At the peak of her career, Hollywood star Sienna Fairley turns her back on it all when she finds herself the guardian of her brother’s son. Wanting to give the boy some stability she uproots them both and moves to Mimosa Key. The last person she expects to see is her handsome former Agent, Aaron Madison—the man she’s hidden a massive crush from since the moment she met him. But Aaron’s presence could threaten the new life she’s created.
Aaron Madison never thought he’d see the woman who caused him no end of grief when he arrived at the world famous Casa Blanca Resort, in Barefoot Bay, to be best man at a friend’s wedding. Sienna Fairley’s diva attitude was legendary, her tantrums memorable, but they’re nowhere to be seen now. In fact, her role as a mother shockingly seems to be one tailor made for her. An inconvenient attraction long buried bursts to life.
With the threat of a custody battle hanging over Sienna’s head, it’s the wrong time for Mr. Right to resurface in her life. Or is it the perfect time?
I received an Advance Reading Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
My Rating: 4 Stars
At the end of Nicole’s last Barefoot Bay novel, she hinted at a romance between Sienna and Aaron. I. Was. Living for it! I love it when the main characters not only have a history, but a negative one. Additionally, I liked the glimpses I got of Aaron in Tom’s book, and thought that their friendship would be a fun one to revisit.
The glimpses of Sienna’s relationship with Caleb were really sweet and endearing. I think I could’ve read a whole book of just Sienna and Caleb, honestly. While I would have liked a bit more Aaron and Caleb time, I realize that the length of the book did place some restraints on the growth of that relationship. I also adored that Sienna’s main priority was Caleb and his happiness – I feel like a lot of books with children in them glaze over the child’s needs (not in a neglectful, child abuse way, obviously!) because they are so focused on the romantic part of the plot. Flockton didn’t glaze over Caleb at all – even when Sienna wasn’t with him, the reader knew where he was and what he was doing. With so much of the plot focused on him and the changes he has wrought in Sienna’s life, it was perfect.
If you follow my blog at all, you don’t need to be told again how great Flockton is at writing chemistry and sex scenes. Of course, Wrong Time for Mr. Right had that in spades! Aaron was sweet, attentive and understanding, especially given all of the torture Sienna put him through. What surprised me the most, however, was Sienna’s attitude. Given what we learned about her in the last Barefoot Bay novel, I expected a total and complete diva – what I got was a thoughtful and patient new mother. Though I expected Aaron to be my favorite character of the book, Sienna really won me over.
The only thing keeping this from being a 4.5 or 5 Star book for me was it’s length. I understand the restraints of Kindle Worlds novels, but I really would’ve liked to have seen what Sienna and Aaron’s relationship was like when she was still an actress in LA, how she handled losing her brother and becoming a mother. As I mentioned previously, I liked the new Sienna, but I think I would’ve really loved to read about her transformation, instead of seeing the end result.
My Takeaway: Yet another sweet romance from Nicole Flockton. If you are a sucker for a hate to love romance, this is definitely a great one to pick up.
