My Review
Jaxie is a food critic with her own show on TV while her boyfriend, Brent is the famous NFL quarterback. The favorite couple for the press, Jaxie is sure that she has found her true love in Brent. But apparently that is not the case with Brent who dumps Jaxie with reasons like she is not adventurous enough and that they are not suited. Determined to show him her adventurous side, Jaxie applies and gets selected for a reality show called "The Husband Hunt". Ready with a plan, Jaxie is set to show Brent and all the world her true impulsive and adventurous side. What she doesnt plan, is falling in love.

What will Jaxie do now?
Can she decide if she loves Brent and wants him back or is her new love her true love?

I just loved this short story by Kiki Abbott. My first book by her, I have fallen in love with her style of writing and recommend her to everyone. She writes under two names, Kiki Abbott for her short novellas/stories and Kim Hornsby for romantic suspense novels.

The plot is expertly conceived and carried out. I was sucked into the story right from the start and kept hooked till the very end. Thoroughly entertained, I just loved Jaxie. She is meticulous, a planner and a woman who craves a family with kids and a house with a white picket fence. Being a talented chef and a looker are a bonus! :)
Crane is classically handsome with a hint of mystery about him that instantly pulled me towards him. I loved the scenes between these two and they had me reliving the days when I too fell in love for the first time! :)

A beautifully written story with great characters, I give it a 4.5 out of 5 and strongly recommend that you go read the books by this author who writes under two names. Th next book, The Husband Hunt - Kat's Season is now in my TBR and I look forward to reading more from the author.  :)

  2. I havent read the series but will surely check it out now.. The Husband Hunt I totally loved and its currently FREE on amazon.. :)

  3. I loved this review and just checked and yes I have it so hopefully will be reading it soon

  4. I just grabbed this book over the past week (for Free too) so I'm really glad that it turned out so good. I love using reality tv competitions as a setting for a book, and these characters sound like the perfect mix.

  5. Do read and I hope you like it.. :)

  6. This sounds like a pretty fun read! I do enjoy books that have a story that involves reality TV, even if I don't watch many reality shows myself. Is it closely based on The Bachelor?

    I'm happy you enjoyed this so much, it's always nice to read a story with good character development and expertly done plot.
