Post a Comment. Now, she tackles an issue every woman deals with: Emerson, Georgia, and Marley have been best friends ever since they met at a weight-loss camp as teens. When Emerson tragically passes away, she leaves one final wish for her best friends: For each of them, that means something different. For Marley, it's coming to terms with the survivor's guilt she's carried around since her twin sister's death, which has left her blind to the real chance for romance in her life. For Georgia, it's about learning to stop trying to live up to her mother's and brother's ridiculous standards, and learning to accept the love her ex-husband has tried to give her.
And I cannot wait. Knows what he's doing," her cousin continued, squinting appreciatively as she took a long drag on her cigarette, her face contouring into a sea of wrinkles. Nawt him. Makes me crazy. Maybe you should get going. Um, traffic and all that.
That fabled traffic of Gideon's Cove, Maine, where once in a while you had to wait four or five seconds to make a left-hand turn onto Elm Street. And thanks. I'm off to have my orgasms. She went blithely into the house. James continued jamming the crowbar under the shingles, relishing the screech as they tore off. Then her words sank in. She couldn't swim in Maine water. It was practically ice-cold. Fifty-two, fifty-five degrees?
It was high tide, too, so it'd be even colder. The the door opened, and he forgot what he was there for. She was wearing a bikini. His mouth opened, but no sound came out. There was a lot of skin. His mouth went dry. She gave him an odd look, the scooped up her hair and secured it with an elastic, and his eyes slid down to her rack, because my God, that was a fantastic- "I know. I've gained eleven pounds this past year. Maybe I can swim some off. Come on, Beauty.
Her ass was And that scrap of fabric-red fabric- thank you, Jesus. Hard to believe she'd kissed him once, and speaking of hard, she was so beautiful and perfect and luscious, bad enough that he'd had to listen to her shower every morning, and- But wait, wait, wait.
She couldn't swim in that water. Lucy looked at her hand for a minute, and twisted her wedding ring. And sometimes, it's easier to grab hold of an excuse, because really going for it, putting yourself out there You know that.
You saw me through that last year. Loving someone can be terrifying. Please, please give this a read if you like Contemporary Romance. You'll find yourself smiling and laughing throughout the story. It's that good. Brava, Ms. And thank you for making my heart smile with this story.
It is such delight. Couldn't finish this one Feb 06, willaful rated it liked it Recommends it for: The first of Higgins' books with recurring characters is follow-up to two others, one of which is my highest rated book by her Catch of the Day and one of which I couldn't finish The Next Best Thing.
Somebody to Love doesn't hit either of these extremes. It's very readable and has its share of humor and romance, but compared to some of Higgins' other work, it was a little lacking.
Parker who had a child with the hero of The Next Best Thing is hit with a bombshell: Since Parker donates the money she earns from writing gawdawful children's books to charity, all she has left is a home in Maine that she's never seen.
While her son is vacationing with his father, Parker sets out to renovate and sell the wreck of a house, which is in the friendly town of Gideon's Cove home of Maggie and Malone from Catch of the Day. Help comes in the form of her father's lawyer James, known to Parker incessantly as "Thing One. Parker seemed very sensible and likable in The Next Best Thing , so I was surprised to find her an inconsistent and occasionally obnoxious character.
Sometimes she's an upper crust ice princess, other times she's a fluffy chicklit nitwit, and the most essential aspect of her character in terms of the plot is that she's very, very good at holding a grudge.
James, a warm and generous man who hides a lot of pain behind a facade of success, is much more appealing; if he has a flaw it's that he puts up with too much crap from Parker.
Somebody to Love runs a lot on repeated themes. Some of these are funny, like the ludicrous children's books Parker writes in her head when upsetting things happen to her: He asked his mommy, 'Does God still love me, even though I eat the other fishies? We have the warm fuzzles!
This was fun, but other repetitions, like "Thing One" and the references to "Lady Land" -- a catch-all phrase for Parker's tingly bits -- got pretty old. Overall, it was an entertaining book, without having much bite or depth. I felt like Higgins was playing it safe in this one -- though considering I DNF'd her most thematically challenging book, I can hardly blame her. View all 8 comments.
Apr 27, Jenice rated it liked it Shelves: Okay, so Kristin Higgins isn't Shakespeare, but if you are looking for a fun, sweet, g-rated romance difficult to find in the romance genre, trust me on this she is your girl. You will fall in love with her hero's and heroine's while watching them fall in love. Their friends are people you want to have as friends. Their families are a bit kooky, who doesn't have a few kooky family members maybe you are the kooky family member?
And you always ge "The course of true love never did run smooth". And you always get the required corny grand gesture that all chick-lit must have. This one is a little less comedic than the others. Her character's a little more damaged, which, in my humble opinion, makes them even easier to love.
