Sabotage or assist? ` Trent Leeds is uncertain about many things in his life. Will he help the mousey Shelby win over the guy of her dreams? Or will he show her he is the right guy?
Shelby Davis is a local baker who has a secret crush on the new attorney in town, Drew Collins. But when her dream guy comes to her to ask if she can rent out her extra room over the shop to his old friend, Trent, she hesitates. After all, Trent Leeds is not exactly a clean-cut guy. He screams “I’m a player.” He is easy on the eyes, but Shelby can see that Trent is not exactly a church choir boy.
Trent Leeds is trying to figure out what to do with his life. He has had enough trouble for one lifetime. When he sees how crazy the shy little baker is and how she seems to jump each time Drew is around, he decides to help her win him over.
However, the more he helps her open up and reveal the woman inside of her, the more he sees a woman he could possibly fall in love with. He knows he is not her usual type of man. Can he become something safe and secure for a woman like her? Is he willing to give up his wild bachelor days and settle down into the man his parents always hoped he would one day be?

Mary Catherine Collier is called to the penthouse apartment of the city’s very rich, most influential lawyer, Detrick Bittmor. He has a very personal assignment for her. It involves a mysterious young man who sits on a park bench every day at noon and stares up at Bittmor’s top floor apartment.
Mary Catherine, or Cat, as she’s better known, has a soft spot for this lawyer with a nasty reputation. There’s something about this old man she likes, and even finds charming.
Detrick Bittmor thinks the young man on the park bench resembles a younger version of himself. He thinks this young man could be his son from an affair he had many years ago with a beautiful New Year lawyer. This man could be his only heir.
And old man Bittmor isn’t getting any younger.

I have discovered a new author to follow

I found that I really enjoyed January Black Ice so much that I read the February and March books right after this one. It kept my attention and I liked the main characters. I would certainly recommend it for compelling reading.

Falling in love with his partner’s little sister was never part of the plan.
There was an order to James Marsden’s future: get a job as an Indianapolis cop, work his way up to detective, and then find a nice girl and start a family. He never planned on walking into a diner his first day as a rookie copy and for her to blow his entire timeline to smithereens.
When Marie Griffen’s older brother Steve introduced her to his new trainee, she was instantly drawn to his shy demeanor and blushing face. Only, she couldn’t act on her feelings even if she wanted to. Steve wanted her to date someone with a normal job – that wasn’t his partner. Marie just wanted to live her own life without her older brother watching over her.
Marie and James must decide if this off-limits romance is worth the risk or if the consequences are too much for either of them to bear.

Fabulous prequel to the series!
I read books 1,2 and 3 before I read Loving Marie but it was amazing! I loved learning how Marie fit into the story.
This is the most amazing series I’ve read in a while and hope it goes on a little longer.
I highly recommend Loving Marie!

A sweet but very interesting love story
By Melanie
Shelby is shy but independent. A good business woman but a little naïve when it comes to some things.
Trent is yummy, cocky, funny, and sweet.
Drew is a lawyer. Enough said.
This book will keep your interest from the beginning. Not a dull moment.

Will they be able to overcome the misunderstandings and be happy together? Or are the consequences too much for …
This is an extremely quick read.
James is a rookie cop working with Steve, Marie’s brother.
When they go to dinner where Marie works, James instantly becomes interested in her, but is warned by Steve to stay away from her.
Marie also feels an attraction for James, but after some misunderstandings, she thinks that the feeling is not reciprocal.
James starts to avoid her and his behavior sort of gets out of control to try to forget her.
Will they be able to overcome the misunderstandings and be happy together? Or are the consequences too much for them to bear?
This is a very interesting story, but the events are very fast. I think it could have been more explored.
I recommend the reading.
