Mirror, mirror â¦ whoâs the fairest of them all? I still cringe when I hear that line. A fairy tale that had girls pretending they were the fairest, the most beautiful, and the most entitled. A fairy tale most couldnât grow out of turned my haunted childhood memories into a living nightmare. Girls who grew up believing that pile of garbage became the meanest of all âmean girls.âAnd those mean girls were right â it was a line meant for all the beautiful people in the world â and I knew the answer would never be me.The women with long legs, flat stomachs, and perfect chests.The type of women Kane Masters gravitated toward.Well, thatâs definitely not Willow Tate. No. That will never be me.Because Iâm completely imperfect. And â¦ I hate myself. I have no idea what Kane could possibly see in someone like me when he could have them.
My main issue with this book was that even though the characters were dealing with a very emotional subject I could not feel it as a reader. Good writing and interesting plotline â but something was missing

|Elise Martinez wished her date with destiny didn’t include being run off the road by the most caring, handsome, and intelligent man she’d ever met.
Moving to Granite Lake to manage a bookstore and coffee shop meant Elise could finally leave her haunted past behind, but being a psychic mom to a deaf child has its benefits and downfalls—and her guarded heart isn’t ready for a new romance.
Rob Everett never imagined giving up corporate law to open a brewery with his brothers in Granite Lake would begin with a car accident and the arrival of a surprise baby.
As if being a single dad and starting a new business weren’t challenging enough, Rob can’t get the beautiful, mysterious, and feisty bookstore manager out of his mind.
For Elise and Rob, falling in love is a complicated, sexy, and emotional enterprise.
Mix in a baby, a haunted brewery, craft beer, and a dangerous ex-husband into this recipe of love and their future isn’t as easily divined as the fates would have foretold.
**A steamy, sexy, stand-alone novel with a happy ever after.
**Intended for 18+ for mature language and sexual content.
As Maggie Mitchell enters her final semester of college, the last thing she wants is a guy in her life, let alone two of them. Her new lab partner, Sawyer Reed, is still the overconfident and sexy jock that made fun of her in high school. The only thing that has changed is that he now uses a wheelchair, the result of a skiing accident. Jude Marino is a hot actor, who all the girls want and would do anything to get. He works at a local theater where Maggie has been assigned to complete community services hours after rear-ending a police car. Both Sawyer and Jude want Maggie but only one of them will be able to capture her heart.
I have had this book on my TBRpile since forever finally finding the time to read it I must say it was an enjoyable read. My problems with this story were basically for one the insta love between the leading characters. And the other was that, what happend between Sawyer and Jude was explained by a fact that for me would never suffice for the extrem dislike between them.
