    It is not very often that you, open a book and get pulled inside

    It is not very often that you, open a book and get pulled inside of it. This book was one of those book. I really enjoyed this book and it was a quick read, though it was a quick read it left me wanting more. I love the story of Becca and Tyler.

    Becca was a real lady with real problems. I love books with a human heroine. There are so many times, when heroines are darn near perfect. They are independent confident take no nonsense. Not saying that is bad, but at times it is unrealistic. It takes talent to be able to write a book and have the main character have quirks and insecurities without having them come off as annoying. Becca was not annoying at all, I felt as if I was just one of her friends, I found her so easy relate to.

    Then we have Tyler, oh Tyler *swoon* what a fine specimen of a man, he of course has his own issues and secrets but really you can't help but melt over Tyler.. He is in my opinion a typical man, just when you get to a point of seriously disliking him he completely redeems himself. I don't want to go into many details of the book because then you won't want to buy it and you clearly should or you will be missing out! This book left me wanting more. I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    4.5 stars O-M-G, I love Tyler and Becca. Both the main character

    4.5 stars
    O-M-G, I love Tyler and Becca. Both the main characters have flaws, (a little Fifty Shades meets Crossfire Series to me), but if they didn’t have flaws, I would have been bored with the story. Who wants to read about to two beautiful, rich people that are perfect and have a perfect relationship?
    Becca Stine is a 24 year old college graduate who was dealt a bad hand when her boyfriend Connor cheated on her in her last year of college with her childhood friend Ashlynn. To get over the devastation, she and her best friend Jamie lived it up for a year in Florida. After a frightful encounter in her dangerous lifestyle Becca and Jamie make the move back to Becca’s hometown of Grand Rapids after she accepts a job at Conklin Architecture, Construction, and Design. (She’s a good girl who tried to be bad, who just wants to be loved… ahhh)
    Tyler Conklin is a beautiful complex man, he along with his father and brothers, run Conklin Architecture, Construction, and Design. When we first meet him, we realize that there are some underlying problems with him that are going to affect his story. The first realization this is his sexual escapade with his childhood nanny at his grandfather’s funeral. (oh, this guy is going to be awesome to read about.)
    I love how Becca and Tyler meet; it reminded me a lot of Gideon and Eva from Crossfire, but with a different twist. They meet at work, Tyler is her bosses’ boss, who is intrigued by the new employee (Becca), and calls her out for her opinion during her first company meeting. The story moves smoothly, the writing great; we really get a feel for Becca and Tyler’s struggles and passion throughout the book.
    The only issue I had with Becca is that she can be a little too whiny and insecure at times, but if you think about it, you should be able to completely relate as a woman. How would you feel if your boyfriend cheated on you, with your friend, in your bed, I’d be insecure too? Tyler also has his own demons with his family and relationships, that sometimes I just wanted to slap and he tell him to grow a pair.
    The supporting cast of this book was also amazing. I love Jamie’s unwavering support for Becca and the Conklin brother’s family chemistry great. Also, every book needs a bad girl, enter… Ashlynn and a horrible parent – JR Conklin or Missy Stine (take your pick).
    I give this book a definite 4.5 stars. If you loved Fifty Shades and the Cross Fire series, this book is defiantly for you!
    ***This is the first book in the Conklin’s Blueprints Trilogy.

    Becca Stine Has had a hell of a time the past two years. After walking in on Her Boyfriend having sex in HER bed with Her childhood Best Friend. She decides to take a year off and go “wild” with her Loyal and real Best Friend after a bad experience one night after the bar she deicides its time for her too grow up and get a job. Unfortunately the job she lands is in her home town where her Wealthy Family is. Her Father loves her dearly but oh boy is her mother a piece of work Always putting her down about her weight her eating habits her appearance and anything else you could imagine. On her first day at her new job she meets Nathan and Tyler Conklin 2 of the owners sons and her bosses. She is instantly attracted To Tyler and its clear the feeling is mutual. As Tyler is sending her mixed signals and confusing her She is battling with her insecurity her mothers Crudeness and finding out the her Ex and her friend whom he cheated on her with are getting married and want her to help design their Dream house. Her relationship with Tyler was very confusing as he has reasons for why he couldnt allow anyone to know they were together but he didnt want to talk about those reason. At first Becca was a hard character for me to like I mean the girl had absolutely no backbone she let people walk all over her and she allowed her “friend” to constantly be around her and throw her relationship with Beccas ex in her face going as far as to agreeing to draw up the blueprints for their house and be her maid of honor at their wedding. However as the story went on I grew to like her because you could see her developing a back bone right in front of your eyes. Does Becca get the guy? Will Tyler finally explain what his reasons are and acknowledge their relationship publicly. Will her mom ever treat her with the respect she deserves? You’ll have to read to find out! The journey Becca takes is one of heartache, pain, love, and self discovery and is well worth the read. I give this book 4 stars.

    This book kept the reader guessing. The hero in this book is part of a very well known architecture and design firm. Then heroine is an architect. With that being said, this book is definitely a design how love should and should not go. That Love needs a strong and true foundation, or it will fall apart over time. The hero and heroine both have passed issues with relationships that they would rather keep bottled inside and forgotten. Yet, is anything truly forgotten? Will Becca and Tyler open their hearts and bare their souls in order to create and construct their Happily Ever After? Well you will have to read to find out. Enjoy!
