Betrayal, Secrets, and Love
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Book Length (Est.): 314 Pages
Talented chef Meg Delaney hasn’t spoken to her cheating ex-fiancé, Matt Midland, for two years. Ditching him at the altar after blurting out “I can’t” instead of “I do” would sour any relationship. But now, just as Meg is finally ready to bury the hatchet, she learns closure is permanently off the menu. And the kicker? Matt’s brother, Kyle, is back in her life, stirring up feelings that are equal parts guilt and lust.
Meg was the best thing that never happened to Kyle. He couldn’t make a move on his brother’s girlfriend—even if Matt didn’t value her nearly enough. The situation is even more complicated now that Meg’s bestselling aphrodisiac cookbook has spawned a legal battle with the Midlands. Maybe he should stay away. But love, like family, plays by its own rules. And the one woman he shouldn’t want might be the only one who’s perfect for him.

Sometimes your soulmate is right in front of you and you never notice.
Meg was engaged to Matt, but a little infidelity changed the courses of their lives. Meg tried to move forward, but needed closure, one that circumstances would deny her. What she got instead was time with Kyle and hit with a lawsuit. Nothing ever seemed to go her way.
Kyle wanted something he could never have, Meg. Falling for your brother’s fiancé wasn’t exactly the best move a man could make, but then again you can’t control what the heart wants. When his path crosses with Meg’s again he’ll do whatever he can to keep them crossing even if means being caught between her and his family.
Meg is sweet, but has issues regarding her past. Kyle is confused and although he knows what he wants he’s unsure of how to get it.
Now That It’s You is a winding road of betrayal, secrets, and love. With a family dealing with grief, a woman handling an unexpected success, and a man whose greatest creation came straight from his heart’s desire there are definitely some interesting twists and turns. However, there is also a lot of regret filled drama that makes it more dreary than captivating. If it wasn’t for the random bouts of humor I’m not sure I would have wanted to finish it.
My Favorite Laughable Moment: Nothing like catering a bachelorette party.
“I made all the little penises by hand, which took forever.”
“I feel like I should be able to come up with a good hand job joke right now, but I’m honestly at a loss.”
“You should have seen me trying to talk the bride out of an Alfred sauce,” she said “Not the best choice with penis pasta.”
