Book Review - Drawn Into You by Aurora Rose Reynolds

ABOUT THE BOOK


Courtney Williams wanted forever. She got six years of empty promises, a divorce, and a well-deserved settlement that’s paid her way to Manhattan. She has a new home under renovation, a new job, and a do-over as a happy “single in the city”—until she meets an architect with designs on more than her beams. He’s also a devoted single dad, a great cook, and has dark lashes to die for. Too good to be true. Now all Courtney can do is whisper, Oh no, not again.
Divorced Lucas Fremont isn’t looking to get swept away. But how can he not with a woman this sweet and sexy? She’s making his broken heart beat fast. His sister-in-law, Fawn, says go for it. But as cautious as Courtney is, Lucas has to do more than that. He has to fight for it. Now all he can do is think, Don’t let this one get away.
But Courtney comes with a secret. And Lucas comes with a bitter ex. If love is to stand a chance, they’re going to have to take a chance.

REVIEW

I have enjoyed the Fluke My Life series immensely and have been eagerly awaiting Lucas's book since the first time we met him and his crazy (now ex) wife.  Courtney is the perfect balance for Lucas and is written so differently than the Reed sisters.  Lucas's daughter Maddie was a scene stealer in the best way and the protectiveness Lucas has for his daughter makes it impossible not to fall in love with him right along with Courtney.  


OVERALL RATING - 4 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy

Book Review - My Kind of Forever by Tracy Brogan - Kindle Unlimited read AND listen for free

ABOUT THE BOOK


As the youngest mayor Trillium Bay has ever elected, Brooke Callaghan wants to prove she’s up to the challenge. She’s stepping out of her practical teacher flats and into her sister’s treacherously high heels…with disastrous results. But if she’s going to (literally) stumble her first day on the job, why not fall into the arms of a handsome stranger?
Leo Walker is a rarity on Wenniway Island. Not only handsome, he’s also single, funny, and—most importantly—interested in Brooke. Unfortunately, his reasons for being on the island are temporary, so in spite of the undeniable chemistry between them, he’s not a forever kind of guy.
When a private investigator arrives with news of a jewel thief hiding on the island, Brooke finds herself dealing with one kerfuffle after another, and Leo proves to be a delicious distraction. What does she really know about him, though? And the biggest question of all? Does this short-term romance hold the possibility of long-term love?

REVIEW

This book has a little bit of everything.  Mystery.  Romance.  Comedy.  While the plot could have gone a little slap-stick, Brogan does a great job of provide entertainment while still maintaining a realistic feel that keeps the reader engaged and a general feeling that this could be an island that anyone would go to for vacation.  Brooke and Leo are as down to earth as you can get as characters go.  The supporting characters really add to the story and really add to the small town feel.  As I've come to expect from Brogan's writing, the story had the feel of a romantic comedy and anyone who enjoys the genre will love this book.
