Someone Like You

Julia Dare is trying to run her own business, raise her young son, Max, and help her widowed mother. Her biggest worry, though, is keeping Max's father from being a bad influence while still allowing the boy to spend time with his dad.

When an account from her event-planning business sends her to Caliente Springs resort, she's shocked to encounter Zeke Monroe, her college sweetheart. Zeke is determined to keep Caliente Springs running despite financial trouble.

When Julia walks back into his life, he's surprised at the feelings she stirs up. As they work together on an important client's wedding, the fate of the resort soon depends on their success. With Zeke and Julia both pushed to their limits, will their history put up walls between them or bring them together?

Cafe Lily's Review:

So far, this would be my top pick for your summer 2016 vacation read. 

I loved this book from start to finish.  The characters were very easy to connect to and I found myself engrossed in the story, right away. Julia is trying to balance her career and motherhood, all while trying to help her widowed mother, which many of us can relate to.

There was romance of course, but I liked that it wasn't overly done. It developed very naturally.  There is a good balance of conflict, tension, humor, and real life struggle in this book. Julia's ex, and the father of her son is the perfect antagonist for this storyline.

Perfect book to curl up with while at the beach, or relaxing by the pool.

I highly recommend it!
