Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
I’m not sure that love is in the cards for me.
I used to believe I really wanted to be married. But now that I’m getting divorced from my ex-wife, I’m not sure anymore. Despite being close to her, there was no passion in our relationship. I’m starting to think I may never find someone to fall passionately in love with…
But I am really starting to like this Hunter kid.
I’ve been hurt one too many times.
After a bad break up and losing my job, it’s beginning to feel like my life is falling apart. So when I get an opportunity to dogsit for a recent divorcee, it feels like things might really turn around. The only problem is that this recent divorcee is funny, handsome, and incredibly charming.
But I don’t want to fall for my straight boss. I can’t handle the sting of another rejection.
One thing author Hayden Hunt consistently delivers is a carefree type of story, one in which the reader can escape from the mundane, daily routine. What angst and/or conflict that emerges in the couple’s relationship is typically laid out clearly, dished about back and forth, and then tidily resolved. Plot lines aren’t complicated, dark and dreary, or depressing, but instead hopeful and, for the most part, light-hearted. Truth be told, the editing/proofing always troubles me a bit – as does the sometimes unfocused, repetitive-type dialogue – but for some reason that I haven’t been able to figure out, I’m always willing to issue a pass to Hunt and always am quick to download anything new and bump it up towards the top of my queue because it’s always an upbeat story and I can’t wait to read it.
Forever Soulmates introduces us to Hunter and David. Hunter has just split from a cheating partner, but finds himself drawn to his new boss, a recent divorce’ who is 10 years his senior and most likely straight – except he’s really not. Their perfectly charming and sweet relationship hits a bumpy patch – the challenge of long-distance – and it’s Hunter, not David, who much conquer his fears. It was a treat watching David be the one to figure this one out. Just further proof that meeting and being with the right one is worth the extra effort and making touch choices.