Do I want to feast on romantic novels? But, when I need a treat, when I want to find a beach read, when I want to have a little vacation from life and just feel good, Kristin Higgins does not disappoint me.
Apr 01, Steph Su rated it really liked it Shelves: Parker is a sensible, unspoiled, caring, actually desirable female! James is… Thing One. The wit and humor is as good as ever. With each book of hers, Higgins moves more and more away from her old formula for romance to explore refreshing new situations and characters.
Loved it! View all 3 comments.
Jul 05, Julie rated it really liked it Shelves: This book was released in I received a copy of this book from the publisher and Edelweiss for an honest review. This is a follow up the novel "The Next Best Thing". This book can be read as a stand alone, however. Parker is a single mom to five year old Nicky. She writes children's books for charity.
She's a little burned out on the series and is ready to try something else. She has never had to worry about money. But, when her father, Harry, is turned in for insider trading, she finds out she is broke.
No trust fund for her or Nicky, no home, no job. The only thing she has is a cottage on the Maine coast. So, with Nicky's father, Ethan, taking him on a vacation for a few weeks, Parker heads off to Maine hoping to 'flip' the cottage and make enough money for her and Nicky to have a fresh start.
When Parker finds the cottage, it's a shock. The house is about to fall down and is pretty much just a shack. Parker doesn't know if she has the money to fix it up. Then her father's attorney, James, arrives offering her help getting the house in shape.
Her best friend's advice about having a summer fling keeps coming to mind more and more and James appears to be game. James has been Harry's attorney and friend for good while. He and Parker have had a few moments between them, but Parker made it clear that there wouldn't be more. James really wants to have a relationship with Parker, but he is holding on to an explosive secret. If Parker were to find out about it, it would ruin his chances with her.
Not only that, James has a very difficult family life. Another thing he is very secretive about. Parker also has a lot on her plate. Her mother is oft married and lives off her many marriages to wealthy men. Parker and her father do not like each other very much. James has often wondered what came between them. As work on the house gets started, James and Parker grow closer. But, Parker is worried about her son and all the sudden changes in his life.
Would her having a relationship be too much for Nicky? Not only that James and Nicky seem to clash. Parker handles the turn her life has taken with courage and strength.
Her thoughts are often hilarious. She is a good mom and puts Nicky's well being first.
But, doesn't Parker deserve some happiness too? Both Parker and James will have to learn to come to terms with their family issues and the differences and misunderstandings between them before they can hope to have a future.

The road is a little rocky, but this was one of the sweetest HEA endings I've ever read. A Solid A. Aug 18, Searock rated it liked it. It was enjoyable enough to keep reading to the end, but never became a special snowflake. It had all the right pieces. It all fit together. It was well written. But for some reason, I felt as though I could see the author sitting at the keyboard writing it the whole time I was reading.
First of all, thank you, Melissa for reading and reviewing Kristan Higgins' books. Usually after reading your reviews, I'll get the books and find myself in awe with them. If I am not mistaken, you read the second book of the series, hence I got it as well but the third book intrigued me even more so I decided to read it first. What I loved about this book, let's start with Z Parker[h] referred James[H] as Thing 1.

Parker and James, their scenes together especially when they acknowledged their feelings towards each other were truly magnificent, I kept on rereading, highlight and stroking the words[hmm, that's kinda weird] w.
Her scene with the law, that was pretty funny. Nick, Parker's son and his nail gun obsession. James admitted that he was not a fan of kids. When Nick returned to his mother, it was really good to see that James and Nick did not bond immediately, they took their own sweet time to do that.
The townsfolks, fantastic people, Err they kept using the word "Ayuh". Can anyone help me with the meaning coz in Malay, Ayuh means c'mon. I'm eyeing the rotten eggs and tomatoes, Okay2 I'm stepping down and passing the mic to the next person that will convince you to read this book. Jan 15, Mela rated it really liked it Shelves: It had many strong points, first of all well chosen characters and humor - as it is in all Higgins' novels.
I am afraid, though, that readers who haven't read first two part of the series can lost a bit of charm of this one. I have read them all and now, I want to read the first part again. I give it three stars for joy from reading this story as a standalone plus one star for Gideon's Cove atmosphere ;-. May 16, Keertana rated it liked it. Somebody to Love veers away from the typical Kristan Higgins path - which is both a good and a bad thing.
On one hand, it's refreshing to have a protagonist who is a single mom by choice, not by circumstance; who isn't actively pining and seeking her Mr. Right; whose is perfectly happy with her life the way it is. And yet, Parker, the heroine of our tale, is rich. Very rich. In fact, she writes best-selling stories for children and gives all the proceeds to charity because she doesn't need the m Somebody to Love veers away from the typical Kristan Higgins path - which is both a good and a bad thing.
