Be My Love (A Walker Island Romance, Book 1) by Lucy Kevin, Bella Andre

"Bella Andre writing as Lucy Kevin is wonderful! Be My Love is well written with her characters coming alive on every page. They are well developed, full of passion, loyalty and overwhelming feelings of love." ~ 5 star review for Be My Love

BE MY LOVE is the first book in the fun and romantic "Walker Island" contemporary romance series! Lucy Kevin is the "sweet" pen-name of New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Bella Andre (who writes the #1 bestselling series about The Sullivans). Lucy Kevin books are fun, flirty and romantic?without the steamy scenes.

BOOK DESCRIPTION: Come for a visit to Walker Island where you'll find stunning Pacific Northwest ocean views, men too intriguing to resist...and five close-knit sisters who are each about to find their one true love.

After four years on the Seattle mainland, when Hanna Walker returns to Walker Island to make a documentary about the infamous Peterson-Walker feud from the early 1950s, she's shocked to realize that passions still run high. Especially when it comes to Joel Peterson, the one man who is totally off-limits...but that she's never been able to stop dreaming about.

The last thing Joel wants is for Hanna to dredge up the past, but when he realizes she's determined to follow through with her documentary no matter what, he knows he has no choice but to join her. But despite vowing to hold back his growing feelings for her, as Joel works with Hanna to unravel the mystery of what really happened between their two families, he soon begins to see that love is an unstoppable force...and that sometimes two people are meant to be.

this is the first in a series of light and easy to read romances. I've read two of the series so far and plan to read them all. Short eBooks that allowed me an afternoon of entertainment. I love happy endings. Would have liked it to be longer though.

This is a lite sweet story. But there never seemed to be any true passion between the main characters and there is no love scenes. Story reminded me of one of my moms early romance novels kind of boring. Would have been better with the sweet story line and a little more spark between the characters.

Stayed up late to finish this beautiful story. Following your dreams doesn't mean you never want to go home. This is a lovely book, I recomend you it highly.

Bella is one of my favorite authors but this book was not even close to her normal writing style. So cheesy that I almost didn't finish reading it. Where is all the adventure, turmoil, and steamy romance

I really like Lucy Kevin books...they are sweet and light, a great quick read! I love the Walker sisters and look forward to more books about them (read my review of Morgan's story, No Other Love) That said, I didn't love Joel. I feel like he was a little too staid and "old" for Hanna. I also would have liked a little more background as to the "feud;" It seemed, and I'll use this word again, staid. When I think feud, I think Hatfields/McCoys or even Montague/Capulet! Even so, I've recommended it to friends.

I really wanted to like this one more. Overall the story is good and the romance is sweet. The mystery was the most interesting part. I wanted to know more about the main characters, Hanna and Joel. The story needed more character development. The romance between them was rushed and I didn't feel the connection between them until the very end. I did enjoy learning about Walker Island and the family.

Twists and turns that lead nowhere and extra words that do not add much to the story line. I wonder why the fantastic reviews...I suppose people like to read mundane novels. No emotional connection with the characters not even a smile or tear provoked. At least it was free.

This was a very delightful, fun, romantic book with love and without all the sex and foul language. It was a joy to read and I look forward to reading more in the “Walker Island” series since this was the first. The story was about Hanna Walker who is a film student and needs to do a documentary to get into the master’s program. She decides to do it on the biggest feud on the island which is between her family and the Peterson’s. The Walker-Peterson feud goes back to the early 1950’s and Hanna needs to get the documents in the archives but is denied by Joel Peterson, grandson of one of the originals’ in the feud. She must show Joel that she means no harm but wants to document what actually happens. The two of them dig into what actually happened to cause the feud and are not only surprised by the truth but surprised by their feelings as well. The story and characters are well written and it’s always a pleasure to read a sweet romance without all the steamy sex and foul language once in a while. I look forward to reading more of the Walker Island series.

Bella Andre sure phoned this one in. I have read and enjoyed many of her books. Can't say the same for this one. I didn't feel for any of the characters, the romance was forced and waaaaay too fast, the story just seemed stupid. I am deleting it from my Nook, because I can think of no reason I would ever want to read it again.

This is a sweet CLEAN romance. Although it was not a descriptive step by step love scene it did have one or at least alluded to one. The story is about two families torn apart by what each believes what happened decades prior. A failed romance, a suicide and missed opportunities. Even after decades, the island is split on what the people believe; that is, until the youngest daughter returns to the island seeking the truth for her documentary. Every stop of the way roadblocks are thrown hoping she will not continue "stirring" up bad memories. Even though the story is fiction, today too many of us believe what has been told over and over through the decades and react to the information. Or, misinformation. Can two people from opposite sides uncover the truth? If you are seeking a book filled with profanity and sex scenes you will not find it here.
