AMIE'S 4 STAR REVIEW
As always Melody Grace has delivered an enjoyable read and a start to a new series that has given us some promising characters to come !! I have always enjoyed this author because she can give you a story that warms your heart , spices up the sheets and has some minimal drama. You can always count on a bit of humor and great supporting characters. Although I call the story lines simple with an easy flow that does not mean they are boring at all , it is a great compliment because it means that she is getting her point across and not driving us readers crazy doing it. It is nice to have a go to author that you can count on for a kind of stress free read !!
Poppy is a romance author who has yet to find that true love in real life. She is currently hiding away to write the next book in her series on the heels of calling off her wedding to her boyfriend of a couple years. Many were surprised yet those few that really know her could tell she was not complete with Owen. Staying in Mass. on Cape Cod she plans to relax and unwind while getting her drive for writing back. Her aunt is on a cruise so for now she has the house to herself which is perfect for the peace and quiet she craves after living in New York for so long. She is not expecting an annoying construction crew to be banging away on the house next door and the head of the annoying crew to be none other than a boy from summers past that always had a knack for driving her crazy !! You know how this goes - they come face to face , they are amazed at how each other has come into themselves yet they don't want to admit that out loud because their first encounter after all those years was not amazing !! Cooper has no faith in the fairy tale life Poppy writes about therefore he blows his attraction off. When the pull is inescapable we see just how hot their chemistry can be and we quickly fall in love with Cooper and Poppy as a couple. Cooper's past issues with love and Poppy's current situation of heading back to New York poses a few issues in their new found relationship. Will they be able to overcome or will they end up as just a quick fling leaving scars on each others hearts ??
