Title: TANGLED LOVE ON PELICAN POINT
Author: Karice Bolton
Source: eBook from author for review
Sophie Bristol works two jobs—sometimes three—and is surrounded by people falling in love and that’s great. Really, it’s great. It’s not like she ever thought she’d find that perfect someone. After all, she learned he probably only exists in some far away land with talking wildlife and glass slippers, and that works perfectly for her busy schedule. Not to mention she experienced the worst divorce in island history between her parents, and she got to be there for every painful second to warp her view on the subject. And let’s not forget her stepmom has only learned to like Sophie once she began helping take care of her dad after his stroke.
So to say love isn’t a priority is an understatement. Life hasn’t been easy, not that she ever expected it to be, and she’s fine with the hand she’s been dealt.
Really, she is fine. But when Sophie falls for a rock star, it will take more than a fairy godmother to make love work in the real world.
Anthony Hill is the lead singer of the Crimson Strings and his band has hit it big. Really big. Huge, actually. And he should be thrilled. It’s what he’s always wanted. However, sometimes there is a big disconnect between dreams and reality. With his nonstop touring schedule and pressure to repeat success on his next album, he flees to the one place that scarred him the most, Fireweed Island. He hopes if he confronts the demons of his past, he’ll finally get to experience the happiness he so desperately craves, but he soon finds out coming back to the island might be the worst decision he’s ever made.
Until he meets her.
What Anthony wants, no—needs— is simple. He needs Sophie Bristol to fall in love with him. What he gets is a tangled mess involving two very complicated people, who refuse to see what is right in front of them. He realizes the fantasy of love he’s conjured up over the years will take more than finding the one because he has apparently found the “one” who has no interest in love or dating. He knows the only way he has a chance with Sophie is to get her to trust him, but given his current profession that won’t be easy.
Have I ever mentioned how much I love this series? I need to live on this island and become BFF's with all these amazing characters. Because seriously. They. Are. Amazing. And I have probably mentioned before that whichever book I am reading, that guy is my favorite of favorites by Bolton. And Anthony is that leading man right now. I absolutely adore him. He is a rock star for goodness sake.
I really enjoyed Sophie’s story and her struggles are real. Real, every day struggles that so many of us are facing: debt, caring for our loved ones, and working more than one job. She is such a relatable character. One many readers will love and will love seeing her get her happily ever after. Yep, you can always count on Bolton to give us the happy in the end. And the romance. And the feels. She does it all!!
And once again the secondary characters play a huge role in this story. I loved Nick even more and cannot wait to read his book. It is coming soon!! I know for sure I have said it before but it’s always fun to see all the past characters show up from time to time in each of the books. A wonderful treat to those of us who have been following (and loving) this series. I felt like if you were just coming into the series, you could get away with reading this one first. To a certain degree. However, I think it would be best to start at the beginning and allow yourself to grow a relationship with the characters before they tell their own story. It just makes sense, right?
I am about to start the next book in the series and cannot wait to get to know who Jewels really is and how her story will play out. Way to go Bolton on giving us readers another fabulous read that had me smitten from start to end. 5 Rocked My Socks Right Off Stars!
