Now That It’s You by Tawna Fenske
Synopsis from Goodreads:
“Talented chef Meg Delaney hasn’t spoken to her cheating ex-fiancé, Matt Midland, for two years. Ditching him at the altar after blurting out “I can’t” instead of “I do” would sour any relationship. But now, just as Meg is finally ready to bury the hatchet, she learns closure is permanently off the menu. And the kicker? Matt’s brother, Kyle, is back in her life, stirring up feelings that are equal parts guilt and lust.
Meg was the best thing that never happened to Kyle. He couldn’t make a move on his brother’s girlfriend—even if Matt didn’t value her nearly enough. The situation is even more complicated now that Meg’s bestselling aphrodisiac cookbook has spawned a legal battle with the Midlands. Maybe he should stay away. But love, like family, plays by its own rules. And the one woman he shouldn’t want might be the only one who’s perfect for him.”
Now That It’s You is a light romance/women’s fiction novel about a caterer falling for her late ex-fiancé’s brother. From the start, the quality of the story is apparent and I didn’t want to put the book down. All of the main characters are likable or, at least, understandably unlikable. Even the worst actions of the characters fit their personalities and the story. It’s hard to talk about it too much without spoiling the plot, but the romance is great and the non-romance plot is also very good. I truly loved reading this and would recommend it to anyone looking for a light romance with a great story.
I gave this four stars because it was fun, smart, and a delight to read. It would be a great beach read if it had come out in the summer, but it will be just as delightful with some tea and a cozy chair.
