Emmaline Neal needs a date. Just a date—someone to help her get through her ex-fiancé's wedding without losing her mind. But pickings are slim in Manningsport, New York, population 715. In fact, there's really only one option: local heartthrob Jack Holland. Everyone loves Jack, and he won't get the wrong idea…. After all, Jack Holland would never actually be interested in a woman like Em. Especially not with his beautiful ex-wife creeping around, angling to reunite ever since he rescued a group of teens and became a local hero.
But when the wedding festivities take an unexpectedly passionate turn, Em figures it was just one crazy night. Jack is too gorgeous, too popular, to ever end up with her. So why is she the one he can talk to about his deep, dark feelings? If Em is going to get her dream man, she'll have to start by believing in him… - via GoodReads
In Your Dreams by Kristan Higgins is the stuff that contemporary romances are made of. Higgins stuffs her books full of romance, humor, and characters that are super easy to invest in.
I’ve wanted Jack Holland to have his own book since The Best Man. Jack is the big brother that everyone wants. Emmaline has got to be my favorite heroine yet. She’s sweet and funny, honest and giving, but she has no problem letting you know when you’re being a dunce.
This book is filled with so much and just the right amount of it all. Higgins isn’t afraid to let her characters be normal and it shines in In Your Dreams. I stayed up until the wee hours to finish this one.
I am pretty character driven when it comes to reading. I have to say that I could read about the citizens of Mannigsport for days. Maybe even weeks. I’m really hoping that there will be more books to follow!
