Giveaway & Review BAREFOOT IN THE RAIN by ROXANNE ST. CLAIRE @ForeverRomance


Book Description

October 30, 2012 Barefoot Bay (Book 2)

They say you can never go home again . . .

When "Life Coach to the Stars" Jocelyn Bloom is embroiled in scandal, the only place she can hide is the one place she wishes she could forget. She left Barefoot Bay-and the boy next door who knew all her secrets-years ago. Now nothing about the tiny island off the coast of Florida is quite how she remembers it, especially Will Palmer. He's even more gorgeous and tempting . . . and still capable of turning her world inside out.

But what if someone is waiting for you?

To Will Palmer, Guy Bloom is more than the elderly, senile neighbor he looks after-he's the last connection to Jocelyn, the woman Will loved and lost. But the reunion with Jocelyn doesn't go smoothly. Shocked by the change in her father's personality, Jocelyn struggles to reconcile her dark childhood with the sweet, confused man who has grown close to Will. Jocelyn has guided countless clients to happiness-but can she escape the rainy days of her past for a new sunny future with Will?

MY THOUGHTS
LOVED IT

Jocelyn had a glamorous life in Hollywood until a scandal sends her back home to Mimosa Key where she had previously escaped an abusive life.  Her best friend and neighbor Will, finds himself back there as well, unable to continue on as a pro baseball player.  As she reconnects with old friends, including her ex, who would like not to be her ex, she feels sparks with Will and the two have some very sweet moments as the story progresses. I was definitely rooting for Jocelyn and Will to have a true chance at love and a romance with each other.  Sigh, they just seem so well suited. 

This is a very wonderful contemporary romance that recreates the fakeness of Hollywood since Jocelyn is accused of breaking up a couple of stars and she just can't take the media glare.  I really felt for her there.  Of course, her ex, didn't seem so bad at first, but as that story unraveled you could see exactly how bad he was for her and how he kept her from discovering Will and their mutual feelings.  Also, Jocelyn is shocked that she finds Will taking care of her father, now suffering from Alzheimer's, and his abuse was one of the main reasons she left home. As Jocelyn reconciles her feelings for her father, it frees her up to reconnect with Will on an even deeper level.
