I so enjoyed the push and pull in this story between Lilly and Jake. Both have reasons to be how they are but sometimes it’s worth taking a chance again. The chemistry between these two was felt so strong and rightfully so. I love a book that can make me laugh as well as feel all the range of emotions. Must read!

When Lily moves to Montana from London to take over her father’s store after he has passed, the first person she meets is Jake. These two seem to have an undeniable chemistry but also seem to push all the buttons from the past. Can she move past her fears that he will abandon her? Can he prove to her that she is all he wants? I can’t wait for the next book in this series. I just want to visit Bluestone again and again.

Love Tools (Bluestone Series #1) by Isobel Reed

This is the first book I’ve read by the author. Love Tools is an amazing first read. The author has a way with the words written. I finished this within an hour so that should say something. This is the first book in the Bluestone Series.

Jake goes in to check on the store his friend owned when he was alive. He runs into someone new to him. He’s shocked to learn that his friend was a dad and his daughter is hot. The quote I chose for Jake is: “Um, he was a good guy. Quiet. Liked to keep himself to himself, but he had a good heart.”

Lily moved to where her dad lived to find out who he was. She didn’t expect to run into someone on her first day in town. Montana does their guys right. She doesn’t know how to react to him. The quote I chose for Lily is: “You have a dad, Ali, a real dad. I have a stepdad and a dead biological father who left and never said why. If you were me, wouldn’t you want answers?”

Highly recommended for Contemporary Romance lovers.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This novel follows the story of Lily, on her quest for the truth of her past and new beginnings. After she learns of her father’s passing, she learns that she has inherited his tool store in Bluestone County, Montana. Even though she has no clue about selling tools or business, a new beginning from her London upbringing sounds quite appealing. She ends up connecting with Jake and his sister, Sam, who own a nearby Dude Ranch. Sam invites her to their ranch to learn firsthand tools to help her with her new business endeavor while Jake starts developing an attraction towards Lily. After Lily’s many failed relationships, she seems a bit hesitant on Jake’s advances and shies away from any of his attempts.
Reed has such an immediate way of writing to enthrall her readers into this great story. It is such an enjoyable and quick read that readers can fall in love with the characters and story line presented. When it comes to romance, attraction comes into play when there is something eager to be known about those you are attracted to.

When Lily’s dad died and left her his hardware store in Bluestone County it could have come at a better time. Lily didn’t have any regrets about leaving London for Bluestone. However, Lily had no clue how to run a hardware store she needed to make it herself. She needed to find herself and find the answers as to why her dad had left. The last thing Lily needed was to fall in love with a local cowboy, let alone her new best friend’s brother.
Jake was the local ranch owner. Hot, steamy, and a bad idea. Jake had a bad reputation with the ladies and her best friend’s brother. But Jake might actually have the answers to some of her questions about her dad. Jake’s past will come back to haunt him causing Lily to run.
This was a great read. I truly enjoyed this read. The big city girl falls for the country cowboy, what better storyline! I can’t wait to read the next book in this set!

Miserably unhappy, Lilly, a young lady from London, moves to the states to takeover a tool shop that was left to her after a father she barely knew passed away. In a search to connect and discover more about her father she discovered Jake who is more than willing to give her the answers she seeks. Jake, a playboy cowboy who runs a ranch with his sister doesn’t quite know if he’s experiencing love for the first time or if what he is feeling is something else. Love Tools was a quick, sweet, fun romance that I was delighted to read. I read it in about two days only stopping because of adult responsibilities and I didn’t have a choice. I definitely didn’t want to put it down. It looks like this might be a series and I would be interested in reading more by this author.

Love Tools is a romance story about a lost girl, Lily,  from London who tries to rediscover herself in Bluestone County, USA. Lily’s estranged father left her his hardware store to run. Lily wasn’t happy in London lately so the change came at a good time. As she is trying to adjust to her new life in a small town, she runs into a gorgeous, cocky cowboy named Jake. There is an instant banter that stirs, but there is no denying the attraction they have for each other. They are forced to become closer when she befriends his sister. However, Jake has a reputation of a playboy who can’t commit so is warned to stay away. Due to her never running a business, she runs into a little bit of trouble and Jale offers to help. This is the start of a brewing romance. However, can the two of them figure out their own baggage to appreciate the connection they have found?

