Surprised by Love by Julie Lessman
From the publisher:
Shy and unattractive as a child, Megan McClare has always been teased by her classmates. But when she returns home from her senior year in Paris, the wallflower has suddenly blossomed into a beauty. With ambitions to become a lawyer or doctor, Megan accepts an internship at the district attorney's office only to discover that she will be working with Devin Caldwell, a boy who mercilessly mocked her at school--and with whom she was hopelessly enamored. She turns to her dear friend Bram Hughes for support and advice. But Bram's vision is clouded by his sudden unwelcome attraction to a girl he had always thought of as a kid sister. He advises forgiveness, but can he forgive himself for pushing the woman he loves into the arms of another man?
Fan favorite Julie Lessman draws a romantic triangle that will have readers in a tizzy in this glittering Gilded Age tale of transforming love.
If you are a Julie Lessman fan this book will not disappoint you! You will find yourself immersed in San Francisco and the lives of the McClares and their friends.
This is the third book in the Heart of San Francisco series. Readers who have not read the first two books will feel somewhat lost in the beginning of this book with all the characters and the inside stories. So I recommend reading the other two books first.
Julie Lessman writes a passionate romance for her readers. This book is not just about Meg and Bram's romance but also is the conclusion for Logan and Cait's romance. There are love triangles and struggles galore and this will keep readers turning the pages to find out more.
I did enjoy that Julie Lessman does include faith through out the book as the different characters must take their desires and wills to God and let Him direct things.
I received this book free from Revell Reads in exchange for my honest review.
