Could. Not. Put. Down. Yes it is THAT good.

I am currently sitting here at 2am in the morning writing this review because honestly plain and simple it deserves it.
This book is completely different to your 'normal' love story. I love the way this book is written and yes after you read this you WILL have another book boyfriend to add to your lists ;)
Oscar is the complete package but the way he has so much patience and understanding for Hale it just makes you melt even more.

Congratulations Misty, he really is drool worthy in every way <3

Sometimes you read a book and the story is so intriguing, the characters so realistic, and the events so vivid that, when all is said and done, you feel like a piece of yourself is missing. That book, for me, is Provencher’s beautifully written Hale Maree. Captivating from the get go, I found myself so engrossed in the story that I truly feel like I know Hale and Oscar—they’re more than just characters in a story—they’ve become friends. I truly feel like I know them as well as I know myself, and while the going was tough and their relationship was touch and go in the beginning, watching them grow together and fall irrevocably in love with one another was absolute beauty.

Provencher is a master storyteller, enchanting readers with her words and characters, and I absolutely adored everything about Hale Maree, with its realistic portrayal of humanity and its swoon-worthy, often humorous events. Of course, Oscar is my absolute favorite, and I found myself wishing numerous times that he’d pick me since Hale was so dead set against him. And yet, I am no match for Hale. She, too, swept me off my feet with her level head, fierce determination, and all around good soul. This is a beautiful happily-ever-after that has remained with me since I read the very last page; and I already cannot wait to read it again.

Filled with romance, snark, and even a little bit of mystery, this novel is indeed a must read for those who love contemporary romance. While a little hot and heavy in some scenes, overall it is a beautiful testament to human nature and love at its finest. Hale Maree is a gem that I highly recommend for those looking for a lighthearted, fun read. Five amazing stars.

Hale is a young girl who finds herself in an impossible situation. A day that started out like any other day ended with her finding out that her father had arranged for her to marry the son of an old friend in exchange for protection and a new business. Her father sees this as a chance for to have a better life while Hale sees it as something totally different.

The twists and turns that take place have to come from a place in Misty's brain that scares me just a little. Who comes up with this stuff?

I truly enjoyed reading this book. The book is written well, and I adore the characters (especially Oscar!); I was frustrated with Hale on a few occasions, but considering all that she went through, I cannot blame her for some of her reactions.

This was my first Misty Provencher book, but it will not be my last.

This book is sensational but after reading the Cornerstone series I've come to expect nothing but the best from Misty. The synopsis of the book gives you enough details so I'm not going to elaborate. However, I have to tell you that you will not be able to resist Oscar. He is everything, and more, and just like Hale, you will fall in love with him. The story is fresh, entertaining, and it will stay in your heart for many years to come. Congratulations Misty. You have extraordinary talent.

When Hale overhears a conversation between her drunk father and his equally drunk friend she cannot believe her ears. Her life will never be the same. Not that she wants more of the same. An only child raised by her alcoholic father after her mother left, her life has been a hard road to say the least. Now all she has to do is agree to the arranged marriage her father wants and she will never have to worry about money again. But is it worth it?

Oscar is fiercely loyal to his family. Can he give up his girlfriend and marry Maree as his father wants him too? Can he convince her that being married is not the most horrible thing to ever happen? These two have a hard road ahead of them as it is, now add the psycho biatch to mix and the sparks are going to fly! This book is funny, enchanting, and a bit on the sexy side. Hale is sassy, sweet and has a mind of her own. Oscar is smart, sexy and determined. Watch the sparks fly and the drama unfold as these two decide if they have a future together.

<blockquote> “Hale?” Oscar's voice sends a quiver down both my legs and back up, meeting in places that shouldn't tingle just because a guy, who has a girlfriend, says my name. “Hi,” I say. I'm about to ask if he left something in the truck when he cuts me off. “ I was wondering,” he says. “if you's meet me at the coffee shop tonight?” My brain trips over my pounding heart. Did my dad tell him on the ride back to his house? Oscar's voice is so weirdly calm, I'm not sure he knows yet, so I play along. “Sure, I'll meet you. Are you bringing Sophia?” I ask. He puffs an I've-been-called- out breath on the other end. “I was thinking I'd leave her home tonight.” “Probably not a good idea, Oscar,” I try to joke. “You are loyal, remember?” “I am”, he sighs, “ but if you are going to be my wife, I guess that trumps any loyalty I have to a girlfriend, now doesn't it” </blockquote>
