I received an e-book of Just For Fun as part of the blog tour hosted by Reading Addiction Blog Tours for an honest review.
A month or so ago I reviewed Just For Now the third book in the Escape to New Zealand series. I have to admit when the opportunity came up to participate in this tour I jumped on it. I loved the first book I read, how could I pass up this one? Not to mention more rugby and more hot guys. Oh and I might have...maybe...imagined Nic having an accent which may...or may not...have increased his appeal. Okay okay I'll admit it, I'm a sucker for accents.
Regardless, I wasn't disappointed with Just for Fun. Not even a little bit. From the very beginning this book takes you up, drops you down then picks you right back up. There's always something new around the corner. It's one of the few books I've enjoyed that has flashbacks to help you understand how things happened between Nic and Emma. Rosalind James did a great job weaving in their history without overloading you all at once.
There's a spoiler at the very beginning that was easy to figure out, but I don't want to ruin it for it. Let me say, I thought Rosalind handled it very well. I was a little shocked by the ferocity from Nic, but it fit the story perfectly. It's a slow building story, but there's plenty of tension and excitement to keep you entertained.
Count this as another win for Rosalind James!
What if the person who broke your heart turned out to be the only one who could mend it?
Nic Wilkinson is a responsible, organized, disciplined rugby player at the top of his game. Emma Martens is a sometimes-scattered, often-emotional,and always-broke would-be designer with a big chip on her shoulder where Nic’s concerned.
They have no history together, except one perfect week. Nothing in common anymore, except the most important thing of all.
Getting together again would be messy. Complicated. Scary. And, just maybe, worth every risk.
