Tasty Book Tours Review + Giveaway: Finally by Miranda P. Charles

Time for Love #2
By: Miranda P. Charles

A pact with her best friends had Sarah Daley promising to make time for love after a long period of retreating from relationships. But before she embarked on finding her happily-ever-after, she wanted to do something she'd never done before--experience a short, hot fling. And the hunky Jeffrey Carmichael, grandson of the elderly lady who'd hired her as a private nurse, was the only guy who attracted her for that purpose.

Jeffrey Carmichael had long discovered that flings, not commitment, were what worked best for him. After being dumped by an ex-fiancée shortly after the most devastating period of his life, he'd decided that serious commitment wasn't all it was cracked up to be. So when he was presented with an opportunity to start a casual relationship with his grandmother's fun and pretty nurse, he simply couldn't resist.

When love entered uninvited, could they admit to wanting something more than temporary? And when Jeff couldn't avoid welcoming his ex-fiancée back into his life, could Sarah push aside her ghosts of the past and learn to trust again?

My Thoughts:

Let first say that I actually love that Time for Love series centers around five friends who made a pack at New Years Eve to not be alone. Honestly, I think that's a clever idea for a series. In Forever, we saw Rebecca and Zach reunite. Now it's Sarah's turn to find love in Finally. However, before she finds love she wants a fling and who better than to give her that than Zach's brother, Jeffrey. Plus, it's convenient. We all know by now that in romance stories, flings never workout the way the characters want. 

Let me just say that I sort of predicted Jeffrey's ex would pop in the story, but I wasn't expecting how she would return. The way she reappear in his life made me not like her. For a little bit of the story I didn't like Jeff, and part of the my reasoning is how he handle his ex. He acted like an idiot and he was lucky that Sarah was willing to listen to him, but it took some coaxing. Sarah is a sweet girl in the story and is afraid to give her whole heart to a guy that's not worth the chance. Yes, it stems from a broken relationship. I completely understand why she got bent out of shape when the ex return. 

I enjoyed the story and like how the story progresses from previous book. The story can be read as a stand alone, but would be better enjoyed as reading from the book one. I like how Miranda gives a hint at the end on whats going to happen in the next book. I have to say I can't wait for that story, because I have a feeling it will be a doozy. 

Basically Finally is a light read that has two people who started out with a fling, but progress to something more. Of course, you can't have a story with no conflict, so we have a return of an ex. Can there be a happy-ever-after for Jeff and Sarah? So, if this sounds like your kind of read, you might want to give Finally a try.

Author Info
Ever since I was a young teenager, I have loved reading romance novels. My auntie used to send me boxes of her books and I would devour them one after another.

Every so often, I would read a mystery or a suspense or a paranormal novel as I love those genres too. But romance is still my favourite. :)

For many years, I wrote technical and non-fiction materials for professional use and had only dreamt about writing a novel. Then, one day, after a period of binge-reading sexy romances, I decided to sit in front of my computer and start writing my first fiction book. The result? My debut novel Will To Love, the first in the hot and sexy Lifestyle by Design series. After that, I knew that I would love to tell more beautiful love stories through my books.

I live in Sydney, Australia with my amazing husband who lovingly cheers me on in my journey as a novelist.
