The Way You Are
Rule No. 2: Don't sleep with the grumpy mechanic.
I thrive on taking a few ordinary flowers and turning them into something breath-taking. But no matter how reliable my talent or sunny my personality is, my delivery van isn’t. It has a habit of letting me down at the last minute leaving me no choice but to call for help.
When the grumpy, sexy as all get-out mechanic finally offers some assistance, I also show him my grandfather’s prized muscle car, hoping he can restore it. After one hot night on the hood, ignoring my attraction to him is impossible. I know how he tastes, how he makes me feel.
Jake makes my blood sing on every level. Add to that a good dose of attitude and a body to die for. He's also a bad boy with a past. A fixer-upper.
Except the only thing I have time to fix up right now is the farm I’m renovating to become a wedding venue. Or maybe he's worth the risk after all.
Best Lea Coll Book
This is my absolute favorite Lea Coll book. I have read every book of hers and thought some of her previous books were the best but this tops them all!
The Way You Are has to be the way every woman wants the man she loves to feel about her/make her feel! So romantic! Of course there are roadblocks and pitfalls but the end result couldn't be sweeter...
Lily is a very talented florist who is desperately trying to get her business off the ground, make it profitable and successful. The key to that may be trying to keep her old VW van, Berta, part of an inheritance from her beloved grandmother, on the road. Between the van and the farm, Lily is determined to make this work, if only to show her mother she isn't a complete failure.
Jake is a grumpy mechanic who's sure he will never have a meaningful relationship but can't get Lily out of his head.
A grumpy/sunshine romance must read!
Book two of the Ever After series gives its readers a grumpy/sunshine romance story that didn’t disappoint. Lily’s character is such a happy person with smiles that light up anyone who meets her. Her creative soul reaches everyone from her flower shop, Petals. Jake is the total opposite of Lily, his grumpy bear attitude takes a lot to get used to, but when he meets Lily, she starts breaking through his wall. What happens next was a sweet, heartwarming addition to the series. I loved how together Lily and Jake finds their HEA with all the obstacles that faced them past and present.
The Way You Are
Insecurities, family issues and of course finding love. Lily opened her shop Petals with the inheritance she received when her grandmother passed away. Jake is the town mechanic who has a grumpy personality. Jake and his friend Ryan own Harbor Garage and Service Repair Center. The HEA ending was amazing to read. These two overcome so much to finally getting their forever together.
