Book Review: No Vacancy by Stephanie Rose

Synopsis:

Can a summer fling become the love of a lifetime?

Perpetual good girl Caterina Longo is dependable to a fault. At 33, she’s never called in sick. Never had a one-night stand. Never taken a chance in her entire life. When she walks in on a cheating ex and sees everything wrong with her life, she takes off on a solo vacation, busting out of her comfort zone and into the arms of a guy she never saw coming.

Joe Hunter has no room for distractions. Making his restaurant a success and proving his worth to his family—and himself—is his sole focus. At least it is until a beautiful stranger, in search of fried food and a shoulder, wanders in one night.
Is two weeks of unexpected, life-altering passion all they’re meant to share? What happens when vacation ends and real life takes over?

My Review:

I loved this whirlwind romance. It’s not often you find a romance about a couple in their thirties, not looking for love, but finding it anyway.

Caterina Longo flees her apartment days earlier than planned to go on vacation. Distracted and upset, she takes a three hour drive to her destination, giving her three days to herself, or so she thought. Once at her destination, needing food and WiFi, she heads over to the restaurant across the street where she meets Joe Hunter.

Joe and Caterina don’t waste anytime jumping into each others lives, but what they keep putting aside is that in reality, after a week, Caterina would have to leave to get back to her life in the city – three hours away. Are their feelings for each other strong enough for a long distance relationship?

Stephanie Rose, wrote a beautiful little romance about two grown ups that knows exactly what they’re doing, but still acting a little like love sick teenagers. The book was a pleasure to read, I wanted to know how the story ends. These two characters took on this challenge of a long distance relationship head on and made it work. Obviously as in reality things are not all moonshine and roses and they hit a few bumps in the road, but they perservere. The book was easy and quick to read and kept me wanting to know if Joe & Cat will make this work.

My Rating: 4/5
