My Review: (minor spoilers)
This is a story that begs for the Happily Ever After. Meet Rebecca. See Rebecca fall on hard times. See Rebecca think she will wait for boy from 'right' side of tracks. See Rebecca meet boy from 'wrong' side of tracks. See Rebecca fall in love with boy from 'wrong' side of tracks. See Rebecca confused. There, folks is the story in a nutshell. The question becomes, will she follow her heart or her head?

The Good: Finn makes the entire book worth reading! My husband has

Heather Thurmeier has once more created a fun, exciting love story that will keep you turning the pages until the satisfying, emotional conclusion. 5 out of 5 stars and highly recommended for fans of contemporary romance!
Love or Luxury is the 3rd book in the Meadow Ridge Romance series, it can be read entirely as a stand alone.

When you have grown up in a lifestyle you can't afford but it is all you have ever known what will you do to hang on to that life?
For Rebecca being the daughter of the chauffeur allowed her to grow up with the wealthy children of the rich families in "The Meadows" and until she was out on her own really knew no other life. Now she has to pay rent and bills while keeping that part of her se

Not a new story: Rebecca (rich girl) looses trust fund and now must ‘earn’ her way. She believes that all her problems could be and will be solved if she were to marry a rich “Meadow Man” (Meadow is the town/city where this story takes place) and is looking forward to being a ‘Trophy Wife’. In fact that was one of her goals in life. Insert “What the heck” smiley face here. Seriously? Unfortunate, it is true. Not only is it true b

I admit to having a tough time getting into this story. The heroine, Rebecca, is who we meet first and I disliked her very much. She seemed superficial, careless, and very much a snob more concerned about coordinating her name brand handbag with her wardrobe than paying her rent. Thankfully, as time passes, we see a different side to her, but the two sides vie for position through much of this book.

Finn, though, was amazing. A not-quite-perfect hero with traits that were just awesome. He was ha
Love or Luxury is a pleasant story reminiscent of a Hallmark movie. It's a bit predictable but there's something comforting about it that draws the reader in and has you rooting for a HEA. The main couple are opposites in many ways but when they're together they bring out the best in one another and prove that love knows no bounds.

Rebecca starts out as the proverbial rich girl who's fallen on hard times. She's known no other life than her friends and neighborhood of Meadow Ridge and is desperate
I really enjoyed this latest story in the Meadow Ridge series and the author managed to redeem the character of Rebecca whom I actually liked this time. Rebecca is no longer living the life of luxury and has become more humbled and vulnerable yet remains feisty. I loved the character of Finn who's sexy, down-to-earth and a genuine kind of guy. Rebecca and Finn collide into each other's lives when he almost runs her down on his motorcycle. As Rebecca and Finn grow closer, she needs to decide her ...more
