Overview

Sizzling romance

A secret crush. Two wounded hearts. A tale of love, hope and redemption.

No stranger to loss, Tami Morrelle is holding on with one satiny thread to the only thing she has left that ties her to her loved ones - the family bridal shop.

Local bad boy Daniel Ramsey is back in town and on a mission - to turn Tami's world upside down - any way he can.

Daniel needs Tami's beachfront home and business to complete his crowning achievement as a successful developer. His latest proposal hinges on buying former high school classmate Tami's land to make it happen. More importantly, it will show those in Loving who were convinced he'd amount to less than nothing they were dead wrong about him.

For Daniel, it's Loving or nothing. For Tami, selling out to Daniel will leave her with nothing. But when the ruthless developer and sentimental bridal shop owner clash, sparks fly.

A secret crush. Two wounded hearts. Will Daniel and Tami be willing to give up what they think they need and open their hearts to what really matters in Loving?

(Includes bonus short story, "Accidental Love.")
This title is also available in the Wedding Dreams Boxed Set edition.

LOVING OR NOTHING (Romance) 4.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.

Because I once lived in New Jersey and knew the areas well Ms. Marsi described, it was like a homecoming to read "Loving or Nothing". Vivid descriptions lent a 3-D background to a heartfelt story of two deserving, well-written characters who reunite and find love. I felt for Tami's struggle to stay afloat and keep her grandmother's home filled with cherished memories, and loved how Daniel's character grew the more he came to care for Tami. The ending twist in this enjoyable read gives a satisfying Happy Ever After. I gave it 4 stars, only because I wish it was longer.

I was especially curious to see how the author tied the threads of the story together to create a happily ever after when the hero and heroine had such diametrically opposed goals. I'm pleased to say she exceeded my expectations. The plot development was well done and offered a few nice surprises. She did a great job of making readers distrust the hero at the beginning of the story, just as the heroine did, (and will good reason!)and then helped us care about him as his character developed. A pleasant read! If you enjoy contemporary romances, I have no hesitation recommending this story.

This sweet reunion story sparks tempers as much as passions. Tami finds it unthinkable that she might lose the beach house her parents left her. But Daniel, a boy she knew years ago, rides in and wants to take that last link to her parents away. Seeing him again, her undeniable attraction to him is a force of it's own. And Daniel has had a thing for Tami since high school. I loved how this story progressed, I thought it was a lovely read. I also enjoyed the other story called Accidental Love.

I just love Cara Marsi stories. I can always count on her for romance that keeps me on the edge of my seat wondering how the couples will overcome their differences. This one did not disappoint. Recommended for all romantics at heart!
