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?
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
It is simple as this…Abby Jimenez’s name is on it, I’m going to read it. I fell in love with Abby’s books with her debut The Friend Zone and that love has only grown. For a long time The Happily Ever After Playlist was my favorite Abby book, but after reading Part of Your World, that has changed. With this book Abby has completely outdone herself. The story is perfect, the writing is awesome, and the swoon is hardcore. It was pure perfection.
Part of Your World feels like Schitt’s Creek in book form. It’s the story of Alexis, a sophisticated city-girl who’s very rich parents want her to become a world renowned surgeon like them and not stay the ER doctor she currently is. One night Alexis finds herself in need of help in a small. town and she meets Daniel, leaving her world forever changed. Daniel is 10 years younger than Alexis and as casual as can be. But as Alexis finds herself falling more and more for Daniel and the town he lives in she has to think about what that might mean. Are these people, her relationship with Daniel more important than her family, no matter how over bearing they can be?
You know you love a book when it takes a little over a day to read it and that is exactly what happened with Part of Your World. Abby created a story that, much like Alexis and Wakan, you can’t help what want to return to. Everything was done so perfectly it’s hard to pinpoint all that I loved about it. I loved Daniel. I loved Alexis. I loved Daniel and Alexis. I loved Wakan. I loved the people of Wakan. I loved it al so much that it really just feels like the most perfect book. Alexis had been through a lot and found a place she felt like she was herself, that she was out on the other side. Have I mentioned how much I loved it?
There really isn’t much more for me to say about Part of Your World other than you need this book. It blew me away and hopefully will do the same to you. Get a copy ordered today!
