Paige and the Reluctant Artist by Darci Garcia
She doesn’t like anything about him. Well, maybe a few things…
English aristocrat Bella Orstwell thought helping get her abusive Russian mafia boyfriend arrested would be the end her troubles. It isn’t. Because even though she’s been whisked off to parts unknown to hide out until the trial, she now has to pretend to be the housekeeper to the Delaney Brothers and nanny to their kid sister. And then there’s Levi, one gorgeous bully of a cowboy tasked with protecting her. He might be in charge of her safety, but if he thinks she’s going to follow his every order without question, he’s in for a rude awakening…
Levi Delaney does not need a babysitting gig. Helping raise his orphaned kid sister and running the ranch with his brothers keeps him plenty busy. But an ex-Navy SEAL never turns down a call from an old friend—which is how he found himself in charge of keeping the annoyingly lovely Bella safe. Now, if only he could find a way to keep her quiet that didn’t involve kissing her—or falling for her…
Bella is shaping up to be a real pain in Levi’s behind, not the least the way his brothers keep falling over themselves when she’s around. But he gave his word that he’d keep her safe and that’s exactly what he plans to do. One small problem, the more she fights him, the more he finds her getting under his skin.
After the trauma of Dmitri, Bella just wants to survive, but is that enough? There’s something about her wounded hero that makes her want to heal him. Not that he wants to let anyone in close enough to do that. But he hasn’t dealt with her before.
Can these polar opposites overcome the demons of their pasts and find common ground on the road to happily ever after? Only if he can keep her alive that long…
Edith Mackenzie is a new author for me and boy oh boy! An amazing writer that gave us such a wholesome book! I cried, I laughed, I felt joy and sorrow. A story that has you hoping for the end you wish for! This book was so well written. I can’t say whether it is a part of a series or not but I didn’t feel like I was missing anything so you can dive right in! Get your tissues, your blanket and cozy up because this is the perfect novel to lose yourself in for a while! She has a writing style and ability to make you feel like a fly on the wall feeling the heavy emotions that we are reading about and it was a rollercoaster I didn’t want to get off. Well done!
Grief and healing
This is a slow burn clean romance that deals with tragedy and the fall out that follows. The author handles it realistically and with sensitivity. This book has all the feels. Colt and Evelyn are a mature couple and are very confident within themselves. I enjoyed this book, reading way past my bedtime. It draws you in and doesn’t let go. A worthy read.
This book took me on such an emotional roller coaster ride. Colt has been through more tragedy in his life so far than anyone should ever have to face. Evelyn is someone that he’s been friends with since they were kids and tragedy brings them together once again. There are so many twists and turns in this book. I teared up so many times at the unfairness of it all but the ending was so sweet that it made it worth all of the emotions. This is a book you definitely won’t want to miss but make sure you have a box of tissues nearby.
You’ve heard it said that money can’t buy (fill-in-the-blank). Well, in the case of Colt, that’s definitely true. He’s loaded with money…has more than he knows what to do with, but it won’t stop the tragedies from occurring in his life.
I don’t feel like I can give anymore details about this book other than the description provided because I don’t want to spoil it for anyone. However, this is your warning: You’ll need a box of tissues handy. This story is riveting and tragic, yet full of so much love!!
I don’t have a super high opinion of Colt. He’s very selfish and greedy. I like Evelyn but there’s something about her that I can’t wrap my head around. Not sure what it is but she’s a very likeable person. I’m curious to know more about her background though.
This is another new-to-me author that I will reading again! I do recommend this book! It’s a fairly clean, wholesome romance story.

All I can saw about this book is wow. Personally I have never read this author before but after reading this one I am definitely a fan. While this book was amazing, I should warn you to have a box of tissues handy, I think I might have cried a river when I read this book. Colt will not only steal your breath away when he’s introduced but he will also steal your heart. Full of pain, grief, love, and so much more I just simply couldn’t put it down.
Colt has had a lot of heartbreak in his life. He has always been the one to pick up the pieces but can he get himself together enough to pick up those pieces this time? Time is supposed to heal the heart but Colt is not too sure that will happen and doesn’t want to be in that space.
Evelyn is a long-time friend who has gone through a lot of the same heartbreak with Colt but where will this take them in the end?
Edith MacKenzie is a new author to me but wow does she have a way to make you feel you are right there with the characters and makes you feel those same feelings. Book hangover in the works.
Great book that will give you all the feels. It’s full of tragedy, grief and love! I love how the author painted the picture of each character and allow you into their lives. Love will always prevail of angry and disappointment. Overall great love story!
You looking for a book that might rip your heart to shreds but then slowly put it back together? Look no further because this book did just that to me. I didn’t know I was looking for a book to bring me to tears and to my knees with all the feels but that’s just what I got. Every single character in this book is a main character in a way and that was a refreshing thing to see. As mentioned it’s an emotional read but one I truly think everyone should read. You will immediately be drawn in and connect with the characters. You will clearly see all emotions the author injected into this incredible story. It’s well written and will stay in your heart for a while I promise you that. Five big stars and highly recommended.
