Sadie McAllister is fastidious to a fault-but that serves her well as a personal chef to her clients in Denver. But her earliest attempt at managing romance was a bust when Erik Davis declined her invitation to the school’s eighth grade Sadie Hawkins Dance.
Having celebrated the big 3-0 by ending a relationship, Sadie is tired of romantic relationships-by-text. The only man she knows willing to put down his iPhone and have face-to-face conversations with her is Erik. It’s time to put a 21st-century twist on the Sadie Hawkins’ tradition of a woman going after her man. He may not be the hero of her romantic dreams, but she can propose to Erik and achieve some sort of happily ever after with her best friend.
Erik is good at two things: his freelance job and maintaining casual, no-one-gets-hurt relationships with women. What is Sadie thinking, proposing to him? This is marriage-not a middle school dance. Erik decides to show Sadie what romance looks like when the man takes the lead. And while he’s at it, he’ll prove just how wrong they are for each other. But when he realizes he’s fallen for her, can Erik convince Sadie his just-for-fun dates were the prelude to “’til death do us part”?
This was another great romance. I enjoyed this book and the slow, yet quick, love story that bloomed 🙂
I love all the elements that Beth worked into this quick read. Both characters had things in their lives to overcome and misunderstandings with each other to work through.
After being friends for so long you know a lot about a person and Sadie definitely had trouble believing Erik could really care for her for too long. But Erick sets out to prove her wrong. Will it be too late? Will she leave everything behind to start a new life far from Erik?
You’ll just have to give this a read to find out.
