When the Time is Right by M. Mabie and Aly Martinez
Fate doesn’t always happen overnight.
Hudson Bradley is the cockiest, most stubborn, hard-headed man I’ve ever known. And for fifteen years, he’s been my brother’s best friend.
But lately, what I’m feeling for him isn’t friendship at all.
Why is my heart racing every time his blue eyes lock on mine?
Why does every word he rumbles in my ear make my body come alive?
And worst of all, why did I bet him that I could find a woman he and his son would both love?
If I hadn’t given up on love altogether, Hudson would have been perfect for me. After all, he was there the day my world fell apart. He’s spent the last six years piecing me back together.
There are a million reasons why we could never work, but after a single kiss, I can’t remember any of them.
Now that the time is right, I have to make him mine—before I lose him forever.
Okay, this book was definitely a bit of an emotional roller-coaster. It was friends to lovers at it’s finest and the characters had realistic problems between them and in their life. I am just going to warn you know, the last bit of the book I was a big baby and was trying to read the book while crying my eyes out. Woke up with red, irritated eyes and all.
The story line has a few major plot points and twists that come into it, but they were well written and added to the story nicely, rather than just being there to throw a wrench in the story like some authors usually do. This seems to be a norm for Martinez (this is the first book by Mabie I’ve read so I can’t say for her) because if you read my On The Ropes post, you see that I mentioned this as well.
I don’t really like the Goodreads description, where the biggest factor seems to be that Hudson is Alexis’s brothers best friend, because, while that is a point of contention, it is most definitely not the major point of it.
I really liked both Alexis and Hudson and their character development and progression. I don’t think I really have any major or even minor problems with the book to discuss so clearly I recommend it to everyone haha. This book is available on Kindle Unlimited.