In fact, she writes best-selling stories for children and gives all the proceeds to charity because she doesn't need the money. As such, when her father loses all of his - and therefore her and her son's - money, she is forced to spend the summer in Gideon Cove fixing up the shack her aunt left for her and hopefully selling it so she and her son can find a place to live. Into this mix enter James. Or Thing One. James is Parker's father's lawyer, Harry, and as he listens to his boss, Parker is unable to see him as much more than a minion of the father who has never had any time for her.
James and Parker have a past, though, one that finds the time to catch up with them when James is sent to help Parker settle into Gideon Cove. Needless to say, with a hot summer, cool water, and past memories, the sparks are sure to fly.
Quite simply, my issue with Somebody to Love is the fact that Kristan Higgins wrote this on a beach with many half-naked men who had great abs.
While Parker and James are well-developed, interesting, and mature characters on their own, their romantic development consists of ogling. Which is all fine and dandy the first or even the second time, but after a while even I got tired of reading about the fine and sweaty abs this lawyer had.
Why does he have abs? Is he benching his law books or something? While Higgins makes you realize why this couple will work for each other, there's a lot of filler tension and drama that does little or nothing for the plot. Also, James is not the most stunning of heroes.
Okay, backtrack, I don't mean his abs aren't stunning, because I'm sure they are, but compared to the past Higgins heroes, he simply isn't as memorable. I've come to expect vivacious and different characters from Higgins but Parker and James are characters you can find in any romance. Nevertheless, this was still a solid and engaging read. There are plenty of wonderful moments, forged friendships, and there's nothing quite like Gideon Cove.
Also, Malone comes back to steal the show - so much so that you're wondering to yourself, "James who? Abs what? Additionally, Higgins's trademark humor is still present and the inclusion of Parker's son, Nicky, was adorable and the moments with him were heartfelt.
Higgins captured the mother-son bond in this perfectly, both the actual affection and also the complications of being a single mother and dating someone new. All in all, Somebody to Love is a quick summer romance, perfect for the weather these days and sure to delight. Just don't expect the same caliber of the first Gideon Cove novel going in.
Dec 25, Keri rated it really liked it Shelves: This was really 3. I will try and put to epaper my thoughts about this book. This is probably going to come off more as a rant than a review.
I thought she was extremely narrow- minded and cold. I fell in love with James from the first and knew that there was a lot more to him that we knew. I couldn't This was really 3. I couldn't get his attraction to Parker from the first. Even having discovered what the big "deal" was, I still thought that Parker was immature about it. One big thing that bugged me further was the use of Lady land There were no love scenes, we were led in with a kiss and the next chapter we woke up and boy did we have amazing sex.
I wouldn't know, I didn't get any details, you just told me they did. Referring to James to Thing One was demeaning and it got old really fast and only backed up Parker's immaturity at times. She was older than James, but she didn't act like it. Her dad was a jerk and so was his dad and brothers.
One refreshing thing was that we were in James's head a bit more than normal for a KH. Once we got his backstory he was even more wonderful as a person and Parker should have got down and groveled at his feet once she got it. We did get a small grovel, but not enough IMO for what she put him through. What I did love is that I got to read more about my Malone. We get to see him and Maggie get married. That is ok; I am going to allow this just until I can dump my old man and go claim him for myself.
A man has needs I dig it, she can be his foot warmer until I can get there. Diabetics beware the epilogue is super sweet and may put you into sugar shock. Not sure why we had that length on the time, but I guess to allow for what was in the epilogue we needed that. I didn't hate the book, after all I read it in one sitting in a matter of hours, it just wasn't one of my favs. That is my rant and I am sticking to it. Feb 16, Bekah rated it liked it Shelves: This book is incredibly sweet and romantic.
There are achingly sweet moments of tender love all throughout this book. I laughed and I cried. It was quite a great ride. The best thing about this book: James Cahill. I just love a hero who is quite literally ruined for anyone but the heroine. The way he loved Parker was just perfect, and the way that Kristan Higgins described him was utterly delish! I loved how perfect he was. I know some readers have problems with ultra perfect heroes out there, a This book is incredibly sweet and romantic.
I know some readers have problems with ultra perfect heroes out there, as if they don't exist. But I truly believe that real life perfect heroes exist out there, and so it's a great joy to read about them every once in awhile.
My complaints about this book, first and foremost, there was lots of yummy tension and chemistry between Parker and James, but absolutely NO sex scenes. We got the totally disappointing fade out when things got yummy with a neat and tidy little summary. Now this is my first Krisan Higgins so I don't know if that is the norm, but for all of you first timers out there, be forewarned: My other complaint is just a personal pet peeve; I'm not overly fond of books that overdo the humor with characters.
