Someone Like Him
by Ann Herrick
When New-York-City girl Emily visits her cousin Janelle in Oregon, Emily wonders how she'll survive the wilderness. Janelle wonders if the wilderness will survive Emily's visit--and if she can convince her cousin to help save part of an old-growth forest.
Meanwhile, Emily also wonders if a big-city girl can get along with a county guy--named Bret. Under forest canopies and by crystal-clear waters she struggles with her growing attraction to him. But they're so different. Whoever thought she'd fall for someone like him?
"What happens when a big city girl meets a boy from the country?" By Robin Leigh Morgan 1 year ago
All of us, if not most, have heard when it comes to romance that opposites attract. But will this be the case when big city girl Emily goes to visit her cousin Janelle in the wilds of Oregon and then on a camping trip into the woods and meets up with country boy Bret?
Having lived in NY City and the metropolitan area surrounding all of my life I know how fast spaced life can be. Everyone is always in a rush to do everything, everything that is, even when it comes to finding love and getting a serious relationship going. Guys are continuously on the prowl to add another name into their black books and if they can’t kiss the girl they’re with the first time out, they’ll most probably consider her a lost cause.
I know how hard it is to be transported to the country with a silence that allows you to hear the birds singing and the crickets chirping. I know how it is to have even the neighborhood Chinese takeout and other stores closing their doors by nine o’clock. Which is why, when the author allowed me to step into Emily’s shoes, I became somewhat envious of the relationship she had forming with Bret; a relationship, unlike those in the city, is allowed to start off with a glowing ember before developing into a small flame.
Bret, when it comes to his personality, is definitely a breath of fresh air as far as Emily is concern. Not only does Bret grow on Emily, so does the wilderness, as she develops a special fondness for both.
Ms. Herrick’s writing adds to the enjoyment in reading this book as you can almost smell the fresh, unpolluted air of the wilderness the story is taking place in, as well as having a wonderful character development for its two main characters, which is why I’ve given this book 5 STARS.
