“So much for destiny. This was more like fate’s idea of a practical joke.”
Monica Prescott, writer and world traveler, has everything she wants … except a man who’s free-spirited enough to join her for a life on the road. But when she bumps into Jason, the guy who broke her heart in college, she lets him think she’s engaged. It wouldn’t take much to fall for him again—and that’s one road she doesn’t want to go down.
Jason Moretti has a job he hates, and he’d like nothing better than to tell his boss to shove it. Then he runs into Monica, the girl he never got over. Thinking she’s settling down with a wealthy fiancé, he reinvents himself as an ambitious career man in a desperate bid to impress her.
Old feelings start to resurface, but Monica has trust issues and Jason doesn’t like risks. To top it off, Monica is leaving for Bangkok in two weeks—and she won’t be back anytime soon. Time is running out for them to come to terms with the past and embrace their wanderlust.
Wanderlust by Thea Dawson is such a sweet, heartbreaking, and romantic story. It was by far one of the sweetest stories I’ve read in a long time.
I loved the chemistry between the characters. It was so beautiful. You know instantly that they have a connection like no other. The more you read the more you know it’s a once in a lifetime kind of love. It is just breathtaking.
Monica is an inspirational character. I loved that she didn’t let anyone hold her back from her dreams. She followed them to her heart’s desire. I loved that she got to do so much traveling to different places; I’ve always wanted to do that. My heart broke for her when Jason wasn’t in her plan anymore.
Jason is definitely a remarkable guy. I’ll admit at one point I wasn’t sure about him, but the more I read the more I loved him. I had a love hate relationship with his character at first, and then grew to just love him. The older he gets the more he learns from his mistakes and grows as a person.
These two are destined to be together. But will they be? You’ll have to read this beautiful story to find out for yourself. The ending is just precious and I loved this book from beginning to end. A breathtakingly sweet story that leaves you in awe.
I give Wanderlust by Thea Dawson 4 out of 5 Sweet Stars
“You still smell the same.” I whispered when we broke apart for a few moments later. I felt his lips on my earlobe. “And you’re just as beautiful.” He answered. His voice hoarse.
