With This Kiss by Bella Riley

Love can find you when you least expect it . . .

Fireworks. That's what innkeeper Rebecca Campbell wants. And no matter how close their friendship, she and her former fiancé never shared that. Now, with a broken engagement behind her and a promise she's vowed to keep, Rebecca is determined to make a new life for herself in Emerald Lake. She just never expected sparks to fly this quickly . . .

Coming home and falling for his little brother's girl wasn't Sean Murphy's plan. Rebecca's sweet smile and kind heart make Sean feel at home-something he's never felt before. But a secret lingers between them, and no matter how powerful their attraction, Sean can't give his heart to a woman he can't trust. Or can he?

As the days pass, Rebecca and Sean find it harder and harder to deny their desire. And they are in beautiful Emerald Lake, the perfect place for falling in love . . .

Rebecca Campbell thought life in a small town was going to be boring especially after she got married to Stu Murphy. Boring is the last thing that happens when Stu runs away before the wedding and his brother Sean shows up angry with everyone and smoking hot. Rebecca never felt for Stu what she has drawing her to Sean, what is up with that? Running the inn in Emerald Lake had turned Rebecca’s life around. This entire experience gave her a place that felt like it was home. Sean had been running away from Emerald Lake since he became a young man and no one could ever get him to say why. Sean has decided that his investment in the inn should pay off finally and a longer visit will give him time to check out the rest of Rebecca. With Rebecca’s ability to say what comes into her head without thinking, Sean is getting an earful of honest and brash talk. What Sean really wants is to know what it feels like to have Rebecca’s lips brush up against his in a long, sensual kiss. When things start going bump in the night he wants that to be the two of them as fall into a king sized bed. Rebecca can handle the inn, the festival she has planned, and even the gossip about what is going on in her life. Rebecca is not sure she is ready for Sean and the feelings he brings out in her that she never thought existed. Sean has handled lies and deceit for so long Rebecca’s fresh honesty is warming his heart and freeing whatever negative thoughts he ever had about love and commitment. Sean and Rebecca have an interest in pursuing a relationship. However, the question is do they have enough time to figure out if it is a long-term deal? This second book in the series proves that Bella Riley is a brilliant romance writer. She takes the time to build the story and provide so much depth with the people that are involved you just feel like they are your neighbors. I personally cannot wait for the next book to see what new adventure is going to happen.

Bella Riley pens another warm and loving story in With This Kiss. Innkeeper Rebecca Campbell wants sparks to fly between her and the man she would marry. She was all set to marry her friend Stu Murphy but realized that their was no sizzle between them. Rebecca also promised to keep Stu’s reasons for ending the engagement a secret. She throws herself into running the Inn in Stu’s absence and setting up the Maple festival. Rebecca is not prepared for meeting her ex-fiancé’s brother. From their first meeting there are sparks everywhere. Sean Murphy comes home to Emerald Lake in time for is younger brothers wedding. He finds his brother gone and very much attracted to his brother ex-fiancé. Rebecca is open and honest and unlike any woman Sean has ever met. But Sean’s family is harboring a secret that has plagued Sean for a very long time. This secret has made Sean leery of falling in love with anyone. But his feeling for Rebecca have him rethinking everything he thought he knew as true. As Sean learns the ropes of the inn he and Rebecca find it hard to resist the pull they have towards each other. When the secrets are revealed will their new found love stand the test? The Emerald Lake series is just wonderful. Its packed with emotions and deep feelings. You find yourself drawn into their lives and hoping that their happy ever after is just around the bend. Rebecca and Sean have to work hard to overcome their past but these two you know can make it work. Their chemistry is electric and they can match wits like no other. I am eager to read more books by this author.

With This Kiss by Bella Riley Rebecca takes care of the inn and the festival all by herself now that Stu has left town. She's not getting married so she gave up everything for her friend Andi and Nate to get married at the place she had reserved instead. Everybody was gossiping about how Stu had just up and left. All but the Monday night knitting club cuz they knew the truth. Sean had just flown in from China and had no idea why the rehearsal for the wedding was taking place right now. Rebecca knows the secret Stu left with and she won't be telling anybody. Sean wants to know how to do the job of the innkeeper as he's half owner so Rebecca teachs him everything she knows and how to do the manual tasks. He even looks over the books to make sure things are running smoothly. Her interest in the knitting shop is still high but not as the owner any longer. She makes samples of some of the new yarns as they come in. And now something that had closed her rooms off for 60 years has come to light. She finally is able to sit down with Celeste, Stu's grandmother to find out about the ghosts in her bedroom suite of rooms. The parents have secrets that if are found out will end the family structure. But if they don't tell it will ruin them. The festival, what a grand time to learn about maple syruping in the northeast. Can't wait to read her other books, enjoyed this one very much.
