Title: It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time
Author: Kylie Scott
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 7th, 2018
Returning home for her father’s wedding was never going to be easy for Adele. If being sent away at eighteen hadn’t been bad enough, the mess she left behind when she made a pass at her dad’s business partner sure was. Fifteen years older than her, Pete had been her crush for as long as she could remember. But she’d misread the situation—confusing friendliness for undying love. Awkward. Add her father to the misunderstanding, and Pete was left with a broken nose and a business on the edge of ruin. The man had to be just as glad as everyone else when she left town. Seven years later, things are different. Adele is no longer a kid, but a fully grown adult more than capable of getting through the wedding and being polite. But all it takes is seeing him again to bring back those old feelings. Sometimes first loves are the truest.
I've always been a huge fan of Kylie Scott and all of her books. I've never met one that I didn't fall head over heels in love with. She writes some of the most drool worthy men there are. (and people ask me why I'm single) Cause no man can live up to the expectation of the perfect book boyfriends and Scott writes some of the best.
I went into It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time not knowing much about the book and when I found out about the huge age gap between the main characters, I can admit that I wasn't sure if I was going to like this book. Previous books I've read with a huge age gap between the characters, I haven't much enjoyed because of the way the story is written, it makes it seem very unbelievable. But I can say with a smile on my face that I enjoyed this one so much.
I found their story to be very different and refreshing. And I ate it up. Adele has always been in love with Pete but after one fateful night, she finds out the hard way he doesn't feel the same about her. And he's fifteen years older than her and works for her father. Now she's back home seven years later to attend her father's wedding and she's staying with the man himself...Pete. She knows things between them will never be the same but she misses their friendship. And how they used to talk for hours about everything.
Pete is realizing that Adele is not a little girl anymore but it's hard for him to move past what happened seven years ago. She's his best friends/business partners daughter and fifteen years younger than him. There is no place for romance. But Pete has become bitter toward her and tries to avoid her at all cost.
Adele thought she was over Pete but after seeing him again, all those memories come rushing back to her but she knows he will never feel the same about her. Or so she thinks.
I really enjoyed their story and could have read a ton more. I hope you enjoy Pete's and Adele's story as much as I did.
