Synopsis –

Kara

All I want is one last summer of fun with my best friend, Toby.

Blue Oaks Theme Park seems like a perfect place to work while blowing off some steam. It’s our last summer before university and we want to make every day count. The thing I didn’t consider was being attracted to my new boss.

But it’s just one summer. One quick fling. What harm can it do?

Bear

Returning home is something I can’t avoid. My dad wants me to start getting serious about my future, while I want to spend the summer teaching kids skateboarding.

As always, he gets his own way, but when a cute brunette – literally – knocks me off my feet, I’m finding the theme park interesting in a whole new way.

A summer romance. Totally insubstantial. I can handle that. Right?

Two people brought together by chance. Both finding something they don’t know they need. A sweet romance about finding a home in the heart.

REBECCA STEELE FINDING A DREAM (REBECCA STEELE SERIES BOOK 2) by JOANNE PATTERSON – Review by Jennifer Gordon

Rebecca Steele Finding the Dream (Rebecca Steele Series #2)Rebecca Steele Finding the Dream by Joanne Patterson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

We first meet Becky Steele in ‘Rebecca Steele Chasing a Dream’, but although this is the second book in the ‘Rebecca Steele Series’ it can be read as a standalone story. I read it having not read the previous book and I thoroughly enjoyed it and then had to read the first book as well having fallen in love with Becky.
Becky now rides horses and lives on a ranch outside Nashville, her life is definitely different to when she was flying on airplanes. Becky is not only making her name for herself within her country music career but she is also taking the Tennessee rodeo circuit by storm. Best friend Emily is by her side sharing Becky’s new adventure with her. Just as Becky decides that she is happier than she’s ever been and is determined to enjoy her new life, out of the blue she is thrown a curve, a big one. Knowing that the decisions she makes will not only effect her life but those closest to her Becky need to decide whether she will take a chance.
I love Becky as a character as she has such a friendly, loving personality and is also independent and courageous and she is not afraid to go for what she wants in life. I found her relatable as a character and like that she shows her vulnerability at times, especially when she has to face her fears. Emily is a great best friend and I love the dialogue between the two of them. The storyline had plenty to keep me turning the pages, drama, suspense, romance and intrigue along with enough twists and turns that kept me guessing. I was cheering Becky on throughout this story as she worked toward attaining and living her dreams.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Matchmaker and The Marine: A Second Chance Small-Town Romance by Lucinda Race is a brilliant book with such strong and captivating characters. I loved the connection between Melinda and Adam, it has such a sweet beginning and blossomed into so much more.
I thought the author had a great balance between some deep, emotional topics and the sweet romantic story. Both had their place and both felt like they worked in this book. It was so nice to see the friendship between the 2 characters develop, and then develop into more.
This was my first book by this author and I was impressed with her writing style and how she draws the reader in. This is a fantastic book and one I would highly recommend.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rebecca Steele is a upcoming Country Star, come on the adventure and see what happens next.

I loved this is story it was just a sweet felt coming of age story as Becky’s career in both music and the rodeo takes off she is navigated through the pit falls, surprises and good friends she meets along the way. When she is dealt a curve ball will she be able to overcome this and more forward.

I had not read the first story but feel that this can be read as a standalone story, you find Becky a well rounded woman who finds she has to overcome a fear and loved how you follow her through the book as though you are part of the story. I think the story was well written and the character where well developed. This is the first story I have read by this author and would love to read more.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

REBECCA STEELE FINDING THE DREAM (REBECCA STEELE SERIES Book 2) by Joanne Patterson is a sweet and fun romance story. It took me a little bit to warm and settle in but I did enjoy it. It is a quick read and the twist at the end, I didn’t see coming. There are times when the story is a little emotional, heartbreaking and heartfelt at the same time.

Rebecca Steele left her boring life behind to follow the rodeo circuit and thus begins her way into country music. Just when things seem to be going well for her she is thrown a curveball. Now, if she can learn to overcome her fears she may just get her HEA.

The Matchmaker and The Marine: A Second Chance Small-Town RomanceThe Matchmaker and The Marine: A Second Chance Small-Town Romance by Lucinda Race
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Matchmaker and The Marine: A Second Chance Small-Town Romance by Lucinda Race is a beautifully written romance novel that I didn’t want to end! Melinda Phillips is the town matchmaker who has a great track record, many of her couples have ended up marrying each other. However, she has sworn never to date again after losing her husband so she strives to find true love for her clients. That is until she encounters the most handsome Marine at a client’s wedding. Adam Bell is a retired Marine due to an injury he got while serving. Not only did he end up losing his leg but his girlfriend couldn’t cope with his new norm and left him. Adam can’t help but feel that if he lets anyone know his secret they will take pity on him. As a friendship begins between Melinda and Adam, they can’t help but wonder if they are each other’s second chance at happiness. This novel was so refreshing to read. The friendship that was created between Melinda and Adam was so innocent and sweet yet such a struggle. They learned to accept the past and move forward with their new lives. It was such a heartwarming novel to read that I truly didn’t want it to end. This was a romance novel that wasn’t full of sexy scenes and dirty talk, and honestly, I didn’t miss it one bit.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

These types of stories always send me on the best possible emotional rollercoaster. Race does a fantastic job setting the stage for a beautiful story. I was immediately invested, rooting for the main characters to find a way. Because at the end, aren’t we all looking for our own HEA? This played to my romantic heart with a foot kept firmly in reality. I had a hard time putting this down and simply wanted to spend more time with these characters. Beautiful book.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Matchmaker Melinda is exceptional at her job in the town of Chester where she’s coupled almost everybody around. As a widower, she aspires to help everyone find the love she’s experienced with her late husband. She’s protecting her own heart by being one and done with marriage after the loss.
Adam is a retired marine who has great pain from the war and his heart is no exception to being bruised and battered so he strives to protect it. Melinda opens a part of him he’d thought had died and brightens his outlook on life.
Melinda hires the marine as a carpenter to create a pergola in her backyard while he’s now open to what services she provides but there’s a friendship developing between the two. The only problem is will they bypass their past to create a future together?
This story was sweet in the best ways. I loved how their chemistry was natural. Great characters with steamy and romantic interests made this book an easy read which I could not put down. This book makes you believe in love again and shows it’s okay to put your heart on the table for love.
