Title: Run (Lakefield Book 1)
Author: Jennifer Vester
Genre: romance, contemporary romance, romantic suspense
I really enjoyed this book. Liv was finally living her life with her best friend Julia after a horrible and traumatic college relationship. She makes a stop to eat dinner and sees Aiden sitting in a business meeting at the table across from her. The attraction is instant for both. Of course Liv decides to run from it. Aiden chases her down to return her forgotten phone. And so the hilarious and suspenseful story starts. Liv and Aiden were perfect. They were absolutely perfect for each other. Aiden is take charge and in control of every aspect of his life. Liv is a book worm, foul mothed, crazy quirky lady. She was always pushing his limits and the banter back and forth is hilarious. I had quite a few laugh out loud moments. The very real danger Liv was in from her stalker had me turning pages to see what would happen next. The story was very well written and the side characters were amazing and so funny at time. I finished this story very quickly. I couldn’t put it down (even while at work)! Definitely 5 stars and I can’t wait to start on Julia’s book!

Book: Falling Sweetly
Author: Aidan Willows
Genre: Romantic Comedy/ Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 19, 2016
Series: Starling Falls #2
I am an absolute fan of Ms. Willows. I love how her characters are so relatable. I could picture myself as Annika with all of her insecurities and understated strength.
Annika (Nikki) Abbot is a shy pastry chef who inherited a bakery after her great aunt dies. She doesn’t have the self confidence to go after any man and she has major self doubts. Nikki has an awkwardness about her that is so endearing to me.
Jacob (Jake) Jameson is the head chef at a fine dining restaurant. He wants Nikki, but she’s been avoiding him like the plague since the New Years party. When Jake get a devastating review from the fine dining reviewer his world slowly starts to fall apart.
Jake with the help of Nikki start on a joint adventure to help Jake open up a family-style restaurant. But then disaster strikes. From sabotage to vandalism, will Jake ever be able to open the restaurant?
If you are looking for a heartwarming story this is the one. I highly recommend this book!!!
