Softly and Tenderly by Sara Evans 

Publisher: Gallery Books
Pages: 336
Format: eARC
Buy the Book: Amazon

Goodreads:  This is the classic tale of boy meets girl: Girl…goes home with someone else.

Meet Eve. She’s a dreamer, a feeler, a careening well of sensitivities who can’t quite keep her feet on the ground, or steer clear of trouble. She’s a laugher, a crier, a quirky and quick-witted bleeding-heart-worrier.

Meet Ben. He’s an engineer, an expert at leveling floors who likes order, structure, and straight lines. He doesn’t opine, he doesn’t ruminate, he doesn’t simmer until he boils over.

So naturally, when the two first cross paths, sparks don’t exactly fly. But then they meet again. And again. And then, finally, they find themselves with a deep yet fragile connection that will change the course of their relationship—possibly forever.


Kritters Thoughts:  First, it was easy for me to get into this book because when we go back in time to Eve's senior year in college it is 2005 and that was my senior year.  It made me smile that I could go there to that exact year and remember where I was in that year.  Now granted she was in New York City and I was in North Carolina, but same spot in time!

What a cute and sweet love story.  Sometimes when you are reading all the heavy literary fiction and mystery thrillers and such, you just need something light and airy to escape for awhile.  Eve and Ben both have opportunities to move the story along from their own perspectives and I love hearing about the ups and relationships from both the guys and the girls point of view.  

There isn't much to stay beyond the fact that I just adored this book.  I hope that this isn't just the one and only from Leslie Cohen and that she continues to write books that are in the same vain as this book.  I would even suggest readers to get this book and hold on to it for your next vacation, it would be a perfect any time of the year vacation - easy to pick up and put down and just a sweet simple escape!


Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
