Where Their Hearts Collide (Wardham #2) by Zoe York

Where Their Hearts Collide (Wardham, #2)
Karen’s finally decided what she wants to do when she grows up. Too bad it’ll mean leaving behind her new neighbour, who’s stirred up a different kind of grown up feelings. But when he rebuffs her attempt to have a fling before she leaves Wardham, Karen knows it's for the best. A clean break, no messy emotional entanglements.

Intense and private, Paul has recently moved to Wardham for a more family friendly job, leaving behind a career as a homicide detective in the city. He only has his ten year old daughter a few nights a week, and he doesn’t want any distractions or drama while he tries to repair their relationship.

But Karen is right next door, and everywhere he goes. His resolve to keep his distance only lasts until she needs a true friend in her corner, and he realizes he can’t imagine life without her.

I absolutely loved the first novel in the Wardham series What Once was Perfect so when this one was put on NetGalley I requested it right away. Unfortunately I didn't get to it until the beginning of this year and it was an amazing start to the reading year.
As with the first book in the series I was able to read Where Their Hearts Collide in one sitting on a gloriously lazy day curled up on the couch with a blanket. I just loved Karen and Paul's romance. Karen is one of the most likable romance heroines I've ever come across. She's sweet, loving and she isn't afraid to tell Paul what she wants. Paul, is the older man, with one failed marriage, one adorable daughter and some issues he has to work through because he's so not ready for love again until he moves in next door to Karen.
I think the main reason that I loved this story (as well as the first book) is because of how real Zoe York's characters are. She makes her romances completely and utterly believable and I think that's amazing. The characters are perfectly un-perfect with flaws like real people and the romance isn't corny at all. Plus Zoe is awesome when it comes to the naughty bits of her novels and the plots aren't forced. Karen and Paul were lovely together and I really like how their romance came about. It was slow building but wonderful to read about and I wouldn't change a single thing about Where Their Hearts Collide. It will make you laugh and put you in a good mood after reading and maybe, make you believe in love again if you ever stopped.
Overall, this was a fantastic read and I can't recommend it and the first book in the series enough. If you love light romances with steamy scenes, a small town atmosphere and realistic characters Zoe York is the lady whose books you want to read.

  3. Oop didn't even need to read past "most likable heroine" you so have me right then and there. I have a hard time with heroines so finding one with that kind of endorsement. I'm in!

    1. I have a hard time with heroines to so Karen was a definite gem. Lacey, the main character from book one is a bit snobby in the beginning but I loved her too. I hope you like them Anna :)
