Getting Her Groom by Heather Tullis
Angela Chestnut can’t wait to move to New York City to fulfill her dream on the stages of Broadway, but first she has to finish her last year of college. When a couple of the student stages are damaged in a flood, she moves the show she has to direct to a local community center in the hopes of raising enough funds that they’ll be able to keep their doors open. But someone wants The Center to fail, and if that means Angela’s show, and her final grade, have to fail as well, they’re totally okay with that.
Alex Checketts has had an unhealthy interest (in his opinion) in Angela, who is twelve years younger than himself, since they met at her sister’s place the previous summer. He finds himself roped into accompanying the musical she’s written for her project and gets caught up in the mystery behind who is trying to shut down the community center. His attraction to Angela only grows as they spend more time together and her interest in him isn’t helping his resolve not to date her.
Whether they’ll be able to make it work after she moved to New York worries them both. But first they have to survive to put on Angela’s show and save The Center.
My Review: 3 Stars
After 6 books our dear Alex gets his book! I was wondering if this would happen or if he would just be left hanging. I am glad that he got his HEA!
Angela is a lot younger than Alex but has had her eye on him since she spent the summer with Jonquil. Even though he ran out on their date she just can't get him out of her mind. Alex of course is stubborn because he sees Angela as being "too young" for him and refuses to turn into his father when it comes to women. He refuses to let himself fall for Angela but like all the other guys in this series.. he is a goner when it comes to the women. ;)
While I liked Getting Her Groom, I felt a little let down. There wasn't as much romance as the other books and Alex was stubborn for a lot of the book. I also didn't feel like there was much chemistry between Alex and Angela. While the mystery was pretty predictable again, it seemed to be one of the main focuses of the book. The other was Angela and Alex growing as individuals. It's kinda like their relationship was a side note while they worked more on themselves. And I have to say... I did not like the ending much. After 6 books it would have been nice to actually have an epilogue with where everyone was at after X amount of years. But this one? It just ended. And for those of you that know me... that is one of my biggest pet peeves. I need more... I need closure! Lol.
All in all it was a good series and I would read it again if I was in the mood. :) Heather Tullis has become one of my go to authors. Can't wait to read more of her books. :)
