He sets up shop in Redemption, next to Bliss Bridal, and so begins life: Part Two. Marriage has been pretty low on his agenda, but as soon as he meets Gillian, Tucker can’t help but contemplate the ultimate challenge: Convincing the reluctant bride to take his hand and leap into the adventure of a lifetime. . .until death do they part.
Tucker by Emily March is a heartfelt novel about second chances, love, and family. Of course, there were other issues discussed within the book. Relationships are complicated especially, Tucker’s and Gillian’s. There was an instant chemistry between them. I had hoped she dumped and left her fiancee for good and would explore what she and Tucker had. Only to find out that wasn’t exactly the case. It was a tug of war. The emotional and physical attractions were visible enough. I rooted for them to be together. The story held sad, funny, and charming moments. One scene was Tucker with his little niece. That was one of my favorites. As well, as their first meeting and the ending. The bad fiancee of Gillian’s was a jerk. He was all air and nothing else. The other minor characters made the book more enjoyable. I liked how the families and their friends were supportive. Overall, this was a great contemporary romance novel.
