I received a free review copy in exchange for an honest review. This has in no way swayed my opinion or affected the contents of this review.


Goodreads Synopsis:
Etta Davis didn't have showing a house penciled into her Christmas plans, but with the other realtors already off enjoying their holiday, she'd been stuck with the task. It wasn't all bad though, the house up for grabs used to belong to the family of her high school sweetheart, Andrew Lawson. Though now dilapidated, thanks to its current owners, it still held the power to bring back forgotten memories and turn the routine showing into something else entirely. Particularly when Andrew shows up, wanting to buy the house. Now Etta must decide whether a second chance is worth taking the house, and her heart, off the market.

What I thought:
This is just too exaggerated and over the top and I couldn't finish it.

It started out sweet even though it was a little bit to much, but I could over look that. Then it just continued and got worse by the page. The whole rekindling old love I can understand and appreciate. Calling out "I love you" less than an hour after they met and considering buying a house together in that very same hour, not so much.

The entire (as far as I got) novella sounds like a perfect fantasy that works in ones head but not on paper. It is just too perfect, too much and too exaggerated. There's really not much more to say about it.

My rating:

About the author:
Magan Vernon is a Young Adult and New Adult writer who lives with her family in the insurance capital of the world. She is in a very serious, fake relationship with Adam Lambert and constantly asks her husband to wear guyliner. He still refuses. She also believes her husband is secretly an alien, disguised as a southern gentleman.

Her first book was independently published through an author cooperative in 2011; a YA Science Fiction book called How to Date an Alien that has consistently ranked int he top 100 in Amazon for Teen Science Fiction and Romance. Her first New Adult book, My Paper Heart, was published in 2012 and shot up the top of the Amazon best seller charts and surpassed expectations from all the people in 2009 that told her “A college aged character won’t sell.” Her next release is titled The Only Exception, coming in April of 2013. It’s political, New Adult, and everything that makes a girl swoon.
