Quick & Dirty summary: Tom Donnelly doesn’t mind his tom cat reputation. He may live on an island, but most of the women he sleeps with know that he’s not the dating, and certainly not the marrying kind. So when his sister’s best friend returns home and propositions him for a one night stand, he doesn’t mind obliging her, even if it goes against his admittedly loose morals. Hailey King has known Tom for most of her life, and although she’s a few years younger, she’s heard the rumors. Hailey knows Tom’s position on love and relationships, and she isn’t about to let anyone play her the fool.
This is a quick-paced love story that follows a somewhat typical storyline for “reluctant romance.” I had never heard of that term until someone else used it in an author group I follow on Facebook. It makes sense because there are so so many of these kinds of romance novels. Guy doesn’t believe in love until one day, the right woman comes along and it isn’t until he almost looses her that he realizes how much he loves her. I don’t think I’m giving anything away by writing that because Daisy Prescott puts her on spin on it.
Tom does have a few emotional depths that are challenged in the novel, and Hailey faces her own trials that reveal her character. There are some funny parts, although that’s not the first word that comes to mind when I think of this book. Instead, I think of it as an easy read that does it’s job of taking you away from the cares of your life.
Is it worth buying? (Kindle $4.98)
To me, 5 bucks is a lot of money for an ebook, so I’d say borrow it from the library or from a friend. I think I won this copy on a Facebook giveaway, which I’ve discussed in a previous post. You can read about Facebook “parties” here. But it’s definitely worth a read if you can get your hands on a copy.
