The New York Times bestselling author of Life's Too Short delivers a refreshingly modern fairy tale perfect for fans of Casey McQuiston and Emily Henry.
After a wild bet, gourmet grilled-cheese sandwich, and cuddle with a baby goat, Alexis Montgomery has had her world turned upside down. The cause: Daniel Grant, a ridiculously hot carpenter who’s ten years younger than her and as casual as they come—the complete opposite of sophisticated city-girl Alexis. And yet their chemistry is undeniable.
While her ultra-wealthy parents want her to carry on the family legacy of world-renowned surgeons, Alexis doesn’t need glory or fame. She’s fine with being a “mere” ER doctor. And every minute she spends with Daniel and the tight-knit town where he lives, she’s discovering just what’s really important. Yet letting their relationship become anything more than a short-term fling would mean turning her back on her family and giving up the opportunity to help thousands of people.
Bringing Daniel into her world is impossible, and yet she can’t just give up the joy she’s found with him either. With so many differences between them, how can Alexis possibly choose between her world and his?
The barriers just might be insurmountable for Alexis Montgomery and Daniel Grant. While it is true that they enjoyed a one-night-stand, their future together seems very unlikely. For one thing, Daniel is 10 years younger than Alexis. Then there is the fact that he is a carpenter and she comes from a rich family who has a lot of clout in the medical community. In fact, just about everybody in her family for the past 125 years has been a surgeon. However, Alexis took her own path and became an emergency room doctor.
If the age difference wasn’t enough, sadly, the class difference that exists between Alexis and Daniel is one that does not seem even possible to overcome. However, they are very, very much drawn to one another and Alexis spends as much time in Daniel’s town of Wakan as she can. Not only does Daniel accept her, but the members of this sweet town do as well. Will Alexis be able to remove the barriers between them? What about Daniel? Could he live in Alexis‘s world?
Part of Your World was a wonderfully sweet and tender love story between two people who just had to be together even though it seemed very unlikely. Abby Jimenez did a stellar job bringing these characters to life. The drama between them resulted in a warm ending that gave these two the happily ever after they deserve.
Many thanks to Forever and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
