My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Crafting Love is the first novel in the Wine and Furniture series by A. E. Gamrat. This is my first novel by this author.

Kelly is a small town girl who works who two other women, Delilah and Daisy. Kelly also has a Youtube channel with a few thousand followers. Kelly is the type of woman who prefers to stay busy.

One night, Kelly goes to karaoke and meets Kirk. While there is an instantly attraction, Kelly is apprehensive about a relationship because of a previous relationship in the past.

Kirk moves in with his cousin for a fresh start and instantly falls in love with Kelly. But both are hiding secrets of their own. Will the secrets tear them apart before they even have a chance to get together?

I really enjoyed this story. It was cute, funny and relatable. I love the cover and the premise caught my attention.

I enjoy the progress of Kelly and Kirk’s relationship from being friend to slow becoming more.

I noticed that this is a series and look forward to reading the next book.

Crafting Love was a good 4 star read and the first book in the Wine & Furniture series.

Kelly loves living in a small town. She is happy with all aspects of her life. While out with friends she meets Kirk. Kelly had pretty much given up on having love in her life, that is until Kirk. Kirk was great, he was perfect for Kelly.

Can they have a HEA?

Kirk offers to help Kelly with some things around her house. The more time he spends with her the closer they start to get. You can feel their connection coming off the pages.
I really loved all of the secondary characters. A.E. Gamrat does a great job of pulling you with her writing, I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

This book about Kelly and Kirk had “all the feels” for me. Hands down, I was immediately invested in what happened to the main characters and found myself engrossed in every page. I simply adored the quirks each character had. It was just a solid book, very well written, and very enjoyable way to pass the time.

Crafting Love (Wine & Furniture Series Book 1) by A.E. Gamrat is a well written romance story and a great read. The characters were enjoyable, well mostly, Grace us the friend and she annoyed me but I loved Kelly the main character. The book is quick and enjoyable read and readily drew me in.

Kelly loves the small town in which she lives and her job. She has the best friends and she loves her circuit. She is however lonely. She has given up on love but one night out may change her life.

I am excited to see where A.E. will take us with the next book.

A couple of things happened as I read this book…
1. I want to create my own furniture
2. I’m glad I am still in touch with my “friend since the womb”
3. I really really want a Cricut(tm) machine of my own
4. Regarding 1&3 I always start strong with new adventures, but rarely finish so I will stick to reading about them 🙂

On to the review…

Quick character development. Strong female characters. Great friendships (even when they are annoying). Handy men who are handy. This book was a quick read that held my attention from beginning to end.

With the great world building in this story, I am looking forward to the next in the series.

Crafting Love
By A.E. Gamrat
Rated 5 stars!!

I just want to say this is a slow clean story. If that’s not your thing…please read on. If it is…please read on! This is full of sweet romance. Not only that but this also tell the story of amazing friendships. I will say that I had tears in my eyes a couple times. Yes there are obstacles in this but mostly it’s about the lovely relationships that the MC has. The girlfriends…the brothers and the new guy. It’s about life and living it on your terms.

I usually don’t care all that much for a slow romance. I actually tend to skip over paragraphs while reading. This one I did not do that. I actually LOVE this guy! Well this slow romance. He is so thoughtful and kind and nice! I love how he always wants to be touching her, kissing her on the head or neck and those SLAPS on the behind!! That makes him sooo SEXY! I loved reading Chapter 13…..(Kirk’s chapter). Getting his thoughts on some things and his feelings was nice. I wanted to highlight most of that chapter!

Her friends…I LOVED as well! That Grant! Not to mention Grace and the Wine Girls! They were all adorable and really helped move this story along. The writing was smooth as I had questions about a few things but they were answered as the story moved along. Obviously I loved all the characters. Such a great story!

Turning 30 has never been so fun!

Crafting Love by A E Gamrat is the first book in the Wine & Furniture series. This is a new to me author and I didn’t know what to expect. I throughly enjoyed this book. It was well written and had a great plot. The characters were all great and there was only one I really didn’t like and it was totally justified.

Kelly and Kirk so deserve to be happy. They have both been hurt in the past and have a hard time with trust. There were several parts I liked but I think her birthday party was probably my favorite of all.

I plan on keeping up with this series, I need to know what happens with not only Kelly and Kirk but Grace and Grant.

My rating: 5 out of 5 stars

This book was such a sweet story. First I loved how the main character of Kelly was into crafting, it was refreshing to see something new regarding the jobs of the characters. Second I loved that the story was filled with drama, romance and laughter.

Kelly is such a great character. She is a strong, independent and hard working woman. She loves her life even though she is constantly busy and she loves her friends and family. When she meets Kirk she instantly feels a connection with him, but due to a bad previous relationship she is very wary and will not tolerate any lying. Kirk is a wonderful, he has moved in with his cousin Grant due to some issues back in his hometown and is just looking to settle down and live a quiet life with no drama. When he meets Kelly, the same thing goes through his mind, he feels a connections with her and instantly falls in love.

Both Kelly and Kirk are honest and open with each other but both have secrets about their pasts that they are not openly ready to share. When a terrible girl, Sonnie, calls Kirk out at Kelly’s 30th birthday, the secrets all come to light and both characters need to work out if they think they can truly make a relationship between them work.

The secondary characters are amazing as well. Grace is Kelly’s best friend since preschool, they have been through a lot together but she sometimes gets on my nerves. It seems as though she can’t seem to see the evil in certain people, and takes some of her anger out on Kelly, which is uncalled for. Grant is Grace’s boyfriend and Kirk’s cousin. He has pretty much adopted Kelly into his life as his sister and their relationship is solid. Daisy and Delilah are Kelly’s bosses at work and provide much need comic relief, and seem like such sweet people to know. I would highly recommend this book!

This was a great novel it completely drew me in right from the first page I just couldn’t set it down. I enjoyed the quirky, creative storyline but with alot of depth and emotions running through the pages also. I was captivated by the words and I felt like I was there along side the character’s, it really took me away from reality while reading this novel I highly enjoyed it and I certainly can’t wait to read more from this author.

Crafting Love is the first book in the Wine & Furniture Series by A. E. Gamrat. This is first book I have read by A. E. Gamrat and I enjoyed her writing style. The book is a simple story that makes you feel like you are in the story with the characters. Even though I am not a fan of wine, but I think I could start drinking it now. The story is a story of Kelly and Kirk. Kelly is a lonely young woman who works for her friends in the wine and furniture store. She doesn’t like to be alone and she keeps busy at night. Until she met Kirk, who just happens to be a hottie handyman. Kelly has a lot going on in her life but cannot ignore feelings that are coming to the surface. Will there be a relationship formed? Will others accept the relationship or will there be people who do not want Kelly want her to be with Kirk?