I enjoyed this romance novel. Both characters were very loveable. They had great banter and chemistry. She was portrayed as a strong independent woman trying to find her way, while Jake was the cowboy gentleman with an edge. The build of the romance seemed natural, not rushed, and really developed on the page. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

I really enjoyed this romance story. The author does an amazing job with the characters and I really enjoyed how at the start Lily and Jake seemed to hate each other but the teasing and barbs they threw at each other was all building up to an attraction that neither of them could deny.

Lily changed her whole life,leaving her family behind to take over a tool shop her father left her when he passed. She has nothing to lose, she hates her job and her dating life is non existent as she always attracts the wrong guys.
What she doesn’t expect is to meet a guy and not just any guy. Jake is a guy with so many red flags she should run in the opposite direction screaming.

Jake has never had a serious relationship. He’s known as a bit of a ladies man and he’s happy with that. Until he meets Lily. He’s never felt about a woman the way he does about Lily but how can he prove to her that he is the man for her and not the womaniser she thinks him to be.

This is a slow burn romance where the attraction is there but both Lily and Jake need to work through their past relationships and pains to be able to full let the other person in. Their connection is fun to read as they constantly push and pull each other.

Lily needed a fresh start after she became stuck in a rut in London. Her father’s passing and leaving her a business was her perfect excuse to start over. With so much on her plate between her move, her mother, and starting a store, she never bargained for a man like Jake. The love story between the two kept me engaged and wanting to know more about their lives with and without each other. Most women want to find a man like Jake who will turn his life around just to be with her. I’m so excited to see the rest of what Isobel has in store for us in upcoming books.

Jake and Lily are both trying to find their way and making amends with their troubled pasts.

Lily is not going anywhere in her miserable life in London. Her estranged father left her a little hardware shop in Bluestone, Montana. Lily wants to make the store successful and learn more about her deceased father.
Jake is a local cowboy who has always said ‘no’ to love. He’s content with life on the ranch.

Love Tools is an emotional roller coaster of romance, heartbreak, and drama in a rural romance. I loved both Jake and Lily. This story is an easy read with great characters.

I am not always big fan of romances but when I do indulge, I love a small town story. This book checked off all the boxes with it’s witty banter and fast paced storyline. I really like the friendly foundation that the two main characters laid down. There was more to this story than cute, romantic tropes including an element of family complexities. In addition to really enjoying both the main female and male characters, I enjoyed the supporting characters as well. No one came off we flat or dull, everyone had fun personalities that felt as though you could know them personally. I would definitely recommend Love Tools and look forward to reading more from Isobel Reed.

A fun romance between a gal from London and a guy in a small Montana town.

Lily has just moved in to the hardware store (with an apartment on the 2nd floor she inherited from her estranged father. The first person she meets is Jake, a friend of Lily’s father.

From the start when Lily and Jake meet and things go a bit askew. But soon enough, each of them realizes that the other is different from past boyfriends or girlfriends. Of course it takes time because there are other things to consider – Sam, Lily’s only friend who happens to be Jake’s sister.

I had fun reading this book. The author did a wonderful job keeping the story going which kept me interested in reading more. The characters were easy to connect with and I could feel the pain and frustration Lily had about her father’s abandonment and also surprise in finding out he left the hardware store to her.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was such a cute fun read that mentioned topics that other romance books have not mentioned before, giving it a new meaning and something, that people can enjoy. The main character, Lily, has just been told that her father has died, and he left her a tool shop in his will on the other side of the world. Needing to escape the area she is living, due to not liking the area/people she is surrounded by, she packs up her things and moves looking for a fresh start. Here in this small town, she meets friends and develops a love interest named Jake. Both of these characters grow and learn through instances that surround them that they both have in common, a parent leaving and not returning due to different circumstances. While this was a slow burn read w/o explicit scenes, I found myself not able to put this book down as I had to know what was to happen next! I cannot wait to read the second book in the series when it comes out as her sister is the main character and was a straight up SPIT FIRE in this one. I have no doubt that it will be just as good if not better than this one!

