Ever since I came back from Australia I've been stuck in a funk with my reading and nothing seems to be holding my attention enough for me to finish. I honestly do not believe it's the books, it's totally me. I just need to know how to get out of it. However, that being said I did mange to push through and read this.
What would you do if every word you wrote came true?
That's Georgia's blessing - or curse. Ever since she was little, if Georgia Kilduff wrote a wish on paper, that wish would come true. Except for one - Georgia can't seem to write her Happily Ever After.
Now a successful romance novelist, Georgia travels the world signing copies of her novels for avid fans of her main character - 'the perfect man,' Douglas MacCready.
Get in line, ladies. Georgia loves him too. If only he really existed.
When she meets Garrett MacCauley - a charming book store owner in Inverness - Georgia is startled by some striking similarities, from his middle name to a scar on his right hand. Hell, he even shags like him!
But Douglas MacCready can't be real. He's just a character in her book, right?
Or has Georgia carried him with her all along?
I first saw this book on a Facebook ad and the blurb got me to buy the book straight away. Although I wasn't personally impressed with the cover, it definitely fits with the story. I would describe this story as a contemporary romance novel mixed with fairytale powers and sex.
I'm going to start with the ONE thing I did not like about this book. Not only was it VERY explicit, ie very in key with the age 18 rating and in my experience, very unbelievable. An intimate exchange between two characters a few hours after they met just seemed forced for the book for me, that being said it set up the romance in the book.
I really enjoyed the plot of the story, and it was definitely a read that some people won't put down. I will definitely be seeking out more Michaela Wright's books, as her writing was effortless in portraying a story.
Georgia's character was brilliant and so strong emotionally, especially when she's going through some horrible circumstances. She's a writer under the pen name Victoria Mason, a fitting job for someone who was taught at an early age to write down her wishes. Georgia also has a mystical gift and whatever she writes usually comes to pass.
Without giving more away, a book signing in a small bookstore in Scotland puts the steps in motion for a heart-wrenching romantic story.
