Margo wrote one of my all-time favorite books, "More Than This" and I can't wait to read her first romance!


I really enjoyed this story. It's sexy and sassy with a very sweet ending. What I loved most was Leslie's inner journey to stand up for herself.

*Book source ~ Many thanks to the author for providing a review copy in exchange for an honest review.

I got an electronic copy of Just Like That for free from the author. If I'd known how much I'd enjoy it, though, I would've bought it, anyway.

Just Like That is the story of Leslie, who works in high-end retail hell and whose boss takes advantage of her ambition and ability to solve problems. She breaks up with her milquetoast boyfriend of four years (it would be five, except for their year-long break), and her best friend then goes on a mission to match her up with the right guy.

This is a novell

If you've ever watched The Devil Wears Prada, then you've seen the core of this story, yet author Margo Candela managed to tell a story that although familiar, was unique in its own way. Leslie, overworked, underpaid and unappreciated by her boss, was yearning for growth in her relationships at work and in her personal life.

I loved the frank and unapologetic telling of a single woman's life. Yes, I know that this is not the life of every woman, but I believe it is the life of more single women t

Review: Leslie Quinn is a hard-working woman with a nagging boss and a man-child boyfriend still living with his parents. The first thing that came to mind was: why was she wasting her time with this loser? What a slob! It was painstakingly obvious that this guy was in it for the twin package—a mother and a sex partner all rolled into one.

To me, Leslie seemed like a smart and level-headed woman, so I was perplexed at why she would throw hersel

Sassy and sweet little novella. Something of a Cinderella story - the besieged stylist whose manager won't give her any good clients, but then she hits the jackpot with Mr. Big, er, Mr. Tate.

It's a quick, fun little romantic fantasy, and I really liked the author's voice, not to mention the pampering she gets from Mr. Tate. Looking forward to reading more of this author's work.

SweetSpots; Sexy. Smart. Sassy.

I really enjoyed this Contemporary Romance novella! Living in Ohio myself, I got a kick out of all the Ohio and OSU references. LOL I could definitely see this becoming more if the author chose! Excited to read more from this little series! Full Review Coming Soon!

I really enjoyed this short story. I really think it'd make a phenomenal full length book and would have loved to read more. Ms. Candela effortlessly packs in a complete story in under 50 pages.
