Leavittinlove Review ~ “Five I want to make you happy stars”
I felt ALLLLL the feels with this one. The Connor family has a knack for doing that but i NEVER thought the family Detective Will Connor, would have such a soft spot for Miss Paige. Will and Paige meet by happenstance- He did a drive by Paige’s grandmothers in for a noise complaint. Paige was there hanging out with girlfriends as she is newly back in town. Will insists upon meeting that an alarm system is needed, and to check for sig of forced entry. Their first “date” if you will is alarm shopping, and from there our story unfolds.
Like the other installments, this can be read as a standalone, but I would suggest catching up on the other Connor family members. This novel contains all the goods: Connor family dinners, Bennett family meddling, Swooony moments, and sweet humor.
The story evolves, and we learn more about Paige’s day job, and her very unfortunate a**hole of a boss. We also learn about her rooted fears in Wills profession that stemmed from her mother and fathers relationship/career. This was so beautifully written, the authenticity flew off the pages. The ending was one I didn’t see coming. Such a fun and creative idea!
Blake’s presence and “help” with the groveling was my favorite. 1- because Blake and 2- because we see another side to Will. Layla does such a wonderful job leading up to that point, that I was flipping the pages at lightening speed to see where she was taking us. This was such a fun loving, low angst, low drama read. Everything I needed, and it felt “Meant for me”
About MEANT FOR YOU
Will Connor lives his life by simple rules: take care of those he loves, give one hundred percent to his job, and never ignore his instincts. So when he meets Paige, he doesn’t plan to ignore their crazy chemistry, or the way her pretty smile strips him of all defenses…
As the development director of a nonprofit, Paige Lamonica has met her fair share of people. But Will is something else entirely. The sexy detective is a little too confident. With sculpted muscles and a chiseled jawline, he’s also far too easy on the eye. She loves that he goes toe-to-toe with her at every turn.
When Will asks her to attend his sister’s wedding with him, Paige thinks he just wants to throw some relatives who want to play matchmakers off his scent.
She couldn’t be more wrong. Will wants her.
When she teases him, he teases her right back. When she pushes his buttons, he repays her with dangerously hot flirting…and even hotter kisses.
As they spend more time together, Paige discovers there’s more to Will than she thought. With every layer she peels away, she craves more…
But as the daughter of an Army man, Paige has never wanted to get involved with someone on the force.
Can Will persuade her to explore their growing connection with him?
