Darby, a fun flirty colorful art gallery owner, meets Ben, a sexy successful painter. Each has a personal history which makes them hesitant to begin a new relationship, but their attraction to one another overrides all uncertainties. Without giving away the plot, I’ll just say, they find a way to work things out.
Reading Katie O’Sullivan’s novella is a great way to get a taste of her vivid and lively writing style. Or if you’re already a fan of the author, Say Yes doesn’t disappoint. I really enjoyed it and recommend this heart-warming romance.
Darby Malone left the big city behind to open up an art gallery in her small home town. She has renovations planned after Valentine’s day. Because she has trouble saying no, she ends up hosting a children’s Valentine party in her gallery. As she is cleaning up the last remnants of the blue goo from the party, Ben a well-known Cape Cod artist walks into her gallery. He wants Darby to host a showing of his new paintings that are not even close to the breezy shore paintings he’s known for. The death of his wife four years ago has changed him, thusly his paintings.
Darby has sworn off artists, nothing good can come of dating an artist, in her opinion. Yet, there is something about Ben. He stirs feelings in her that have been dormant for too long. Against her better judgement, she agrees to take a look at his recent paintings. They are not what she expects.
This was a great read. I enjoyed the characters interactions. Both were strong individuals but learned the art of compromise.
Ms. O’Sullivan’s Valentine’s Day romance wraps up nicely and the main issues come to a satisfying resolution. If you’re looking for an entertaining, feel-good read, you need to check out this book.
Artist Ben Phillips is trying to find himself again, after the death of his wife four years ago, by using a more emotional bold approach to his technique. When he meets Darby to try to convince her to do a one-day, one-man show, she’s at first skeptical. Later, she decides to give him a chance; and through various outings, she gets to know the true artist and man.
But will the paintings be the catharsis Ben needs to have feelings for another? And will Darby, ever cautious from stalled past relationships, give him a peek into her heart?
I loved the premise of this story. Katie O’Sullivan’s descriptions are vivid and well-written. Her story flows in an easy style that keeps you reading into the night.
I was given an ARC for this novella for an honest review.
I found this to be a fun romance and great quick read. While Ben has experienced a great loss, enough time has passed that the worst of his grief has passed. Fun with the candy Valentine’s day hearts helped lend a sweet, happy atmosphere to the story to my mind. While Ben’s work – and the anger and grief he’d worked through – was in contrast to the happy tone of the story, I felt this actually made the plot stronger and better. There’s plenty of moments where I giggled – the fun contagious. I feel readers who enjoy a bit of lightheartedness with their romance won’t be disappointed. Having said that, there’s definitely strong emotions – not all of them happy – in Ben’s work. This contrast was shown throughout the story and really intrigued me and kept me eagerly turning the pages.
A great story, I really enjoyed this. The slow progression from strangers, to friends, to more was wonderfully paced to my mind. Ben and Darby came together in what felt like a natural progression and while there’s only one short sex scene the story ends on a clear high note – loving enough to satisfy most romance readers I would think.
A lovely tale about love, loss, grief and hope, with plenty of romance and a delicious slow burn to the main romance this is a wonderful story I know I’ll enjoy many times in the future.

Artist Ben Phillips has just passed through a personal crisis that’s changed the face of his work and he’s looking for a studio willing to launch a show in time for Valentline’s Day. Darby Malone has a few demons of her own and she’s not sure coming home to Cape Cod was the way to chase them. Can two hurting hearts heal one another? Only if one of them is willing to “say yes”.
The setting in this one is gorgeous and so are the love scenes. The author paints with a pallet as varied and vivid as that of her hero. Do yourself a favor and don’t miss this one!
I was given an ARC of this title in return for an honest review.
