Love on Laird Avenue

Cindy A. Christiansen
Contemporary Romance

"Well, she wasn't entirely independent, but she was working on it."

Tatum want to prove that she can make it on her own, with her own business and her own home.  But it seems that things start going down hill as soon as the papers are signed.  Hiring Ryan Bulldarren is her only choice to fix the house, but Ryan seems to be becoming more involved in her life than she had planned.  Ryan needs to prove to his brother that he can run the business on his own, but Tatum seems to be messing him up.  He can't think straight when he's around her - or say no, no matter how much it will cost him.  As things heat up, both with her blind dates and someone breaking into the house, Ryan may find he wants to do more than just fix up the house.

My Opinion: This was a cute story with some fun scenes and silly situations.  Although the plot was a bit disjointed, it brought you along with an interesting cast of characters with varied histories.  The romance was cute, although I found myself distracted by the hero's less-than-heroic charms.  This was probably personal opinion that made him contradictory, though.  I would have liked more character development which would have given credence to the romance, but it was enjoyable still.  The side characters were shallow and not rooted in reality, but filled in the adversity of the story well.  It was less than I had hoped for, but still a good, light read.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.