I don't think you need to be constantly saying some funny little line on every page or during every conversation. I get some people are actually like that, but I find those kinds of people annoying. I think quality over quantity with humor. Timing is key, quite essential really. I got really tired of hearing about "Lady Land" Other than those two things, I did really enjoy this book.
Kristan Higgins has quite a talent for writing super sweet and romantic fun books. If that's what you're looking for, today's your lucky day! Pick this book up and enjoy! We volgen Parker Harrington Welles, een jonge alleenstaande moeder die ondanks het feit dat ze in een gigantisch landhuis woont niet naast haar schoenen loopt.
Meer zelfs de opbrengst van haar boeken die gigantisch veel succes hebben heeft ze volledig aan een goed doel geschonken. Diezelfde boeken kan ze zelf niet uitstaan en dat de stroperig zoete personages haar in gedachten toespreken maakt haar helemaal gek.
Nu ja, wanneer je in je gedachten gesprekken voert met fictieve personages hoor je v We volgen Parker Harrington Welles, een jonge alleenstaande moeder die ondanks het feit dat ze in een gigantisch landhuis woont niet naast haar schoenen loopt.
In werkelijkheid is het waarschijnlijk niet altijd even makkelijk om zo goed met elkaar overeen te blijven komen wanneer een relatie ten einde loopt maar zij doen het dus wel. Meer zelfs … zijn nieuwe vriendin is haar beste vriendin. Gelukkig maar dat ze hen heeft want haar familie is dan weer iets minder interessant. De rest van haar familie is trouwens niet veel beter, je hebt alleszins meer kans op een warm onthaal bij The Addams Family.

Dec 04, Pamela AllHoney rated it really liked it Shelves: I found this at a rummage sale for 50 cents. I had read a few of Kristan Higgins and thought I'd try another. Anyway, Parker Welles is visited by her father and learns she is essentially broke and her father has loss the family's entire fortune, including her and her son's. Her only option now was to go to Maine and renovate a house she inherited.
James Cahill, her father's lawyer, joins her to help. This was written in third person. Unlike the other books I've read of hers that was done in first I found this at a rummage sale for 50 cents. Unlike the other books I've read of hers that was done in first person. It connects to other books through characters but is listed as a stand-alone. The story itself is definitely stand-alone. It was nice. Not WOW but nice. It had some cute, witty parts and kept at a nice pace. I think Contemporary Romance lovers will like it.
Dec 16, Shawna rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is my favorite KH read! The romance in this was more prevalent than in some of her other books, and the epilogue was fantastic and sigh-worthy.
Single mum and part-time children's author, Parker Welles and her 5 year tyke have hitherto lived a very comfortable life, their futures secured with loaded trust funds courtesy of her father's business acumen, until said acumen turned to insider trading and their fortune came crashing down on them.
She is now suddenly responsible for securing the financial future for herself and her son and it definitely doesn't help that she's got a writer's block and and her father's lawyer minion, Thing One aka the delectable but annoying James Cahill, appear once more unwelcomingly to witness her misfortune.
Parker's resentment of James runs deep, for he has insinuated himself into his father's life to be his right-hand man, to have gained his attention and even affection that she herself has been deprived of for so many years.
James has represented her father not just at business meeting but at many family functions, each occasion only serves to fuel Parker's anger further as it is another reminder of her father's emotional neglect.
While Parker stews in her antagonism towards James, he has his own strong emotions to deal with when it comes to Parker. Suffering a case of love at first sight, each spiteful comment from her finds its mark over the years, although he would never be so crass as to wear his heart on his sleeve.
Such weakness wouldn't do in the cutthroat business world nor in the upper class milieu they frequented. They slowly get to know each others while renovating an old house, Parker inherited from a maternal aunt.
Barriers erected get removed one by one and past prejudices are replaced by new favourable impressions as they tentatively form a friendship of sorts. Not all their past experiences were antagonistic though, because there was one night of wild passion a few years ago both have a hard time erasing from their memories and boy do they long for another such night. This another very solidly entertaining book from KH.
Her characters are always likeable, the banter is great and the secondary characters esp the outrageous Cousin Livinia are quite delightful. A few quibbles such as why her father would hire a new unproven law school graduate did not detract from the pleasant overall reading experience. James did manage the scene with his ex quite poorly, and he could be less appreciative of the physical endowments of his past lovers, although I get that they were more from an aesthetic point of view rather than a sexual appreciation.
I started writing romance novels when my kids were little. I love to write books about relationships, since the search for love and security is one of the driving forces of life. My characters are regular people, folks like us, and I hope to give them a big, memorable love story rich with family, pets, food and laughter.
I suffer from chronic bedhead and an unhealthy and completely understandable obsession with Derek Jeter, shortstop for the New York Yankees. We spend as much time as possible at our family home on Cape Cod, swimming in the Atlantic, shivering on the beach, swatting horseflies and watching fish evade my lure at Higgins Pond.
