Hating the guy who ruined her confidence would be a lot easier if he wasn’t so freaking sexy.

For Addy, small-town life is just perfect. She’s about to expand her inn with ten new rooms and a petting zoo, and she’s helping the mayor’s son organize his wedding. If only her pet duck would stop escaping all the time, her days would be an absolute breeze.

But then Justin Miller shows up at Addy’s check-in desk. The guy went from small-town stud to lead actor in a popular series, and he’s behaving exactly like the celebrity he is. Smug grins, dimples to die for, and hordes of women chasing him all over town.

Addy has no intention of letting him in her life again—not after what happened in high school. So what if he keeps trying to prove he’s changed? No amount of helicopter rides and intimate outings will change the truth:

Justin Miller is nothing but trouble.

Love to Prove You Wrong is a sweet romantic comedy and the second book in the Old Pine Cove series. All books share the same setting, but each story features a different couple.

*** Note: I received e-copy of this book from the author, in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. Many thanks to author. ***

Previous book I read in series:

Love to Prove You Wrong was lovely and cozy romcom, a dazzling love story of Addy. It was hate to love and character falling in love with celebrity arc. It was about second chance, denial of love and misjudgment.

Writing was addictive, entertaining and fast paced. I couldn’t stop reading until I finished the book. Setting was the same as first book and like first book, it was charming. Loved Old Pine Cove in spring and town activities in this season. The more I’m reading about this town and community the more I want to pack my things and move to this beautiful place. You can read this book as standalone but I would say read the first book. I’m sure you won’t regret it.

Book started with Addy stressed under the upcoming wedding of Diane’s grandson at her inn and its organization. Diane’s famous tantrums and demands, escaping duck didn’t help with the stress and to make things worse Justin Miller returns the town and staying as a guest at her inn. The same Justin who made her high school life difficult and now he is famous Hollywood star. Addy knew he is trouble and exactly how he was in high school, a jerk. But when they had to work together for spring event, her feelings thawed eventually. But could she trust Justin and her rapidly changing feelings? Can she put her heart in line for a person who lowered her self-esteem and self-confidence in high school? Can a relationship is possible between a small town simple living girl and famous life of Hollywood star?

In last book I said I wish I could know Addy more and it came true here. Addy was sweetheart, professional and realistic. I could relate with her when it came to holding judgement because of bad experience. But unlike me she got a chance to change that judgement and I’m glad it proved wrong here.

Justin was amazing. At first I thought he was obnoxious rich and super famous Hollywood star. But I thawed pretty quickly than Addy. He was definitely irresistible. But I couldn’t figure out his actions in high school in half of the book and to be honest the reason was pretty lame. Who acts like that! But his confession was heartwarming and when she said why he came back and expressed his feelings, I was ready to swap places with Addy.

I enjoyed reading all characters and I was glad to meet old ones too.It was great to see both Justin and Addy’s feelings develop. They were perfect with each other. Their dates were awesome. Paparazzi, drama, and jealousy added spice in the story. Conversation and dialogues were great.  

I could figure out the end pretty early but not that climax. I loved how thing took turn at climax and the way they found solution to their problem. I loved the end, epilogue and everything in this book.

Overall, it was light, sweet and fun read with lovely characters and town. I highly recommend this book.

#BookBlitz :Love, Look Away by Lisette Brodey @LisetteBrodey @RRBookTours1 #LoveLookAway #RRBookTours #Romance #WomensFiction #Books

Congratulations to Lisette Brodey, on her October release of Love, Look Away! Read on for an exclusive excerpt .

Love, Look Away by Lisette Brodey
Publication Date: October 10, 2019
Genre: Romantic Comedy/ Women’s Fiction

Synopsis:

Twenty-nine-year-old Sage Gordon has had it with love. When she’s not busy running her metaphysical gift shop in the old-money town of Swansea, New York, she’s content with the company of her dog and two cats.

Years ago, the boy she thought she’d marry some day disappeared in the middle of the night and was never heard from again. Haunted by the loss of Jimmy, she remains wary about love, until she is set up with a gorgeous NYC marketing executive. Love moves quickly, and she finds herself engaged — but if only he had betrayed her before she sent out the save-the-date cards.

Sage reverts to her former mindset: love, look away. Forever. Despite her best efforts, though, two completely different yet wonderful men enter her life. Still haunted by the past, can she let romance back into her life?

Excerpt:

Sage hurried back into the store, to see a gorgeous man with a huge head of tousled brown hair and a sexy two-day growth on his face. He was wearing a button-down blue-and-white checked cotton shirt, with three buttons undone and a pair of sunglasses hanging from the V neckline it created. His sleeves were rolled up to reveal three leather bracelets on his left wrist and a watch on the right. He wore khaki chino pants and ankle-high brown moccasins. And he had the biggest smile Sage had ever seen.

“G’day!” he said before she could greet him. He turned to see Godiva. “And g’day to you too.”

“You must be Freddie’s houseguest,” Godiva said. “From Australia.”

“Benton Bradley,” he said, taking care to make eye contact with both women before Rufus greeted him with enthusiasm. “G’day, fluffy mate. I reckon you and my Kelpie Matilda might enjoy a good pash.”

“Is that short for ‘passionate?’” Sage asked as she walked around the counter to greet him, her eyes bright and curious. “Hi, I’m Sage Gordon.”

As Rufus finally settled on his mat by the meditation cushion, Benton took both of her hands in his. “Indeed it is, Sage. You’re beautiful as.”

Unnerved, but not put off by the intimacy of the exchange, Sage delicately pulled away. “Benton, you said, right?”

“I did.” He winked. “You can call me Bent, but please, don’t call me crooked.”

Sage laughed, finding herself unable to avert her gaze.

He looked at Godiva. “You must be Freddie’s lady, Godiva Jones.”

“I am,” Godiva said as she walked over to shake his hand. “Or I will be,” she mumbled under her breath. “It’s lovely to meet you, Benton.” She winked at Sage. “I’m going into the office to finish those website updates we talked about.”

Sage’s eyes widened in surprise, then narrowed as if to playfully chastise Godiva. “Yeah, by all means, update my website. Seems like we’ve been talking about that incessantly … and nothing else.”

“Don’t I know it? Well, you know where to find me if the bells clang too much,” Godiva said. She walked behind the curtains with a satisfied smile.

Sage looked at Benton while his eyes scanned the store with great interest. “Quite a place you have here. I like it.” He looked at the sign above the counter. “What’s that all about?”

“Oh, the Private Property sign. It’s just there for decoration.”

“I don’t suppose you’d like to sell it. I’ve got a small farm, and that would be a welcome addition to my front gate.”

“It’s not for sale,” Sage said. “Besides, you can’t bring wood into Australia. They’d confiscate it at customs.”

“No wood for me then,” Benton said, laughing to himself.

Sage felt oddly tantalized by the stranger’s words.

“That sign looks a good deal older than you.”

“It is, I think. Or maybe it just ages faster. Besides, I use moisturizer twice a day. I don’t think the sign cares about self-preservation.”

“It could use a good oil rubdown,” Benton said, grinning. “I’d be happy to do that for you.”

AUTHOR’S NOTE: 

Love, Look Away is set in the same fictional town (Swansea, NY) as my first romantic comedy, Molly Hacker Is Too Picky! This book is not, however, a sequel or a series. Love, Look Away is a stand-alone novel. Some readers will recognize several characters from Molly, including Molly herself, playing supporting roles.

And to readers who have never read Molly, but who may wish to do so, rest assured this novel does not give away the ending.
