Some Sort of Love by Melanie Harlow
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Review for 12/31/2018
Yep, this book is still fantastic. I did a little read/listen combo and was happy with the narrators. They did a good job of bringing Levi and Jillian to life. But let's be honest, any time you can picture Franggy as your leading man, you're going to enjoy the story.
And trust me, Levi is a sexy single dad--one you want to go home with. You want to see how it goes, you want more, and you want it all. Because he's sweet and caring and he puts that little boy of his first and there is just something so unbelievably sexy about a man with a child.
Jillian is perfect for Levi and his son, Scotty. She's a pediatrician, she's kind and patient and loving. She's understanding. And she's gorgeous. And she just wants to find the man for her. How could she have predicted her Pine Sol from years past would come back to haunt her?!
You're going to like this book. You'll want to sit down and read it all at once because it's sexy and fun and sweet.
I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review
Okay, I'll admit it: I wanted to read this because of the sexy beast on the cover, but then again, who wouldn't? Franggy is magnificent and somehow he just made it into a book review. That man is perfect. Anyway, that is neither here nor there. Just know that I do judge books by their covers. Let it be known that this is a Fan-fucking-tastic cover.
Okay, so on to the book.
Jillian is the oldest Nixon sister and the last to find love.
Levi is a HBSDILTF. 'Nuff said. Don't know what that means? That's cool, I'll break it down for you: Hot Bearded Single/Super/Sexy/Spectacular Dad I'd Like To Fuck. You see how the 'S' could mean any number of words? Yeah, fill it in as you see fit.
Okay, so back to Jillian. She's a pediatrician, works long hours, lives alone, and listens to everyone criticize her because she hasn't met the one yet.
Levi is raising his 8 year old son by himself. His autistic son. He is also an architect and he has a beard. That's important because not only is it HAWT, but his son also likes it. That's important.
Levi and Jillian run into each other at Sebastian and Skylar's wedding. Literally. Jillian turns around and slams right into Levi. Awesomesauce!! They have met before! Sparks fly, texts happen, let the sexy time commence.
Okay, so it doesn't all happen on one night, but it does happen and it is sooo goood. I know because Jillian told me. She also told Skylar and Natalie. So, we all know and I'm not ruining anything for you.
In great effort to not spoiler the shit out of this review let's just say that some stuff happens. Levi pushes Jillian away and he pulls her back. Repeatedly. Or maybe just once. Either way, it happens and both are miserable without each other. Both realize that their feelings didn't just develop overnight. Both also admit to the amazing connection that they had 11--yes, 11--years prior to their encounter at the wedding. This relationship develops quickly, but it deals with some serious issues.
I appreciate the fact that Melanie Harlow tackles tough issues. Like she took on OCD and anxiety in Some Sort of Happy, she takes on autism in this book. She also takes on single parenting, being 30 and single, and navigating the difficulties of dating while raising a child alone.
