Blurb (as on Goodreads):
Sitting down at the wrong table in a bar turned my life upside down.
I was supposed to be on a date with one man but made a huge mistake. A mistake I keep bumping into all over New York City.
Clark is arrogant, straightforward and takes what he wants. And right now his sight is set on me.
But he’s proposing friends with benefits.
And I’d rather eat dirt than agree to that.
After an “enough is enough” moment, I turned to the Universe for help & asked for a special sign.
And it’s just my luck … looks like rabbits & romance really do mix!
The first book of “The Signs” Series, Fortunate Encounters is a romantic comedy with a sassy protagonist and a charming guy.
Juliette goes on a date and ends up sitting at the wrong table. That’s when she meets the guy he can’t keep her mind off- Clark.
Juliette is your average confused, somewhat annoying, over-thinking and believe-in-morals sort of gal. So when she agrees to be “Friends with Benefits” with Clark, she is naturally way out of comfort zone.
Clark, another average super-rich, gets his way around, and no relationships guy. But he finds himself strangely attracted to Juliette and that’s when the chasing and ignoring game stars.
What I Liked: Juliette’s character has been well written. The plot is simple with a lot of people throwing in views here and there. The other characters, however, have very little screen time, focussing solely on Juliette and her guy. The sex scenes are kept short and a there is a lot of sweet romance going on. The plot is great btw, a classic Romantic Comedy.
What I didn’t like: The sex scenes are repetitive, just the surface on which they have sex is different. I think I needed more Clark but his point of view has not been explored much.
Overall, Fortunate Encounters kept me upbeat because it is hilarious, romantic and very adorable.
