Review: Meant to be Yours by Susan Mallery
Wedding coordinator Renee Grothen isn’t meant for marriage. Those who can, do. Those who can’t, plan. But she never could have planned on gorgeous, talented thriller writer Jasper Dembenski proposing—a fling, that is. Fun without a future. And the attraction between them is too strong for Renee to resist. Now she can have her no-wedding cake…and eat it, too.
After years in the military, Jasper is convinced he’s too damaged for relationships. So a flirtation—and more—with fiery, determined Renee is way too good to pass up…until his flame becomes his muse.
Renee is an expert at averting every crisis. But is she finally ready to leap into the one thing that can never be controlled: love?
One of my favorite things is reading Susan Mallery's romances. I just love them. I think it's because it's also about the people and not just the end result. Mallery builds a world that seems alive and real. I enjoy that in my authors.
We are back in Happily, Inc and ready to visit. From the moment you meet Jasper, you want to know more about him. There is a cloud of mystery about him that needs to be blown away. Pretty quickly you get to know him. Which makes you really want to see him happy. He's a wonderful guy that doesn't really see that. He's happier and healthier than he believes.
He needs to realize that he's dealing with his past which is making his mental health so much better. I think it takes him so long to believe this because for him having an issue is almost like its part of his body.
I'm so glad when it finally dawned on him that his new life, his friends, his dog and the woman he loves has made his stronger.
You'll enjoy Renee too. She truly loves her job and works hard at it. You wants the best for her brides and grooms and works hard to make sure of it. The funny part is that she never wants to get married herself so you have to wonder why she'd take a job like this.
Poor Renee wants to feel part of this small town but as much as she starts to get close to people and becomes friends with them she all has this worry in the back of her head that what would happen if they met her mother.
When mom comes to town she finds out. You won't be able to not love her mother. She's a wonderful person who has worked very hard for her and her daughter. Notice how I don't mention a father? Might be why Renee doesn't want to marry. Silly Renee. Love doesn't care about your hangups.
These two together are so much fun. They really get each other and love each other anyway. That's what true love is.
Meant to Be Your is a sweet, fun, happy romance that made me feel so good reading it. I love this series and if you haven't yet read it, you really should. I would read the series in order only because it reads better that way.
So, have any of you read Susan Mallery before? If so, what's your favorite series or book?
