Book Review: No Cure for the Broken Hearted by Kenneth Rosenberg

No Cure for the Broken Hearted

Synopsis (from Goodreads):  Katherine Spencer is an up-and-coming architect in New York City. Her professional life is on the fast-track. Her personal life is a shambles. Katherine compares every man she ever meets to Nick Bancroft, the billionaire’s son who broke her heart one summer long ago. Now, twelve years later he’s suddenly reappeared, asking her to design a house at the cove where they shared their first kiss. Is he looking for an architect, or something more? And should she forgive him?

My Thoughts:  I really enjoyed this romantic story!  How could you not?  Plus, is there a woman out there that can't relate to the "what if?" game?  What if it really worked out between me and my first love?  What if he showed up at my front door years later? 

These are questions Katherine Spencer faces.  She is an extremely successful architect who lives for her job despite her best friend's efforts.  Katharine is okay with this until her crush, a boy she met when she was 16, shows up to have her design his dream house.  Of course, her whole world is then turned upside down.  Nick is insistent that it is Katherine that designs his house and no one else.  Katherine is questioning this and wondering "why her" and "what does he really want"?  I really liked Katherine but sometimes got annoyed with her indecisiveness.  Just a small flaw though.

I really liked Nick too.  He is super rich (the son of billionaires) and while Katherine has stayed stuck on Nick throughout the years, Nick has apparently moved on, dating his fair share of women.  He is of course, dating a woman who he is sure is the "One" until he spends time with Katherine.  The more time he spends with Katherine, the more he begins to wonder. 

I loved seeing how Nick and Katherine worked through all the emotion and confusion.  It was funny, sad, and clean!  If you like a good romance, this book is for you!
