Review: Here's to Tomorrow by Teagan Hunter (Here's to #1)


Note: This ARC was provided by the author via Enticing Journey Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

He's a single dad who looks settled but is looking for something that sparks some excitement in his mundane life; she's a single girl who looks like she's ready to mingle in the big city but then meets someone who leaves her unsettled. The last thing twenty-four-year-old mechanic Hudson Tamell and twenty-two-year-old waitress Rae Kamden want is to enter into a committed relationship. They have plans for themselves, plans that never made any concessions for the possibility of meeting and falling for each other. But the heart wants what it wants and Hudson heart wants Rae and Rae's wants him. Plans can be changed, but are Hudson and Rae prepared for their lives to change forever once they finally decide that what they want AND need is right there before them and to hold on?

Here's to Tomorrow is the first novel in Teagan Hunter's Here's to series and this re-release has been edited and given a new cover. I never read the original version of the book so I can't compare or note what changes have been made. The version I did read was a good romance, one that had the main characters veering away from the stereotypical roles that are given. Here, Hudson's the more quiet and shy one while Rae is sassy and speaks her mind. These two may seem like opposites but they're in the same place in their respective lives--wanting to move forward and not get stuck in the rut that they think they've been in for far too long. Rae finds small town life stifling and Hudson may be a father and quite stable in terms of standing, but he wants something out of his norm.

There's definite chemistry between Rae and Hudson, and I enjoyed the banter between the two of them. This wasn't an overly heavy read, though the pacing was a bit slower than I would have liked during the first several chapters of the book. Hudson is the perfect guy, maybe a tad too perfect to the point that it's difficult to relate to him or imagine him being real. But setting aside the notion of how impossible Hudson could exist outside of a book, he was probably my favorite thing about this series starter. Who wouldn't want a swoon-worthy hero to drool over, erm, fantasize about, right? Here's to Tomorrow had a good cast of characters and a story that was able to entertain me for the entire three or so hours I spent with it in my hands. Here's to more of Here's to. Four stars. ♥
