Review – When the Time is Right by M. Mabie and Aly Martinez

wttir cover

Fate doesn’t always happen overnight.

Hudson Bradley is the cockiest, most stubborn, hard-headed man I’ve ever known. And for fifteen years, he’s been my brother’s best friend.

But lately, what I’m feeling for him isn’t friendship at all.

Why is my heart racing every time his blue eyes lock on mine?
Why does every word he rumbles in my ear make my body come alive?
And worst of all, why did I bet him that I could find a woman he and his son would both love?

If I hadn’t given up on love altogether, Hudson would have been perfect for me. After all, he was there the day my world fell apart. He’s spent the last six years piecing me back together.

There are a million reasons why we could never work, but after a single kiss, I can’t remember any of them.

Now that the time is right, I have to make him mine—before I lose him forever.

When the Time is Right was a phenomenal, MUST READ collaboration from M. Mabie and Aly Martinez, and I absolutely LOVED Hudson and Lex’s sweet, sexy, hilarious, emotional, and swoon-worthy romance!

   M. Mabie and Aly Martinez knocked it out of the romance park with When the Time is Right, and I loved the single dad/brother’s best friend storyline they crafted for Hudson and Lex. These amazingly talented authors had me laughing out loud, smiling like a fool, and swooning my ever-loving heart out from start to finish. They also incorporated plot twists and turns I didn’t see coming, which kept me on the edge of my seat. I loved every single page and moment of Hudson and Lex’s story, and was beyond ecstatic with the conclusion and couldn’t have loved it more.

   I loved the characters. Hudson and Lex were EVERYTHING, and I adored them with all my heart, as well as Hudson’s hilarious and adorable son, Jack. Hudson and Lex were extremely lovable and had fantastic personalities. They also had smoking hot chemistry together, and I loved the deep friendship and connection they shared. Hudson and Lex gave each other a run for their money, but were a perfect match. I absolutely loved watching their romance unfold, and it was a true pleasure experiencing their unforgettable journey with them.

   When the Time is Right was pure romance PERFECTION, and I absolutely loved this single dad/brother’s best friend standalone contemporary romance/romantic comedy! M. Mabie and Aly Martinez completely nailed it with Hudson and Lex’s sweet, sexy, funny, emotional, and swoon-worthy story, and I can’t wait to see what collaborative effort they release next!

About Aly Martinez

Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her husband and four young children.

Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and olives. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person.

She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a super-sized tumbler of wine by her side.
