With a brand-new M.D. behind her name and a wonderful man by her side, Nichole Atherton thought she had her happily-ever-after all sorted out. Then her fiancé told her he was gay. Nic can fake a smile better than anyone, but she’s hanging by a thread. She just has to make it through her best friend’s wedding…and an encounter with his nightmare little brother, Tucker Matthews.
Weddings make Tucker antsy—he’s got a bad track record with “forever.” The family screw-up became a screw-up famous rock star, and bottomed out fast. Now he’s putting his life back together, and the last person he wants to see is perfect Nichole. No matter how hot the fantasies he had about her growing up, Nichole is out of his league and he knows it. It’s just too bad they have so much chemistry. Because there’s no way the two of them could ever make it last…
Realistic and heartfelt, Nick of Time draws you deep into the lives of everyday people with real life problems.
Nichole has been burned by love. The man she wanted to spend her life with wants another man, leaving her at the altar. Heart hurting, Nichole's carefully constructed facade around her heart is crumbling. She just has to hold it together for her best friends wedding.
Trouble maker and rocker, Tucker, is trying to get his life and career back on track after his band split apart. The last thing he wants to do is face the perfection known as Nichole. Luck is not with Tucker because he is the best man for his brother wedding and Nichole just happens to be the maid of honor for her best friend…bringing them up close and personal.
The chemistry is explosive. Starting as anger and distrust, Hanson creatively transforms it into more.
I found this story magnetic. Hanson masterfully balances humor, heart and realism providing a story that sucks you right in.
Nick of Time was a brilliant contemporary romance that I flat out loved.
