Someday Soon by Laura Ward – Jenn’s Review

WHY I READ IT

Laura Ward writes books chock full of feels. I never pass up the chance to lose myself in one.

WHAT I RATED IT

WHAT IT’S ABOUT

One mouthwatering temptation…

All Daisy Goldsmith wants is to get out of her small town, leaving behind the bullies who’ve taunted her. Attending culinary school in New York has always been her biggest dream—a dream she’s not confident enough to pursue. After all, she’s nothing but a “fat cow.” But when her brother’s best friend, the man who’s always secretly held her heart, moves back to town after college, everything changes for Daisy.

One scrumptious nibble…

The Goldsmith house has always been Jon Roberts’ sanctuary from the crazy of his life. With a broken and dysfunctional family, Jon embraces the Goldsmiths like his own. After getting a real glimpse of the woman Daisy’s becoming, Jon is torn between his loyalty to the family and his desire for his best friend’s little sister.

One delectable bite…

As Daisy and Jon spend more time together, they can’t resist the attraction between them. Once they’ve had a taste, nothing can keep them apart–not their dreams, their families, or the difference in their age. Can someday turn into forever or will they bite off more than they can handle?

JENN’S REVIEW

Sometimes, a book makes you feel so much, you can’t put it into words. They’re there, on the tip of your tongue, and flowing through your brain, but you can’t seem to get them down on paper. That’s how Someday Soon was for me. I have so much that I want to tell you about this incredible, moving, breathtaking, gorgeous love story. I have pages and pages of highlights, notes, and bookmarks, but I can’t seem to find the words to do it justice.

I have been waiting for Jon and Daisy’s story from the moment I read the final word in Until Now. I knew it was slightly forbidden, it was going to make my heart beat faster, and maybe break a little, but I wanted it. I needed it… and when I got it?

It was everything I wished it to be and more.

Jon, Daisy’s brother’s best friend, has always been good to Daisy and done his best to make sure they didn’t cross a line they couldn’t come back from. Daisy has harbored a secret crush on Jon for years, age difference be damned. While both of them kept their feelings to themselves, all of that changes when Daisy graduates high school.

Jon was the one of the most patient, kind hearted, gentle heroes I have had the pleasure of reading. If you are looking for a controlling alpha, you’re not going to find it here. Every time he opened his mouth, I became a puddle of goo. I just melted right there. I think half of my highlighted quotes are from Jon. Even if he wasn’t sure he was doing the right thing, he was saying the right thing.

Daisy, tired of not being taken seriously by her family, was taking a year off before college to prove to her parents that she was ready for culinary school in New York. The Goldsmith clan, while loving, could be a tad overprotective, and Daisy wasn’t going to let that get in her way. Daisy was such a well written, well rounded character, I loved her instantly. After years of being bullied at school, I loved watching her grow into herself and realize that she was worthy of the love that was right under her nose. Daisy is a true coming of age success story, and it was a privilege to witness it.

Someday Soon was all about the simple things. The stolen moments and glances. The trips to the grocery store, and walks along the lake. It’s about two best friends, not being afraid to take the next step. It was about two people falling in love, and growing together. It’s about what you can achieve when you start believing in yourself, and letting yourself be loved. Every time Ward releases a book, it becomes my new favorite, and Someday Soon is no exception.
