It was love at first sight...

When her Papa loses his job, indomitable Serafina Scott insists it's her turn to take care of him – meaning landing a well-paying job...and fast. Which is how she ends up working for the Cinderella Project, a high-end matchmaking business, even though she's certainly no expert on affairs of the heart. Until she meets Murdoch, the gruff builder restoring her extravagant new work place. He's inscrutable, infuriating, and gorgeous...

Convincing them was a whole other matter.

Murdoch finds Sera confounding...and luminous. But beneath her firecracker exterior, she is dangerously soft-hearted, and the last thing she needs is a broken brute like him.

While Sera does her best to convince Murdoch that they are a match made in heaven, Murdoch makes it his mission to prove her wrong. Will it come down to who's the most convincing...or who's most willing to be convinced?

A sweet fairytale romance! This is the second book in the Cinderella Project series but the first one that I’ve read and it worked well as a standalone, too. It is a romance with a fairy godmother figure, Hazel, trying to help others - usually friends - to find true love. This story is mainly concerned with Serafina Scott, a half-Italian, feisty, highly intelligent young lady who is trying to take care of her father by landing a well paid job, leaving her current PhD studies and university work. She’s also something of a tomboy, having been brought up from the age of 5 by her Dad and spending lots of time in the garage helping restore vintage cars. Her new job, just happens to be working for Hazel, helping set up the matchmaking business website and digital presence. It is here that she meets Justin Murdoch, the rugged, handsome, attractive builder currently working on the property for Hazel. Their attraction may well be instantaneous but he’s determined not to bring any romance involving him into the life of Hazel so is stubbornly determined to resist. Hazel, however, has other ideas and you’ll just have to read it yourself to find out how things work out! It is a lovely tale to escape into and I recommend it to anyone who likes to read romances written with humour and a great range of characters. Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley, too, for letting me have an ARC of this book in exchange for this, an honest review though I confess to accidentally deleting it after the book had been archived so I then bought myself a copy of the novel so I could still review it!

Decent storyline. Likable characters...except for the M & F main. Sera was too pushy for me. Murdoch was too on and off. Jh

Dave Cousins owns The Wild Rose Inn. He has a young daughter robin who stays with him on occasion. His fiancee Anita had died three years ago but Dave still hasn’t gotten over it. The night clerk told Dave about a young woman he had put in a room the night before as she had passed out from exhaustion. Her name was Cassidy. Dave learned later that morning when she came down looking for caffeine. Cassidy lived a gypsy lifestyle and loved it. Her parents had soured her on the idea of marriage and family. Cassidy and Dave were attracted to each other but Dave didn’t do casual sex and he felt his heart died with Anita. But Cassidy and Dave did start a casual affair. But then Cassidy left when she found out she was sick with a disease. I liked this story a lot. It had a lot of growth and healing in it.I laughed at some parts and shed a couple of tears in others.It was a different take with the woman going from place to place and only doing casual relationships as Cassidy felt the need or desire to move on and the man in a very settled life style. I loved the characters of Dave and Cassidy and all the twists and turns they go through. I recommend. I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.

Love Me Tender by Ally Blake is a romance story but not a favorite of mine. It begins okay but then it's slow to finish. It's more or less a spin of a classic tale but it's just not as well written as I would have loved to see. The story is good. the characters are well written and defined. But the follow through was just not there for me.

This was a fun story. It started out a bit slow, but once I got into it I really enjoyed it. Sera gegts a new job working for an eccentric woman designing a website for her new company. Turns out it is for a matchmaking company. Murdoch happens to be doing renovations at the business as well, and when Sera and Murdoch meet, sparks fly but they both try to deny the feelings. As I mentioned, once I got into the story I really enjoyed it. The characters were fun and quirky. It was just the first couple of chapters that didn't really grab me as fast as I like. But it was still a good book and I'm very glad I read it.

Hazel is looking for a Digital Branding Consultant. Serafina is looking for a different job and answers the ad. She gets a feeling that this is the job for her. Construction is going on in the house while Serafina is working for Hazel. Justin Murdoch and his company are working on Hazel's house. Electricity flows between Justin and Serafina when they are near. This story was pretty boring, the characters weren't engaging (except for Hazel) and there were several times that this story could have turned around and shone but it never reached that level. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

This wonderfully charming story will lighten your heart and leave you smiling. It's beautifully written with strong entertaining characters. Definitely one you should grab for an afternoon of relaxation and entertainment. I adored Hazel. The incredibly wise meddling woman who hires Serafina Scott to help her get her website and computer systems up and running for her new matchmaking service. She knows if she can get her friend and contractor Murdoch to slow down enough to get to know Serafina, sparks and love will fly! Will her plan work or go up in flames?? I highly recommend this one!

A fun book with quirky characters that leave you craving more When Serafina Scott takes a job working at a new matchmaking business, she didn't expect her boss would try to set her up with the sexy contractor renovating the house. She is drawn to Justin Murdoch like she has never been to any other man in her life. Murdoch has known Hazel for a long time and he would do anything for her. But he isn't ready to date anyone yet. When he discovers Hazel's plan of fixing him up with Sera, he flat out refuses even though he can't keep his eyes off the girl. How far will Hazel go in order to see Sera and Murdoch in a relationship? This entertaining story was a lot of fun to read. I liked how forward Sera was when she decided she wanted Murdoch. He was stubborn and fought the feelings he had for Sera a bit longer than I thought necessary. But in the end it all made sense. It was hard won love for them both.
