Will She Reveal Her Big Secret to Eli and Open Her Heart to Love? As Right as Rain by @JMMaurer1 #NA

Title: As Right As Rain

Author: J. M. Maurer

Genre: Contemporary Romance, New Adult Romance

Book Blurb:

After finally landing her first job at a television station, meteorologist Makayla Reading is determined to make her mark on the world. With an ex she’d rather forget and no time for a new man in her life, what she needs is a true friend to help her deal with jittery nerves and her crabby boss who makes her life miserable.

Though a don’t-fall-for-the-cameraman rule should be easy to follow, sparks fly when she meets the handsome and charming Eli Barringer. As their relationship moves beyond friendship, Makayla realizes she must not only give in to her heart but also let Eli in on a secret she’s been keeping, a decision she knows is…as right as rain.

My Review:

Makayla is a young meteorologist at a local television station. She knows she has to pay her dues and she’s on board with that. A snow storm is on the way and she’s on her first assignment when she meets Eli, her cameraman. The chemistry is immediate, but she knows she’s not ready for a relationship, not after what her ex did to her. So, she and Eli become fast friends. He helps smooth her rough edges on and off camera. But between her boss’ inappropriate comments and keeping a big secret, Makayla’s life has gone from lonely to very complicated. Will she reveal her big secret to Eli and open her heart to love or will she be rolled over by the tornadoes in her life?

I’m a big fan of J. M. Maurer and was so excited to hear that she wrote a new adult romance featuring a meteorologist. I couldn’t wait to dive in. True to Maurer’s writing style, there’s depth and serious sub-plots solidifying the romance between Makayla and Eli. Families of both main characters make great secondary characters and there’s room for a sequel. I didn’t care for the solitary POV (Makayla) but that’s a personal preference. I enjoy hearing the male POV in my romances nowadays.

If you’re looking for a down-to-earth romance where the characters have real issues to work through, pick up As Right As Rain today.
