Without a Doubt



Calista Anderson is a young, Boston-based romance author with three best-selling novels and countless well-received short stories and magazine articles on her resume. For the first time in a decade of writing, Callie is blocked and running late on a deadline for her fourth book. In an effort to break the ties holding Callie's creative mojo hostage, her editor Jane Paget decides to send Callie into exile on the island of Martha's Vineyard, far away from the city distractions of Boston, to work through her block. Reluctantly, Callie accepts her editor's isolation sentence and packs her bags to spend the winter on the Vineyard. Soon after arriving at the tiny, idyllic island community, Callie meets Jackson Brody, her handsome and intriguing new neighbor whose obvious attraction to Callie proves to be her biggest distraction of all. Island living - and Jack, quickly grow on Callie and the winter never felt so hot. Will Jack be the muse Callie needs to break through her writer's block or will he prove to be too much man for her to handle? Spend a Vineyard winter with Callie. Experience the island through her eyes and her budding self-discovery as she explores the possibilities of a future with Jack. Be witness to the author pitfalls and celebrations as she creates her next best-selling novel. You will enjoy her story...without a doubt.

Callie is a best-selling romance writer, with a movie deal for her second book and on the cusp of striking a deal for her third one. She has been writing non-stop for 10 years, and that (and a bad experience during college) has left her with little time for love. Writer's block has never been an issue for her, until now, and her editor suggests a change of scenery might do the trick. So Callie moves to Martha's Vineyard for the rest of winter to force herself to write. She didn't count on meeting Jack, her neighbor, on the first day there, or that he'd be so distracting and seemingly attracted to her, as well. They move into an easy relationship and while the deadline for Callie to move back to Boston is approaching fast, it's Jack's past that might prove an insurmountable hurdle for them to get past it.

I liked Callie a lot. She seemed very down-to-earth and mature in some ways, very naive and innocent in others. I'm not sure what I feel about Jack, though. He was really pushy, especially at the start, and it made me uncomfortable how he would almost force himself on Callie until she finally put a stop to that. Still, he was all in at full-speed, whereas she needed a bit more coaxing. They had good chemistry, and the sex scenes were hot, so there's that. 

I hated Liz and Alex, and it was awful the way they conspired to ruin Callie and Jack's relationship. I would've liked that either Jack or Callie had more of a confrontation with them and to see them get their comeuppance. 

Without wanting to spoil this too much, I have to say I wasn't too fond of Jack's reaction to Callie when she came back, and while Callie's reaction to what made her leave was a bit over the top, with all things considered I might have done the same thing she did. 

Overall, this was an enjoyable, different kind of read than what I'm used to by Ann Lister. No less good, just different, well-written and well-paced. Recommendable! 

Rating: 4 Stars!
