Overview

Whatever Melody Cannon wants, Melody Cannon gets - or least that has been the case for the past eight years. The famous Hollywood stylist is used to giving orders, but when Melody takes an early retirement from Tinseltown and returns home to Washington, D.C., to start a new life, she encounters the irresistible force known as Clayton Reed, a local architect whom she hires to design her new abode.

Clayton can think of many words to describe Melody, his childhood nemesis who is now his new client. Unfortunately, none of those words are good. He's a patient man, but even he can't control his temper around her. Despite his dislike for the bossy, hot-tempered vixen, Clayton still feels drawn under her spell. As he designs her new home, he gradually breaks down the defensive walls she has built around her with a passion and love she has never known.

    Right in Front of My Face

    Hollywood stylist to the stars Melody Cannon is a powerhouse who is used to getting what she asks for. When she decides to retire and move back home to Washington, DC to start a new phase in her life and be near her family, the last thing she expected was to have a hard time finding an architect to build her dream home. Clayton Reed, her childhood crush, may be her last resort. Clayton, however, is not too pleased that his mother suggested his architect firm help Melody build her dream home. All Clayton can see is a childhood bully who does not seem to have changed much with age. Clayton and Melody soon realize this project may produce more than a dream home for Melody.

    ¿A Love Built to Last¿ is a love story that almost seems impossible to blossom. The no nonsense, take charge Melody is shocked and pleased to see that Clayton is willing to stand up to her for something he believes in and so starts their work relationship. What unfolds next, with some help from both of their mothers, is a love story of the uncertain kind. The story was well written and Clayton¿s smart comebacks to Melody¿s brash attitude keep the reader engaged and actually makes for some laugh out loud moments. I enjoyed the fact that although you knew this was a romance and Clayton was gonna get the girl, there was just enough of a story line from their families and friends to add some meat to the story and add a refreshing break in the normal formula for a romance novel. I would recommend LaShell Stratton-Childers¿ ¿A Love Built to Last¿ to readers who enjoy romance and those wanting to give romance a try but not looking to read their mother¿s romance novel.
