Review of "True to You" by Becky Wade

This book is the first in the Bradford Sisters series, new from author Becky Wade. I have to say that I'm almost sorry I read this now, because I can't stand the fact that I will have to wait who-knows-how-long for the next two. :/

Middle sister Nora Bradford was engaged to a childhood friend, and then one day, she was not. Since then (several years ago) she has chosen to focus on her work, her family, and a fairytale world of books and a BBC television series - but she has completely closed herself off to the possibility of romantic happiness. She is certain that things are just fine this way, and tells herself that she is content. For the most part she is successful and really believes it, until she meets......

...former Navy SEAL John Lawson. Retired from the Navy, he owns an emergency training company, is a real-life successful hero, and has known for years that he was adopted. However, he has recently been diagnosed with an inherited condition. When John reaches out to Nora for her research experience, an instant connection is formed.

I can't count the number LOL's or satisfied sighs I experienced reading this book. I have no idea how many sweet moments (all without being cheesy, predictable, or over the top) this book has. All I can say is that it was real, interesting, funny, touching, hit appropriate emotional points, the pacing was perfect, it made me think, and truly, the characters only charmed - never frustrated or annoyed me. Nora is incredibly likeable, as are her sisters, so really, I can't wait another second for the next installment. Please hurry, Becky. :)
