Ok, so having read only one other book by this author, which quite frankly was a bit high on angst and hatred for me and left me a tad depressed, this is not an author I have been up for trying again any time soon. However, I read a review that this was a touch more lighthearted than some of her other works I though I would try her again!
I am so glad I did! I loved this book!
The heroine, known as the “other” sister (with her 2 sisters being the “cute” and “pretty” ones) she was used to being in the background, overlooked, made fun of, expected to never have a man etc.
Mason had grown up being known, along with his brother as the guys who were always in trouble, not expected to make much of himself. Only he joined the army, and made a decent life for himself away from home, and had returned after 13 years away.
One night, his brother convinces him to spend time with Daisy so that he can try and get the attention of the “Cute” sister Daffodil.
But Mason ends up actually liking Daisy as a person more than he thought, and having fun. So when Daisy finds out he was being the “wingman” she comes up with a plan for him to be HER wingman at the other sisters wedding.
What follows is a truly lovely story of “friends” to lovers, and learning to actually have confidence in yourself and that everyone has their own insecurities. I loved Daisy’s family, especially her parents. I really really enjoyed it.
What made it not quite a 5 for me? Well, Mason spent a bit too much time in the beginning denying his attraction to Daisy, not believing he fancied her etc…..
And the way everyone viewed Daisy, ok so she was not model tall and slim like her sisters, but from the description, she was pretty, just shorter and curvier yet it seemed like people responded to her like she had hit every branch on the ugly tree on the way down to earth!
And for me the ending felt a touch rushed!
But, it was still a great read, and I would re read it again, I can see it becoming a favourite re read.
