I really haven't been a fan of romance books for a long time because they were turning out to be the same and getting a little to raunchy. Love By Design is a refreshing return to romance! It is absolutely wonderful. You really connect with the characters and fall in love with them. I cannot wait for the next book in this series!!

    I can't believe this book got over four stars. The book is too contrived and trite. Near the end I started skipping entire passages just to get to the end. Was this the author's first book?

    This book is the first in the series and it is the book that introduced me to this fabulous author. This author knows how to tell a story with love and romance, mixed with a bit of drama when needed. You swoon when Justin is around and you want to hang out Callie for some fun. Ashley made me want to smack some sense into her. Pick up this great book. You won't regret it.

    Predictible

    I'm so confused by the ratings this book has received. The story is predictible and lacks depth and character development. The story feels very rushed. I can't imagine that I'll be buying additional titles by this author.

    A lovely contemporary romance with a heroine that many women can completely relate too; from having that beautiful BFF that guys naturally drool over, to taking the curves life throws at you and turning them into something positive, to dreaming maybe having her own happily ever after. An excellent, warm hearted read!

    This was this author's first book and she has outdone herself. I can only expect the best for her second book.The way the book was written, it made me feel as if I was a part of the story itself. I was full of lots of emotion reading this book; sadness, anger, annoyance, happy and satisfied. Love at first sight does happen in real life, not just in books. Jason actually says he fell in love with her before he met her because of the things his father told him about her. There was a lot of miscommunication/assumption done by the characters; which in turn made me very upset. I had alot of forehead slapping moments. But you know, that's real life. Our lives are affected daily by a lot of these, and sometimes the situations go beyond repair. You just have to know how to handle them. They were very lucky to have his father set the facts straight. Only if we can all have that one person make that push for us.. Job well done, can't wait till the second book!

    I was hooked on the book from Chapter One. The characters were easy to relate to and Callie's mom was such a hoot with her new-found texting ability. The humor and flow of the story was captivating. I am anxiously awaiting the next book.

    This was such a good book, I didn't want it to end. Callie is a architect, who loves her work. When she's not expecting it Justin comes into her life. He's handsome and successful, he's also interested in Callie. The other characters in this book are great, which I love. Callie's mother and neighbor had me laughing, mix in the drama and the steam between Callie and Justin and you've got a great story. Cant wait to see what happens next..