This book feels like a Hallmark movie in a good way! Love Tools is a story about Lily, who moves from London to Bluestone when her father dies. She decides to reopen her father’s hardware store and meets Jake along the way. Jake is a player but decides that he wants to settle down with Lily right when she suddenly can’t decide what she wants. These two have very cute interactions. It was a very fun read and I really enjoyed both characters. This is the first book in the Bluestone Series and I very much look forward to reading the next book.

Escaping a dull and boring life to take over her late father’s hardware store Lily departs London for a small town in Montana. It wasn’t meant to last forever, only temporary stay. One where she can focus on getting the store running while swearing off men. Jake, a local stud seen as a womanizer without a commitment bone for a long term relationship in his body, is actually looking for more. This new girl in town has sparked his interest and now he just needs her to see the spark in him too.

The developing relationship that befalls between these two characters will keep you reading. Will they survive the bumps along the way? What ending is in store for Lily whose sworn off relationships and Jake who wants the real deal?

This was my first read by this author, but not the last. A wonderful story packed into a short read. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

When Lily’s dad leaves her his shop, she figures it is a way to escape city life and find answers as to why her dad left and never came back all those years ago. What she doesn’t expect (or want) to find is Jake…and handsome rancher who knew her dad. Lily has always been attracted to guys that break her heart, so she is determined to keep Jake at bay. Jake, however…is not one to follow directions.

When Jake meets Lily, there are sparks right away. He wants to pursue her…but his sister thinks his reputation of never having a long-term relationship means he is incapable of love. Sure…he hasn’t been in love…but it doesn’t mean he can’t. He wants to give Lily the space and time she needs, but he just can’t stay away. However, a miscommunication puts all progress the two have in jeopardy. Will she accept his apology after her proved her insecurities to be true?

There are two storylines going on in this book. There is Lily and Jake’s relationship…and Lily finding out the truth about her father. Both are interesting and I enjoyed reading them. I like Sam and Ali’s characters, and was excited to see the next book is about Alice. Overall, a good story that reminds us that we may be shaped by our pasts…but it doesn’t define us or our futures.

This is a great contemporary romance that I really enjoyed reading. I hadn’t read any of this author’s work before and I was really pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed reading this story.
Lily has moved from the hustle and bustle of London, a city with a population of over 8 million people to live in small town Bluestone County. Jake has lived in Bluestone County all his life and is a true country boy at heart. Lily is sworn off dating the same loser types she’s always dated and Jake is a known womaniser, the opposite of what she wants. It’s definitely not a case of love at first sight. In fact, Lily seriously dislikes Jake at their first meeting.
I really enjoyed reading Jake and Lily’s story. The banter between them makes for some fun reading as they bicker over the slightest thing, pushing each other’s buttons.
Lily and Jake are both great characters that I really enjoyed reading about. They are both characters that you can easily relate to and I could have read about them for much longer.
All in all this is a great read that I’d definitely recommend to others.

Love Tools is a sweet romance story with a happy ending. I really enjoyed the story, and loved both main characters as well as the supporting siblings. Lily left England and moved to a small town in the US, after inheriting a hardware/tool store. Jake is a cowboy who lives on a ranch with his sister, and is a smart a$$ but also very sweet. There are parts that made me laugh out loud, and others that had me saying awwww. I enjoyed the tidbits about Lily getting to know her dad, after he passed, as well as Jake giving his mom a second chance. Their love story, while a bit predictable, was sweet and funny. I am looking forward to the next book, because Alice seems to be even more of a firecracker than Lily.
