I didn't The way Brian is portrayed all the injured hurting holding back parts of him seems absolutely sincere even before we get to a reason I like Brian Before we know anything about him I just really liked him through their conversations his sincerity his honest desire for Carrie all that makes me feel like I'm rooting for a guy who is not your typical asshole looking for a reason not to commit He is a complicated sweet loveable man and I loved both of them so much His story is heartbreaking and their love is complicated and well earned Highly recommended for a uick light read to brighten your day

The Story GuyIn this eBook original novella Mary Ann Rivers introduces a soulful and sexy tale of courage sacrifice and love I will meet you on Wednesdays at noon in Celebration Park Kissing onlyCarrie West is happy with her life isn’t she? But when she sees this provocative online ad the thirtysomething librarian can’t help but be At thirty though Carrie's feeling comfortable with her life happy in her job as a librarian she also feels she's lacking something Scanning the personals she comes across an intriguing ad from a guy who wants to meet up on Wednesdays in the park promising kissing onlyAs a work of general fiction this reads very well As a romance not so much The premise of two people meeting for kissing only on a Wednesday lunch hour sounded somewhat odd and desperate but interesting enough And different I like differentSimilar in many ways to Ruthie Knox's Big Boy it lacked the pull and sexual tension that Big Boy offered The emotional angst that Brian feels is written very well but I couldn't help but also feel that he should havecould have asked for help Deliberately taking on the care and shouldering the burden alone and in the process isolating himself from any help or pleasure in life seemed a little extreme and masochistic Now I don't have to have my heroes all alpha I like a bit of mix in my heroes but Brian came off a little too beta And Carrie comes off as a chaser desperate for the relationship to continue and advanceThe writing is lovely The story engrossing The kissingsex scenes steamyBottom line I enjoyed this author's writing and the story And I'll definitely read her next novel However the romance here didn't work for me Other readers may well enjoy this it's rating very highly and for only 099 it's certainly worth the read Steam 35
