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?

There are men out there who can write a great romance! Just like Nicholas Sparks, Kenneth Rosenberg proves that men can write romance too!  Of course, Kenneth Rosenberg is has his own flair and style but he is an great writer. In “No Cure for the Broken Hearted” Katherine faces her first love after years of no communication, even though they agree to write and call. Think about your first love for a moment. Have you ever wondered “What if we didn’t break up?” “What if I saw him again?” “What if I had the chance to do it again?” For Katherine these questions are brought to life when in reality she is faced with Nick, the one who got away. 

For years she has been comparing every guy she meets to Nick. Katherine has little time for dating and prefers to bury herself in her work. When Nick ask her to design his dream house in Beach Cove, Katherine’s memories are brought back to the forefront of her mind. After hesitating, Katherine agrees to take on the project but not without wondering why Nick chose her? What does he really want?

This novel does a great job of depicting men and women. I thought it was interesting how Kate compared every guy to Nick and was still holding onto her first love while Nick, who thinks he’s moved on, dates multiple women and finally finds “the one” until he sees Katherine and starts to wonder. It made me think “Do we ever really get over our first love?” I enjoyed the characters in this book though Katherine was a little to dramatic for me. I wanted to make her focus and decide instead of being indecisive all the time. I also felt horrible for Kate and Nick since Nick’s mom played a part in their loss of contact. It made me wonder how many others have had this happen to them?

Overall the writing is smooth and Rosenberg pulls you into the story quickly. I read this fairly fast once I started. It’s a good clean romance with spunk. It holds a myriad of emotions between its humor, confusion, sadness and romance. I enjoyed reading it and will read other titles by Kenneth Rosenberg based on this book.
