Our customer reviews

Somebody To Love is my second book read from Kristan Higgins. The first was Until There Was You, which I loved it. So when this one was on NetGalley, I couldn't wait to read it. Parker Welles is a single mom, who lives in a mansion and is doing great by her own. Except when her father loses the family fortune, she's practically left with nothing. The only thing left for her is an old house at Maine, which she's going to fix and sell to be close to her son's father. I liked Parker, but I didn't give 5 stars to be book because of her. She was good, sweet, and wasn't afraid to work, but I couldn't stand the way she talked about Ethan, her son's father. Apparently they were friends, had one night, and she got pregnant. They weren't in love, and then he fell in love with another woman. They are all cool and share their son, but Ethan was treated like an angel. He's a good person, but I hate when people doesn't move on... James Cahill was her father's lawyer, and he has always been there. Parker hates him, and calls him "Thing One". She hates him because he's her father's right hand, and she thinks he's fake. Turns out James isn't, he's sweet, caring and actually likes Parker (I don't know why, since she treated him bad). He's also hot, which is a plus, and decides to help Parker to fix her new house. I don't know how James could stand Parker when she talked about Ethan. But he did. Also, I don't know how he was so patient with her son, who didn't like him...But I really liked James, he was a good protagonist and for a while I just wanted him to be happy, even if that meant Parker wasn't in his life. Overall, I like Kristan Higgins writing, not only because her romances are sweet with happy endings., but because they are easy to enjoy, and realistic. Somebody to Love fulfilled my expectations, Parker and James needed time to heal and be brave enough to start a new life together.show more

It's a sweet cliche love story. But I love it so much. I think it's the 2nd Higgins book written from 2 POVs, both the hero and the heroin. But since Parker's POV toward James tended to be negative, I think James POV was necessary here. And it worked, he's so adorable, you'll love his voice. Parker situation was a bit complicated. She's a single mother of 5 yrs old boy, and still well connected to the father, Ethan Mirabelli, who was crazy in love and recently married to Parker's bestfriend, Lucy. Sound familiar? Ethan and Lucy's story was beautifully written in The Next Best Thing. From the previous book we were introduced to Parker Welles, a gorgeous rich woman once had dated Ethan and together they raised Nicky, a beautiful boy of theirs. Both had never married coz Parker knew that Ethan's heart was always for Lucy. Being the only daughter of a millionaire family she never worried about money. All her works, a very succesful children book called the Holy Rollers, was donated to a charity to save children. Unfortunatelly, her father goes bankrupt and all her trust fund trusted to her father to be managed was all gone. Now she has no luxury house, no grand money, and no new book inspirations, she has to accept whatever left for her, which is an ugly ruined small house in Maine. Despite a very beautiful ocean view, it need a lot of work. And being no other resource she had to accept James' help to fix the house. James was her father's attorney she always hated. Her relationship with her father was always cold, so her father's minions always get the same reaction from her. Forced to live together for 3 weeks made her see the real personality of James Cahill. The setting of the book bring us back to the story of Maggie and Malone from Catch of the Day where we would read further about their sweet relationship. I love both main characters, Parker and James. Parker is so great, you'll love her from the beginning. Gone down the hill didn't make her complain much. Instead of whining on her losses, she did what she had to do and intended to keep move on. She's willing to learn new things, happy to meet new people and made friends, worked hard to earn a few, even fall in love with the new place she lived far from home. While James...well..he's so amazing you'll love him instantly. Just read the book.show more
