Workin' on You by Claire Hastings - ARC Review & Release Blitz



Everyone has secrets.

Mine? I’ve loved Sylvie Forde since we were eight years old. Not that she has any idea.

Being stuck in the friend zone with her is better than nothing at all. Love from afar is all I’ve ever been able to muster up the courage for, even though I want so much more. I finally get my chance when Sylvie asks for my help.

Late nights, a surprise litter of kittens, and hushed confessions lead to kissing and a whole lot more. Everything I’ve ever wanted.

Only problem—there’s something else I’m keeping from Sylvie. Something big.

Secrets are hard to keep in our small Georgia town, yet I’ve managed to keep this one. If I want a future with the girl of my dreams, I have to come clean. And hope that I don’t lose her forever.

I love a good small town romance so I was excited to read Camden and Silvie's story.

There were parts of this book I enjoyed. As their relationship progressed, I really enjoyed them together. I liked the way it evolved and the way they explored their mutual attraction. The end part, while predictable, did work.

That said, I am not sure I totally believed the beginning of their romance. It seemed oddly abrupt and for some reason it didn't feel authentic, enough that it was sort of something that bothered me a bit for the entire book.

I think I wanted to see more of the connection and it felt more like the reader was told about it rather than shown the romance, and I think that made the transition to lovers feel a little stilted. Once we got to the rest of the relationship, it worked and I liked both of them.

That said, overall I enjoyed and recommend this title.
