Title: Meant to Be (Perfect Fit #3.5)
Author: Alison Bliss
Rating: 4/5 stars
“Alison Bliss returns with a novella in her popular Perfect Fit series. These laugh-out-loud romantic comedies feature curvaceous heroines finding love and convincing us that confident and sexy comes in all shapes and sizes.
Sidney Larson always thought dark-haired, blue-eyed Brett Carmichael was sinfully sexy, to say nothing of the muscular mechanic’s talent with his hands. But Sidney so didn’t have time for Brett’s overbearing tendencies when they were together so she broke things off. Now a chance encounter brings Brett back into her life, and Sidney can’t help but notice intriguing changes in her ex. So what’s stopping her from revisiting their scorching-hot chemistry?
Since Sidney dumped him, Brett’s made major life adjustments, thanks to therapy and a long, hard look at himself. Sure, he’s still intense but he knows how to focus his energy on his career, not on trying to control a fantastic woman like Sidney. Brett finds the sweet, generous brunette more seductive than ever, but now that he’s finally worthy of her, will she be willing to give him a second chance?

I wanted to read this novella almost on a whim. I know of Alison Bliss and I own two of the three Perfect Fit novels. I just haven’t read them yet. When Meant to Be jumped in front of me I figured it was the best way to dive into Bliss’ series. I was definitely right to do so.
Like many novellas, for me, Meant to Be gives me both a taste of the author’s writing and a taste of the series in a short amount of time. I read this one fairly quickly for me and it was hard to put down when life told me to. I really enjoyed Brett and how Bliss wrote him. He’s flawed, he knows it, he’s making a constant effort to change for the better. Sidney is a strong woman, doesn’t want to give into her heart for good reason. These two have been apart for a year, but as the title suggests, some things are just meant to be. The journey won’t be easy, but reading that journey was a great Valentine’s Day treat for me!
I’ll definitely be visiting this series again soon.
