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.
No Judgments is the first full length book in the contemporary romance Little Bridge Island series by author powerhouse Meg Cabot. I love Meg Cabot’s romances, and this one was no exception. No Judgments was an adorable book featuring plenty of swoons, sizzle and dogs!! So many dogs! How can you not love a book featuring characters that are rescuing dogs in a Hurricane?? I can’t wait for the next book in the series.
No Judgments takes place on Little bridge Island…named for the little bridge that you have to cross to reach it. The island is located south of Miami, Florida and is a tiny town with a small population. Bree is our main character, and she is Little Bridge Island’s newest inhabitant. when a hurricane sets it’s path on Little Bridge island most of the people pack up and leave town, but a few of the locals including Bree because she has no where else to go, stay. One of those locals is Drew, who is also the nephew of Bree’s boss.
No Judgments tackles a serious topic amidst it’s flirty bantering romance. The topic of abandoned pets in a natural disaster. Unfortunately, many times when a family evacuates “for a few days” to let a storm pass through, they leave their pets in the boarded up houses. Bree notices and she takes it upon herself to break into the houses and rescue the pets from the flooding and damage caused by the storm. I loved Bree and I really admire her determination and sense of self. Watching her banter with Drew was also lots of fun. Overall, No Judgments was different than I expected it to be, but in a good way. I enjoyed Drew and Bree’s story and I am ready for more from the inhabitants of Little Bridge Island, which is perfect timing because book 2 releases in a couple of weeks!
