Title: Choosing Mr. Right (Mr. & Mrs. Right #1)
Author: Shade Rachea
Some love triangles are just nonexistent.
Being in love with your best friend has disaster written all over it, but Reese Michaels can’t help it. He’s everything she thinks she wants, never mind the fact that he’s given no sign the feelings are mutual. After a chance meeting with Alex, the hot new bookstore owner, Reese’s life and plans are shaken up. Her best friend disappears without a goodbye and all too soon she finds herself in a new relationship with Alex. He drives her crazy, zapping all of her control with his persistence, but she can’t resist him. Before he came along, she didn’t know what it meant to be chased and pursued. But is that enough to risk her heart for someone new or will she choose the one she’s always wanted?
Alex knows unrequited love all too well. Having been single for the last two years after a nasty break up, he’s ready to jump back into dating now that he’s met Reese. Or so he thinks. The girl is crazy but honest and he loves that. Only problem is, she’s hung up on her best friend. Having done the whole unrequited love thing before, Alex must decide if Reese is worth the risk and if chasing her will end with her in his arms. Can he convince her that he’s Mr. Right and she’s been chasing Mr. Wrong all along? Or will his own past catch up to them, ruining what could be?
Unrequited love is something that we’ve all dealt with at least one time in our lives. In Choosing Mr. Right, Alex and Reese are likable characters with a very realistic relationship formed over Reese’s unrequited crush on her best friend. I don’t read romances often, but I found this one to be sweet in the end, and the book delivered everything I thought it would when I picked it up. Love triangles can be messy, but Shade Rachea’s version is a must read indeed.
