I was gifted a copy of Flirting With Love from the Author in exchange for my honest review. Clara Stone has done it again! Although this is book #2 in the Lovelly series, it can be read as a stand alone.

Summary: “Hudson and Blake Lovelly lead a charmed life—successful careers, loving family, beautiful home. Now, on the eve of their daughter’s birth, they’re counting their blessings. Life wasn’t always so generous . . .”

The HOT Dr. Lovelly and his firecracker of a wife, Blake, are about to have a baby! What else is there to do during hours of labor other than reflect on what brought you together in the first place and the most important people in your life? We get a sneak peek inside Hudsons “privileged” adolescence and how meeting the charismatic prankster,  Blake, makes him realize that there is more to life than following in daddy’s footsteps. We learn how instead of making her angry and cynical,  the hardships that Blake faced growing up make her a compassionate and fiercely loyal friend.

Clara’s unique writing in this book has each chapter jumping between Hudson’s POV and Blakes POV as well as their past and present. It might sound like it is confusing, but it is skillfully done! She has given the reader perfect reflections into the past so as to understand the thoughts and feelings of Hudson and Blake in the present.

Find out for yourself what brought these two seamingly opposite people together and how their mutual friend will forever hold a place in their hearts.
