What it’s about:

Twenty-four-year-old Nicole Fletcher is having a rough summer. The woman who raised her is dying and there’s nothing she can do about it. Nothing but find solace in the forbidden fantasies starring her best friend’s younger brother. Nic knows there are some lines you can never cross – but when it comes to “little” Landon Pike, she kind of already has. She tries to stay away but when your world is falling apart, you can’t help but fall right along with it. Good thing Landon refuses to let her fall alone.

Guest Reviewer Tom’s Thoughts:

Marley Jacobs’ Goodnight Nic is a young romance with a predictable story line, but one that rises above the rest with polished writing, good character development, and a few good surprises.  Ms Jacobs treats us to an intimate look at two very close families and the relationship that develops between a boy and girl who struggle to come to grips with their true feelings having grown up together as extended family.  What is truly refreshing about Ms Jacobs’ treatment is that she describes two very believable family environments by exposing us to their rough around the edges personalities with a “take us as we are” kind of freshness that goes a long way in depicting the warmth and love that exists both within and between these two families.  Sex scenes are also tastefully done, not overdone,…well thought out and not gratuitous with the right amount of emotional backing.

Icing on the cake is that all characters are well developed and extremely likable, each capable of delivering a laugh out loud moment stemming from an endearing quirkiness.  This makes each personality refreshingly genuine in their own way and adds to the prominent family dynamic throughout.   As a result, Ms. Jacobs delivers a very enjoyable story with an overarching wholesomeness that really works.
