If you had asked me if I’d ever be dating Chris St. James, well, let’s just say it’s more likely Jimmy Choo would name a shoe after me.
Which, Jimmy, if you’re out there, the “Ella Mae” would definitely be a big seller. Call me, Mkay?
But, back to Chris. Sure, he’s handsome. I mean, his arms are as big as my legs! He’s got those lips that would make Michelangelo pause and grab a rock to start sculpting. And when you top his looks off with the whole hero-vibe he has going for him. Yes. He’s a fine specimen of manhood.
But, Chris is closed off, and judgy. And even if he weren’t, we’re from two separate sides of our town.
Remember Romeo and Juliet? That didn’t end so well, did it?
Besides, Chris and I don’t have any desire to date, or even talk to one another most days.
We’re not exactly what you’d call friends.
But, here’s the thing. You never know what situations life is going to throw at you. And right now, I’m in a doozie. Which means, Chris St. James–yes, that brawny, broody man–is now my boyfriend.
Well … He’s not really my boyfriend.
But don’t tell anyone.
I was so excited for this book! And a little nervous because I was so excited 🙂 But I shouldn’t have worried because Savannah Scott did not disappoint! Ella Mae and Chris finally get their HEA.
Okay, I honestly am not sure if I really liked Ella Mae from the first couple books, but as I kept reading the series, you get the feeling that there is more to her than meets the eye. And there is so much more to her than the annoying cell phone obsessed influencer. She’s kind, funny, and somehow a perfect mix of insecurity and confidence. I loved her! She was dealing with so much, and I loved getting to pull back the layers to her character.
Chris was such a sweetheart! He’s a soldier through and through, and he is not amused by Ella Mae’s antics. But it was so sweet to watch him fall in love with her! He got to see past all of her walls to who she really was. And it was adorable to see how she made him relax and enjoy life. He didn’t really know how to have fun before being with her. And I love how he steadied her and made her open up.
The town was more frustrating in this one. You really got to see how badly Ella Mae was treated, and it’s very irritating! But let’s just say that there’s a happy ending.
I loved this book! It was the perfect ending to the Getting Shipped series! It is a clean romcom with only some swoony kisses 🙂
