I’ve posted about the Lover’s Landing Novella project before for the cover reveals. Thanks to all of the author’s and Enticing Journey Book Promotions, I received ARCs of all eight novellas to read and review.
They’re all short reads, the longest being just under 200 pages. If you’re looking for a fast read that will leave you smiling, one of these novellas is definitely something to think about! Keep reading to see what I thought of each novella!
Lydia never planned to return to Love, GA.
The votes are in, but their hearts are on the line.
As a member of Love’s most prominent family, Helena Davis enjoys traveling the world as a corporate lawyer. When she loses her job and her father suffers a stroke, Helena is forced to return to Love to take care of him. To keep the family’s influence intact, he asks her to take his place in the upcoming election for his vacant council seat. It shouldn’t be a challenge. But this time, there’s a real contender – her ex-boyfriend, Sean.
Sean Dixon thought he’d seen the last of Helena when she turned down his marriage proposal and left town years ago. Now that she’s back and so sure of her victory, he’s determined to win that seat on the council. The people of Love are tired of the Davis family’s corrupt politics. He’ll prove to her that he’s more than just a history teacher and widowed single father. Even if it takes uncovering family secrets and some good, old-fashioned blackmail.
I think The Marriage Sham was one of my favorites in this series of novellas. Another kind of second chance romance, but a little different. Frances is a litle overwhelmed when she realizes that her Grandfather is sicker than she realizes. Going home she never expects to run into Fen or feel the same attraction from long ago. I thought it was amazing what he did for her Grandfather. This one really left a smile on my face!
I need the money. Now. It’s not my fault that the bed and breakfast Grandpa Jay left me is a giant failure. My only hope is to sell the place and cash in on what little it has to offer. The only problem? I have to convince her, my grandpa’s pseudo-grandchild, that it’s a good idea too. And she’s even more stubborn than I am.
Nope. There ain’t no way I’m gonna uproot my two-year-old daughter by sellin’ the only home she’s ever known for an entitled city boy unwillin’ to give his granddaddy’s bed and breakfast a chance of thrivin’. Jay, why did you have to partner me up with him? He’s even more stubborn than I am!
The day I met Molly Murphy was riddled with moments where it felt like common sense was yelling at me to stay away from the knock out redhead. Her sassy little mouth had me hooked. Her plump lips and sharp tongue made me think of all unsavory things I could do with both.
I know what you’re thinking, what could have possibly derailed such an immediate attraction? A couple of things, actually. She was born the same year I started high school, for one. The bigger issue, however, is her boss. Turns out that prick, is me. The second that I found out I sign her pay checks, she became off limits.
So, imagine my surprise when I hear that I’ve been banging her harder than a screen door in a hurricane. In a small town like Love Georgia, the rumor mill practically supplies the town’s electricity. I resisted temptation for a year, but now I don’t think I can fight it anymore. Hell, if everyone is already talking about us, why not make it true?
Marika enjoys writing all types of fiction novels, based on what inspires her. Right now she’s working on a new steamy RomCom series along with sweet romances to make your heart explode. All her books come with a money-back guarantee that you’ll smile at least once with every book.
Born and raised in the Florida Panhandle, she has always had a love for reading and writing, with the romance genre being her obvious favorite. Her desire to expand her horizons led her to join the United States Air Force and proudly serve her country for six years.
While stationed in Atwater California, she met her true love and together they have shared life’s beautiful joys and tragic losses. After spending over half her life in the Central Valley of California, she has moved back home to the Wiregrass area of Alabama, where her passion for writing first began.
Leanne lives in Western Washington in the outskirts of Seattle. Rain, traffic and Starbucks really are a thing here. But so are endless evergreens, water and mountains. There is nowhere else she’d rather spend her time when not writing, than grabbing some coffee or slipping off into the natural wonders of the area.
