Book Review: February or Forever - Juliet Madison

February or Forever

The blurb.
In this heartwarming coastal romance, Escape bestselling author Juliet Madison asks, what if your favourite celebrity fell in love with you?

Yoga teacher and single mother, Chrissie Burns has a plan: move into the rundown beach house left to her by her deceased aunt, renovate it, sell it, and move on. The scene of a terrible accident years ago, the house needs to get out of Chrissie's hands as soon as possible. 

But Tarrin's Bay, where the house stands, has more to offer than bad memories. The town is lovely, the people friendly, and even Chrissie's young son finds friends and begins coming out of his shell. Employed at Serendipity Retreat as a yoga instructor, Chrissie is shocked to be given the role of private teacher to Drew Williams, Australia’s top singer/songwriter for the month. 

Relationships between instructors and clients are strictly forbidden, but Drew draws happiness out of Chrissie with his down-to-earth nature and sense of humour. Days of stretching and bending may bring Chrissie unexpected peace and strength, but she knows that this interlude must end, and there's no pose or position to aid her when Drew walks away and leaves her broken-hearted.

My opinion.
I absolutely loved this book! The flirty cover immediately caught my eye and the book was every bit as fun as I thought it would be. 
Chrissie is in a difficult place when she meets Drew. She just moved to a place that holds some very painful memories, she's trying to raise her son by herself and she's just starting out at a new job while still battling her past. She may not want to share her personal life with her V.I.P. client, but Drew sees through her, and thankfully he takes the time to get to know her... and Chrissie starts opening up.

I really liked how he never played the celebrity card, not once. From the very first moment he's nothing but himself. He's gentle and generous, romantic, sexy, cute,... Yes, I'm having a book crush. Laugh now, but you'll fall for him too!

One of my all time favorite book scenes must be the Dirty Dancing scene. Brilliant, absolutely brilliant!

Will February bring piece for Drew and closure for Chrissie? 

February or Forever is a fun, heartwarming story that will stay with me for a long time to come. It left me smiling at my eReader, making "woop" sounds all the way through and of course, made me cry. It's a modern day fairy tale about a girl meeting her celebrity crush.. except that it's nothing like that. And it's why I loved this book so much.

This was my first time reading a book by Juliet Madison.. it will NOT be my last! Absolutely loved it.

Don't miss it!
