Learning to Love
by Jennifer Wilck

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Contemporary Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Dina Jacobs is a single librarian who has never fit in due to her off-the-charts intelligence, frizzy hair and rounder-than-socially-acceptable figure. She left her past behind until she receives an invitation to her ten-year high school reunion, and all her insecurities return.

Adam Mandel is a single corporate attorney who just missed his third deadline at his father's law firm, the law firm where he is up for junior partner. With his reputation on the line, Adam needs all the help he can get to convince his father that he deserves the promotion.

When Dina and Adam run into each other on a deserted road, Dina thinks Mr. Flashypants can't possibly be interested in someone like her. Adam thinks Dina is just the person to help him improve his reputation. Lies and insecurities force them to take a look at themselves. Can they trust each other to look beyond the surface?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT TWO:

“You’re a genius.”

She was, but it wasn’t something she mentioned during the first week of a relationship, so she doubted he referred to her IQ. “What are you talking about?”

“My dad is on my case about being more responsible, improving my image, etc. When he saw you with me, he backed down. This is the solution to all our problems.”

This time she stiffened. He couldn’t be...

“You need me to take you to the reunion. I need you to help my dad see I’m mature enough, attentive enough, for the promotion.”

...he was. Did she misread his intentions after he sent her those flowers?

“We were already going to the reunion together,” she said. “And shouldn’t your performance at work determine whether or not you get a promotion?”

“I need a hidden weapon outside of work. And you, my dear,” he planted a kiss on her forehead, “are it.”

No, no, no. “You don’t need a weapon. You need to have a conversation with your dad to fix things.”

“My dad doesn’t work your way.”

The sinking feeling in her stomach increased. Because while she had started to feel something for Adam, he’d turned her into a career asset for his own ambition.

“You’ll help me convince my father, right?”

BOOK REVIEW:


Wow!  Amazing characters that you will fall in love with and root for their happiness!

This book is a happy, feel-good, enjoyable, entertaining read!

This book is about Dina Jacobs, a frizzy-haired, out-of-place, socially awkward, super intelligent, librarian.  Dina receives an invite to her 10-year high school reunion and is in crisis mode trying to find a date and decide if she should even go back to the one place she felt evermore like an outcast.

This book is about Adam Mandel, a smart, good-looking, corporate attorney, with a somewhat fake, cocky, player-ish attitude.  Adam is up for a big promotion to be a junior partner at the firm – his dad’s law firm, but he keeps missing deadlines and slacking off.

However, when Dina gets a flat tire and Adam stops to help, this chance encounter could be the perfect solution for each other’s problems!  Dina needs a date for her high school reunion event and Adam needs a serious girlfriend to show his dad he’s grown up and is ready for more responsibility.

As both need something from each other it becomes more of an arrangement at first – but could these two actually fall in love and this pretend relationship turn into the real thing?!  No spoilers here!!  But you definitely will want to read this book and find out!!

This book keeps you totally engaged from page one through the very last page!  I truly had a hard time putting this book down!

I really liked the main characters, Dina and Adam!!  They were likable, relatable, and genuine.  Both characters had some serious low self-esteem issues and personal insecurities.  They both dealt with them differently and tried to keep them hidden from the world.  However, when they were together – they were able to just be themselves…  And that’s why they were so perfect together – because they were being their honest, true selves – and trusting each other with that openness.

I think a lot of readers will able to relate to Dina as many of us battle with personal insecurities and it’s often something we try to keep hidden from others.  Plus, I’m sure readers will also be cheering Dina on – from when she shows up the means girls at the reunion to the cute, real feelings developing moments with Adam!!  You can’t help but root for this adorable couple!!

I think the author did a fantastic job on her character development as these characters were so real and personal on many levels.

I really enjoyed reading this book and totally had a smile on most of the time I was reading it!

This book has a great storyline that flows, terrific writing style with detailed scenes, well-developed characters, is steady paced, and keeps you completely entertained through the last page.

This book is the third book in the Serendipity Book Series.  I had not read either of the books in this series before reading this book.  I did not get lost or confused, so this book can be read as a standalone.  However, there are many references to the previous book and the characters seem to overlap.  However, since I liked this book, I would suggest getting in from the beginning and starting with book one, so you don’t miss anything.

For me, this book absolutely worked!!!  It hit everything I look for and need when I am reading and reviewing a book!!!

All in all, I would absolutely recommend this book, and this author as I was truly impressed with the quality of writing, intriguing storyline, and excellent character development!  I will definitely be continuing to follow this author and check out her upcoming books!

AUTHOR BIO:


Jennifer started telling herself stories as a little girl when she couldn’t fall asleep at night. Pretty soon, her head was filled with these stories and the characters that populated them. Even as an adult, she thinks about the characters and stories at night before she falls asleep or walking the dog. Eventually, she started writing them down. Her favorite stories to write are those with smart, sassy, independent heroines; handsome, strong and slightly vulnerable heroes; and her stories always end with happily ever after.

In the real world, she’s the mother of two amazing daughters and wife of one of the smartest men she knows. When she’s not writing, she loves to laugh with her family and friends, is a pro at finding whatever her kids lost in plain sight, and spends way too much time closing doors that should never have been left open in the first place. She believes humor is the only way to get through the day and does not believe in sharing her chocolate.

She writes contemporary romance, some of which are mainstream and some of which involve Jewish characters. She’s published with The Wild Rose Press and all her books are available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and The Wild Rose Press.
