Someone Like You by Victoria Bylin is an extraordinary novel that had me laughing and falling in love. The characters had their own life struggles like a single mom with a kid battling the kids father on everything…and then there’s the guilt of never telling the guy that was super nice to her about the night a long time ago…felt like she betrayed the amazing man, Zeke. Then, there is Zeke. He’s a preacher’s kid but since his parents’ death and his business degree, he became a manager for a resort. A beautiful old resort that is fastly falling apart and needing major repairs as well as a flood of guests to keep it afloat. But that’s not all…there’s this super bad ass goat that eats everything and attacks people like Zeke’s woman crush whom he still has deep feelings for…but it’s up to fate if they’re paths will entwine. As for the romance that blooms and the state of the resort, Victoria Bylin brings humor, adventure, and good clean romance that I absolutely loved. Someone Like You definitely fits in perfectly with this well-written plot and the characters lured me in instantly. Overall, I highly recommend this beautiful heart melting story to readers everywhere.
