No Judgments, Meg Cabot


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.

Em temporada de furacões e tornados, nada melhor do que um bom romance para dar dicas de comportamento, do que estocar e de como cuidar dos pets nestas situações.

Bree está em Little Bridge Island depois que uma tempestade emocional engoliu sua vida e não pensou duas vezes antes de largar a faculdade e sua vida em Nova York para fugir para o recanto preferido do pai. 

Agora ela está prestes a enfrentar sua primeira tempestade e não imagina o que vai enfrentar. A mãe dela, em desespero, pede ao ex namorado de Bree para buscá-la mas Bree não acha que é necessário nem tampouco quer ficar perto do cara. 

Mas à medida que chega o momento em que a tempestade vai tocar o solo, ela se vê diante de várias pessoas evacuando e outras protegendo suas casas e fica se perguntando se tomou a atitude certa ficando lá.
O livro basicamente se detêm nos cuidados prévios, no decorrer e posteriores à tempestade e mostra como essa doce guerreira irá se comportar frente a todos os desafios que terá que enfrentar. 

Claro que tendo Meg Cabot envolvida teremos também um romance gostoso, envolvente e calliente, me vi matando a saudade de seus romances de época em várias partes da leitura e amei como ela conduziu toda a situação da tempestade física e emocional.

Drew é um verdadeiro cavalheiro, e assim como Bree, sofreu muito no passado e ama verdadeiramente seus cachorros. Eles se unem para cuidar dos pets deixados pra trás pelos moradores e acabam percebendo o quanto tem em comum.

Foi uma leitura prazerosa e agradável, leve e cheia de lições repleta de pets fofuchos e amigos especiais. Cada capítulo é aberto por um alerta sobre a tempestade mostrando a mudança na temperatura, na força dos ventos e depois mostrando os alertas das autoridades.

Amei muito a capa, só acho que faltou Gary, o gato de Bree, que é destaque durante boa parte do livro.


In English:

In hurricane and tornado season, there is nothing better than a good romance to give behavioral tips, which things to stocking up and what to do with pets.

Bree is on Little Bridge Island after an emotional storm that engulfed her life and didn't think twice about dropping out of college and all her life in New York to escape to her father's favorite refuge.

Now she's about to face her first storm and can't imagine what she's going to do. Her desperate mother asks Bree’s ex boyfriend to pick her up but Bree doesn't think it's necessary nor does she want to be around the guy.

But as the moment comes near the storm hits the ground, she finds herself standing in front of several people evacuating others protecting their homes, she wonders if she did right by staying there.

The book basically focuses on pre-care, during and aftercare and shows how this sweet warrior will behave during all the challenges she will face.

Of course having Meg Cabot involved we will also have a delightful, engaging and callient romance, I found myself smiling and remembering her previous historical romances at so many parts of the reading and loved how she handled the whole physical and emotional storm situation.

Drew is a true gentleman and just like Bree has suffered a lot in the past and he truly loves his ‘Bob’ dogs so cute and funny. Bree and Drew come together to take care of the pets left behind by the residents that evacuated and moment by moment realize how much they have in common.

It was a pleasant and enjoyable reading, light and full of lessons filled with sweet pets and special friends. Each chapter is opened by a storm alert showing the change in temperature, wind strength and others important details and then displaying the authorities' warnings.

Loved the cover so much I just think that they forget to put Gary, Bree's cat, who is the highlight of the book too .
