Curveball by Mariah Dietz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
::..Reviewed for Red's Midnight Readers..::
I was kindly provided with an ARC in exchange for an honest review, I have given it 4 stars.
This is the first book that I have read by Mariah Dietz but it won't be the last.
The blurb intrigued me and pulled me in but I will admit that I did struggle to get into the story initially but once I did I was hooked. I couldn't put it down.
Curveball wasn't what I was expecting, I thought I was getting a book filled with angst but what I got was less than I was expecting but more than I was expecting at the same time.
It was a sweet romance with no angst but lots of drama and a little twist that you won't see coming. It was filled with such depth and emotion that you would be hard pressed to not feel anything whilst reading this story.
It had such a consistent and smooth writing style that made it hard to put down and characters that you couldn't help but love.
Coen, the firefighting hero was simply irresistible and Ella, although there were times that she grated on me, I found her quite endearing and enjoyed watching her character blossom.
Overall I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to everyone!!
Shakespeare believed there was always humor in tragedy and tragedy in humor.
My life proved his theory as fact.
At eighteen I was a single parent moving to this small town to be with the man I loved. The one who was supposed to love and cherish me in return.
Finding out he had a wife was tragic.
Remaining in love with him in spite of her was more tragic.
My mom and best friend setting me up on a long string of blind dates was an ongoing tragedy.
Nine years later, I’ve learned to see the humor in most situations.
My mom and best friend setting me up on disastrous blind dates.
My son’s jokes.
The fire alarm going off each time I cook.
My constant bright spot always adding to the humor was my son, Hayden. But when Hayden had a life-threatening allergic reaction, the man who came to help my little boy became my own savior. His laugh, his smile, and the way his eyes lit up when he spoke to my son made him a beacon of light in both our lives.
But I wasn’t the only one who noticed him.
When I began having feelings for the man my best and only friend had fallen for, I knew following my heart would once again lead to a fresh round of heartbreak.
Love led me to this town.
Lies kept me there.
Would history repeat itself?
Or had life just thrown me another Curveball?
