Leah McHale is a wedding photographer who does believe in happy ever after, however it and the right man seems to elude her.
Jason Rhodes is also a photographer who due to his childhood and past is a man that finds it difficult to believe in the happy ever after for him because no one had believed in him his entire life.
Leah and Jason’s story is second chance romance story after the misunderstanding that left Leah storming off and left Jason heartbroken an year ago. They were both hurt by how the other person acted because while they didn’t voice their feelings to each other when they were together, at the time thought they had finally found the right person. Now both are working at a wedding together and the sparks seems to fly again along with strong emotions, making them difficult to keep their eyes and hands off each other.
Quibbles: The what actually happened or who was the other woman bit was predictable and I guess I expected more from the author because it kind made the hero look in the negative light because he didn’t try to explain when he could have. The story is also quite short and I felt it could used just a bit more because the length affected my attachment/connection to the characters and the characters development in the story.
Nevertheless I’m looking for the this series because one of very early forays into the world of romance involved a wedding planners series as well. Overall, Leah and Jason is a short fun story and makes good for some light reading with a happy ever after at the end.
