Beau oh my god Beau, he has loved and lost and my heart just breaks for him, but Charlotte, oh my she is the best thing to ever happen to him.
The start of this book is hilarious! Beau has no idea what he has gotten himself into when he arrives at the Sterling Inn and finds moaning from behind closed doors and blow up dolls! Ok, so he discovers that it is actually Charlotte, enacting scenes for her writing – she is an erotic author and has to get her inspiration from somewhere to make her scenes realistic! From here we and Beau are privy to all of Charlotte’s quirks and for all I love all of Melissa’s book I don’t think any have make me smile and laugh so much than this one did.
Charlotte has lost all her family, and despite being alone she is the most loving, funny and carefree woman just waiting on her own fairy tale romance. Beau still hasn’t gotten over his first love who died in a tragic accident, and only agreed to come and help renovate the Inn to Hal as a favour but also as a means to escape his past and the anniversary of her death back home.
Knowing all that Charlotte has lost he thinks his loss is trivial in comparison but what Charlotte does is bring out the healing his heart needs to become whole again. They are just the best couple and go really well together, from the start the chemistry, laughter and romance is there and despite being opposites, together they can heal each others hurts away.
This is book 2 in The Bradens & Montgomerys series, part of the bigger Love in Bloom series by Melissa, and all her books are amazing as stand alone, but they are utterly wonderful if read as a series.
