A chance encounter . . . Grace Warren’s life is safe and predictable—exactly the way she likes it. But when she gets roped into going to an auction to help out a friend, everything changes. She meets Seth Tuttle—a guy who unexpectedly kisses her then disappears, leaving her flustered and upset. If she never sees him again, it will be too soon.A chance for love . . .
Weeks later, when Seth limps into Grace’s rehab clinic post surgery, she immediately recognizes him. Unfortunately, he’s every bit as frustrating and annoying as she remembered. Yet there’s something about him that makes her second-guess her carefully placed boundaries even though he’s everything she’s sure she doesn’t want in a man. But maybe Seth is exactly what Grace has needed all along—assuming she’s willing to risk safe and predictable for a chance at love.
The Reluctant Bachelorette was a very cute, fun read, so I was excited to get the chance to read Rachael's newest novel. Although Grace could be a frustrating character, I still loved the personal growth all the characters went through and the family relationships that were shown.
Grace was an okay main character, but I felt that she was too uptight and I wanted her to be more trusting of Seth in the beginning. On the other hand, Seth was a great love interest. I liked how he worked to bring Grace out of her shell and help her let go of the past. The way their relationship developed was super sweet and the epilogue was perfect ;)
A major part of the plot had to do with Grace's struggles with her brother, who's paralyzed from a skiing accident he had several years before. Their relationship was so heartbreaking, but I liked how Alec (her brother) had his own story incorporated into the book.
The dialogue was fun and the way the relationship between Grace and Seth developed was especially interesting to read about it. I'd give Working It Out 3 1/2 out of 5 flowers.
