He lifted his wine glass and swirled the contents. “Zane, right? Here because you desperately need me?”
“I need -” Zane noticed a splotch of red wine on the breast of the guy’s jacket. “Becky?”
Zane might very well be the biggest romantic there ever was. Yet when his visa is about to expire, he tries to force a Meet Cute – both to ensure his own personal happiness and to stay close to the only family that he truly loves. Zane thinks he’s willing to do whatever it takes to stay, to fall in love, but what happens when love blindsides him? Will he notice what’s right in front of his face?
Zane might be considered the family misfit, having dropped out of high school when all of his brothers ended up being extremely successful, but he’s a shining star to those that care for him. He might mistake Tolstoy with Toy Story, but his heart is always in the right place.
Family might not always understand you, but it’s important to stay close to the people that do. For Zane, only his older brother, Jacob, understands him. Luckily, his brother is willing to do just about anything to ensure he find his happiness. When Zane needs a place to crash, Jacob and his loving wife, Anne, find him a place. Just for a couple of days, of course.
My favourite part of this tale was the interactions between characters. Zane and Becky might not come from the same world, but they managed to make their living situation work. Jacob and Zane have a loving relationship and are truly always there for each other. Heck, even Darla made this story a fantastic read.
Of course this tale had the adorable moments that I’ve loved throughout the series, as well. The way the relationship builds into something more so organically makes me smile. Zane and Becky need to learn how to be themselves, how not to be afraid of the world. Sometimes opening up to someone isn’t the easiest thing in the world, but it can also be a beautiful thing.
If you’re looking for a Meet Cute romance, look no further. Zane and Becky pulled at my heart strings as they pieced each other together and I’m sure they’ll pull at yours as well.
