Review: Draw Me Close

Book Review: Draw Me Close, by Nicole Michaels

✩✩

Lindsey Morales is a beautiful, talented decorator with a popular lifestyle blog. She always knows just how to make things look perfect. But when it comes to her love life, there’s no design trick she can use to cover up the obvious: Her broken heart.
Eight years ago, Derek Walsh just wasn’t ready to choose a long-term relationship over his career. But now that the handsome, hot-shot architect has the chance to see Lindsey again—working with her to renovate an old farmhouse—he will do everything he can to repair the damage of the past. But is he finally ready to build a real future…if Lindsey is willing to take him back?

Genre: contemporary romance

Publication date: March 2016

Mature content: yes

Review: for me, reading this book was more about satisfying my curiosity about Lindsey and Derek than anything else, because I had some difficulty getting into both the characters and the story.

Derek spends most of the time assuming things about how Lindsey feels, thinks, reacts, and often those reactions come across as a bit rude and aggressive. Besides, the two of them seem to be always in the same place - he wants to get her back but keeps saying and doing all the wrong things; she wants to forget him but never really manages to let go. They sound like teenagers, not adults. At some point they were both so miserable I wanted to whack then both in the head and tell them to either get down to it or just move on.


Don't get me wrong, Draw Me Close is still a very enjoyable romance novel, and even though it's book three in the Hearts and Crafts series by Nicole Michaels, it can be perfectly read stand alone. In my opinion, though, it's not the best in the series. 

Happy Monday,
