Nicole by Sarah Monzon is the third book in the ‘Sewing In SoCal’ series and an adult romance set in a small town. The covers for all the three novels are very eye catching. The books can be read individually as well. I haven’t read the first two books in the series and this one went just fine.
We see Nicole who is a single mother and has recently separated from her husband. Her best friend and SoCal sisters are busy setting her up for online dates. Not to mention her winning personality (snort) and my curves-have-curves figure (eyeroll) don’t exactly attract the opposite sex.
After having failed dates with men, she is set on not to go on any from henceforth. Her daughter is set to play soccer with the boys team in the school. She comes across her daughter’s coach Dr. Drew Bauer. A charming and recently divorced too. He longs for cute kids but can’t have one due to cancer.
Now the book is really sweet and smooth going. But I would still rate it a 3.5 stars and not 4 because it was short. I wanted more. I felt rushed at times. Like how did Dr. Drew first meet Nicole on her date out of no where. Drew’s perspective wasn’t clear on many things.
I liked how we see Dr. Drew being very non stereotypical about Nicole, and Nicole being herself and totally loving who she is. The ending was also rushed. I would have liked to see more such conversations between her daughter and Drew. Her father’s side was also unclear. Overall a good one time read.
