Prah, Constantine & Baryeh Reviews #review #romance #love

Autumn is my favorite season: I love the crisp fresh air, smells wafting from our local cider mill, apples, apple cider, apple pies! Watching the leaves change from emerald greens to russets, golden, and reds. 
What's your favorite season?

Our team read and reviewed 
Meant to Be 
by Melody Grace.

Poppy Somerville believes in happily-ever-after. It’s the reason her romance novels have won devoted readers all over the world—and why she’s broken off her engagement just weeks before the wedding instead of settling for less than true love. Escaping to her aunt’s beach cottage in Sweetbriar Cove, Poppy is looking for inspiration to end her writer’s block and finish her new book. She just wasn’t counting on the handsome, gruff contractor making such a racket next door…

Cooper Nicholson doesn’t believe in soul-mates. He thought he’d found his forever once, and the world proved him wrong, so when the cute brunette comes storming over and demands he keep the noise down, romance is the last thing on his mind. But his new neighbor is full of surprises, and soon, their chemistry is too hot to ignore. 

As they grow closer, they discover fiction has nothing on the plot twists life has in store. But will Cooper find a way to let go of the past and risk his heart again? And can Poppy find her happy ending — on and off the page?

Cathrina's Review:

If you're in the mood for a sweet and steamy read, then It Meant To Be is for you. 

Poppy is a likable main character, who realizes the guy she plans on marrying isn't her true love. And she believes in HEA. After leaving this guy behind, she takes refuge in her Aunts cottage on the lake. A perfect setting to finish her novel. Along comes the good-looking and feisty Cooper telling her there isn't any true love stories. He's been burned in the past. But there's a sweltering intensity between Poppy and Cooper which sets a few scenes on fire.  

I enjoyed reading the ups and downs of this sweet book, and I think you will too. 

Now head over to read what Nana Prah and Empi Baryeh thought of the book. 


  1. I got bored with the story midway. It was sweet and hot, but I didn't find the conflict strong enough to drive the story.

    1. There wasn't a major conflict, true. It dealt with misconstrued feelings. But I liked it.

  2. I agree. Although I thought Cooper needed a little more maturity.

    1. Cooper was scarred and never healed. Yes, he had to grow, which, in the end he did.

  3. Fall is my favorite time of year too! :)
