A week or two ago I did a review tour of Slyvie Fox "In the Nick Of Time" So here is my review, a little late.
My Rating: 3 1/2 Stars
Divorced and done with her dry spell, Holly Prentice is ready to get back in the game. But with two conditions: her future mate can’t be married to his career, and he has to have a couch. Nick Andreis loves his job, and his only furniture is a king-size bed. He’s also single, sexy, and six years Holly’s junior. Any guy this hunky and carefree can’t be serious about the future.
After one spontaneous and explosive night, Holly decides that her search for Mr. Right can wait. Nick can be Mr. Right Now.
Nick has waited years for Holly. Now that she’s dating again, he’s determined to be the only man in her life. He wants what Holly wants: forever. Convincing her of that won’t be easy, but Nick agrees—with fingers crossed behind his back—to Holly’s idea that they can be bed buddies until someone serious comes along. His plan: use the time between their passionate nights to convince her that he is the one.
Will Holly’s unexpected pregnancy change the rules of their games? Or can they both decide to play for keeps?
This book was different in a way. It’s still a great concept for a book.
Holly is a divorced 30 something. She is shy, and unsure of herself, but she does know what she wants. Her friend says she needs to get back out there, and she feels she’s ready too. She agrees to attend a party with all the friends her and her ex husband had together. She knows she can’t avoid them forever. Holly is the type of character that I don’t really like too much. She knows what she wants, but she is also stuck up and in her own head. She makes decisions with out giving anyone a chance. She runs into an old friend Nick, he was the type of character that I love the young hot guy that has it all. A great body, a career, he is like every girls dream man. Holly is really hesitant about him at first but decides to go see his new house anyways. She doesn’t really look at him as a potential date, she doesn’t think he can be serious; her reasoning was that he didn’t have a couch. He was also a friend of her ex husband, so she doesn’t look at him like that either. She also had a huge deal with her age, because Nick was in his late 20’s and she was in her early 30’s. She did make me mad over this. Nick peruses her anyways without knowing that she will never take him seriously, it takes nick a lot, Holly finally agrees to see him on a regular basis, and the only catch is that it is purely physical. Holly doesn’t believe nick can be her Mr. Right; he’s just her Mr. Right now. Things are really good between the two of them, Holly just couldn’t get past her insecurities, Then all of a sudden she is pregnant, that makes her withdraw from nick even more, she makes all the assumptions before even just giving him a chance. I was really frustrated with holly a lot. She started to grow on me though, insecurities and all. I found this story sucked me in from the moment she met Nick, and I didn’t put it down until I finished it. Overall it was a great read and had just enough Drama to keep you interested.
