From the Author
I started with Maggie's Romeo and Juliet tale of enemies to lovers. I fell even more in love with her and Owen, the hero, as well as the cast of interesting and unique characters around them. Connie, the determined lawyer (who is probably the most like me). Emma, the wedding planner who can't see a path for herself to the happily-ever-after. Jonathan, Owen's brother, a genius who marches to his own drummer. Carlo, the stoic and supportive caterer who is hopelessly in love with Emma. I love them all and I hope you will, too.
Look for What Happens in Summer, Connie and Jonathan's story in Spring 2018.

Owen and Maggie have been meant for each other for forever…there’s just been too many things in their way, namely the feud that erupted between their families. A feud that neither of them quite know the details of, but one that has had them keeping their distance from one another even though the pull of attraction has been there since they were kids.
Maggie was wonderful. After losing her mother, I loved that she stepped up to become so involved in the family business. I could feel her pain at not being able to convince her dad to make changes to keep the business moving forward – and her pain at knowing that financially things were not good and might not ever turn around.
Owen has also become part of his family’s business, doing everything he can to keep the approval of his sometimes-volatile father – and he knows the price he will pay if he fails since his father has already disowned his brother Jonathan for not living up to his expectations. I totally understood his need to stay away from Maggie and loved when he decided that he couldn’t stay away any longer and needed to help her. I also understood his need to keep the truth from his father, but I do wish he would have confided in her his plan once everything was set in place and things were more than real between them.
I absolutely loved the cast of characters in this book and relationships with one another that they share. The girls being BFFFs and calling each other out on their BS was great, and I loved getting to see the strength in Owen and his brother Jonathan’s relationship, despite having their father disown Jonathan. This cast of characters added so much to this book and has certainly laid the groundwork for future books in the series.
This was an easy read with a fairly straight forward plot, but there were some twists and reveals in this book that kept things moving. And I absolutely loved the way this ended – I don’t think I would have enjoyed the book as much if things didn’t end as they did!
This is the perfect book for your beach bag or to curl up with when you need a happy ever after with a little bit of angst and a whole lot of great characters!
I had read book 2 first not realizing it was part of a series (as I got it through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review) so I went back,and got book 1 to read after, so I would understand better the family and feud dynamic &The friendships. I'm glad I read this book though, but book 2 was much better in my opinion.I loved it!!!
I really can't wait to read about Emma`s story. Things are happening at the same time frame in between the brothers & girls, but each book is concentrated individually on each couple's with their turbulent pasts and relationships.
The story is of Owen and Maggie and how they get a chance to be together in spite of the feud between their families that has kept them apart.
Maggie is a strong, stubborn at times but sweet character. I didn’t exactly have warm and fuzzy feelings for her towards the end when she was being rigid and not willing to listen to Owen because she felt she knew it all. She didn’t take into consideration what Owen was going through and she wasn’t one to talk because she hid things as well. She was also very unforgiving, Owen had risked alot for her and was still doing so. He even went as far as setting her free just so she could get her head out of the sand and see that his feelings are real and he isn’t lying. She should have listened to him but she just didn’t want to. Overall though she is a adorable character. Very smart and witty. I love her passion for her familie’s stores and how much family means to her. Her friends are fiercely protective and loyal to her.
Owen is strong and sweet. He doesn’t try to rock the boat but when he sees Maggie again he can’t help it. He wants to explore his feelings but is scared of losing his dad. So when he sees Maggie is in trouble with her business he devises a plan to be able to explore his feelings and keep his dad happy. And it works but his guilt does lay heavy with him.
I love the dynamic between Owen and his brother Jonathon. They are opposites in every way but they are there for one another no matter what. Owen is protective and respects his brother. He is so proud of all he has accomplished. It is Jonathon that helps Owen get perspective needed to have his happy ever after. We also see a little romance tension between Jonathon and one of Maggie’s friends that crackles when they are in the room.
Maggie and Owen’s chemistry is off the charts. As they explore their feelings you can see that they are meant to be and always have been. They let go of their fear and explore who they are to one another. It is crazy how they end up together and at times you are waiting for the shoe to drop just not as it has. Owen has such confidence and belief in Maggie he does all he can to help her. Even risking his livelihood, heart and losing his father for her. i love the respect he has for her and the support he gives her is amazing. This is why how she was towards the end was so disheartening. He risked so much for her. the story is sexy, sweet, and entertaining. This is the story of Maggie and Owen- how they fall in love, almost lose one another, mature and how Maggie flourishes under Owen but also saves her business. It is about falling in love and taking risks but also friendship and forgiveness. A sassy fun sexy entertaining read.
