No Judgements - Meg Cabot
ABOUT THE BOOK -
The storm of the century is about to hit Little Bridge Island, Florida—and it’s sending waves crashing through Sabrina “Bree” Beckham’s love life…
When a massive hurricane severs all power and cell service to Little Bridge Island—as well as its connection to the mainland—twenty-five-year-old Bree Beckham isn’t worried . . . at first. She’s already escaped one storm—her emotionally abusive ex—so a hurricane seems like it will be a piece of cake.
But animal-loving Bree does become alarmed when she realizes how many islanders have been cut off from their beloved pets. Now it’s up to her to save as many of Little Bridge’s cats and dogs as she can . . . but to do so, she’s going to need help—help she has no choice but to accept from her boss’s sexy nephew, Drew Hartwell, the Mermaid Café’s most notorious heartbreaker.
But when Bree starts falling for Drew, just as Little Bridge’s power is restored and her penitent ex shows up, she has to ask herself if her island fling was only a result of the stormy weather, or if it could last during clear skies too.

MY THOUGHTS -
This is exactly what I did when I saw that my Meg Cabot book had come in the mail!!!!
I am a huge fan of hers and have read several (not all... yet) of her books.
OK so who doesn't love a good hurricane romance??? Am I right? This was a fun, but also kinda realistic, quirky romance. I have only been through one hurricane when I lived in Savannah GA in the mid 80's (can't remember which one it was, but it was a doozie). AND - just like the book says, they really do have hurricane parties! I went to one! The electricity was off for at least a day, we lit candles, everyone brought food (and of course alcohol!), there was guitar playing and dancing. It was so much fun we hardly even knew there was concrete pool furniture being rearranged by the wind!!!
Excellent character development. I liked Bree even though she was VERY stubborn and indecisive! I loved the hunky Drew, who wouldn't? And also loved all the minor characters! You really get a feel for everyone. Especially all the animals, Bree's cat Gary, Drew's dogs all named Bob LOL, even the guinea pigs R2-D2 and C-3PO we very likable!
So, the big question is - is everyone going to survive the hurricane? NO! that's NOT the the question that will be on everyone's mind! Will Bree and Drew ever hook up????? That's the question! And I am afraid I can't tell you, that would be a spoiler (although I am sure you can already guess).
Read the book you won't regret it. In fact, read all of Meg Cabot's books! They are all fantastic!
I voluntarily posted this review after receiving a copy of this book from TLC Book Tours - Thank You!!
