The storm of the century is about to hit Little Bridge Island, Florida—and it’s sending waves crashing through Sabrina “Bree” Beckham’s love life…
When a massive hurricane severs all power and cell service to Little Bridge Island—as well as its connection to the mainland—twenty-five-year-old Bree Beckham isn’t worried . . . at first. She’s already escaped one storm—her emotionally abusive ex—so a hurricane seems like it will be a piece of cake.
But animal-loving Bree does become alarmed when she realizes how many islanders have been cut off from their beloved pets. Now it’s up to her to save as many of Little Bridge’s cats and dogs as she can . . . but to do so, she’s going to need help—help she has no choice but to accept from her boss’s sexy nephew, Drew Hartwell, the Mermaid Café’s most notorious heartbreaker.
But when Bree starts falling for Drew, just as Little Bridge’s power is restored and her penitent ex shows up, she has to ask herself if her island fling was only a result of the stormy weather, or if it could last during clear skies too.
Meg Cabot and I go way back. All the way back to highschool when I discovered her Mediator series and devoured them. It was the first time I had to wait for a book to come out in a series and I remember the anticipation! Upon this reflection I realized I should really blame Meg Cabot for that “waiting for a new book to come out feeling”.
Interestingly though I kind of lost track of her books after that. Until No Judgements! I saw it was coming out and the excitement spiked and I knew I had to review it. So glad I did! It was such a feel good rom com.
I really loved the main character. She was strong and had a good head on her shoulders. Nothing about her irritated me (which is a problem with many rom coms for Milana). I also learned a lot about hurricanes! I live in the land of ice and snow so it was a really interesting aspect for me in a book.
My one qualm was that I was waiting the entire time for her to save some pets. The blurb on the back pitches that she spends her time saving all the critters but that didn’t happen until well after the first half of the book. Maybe my animal loving heart just really pin pointed on that aspect and kept waiting for it to happen? Either way it was just a small annoyance. I can’t even call it an annoyance. More of a tid bit.
Looking forward to reading more Meg Cabot in the future!
