#5BlushReview~~Book Lovers by Emily Henry
One summer. Two rivals. A plot twist they didn’t see coming….
Nora Stephens’ life is books—she’s read them all—and she is not that type of heroine. Not the plucky one, not the laidback dream girl, and especially not the sweetheart. In fact, the only people Nora is a heroine for are her clients, for whom she lands enormous deals as a cutthroat literary agent, and her beloved little sister Libby.
Which is why she agrees to go to Sunshine Falls, North Carolina for the month of August when Libby begs her for a sisters’ trip away—with visions of a small-town transformation for Nora, who she’s convinced needs to become the heroine in her own story. But instead of picnics in meadows, or run-ins with a handsome country doctor or bulging-forearmed bartender, Nora keeps bumping into Charlie Lastra, a bookish brooding editor from back in the city. It would be a meet-cute if not for the fact that they’ve met many times and it’s never been cute.
If Nora knows she’s not an ideal heroine, Charlie knows he’s nobody’s hero, but as they are thrown together again and again—in a series of coincidences no editor worth their salt would allow—what they discover might just unravel the carefully crafted stories they’ve written about themselves.
Louisa’s 5 Blush Review
Last year I read my first Emily Henry book and I am a forever fan. Her writing is so easy to read and she brings you into her characters’ lives with such ease.
Nora, a cut-throat agent just wants what’s best for everyone else..that’s her priority in life. Be it her clients, her mother, or her sister Libby (and her family). Nora is the best. She’s so giving and understanding but it takes spending time with someone she believes is her enemy to find out who exactly she is.
Charlie is a dream, he took a bit to make me fall in love, but he did it without remorse on my part, at all.
I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this book. Watching the characters transform was brilliant. this is one of those books that you need to just read and trust the process, Emily Henry is someone I will be watching for more new releases as her books are delightful to read!
