Ashley’s 4.5-🛍🛍🛍🛍🛍 Review
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!!!

Ashley’s 5-🛍🛍🛍🛍🛍 Review
Book: Falling Completely
Author: Aidan Willows
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Series: Starling Falls, #1
This was a new author to me and I’m completely shocked by her writing. Wonderful debut novel by Aidan Willows. Sexually charged, quirky and laugh out loud moments all rolled into one.
Maliya follows her sister when she wants to move across the Atlantic Ocean to run her estranged great aunt’s bakery. Liya, who works as a nurse, has no idea how to bake but she comes along to support her sister. On the day of the grand re-opening of the bakery Liya has to put her skills as a nurse to the test when a man pushes a boy out from a car and subsequently gets hit by the car. The man is Caleb Jameson and sparks fly from the first, calling her “angel” and then he kisses her.
Caleb, who is a fireman, knows almost from the start that Maliya is the one for him. But Liya is anti-relationships so she and Caleb come to the decision to be friends with benefits. That lasts for a while until Caleb wants more. When Caleb gets hurt on the job Liya just knows her “curse” is rearing it’s ugly head again. Will they stay together or will Liya’s unwillingness to let love in stand in her way?
Absolutely love this story. Can’t wait to see how Nikki and Jake’s story plays out.
