When Love Arrives by Johnnie Alexander

when-love-arrives-book-cover

Dani Prescott is furious when she hears that Brett Somers blames her mother for the crash that killed his parents. It is difficult enough that her own mother also died in the plane crash, but now she also has to hear lies about her mother. Yes as she decides to follow Brett and see if she can dig up any dirt on him, she is suddenly surprised when he asks her out on a date. She says yes, if only to get to know him better and discover how she can destroy these lies. Brett suspects Dani is hiding something from him, but he is nonetheless drawn to her. As both of their secrets come to light, they must work through the lies that could harm their fragile relationship.

Despite the cute cover and interesting premise, I could not really get into this novel as well as I had hoped. I honestly did not really like Dani at first and therefore had a hard time learning to like her as her character developed. The plot was choppy at times and I did not like the way the story developed in the middle. However, the book did have a good, yet predictable, ending and I liked some of the romantic interactions between Dani and Brett; it was easy to see why they would be a good couple together. These individuals have some depth and good development throughout the novel. Since some characters and storylines are continuations from the first novel, I recommend reading that book first. This novel is probably best suited for those who like contemporary romances.

I received a copy of this book from Revell Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
