Official Blurb:

I’m living a life I hate, then he walks into my world and changes it.
I’m thirty-two years old, but I feel like I’m still stuck in high school. I wear my hair the same way, I have a job in the same building, and I still fear the mean girls.
When I’m invited to the high school reunion, I decide not to go. And then the most handsome man literally knocks me off my feet, sweeps me into his arms, and offers to be my date.
His name is Brax Nash, the hottest man I’ve ever seen in real life. How could I possibly say no to him?
But how long will a man like him stay with a girl like me? Is this really happening, or is fate playing a joke on me?

My Thoughts:

This was such a lovely, heart-warming story. It was really gripping, and it had such a different vibe to the usual ‘New Adult Romance’ theme. It is about a girl that has been worn down by nasty comments her whole life. When she meets Brax, she realises it’s time to change, to come out of her shell, and to throw away the shackles that have held her back.
We really feel for Maggie, as I’m sure we all know someone that went through what she went through at school. I was lucky but my sister not so much. So I could really resonate with her and felt everything that she was going through. She is such a likeable character that you are rooting for her and really hoping that she gets the fantastic happy ever after that she deserves!
We don’t get to know Brax that much which is a shame, we are given his credentials but I would have liked to hear his ‘voice’ a little more, he seemed like he was the perfect gentleman and ‘right’ for Maggie, but I wanted to make sure that he was by seeing his side of things. I guess I felt quite protective of Maggie!
Overall, a really excellent addition to the Flirt Club’s May Flowers series!
