Synopsis: In Happily Inc, love means never having to say “I do”…
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? (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts: Meant to Be Yours is a fun and cute read. As soon as I read the synopsis, I knew it was something that I wanted to read. It just sounded like such a good time from the start.
I enjoyed the characters of Renee and Jasper. I love that Renee is a Wedding Coordinator. It's just the kind of job that seems perfect for a romantic comedy sort of set up. I guess it just called to mind the movie The Wedding Planner. I mean, this book and that movie are different, but it just set up that association in my head. I also love that Jasper is a thriller writer. I do love a good thriller, so I thought it was interesting to see an author as the love interest. The characters were a lot of fun.
I enjoyed the situations they got themselves into. The journey of their relationship. It was just a good time to read. It was fun, it was enjoyable, which is really all I ask from a book. It needs to entertain me.
I have not read any other books in the Happily Inc. series, but I don't think it really mattered. I was able to read Meant to Be Yours without feeling lost or confused. I would maybe like to read the other books in the series just to see what I missed.
If a sweet little romance is your thing, and the synopsis sounds intriguing to you, then I'd definitely recommend giving Meant to Be Yours a read. It was fun. I'm glad I got to enjoy it.
Thanks so much to the Publisher for providing me with an early copy for review.
