Release+Teview-Call Her Mine-Melissa Foster
Title: Call Her Mine
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Fall in love in Harmony Pointe, where hearts are lost, found, and sometimes misplaced…and everyone get a happy ever after.
If a woman can’t find love in the quaint town of Harmony Pointe, it’s sure to find them—whether they’re looking for it or not. Here, the remaining single Dalton siblings are about to discover that they’re next in line to get swept away by love. A sweet and sexy spin-off of Melissa’s beloved Sugar Lake series.
Ben Dalton has always been honest, except where his heart is concerned. He’s been in love with his best friend—saucy, smart-mouthed Aurelia Stark—forever. But Ben’s a planner, and timing has never been on his side. When he finally decides to make his move, Aurelia beats him to the punch with a move of her own—to a different town.
Aurelia loves her new life in the charming town of Harmony Pointe. She has a great apartment and her very own bookstore, and best of all, the sinfully hot, commitment-phobic friend she’s crushed on for years is no longer just around the corner. Maybe she’ll finally be able to leave her unrequited love behind and move on.
But when a baby is left on Ben’s front porch—a baby that is presumably his—Aurelia is there for him. Neither one knows the first thing about babies, but how hard can it be? Ben and Aurelia are catapulted into a world of love, laughter, and tracking down the baby mama, and it might even add up to a very happily ever after . . . just not one either of them expects.
The Harmony Pointe series is published by Montlake Romance and will be available in paperback and audio formats, and exclusively in digital format for Kindle and Kindle apps. Download a free Kindle reading app here: http://bit.ly/FreeKindle_App
“best friend to lover, insta-family story, 3.5 stars”
First off, I want to tell you that I love Foster, I really do. And if insta-family/surprise baby isn’t your jam then turn around and check out another one of her books. I knew who Ben and Aurelia were before going into Call Her Mine. So, I knew the secondary characters, the family everything. And I loved them!
Aurelia and Ben have been best friends forever but its time for her to move on. She wants more and knows she doesn’t have a shot at Ben. Until a baby is left on his door. Ben has always wanted Aurelia but its never been the right time. When a baby is left on his doorstep will it bring them closer together or further apart?
Now I have a confession, I hate novellas, but I honestly wish Call Her Mine was one. The story was good, don’t get me wrong. But I felt like I could have cut out a good chunk of the middle where they were trying to find their parenting feet. They fell into coupledom extremely easy and never wavered, which is great! But it made me kind of bored, I was waiting for the shoe to drop. And it kind of did at like 90% when we are usually wrapping up a story. Even then with that ordeal I didn’t get the satisfaction from it or all my questions answered.
So, I feel like if she would have cut out some of the day to day struggle and moved the problem further in and gave us absolute resolution there I would have been happier. Even with all that said Call Her Mine is a good book, if you’re into insta-family and insta-love. Because let’s face it, it would feel like insta-love to anyone who doesn’t know these two.
