I haven't read the other books in this series, however The Plan can be read as a stand alone without any problems.
Not going to lie, after reading the blurb, I was expecting a lighthearted rom-com. That is so not what we got. Sure, there were elements of the light and fluffy, however there was more drama and angst in this than light and fun.
I like Gabe - he is up front with who he is and you go with that flow. However Marley, I don't know but she just felt like a 13 year old rather than a grown woman.
The story felt a little fractured to me. It just didn't seem to flow for me, at times it jumped and felt rushed. I really did have to suspend belief at times with this one - I know that's what fiction is all about, but these things were just too OTT.
The end felt a bit rushed as all the stories get tied up in a neat little bow.
The story isn't bad, this one just wasn't really one for me.
I do look forward to seeing what Ms James bring us next.

Not for love, for baby.
That's what I thought.
Then I found out my fiancé had a vasectomy. The life I thought I had? Nope. Suddenly I'm 33, and I don't even have a kissing buddy.
When my mom's health takes a turn and I wind up back in my hometown of Fate, Alabama, I tell myself to leave things up to...well, you know.
Then I see Gabriel McKellan. He's Fate's most famous son, a bestselling author who is beautiful, complicated, and living just below me. In addition to his plus-sized brain, Gabe's well-endowed in other ways, and great in bed to boot. I would know. He's my ex husband.
When I suggest The Plan, I don't imagine that he'll take the bait. It's been ten years, and we don't work. But Fate has other plans for both of us.
