NY Times: "The sex between Maggie and Owen is . . . delicious . . ."
Publishers Weekly: In a passionate modern Romeo and Juliet-inspired story (with a much happier ending) that opens a contemporary romance series, Pineiro (Under the Boardwalk) develops the forbidden love between sensitive, spunky retail heiress Maggie Sinclair and stoic real estate scion Owen Pierce. . . . A cast of lovely, imperfect supporting characters--including Owen's entrepreneurial younger brother, Jonathan; Maggie's friend Emma, a wedding planner avoiding love; and her friend Connie, a workaholic lawyer gunning for partner--neatly surrounds this endearing hero and heroine as Owen's father attempts to derail their love story forever. Readers will want to visit the charming town of Sea Kiss again and again. (Oct.)
Kirkus: "A sexy, fun, yet touching summer read."
Books for Books Blogspot: "One Summer Night was a well written romance novel that was more than just a typical love at first sight. . . I found the interaction between the characters and the dialogue to be particularly well written. . . I greatly enjoyed this romance novel and it is the perfect book for reading at the beach!"
RT Book Reviews - 4 Stars: "Book one of the At the Shore series is delightful and will be embraced by beach-lovers far and wide. Pineiro's description of Sea Kiss, NJ, sounds like a place you will never want to leave. But paradise can also be daunting as the author reminds us, especially when it's inhabited by two feuding families. Readers will appreciate how cautious Maggie and Owen approach their romance. This is a fantastic start to the series!"
Fresh Fiction: "Hot, sexy, and refreshing! ONE SUMMER NIGHT is a wonderful example of contemporary romance at its best! The characters are dynamic and surprisingly relatable. The Jersey Shore comes fully to life; the perfect setting for these characters' sizzling attraction. Readers will root for Maggie and Owen to open their hearts and fall fully in love."
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.
