Book Review: Third Time's the Charm by Heather Moore

Liz, Gemma, Arie, Jess, and Drew have been best friends since creating “the Five” at Aliso Creek High School. But that was over ten years ago, and each is still trying to find that perfect someone . . . if perfect is even possible.

In fact, Liz Carlson will settle for a normal man. A normal man with a job, that is. Married twice, then divorced twice, Liz had her rose-colored glasses fall off and shatter on the ground a long time ago. Her main focus now is raising her six-year-old daughter and surviving long days at work on her feet as a hairdresser. When Sloane Branden answers her call for help, quite literally, Liz doesn’t even give him a second glance. She has sworn off dating for as many years as it takes, and it seems that Sloane has done the same after his own tumultuous marriage. But when Liz realizes that Sloane defies every stereotypical deadbeat she has dated, she might just find room in her heart and discover the third time’s the charm.

I have to be honest, I don't normally like romance novellas. I don't ever remember that until I start reading them either! The problem with a short romance story for me is that there are so many things the story has to do in such a short amount of time. Like develop likeable characters, create a bond between characters, have incredible romantic tension, and have a believable, yet hard to overcome obstacle that can still be overcome in just a matter of pages. I'm in awe of anyone that can overcome any of these limitations in a short romance story. I must say that Heather did that with the obstacle in this story. It took me a bit by surprise, it was a new obstacle in a romance story and one that made me laugh right out loud! But I loved that element! It was a nice quick read and made me smile, so while it wasn't one of my favorite books by Heather, it was worth the download.
