Slow burn but lovely read...
21 December 2018
I am a fan of Winter Renshaw and was intrigued by the storyline of ‘War and Love’. As the Book Synopsis states, Jude was hired by Love’s ex-husband to pursue her –primarily so he would no longer have to pay her spousal support.
This is the story of Love Aldridge, who is a newly divorced woman, rebuilding her life and trying to establish a charity that helps women who are experiencing financial challenges. Her divorce left her with a sizable amount of money that she realises gives her the advantage that many women do not have and she wants to help. When moving into her new apartment on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, she meets her new neighbour, Jude Warner.
I loved Jude from the beginning. He made a poor choice but for good reasons which were to help his sister and her children. I could feel their attraction to each other and enjoyed how they took their time to get to know one another. What started out as pretend on his part soon turned into the real deal.
The twist in the story kept me reading and interested in these characters. Although their courtship seems rushed, because of his agreement with her ex, they seemed to really connect. They had great chemistry and their relationship was hot and sweet at the same time.
This story is told from dual POV which is my favourite as the reader gets both points of view which is especially important for this story. I loved how they met at the fountain and how that special spot continued to be included in the story.
5 Stars again Ms. Winter...
