Book Description

A secret crush. Two wounded hearts. A sizzling tale of love, hope and redemption.

No stranger to loss, Tami Morrelle is holding on with one satiny thread to the only thing she has left that ties her to her loved ones – the family bridal shop.

Local bad boy Daniel Ramsey is back in town and on a mission – to turn Tami’s world upside down – any way he can.

Daniel needs Tami’s beachfront home and business to complete his crowning achievement as a successful developer. His latest proposal hinges on buying former high school classmate Tami’s land to make it happen. More importantly, it will show those in Loving who were convinced he’d amount to less than nothing they were dead wrong about him.

For Daniel, it’s Loving or nothing. For Tami, selling out to Daniel will leave her with nothing. But when the ruthless developer and sentimental bridal shop owner clash, sparks fly.

A secret crush. Two wounded hearts. Will Daniel and Tami be willing to give up what they think they need and open their hearts to what really matters in Loving?

(Includes bonus short story, "Accidental Love.")

Editorial Reviews

Review

4 Cups from CBLS Reviews:

"Daniel and Tami are lovely characters and their plight with their pasts are believable and it is a nice pleasant journey they go on together to find love. Neither trust their new found feelings in the beginning and it's only as time progresses do, they work through and accept the changes within themselves....

"Overall, Loving or Nothing is a sweet and tender romance mixed with some intense love scenes."

5.0 out of 5 stars Very sweet romance! November 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoyed this story. Very reminiscent of the older Harlequins where characterization was key and sex was off screen. Another great read from Ms. Marsi!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Loving or Nothing September 10, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This sweet reunion story sparks tempers as much as passions. Tami finds it unthinkable that she might lose the beach house her parents left her. But Daniel, a boy she knew years ago, rides in and wants to take that last link to her parents away. Seeing him again, her undeniable attraction to him is a force of it's own. And Daniel has had a thing for Tami since high school. I loved how this story progressed, I thought it was a lovely read.

I also enjoyed the other story called Accidental Love.

This book was enjoyable. I loved the characters right from the beginning. Second chance romances always tug at my heart and this story did not disappoint me. Cara Marsi did an excellent job with this sweet romance.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well-Written but Predictable December 19, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a quick, pleasant read. It's also written (and edited) very well. That was a pleasant change from some of the Kindle books I've experienced. The author obviously puts a lot of effort into good writing technique.

For me, the downside was that it was such a familiar and predictable plot. The characters were just what I expected, and so were the events of the story. I kept hoping for a little twist here or there, but there really weren't any surprises along the way.

I'd read another book by this author, because her writing is so crisp. I'll just be hoping for a little more complexity and a touch of the unexpected.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delightful read March 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Because I once lived in New Jersey and knew the areas well Ms. Marsi described, it was like a homecoming to read "Loving or Nothing". Vivid descriptions lent a 3-D background to a heartfelt story of two deserving, well-written characters who reunite and find love. I felt for Tami's struggle to stay afloat and keep her grandmother's home filled with cherished memories, and loved how Daniel's character grew the more he came to care for Tami. The ending twist in this enjoyable read gives a satisfying Happy Ever After. I gave it 4 stars, only because I wish it was longer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short and sweet August 3, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Short and sweet, just the way I like my books. The book actually contains two short - the second shorter than the first - stories.

The first story, Loving or Nothing, was a sweet story of the former high school bad boy returning to his home town to prove he has not only changed, but deserves respect. The girl he had always secretly attracted to since high school, had the property he required to go forward with his big development project. Only problem, she did not want to sell, and, although attracted to him, she did not trust him, or any man. Can they overcome prior baggage and make a life together?

The second, very short, story was also about a girl previously done wrong, with trust issues.

Quick read. Written for the general market. PG13 for content.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet and Loving March 9, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
You Can’t go wrong by choosing a book by Cara Marsi!
These are 3 sweet stories that you feel at the end of each story. The first two stories mention and take place in PA which is kind of cool because that is where I am from and I recognized the well know places and could relate to the small town feel. The first stories the main characters are connected by knowing each other in high school They all had secret crushes on one another at that time, they cross paths again in their adults lives and well love blooms but its not easy but all ends well. The third story the characters have heart break in common and are brought together by a little of magic. P.S. you will love the sample of A Catered Romance.
