Synopsis from Goodreads
USA Today bestselling author Meghan Quinn brings more humor and heart with the fourth novel of her Getting Lucky series: a story about breaking curses and finally finding that swoony feeling.
I’m single . . . so single it’s painful.
Yup, ladies, Brig Knightly–that’s me–is still a lonely bachelor, stumbling through the streets of Port Snow, looking for the girl he’s supposed to end up with.
That is until my brother, Rogan, presents me with the opportunity of a lifetime. The Summer of Love, a secret pen pal program in Port Snow is looking for applicants and I’m the perfect fit.
I couldn’t sign up fast enough.
I found myself quickly falling in love with a pair of red lips at the bottom of a letter. Just like in the movies . . .
Life could not have been better, that was until I started hanging out with Ruth Barber. Starting a new business right next to my shop, I found myself gravitating toward her. Her smile, her humor . . . her tea sandwiches.
My attraction for Ruth came in full force, leaving me dazed, confused, and *ahem* excited.
As new feelings for two women come to a screeching halt, I have to figure out who to choose. But when I discover my pen pal is Ruth, it might be too late.
All I want in life is to experience that swoony feeling . . . but I think I might have just missed my chance.
That Swoony Feeling is utterly adorable, cute and hilarious in equal measure. Proving men can be completely clueless when it comes to seeing what is under their noses.
Brig has been struggling in the romance department since that fateful night of his 21st birthday in New Orleans when he and his brothers were cursed to have broken love. A total romantic at heart, Brig is searching for his soul-mate, projecting his need onto situations leading to re-enforcing the notion of the curse.
Ruth has had a crush on Brig for an eternity, although Brig has never really noticed her beyond his morning coffee at Snow Roast. The thing is Ruth tends to retreat into awkwardness whenever Brig is around, suppressing her sass and quick wit.
Both Brig and Ruth are pushed into a secret pen pal scheme as a way of meeting someone special. While the pair are getting to know each other in real life thanks to a special career project for Ruth, they are also conversing with their secret pen pals and forming a connection.
Brig is completely oblivious to Ruth’s attraction to him despite Ruth bravely pushing herself out of her comfort zone to show her interest. Brig’s ignorance of Ruth’s feelings is funny until it becomes painful.
Ruth and Brig are perfect for each other and everyone else around them can see that clearly, apparently the only one who can’t is Brig. anyone else want to knock him over the head!!!
I loved how Ruth’s confidence grew throughout That Swoony Feeling and her realisation and belief in being true to herself and her ideal of a relationship she deserves.
Brig matures a lot during the story and his actions really do bring on that swoony feeling.
I adore all of the characters in Port Snow and it was wonderful to be able to catch-up with the characters from the previous books. Please can I move there to find my own Happily Ever After.
