I've been reading romance stories, since, well, since I've been too young to read them. They are a great way to spend a few lost hours, and Reluctant Romance definitely fit the category of an enjoyable time spent dreaming about that perfect guy. The plot had everything I needed to keep me interested and still the ending had a nice twist to it. Looking forward to read more of these soon!

This makes the 4th book of this author that I have read and I have LOVED each and every one of them. I am always amazed at how an author can get so much into a smaller book.

Risa Kennedy and Connor Dunn are adult children of 2 rich widowers who own their own businesses. Risa and Connor lived a few houses away from each other when they were kids. Connor had a crush on her. Shall we call it an unrequited teen love? Hmm... Connor's father has agreed to buy out Risa's father's company so that her father can do some traveling and develop his golf game. Connor has been sent to check out the company, where Risa has been CEO, to ensure it is worth buying. The events that happen from this point are both comical, romantic, and sad, all rolled into one.

This is a great story with a well planned and written storyline. The characters are believable.
For those who worry about sex scenes. there is only one that and this one actually gets interrupted by both fathers calling their respective child on their cells.

I recommend this book highly.

This book was a free download and as happy as I am that I didn't have to pay for it I am so sorry I wasted my time. I really didn't want to finish but I felt like I couldn't leave an honest review without reading to the end. So here are some of my issues... (spoilers) The guy sees the girl with ONE martini one night and then the next night, while she's out with friends, he sees her with ONE bloody mary and automatically assumes she's an alcoholic. Now mind you he's been drinking beer both nights as well and still makes this assumption. And all we hear from her is how much she never drinks. In the meantime she's being completely deceptive to him about her company. Even though she was not completely right by lying I felt like he was just an a@@. He thought the worst of her throughout the entire book minus the last few pages when he was suddenly in love with her. If I were her I would have told him to stick it where the sun don't shine and move on to greener pastures. It was just really childish and I deleted it from my kindle as soon as I finished it.

I have read the entire Lexie Baker series and when this one popped up as a recommendation, I grabbed it. This was a nice little romance book with a very good plot line. Unlike the other cozies I read, this had no murder and the main character was actually very believable. Of course, I always love the pet references. Thanks Leighann for a fresh read.

I didn't like all the assumptions being made between the main characters and I found myself not liking Risa. I love the author's other books but this one fell flat for me.

This being the first book I have read from this author, I have to say... for being a short story, it is quite likable.

With that in mind, some people will have an issue with the more deep character development. Our hero and heroine past stories that shaped them into people that have serious trust issues were really not explained. We did at least know their names, but really.... what did Francesca do to Connor that was so awful to make him relationship-shy as well as Ethan's act that made Risa fearful of having another relationship?

Along with the story moving rather quickly, there were a few typos that had me stop and think what the word was supposed to be. Quite light on the sizzle, not really full of sexual tension, and the ending was far too quick, but really.... this was a short story so there was not all that much to complain about. I felt it was a cute story and I might read it again. I would even recommend it to a friend if they are looking for a quick read.

This was my first read by Leighann Dobbs. I enjoyed it; it was simply just a simple love story, quick read.
Risa and Connor grew up together in the same neighborhood. Connor has always had a crush on Risa however
never did anything about it. Both of their fathers own businesses with their children working for them.
One day, Connor's father decides to buy out Risa's family company which puts Connor and Risa at odds against each other. The best part of a takeover is that even though these two are at odds with each other, sparks of chemistry start to fly between. Each of them is carrying a secret, could these secrets destroy their growing relationship and help each other out. Guess you'll have to read to find out.
There is only one real sex scene in the storyline, not too heavy at all, just a quick, steamy, little love scene. I would recommend this story really to 16+ age group.

Such a cute romance. I'm a sucker for animal lovers characters, and this one satisfied my animal lover heart. Risa is a veterinary, daughter of the owner of a pet-food company and low-cost vet clinic. She loves her job so that's why she isn't going to help Connor buy the company and destroy it.

Connor needs to make a decision about the company before letting his father buy it, but Risa isn't making it easy. And their attraction is making it worse. Their dogs wants to be friends, but can he trust her?

It's a cute story, kind of short. I loved the dogs and even when I thought Connor needed to trust Risa a lot more, they made a sweet couple. It has everything to keep you interested and it's perfect for a quick read.
