I ended up loving this one. I honestly wasn't sure during the first couple of chapters if I would and here is why...

This book begins at the exact same point the first book in this series starts. I was expecting it to start where the first book ended but instead I was seeing some of the same things happen from someone else's perspective. I already knew who Morgan was in love with because we were told in the first book so it kinda took away the anticipation and wonder of where things were going t

This one is about Morgan, who works in a bank with Rory, her best male friend.

She meets hottie Max when he comes in to open a checking account and agrees to go on a date with him.... but in the middle of the date she realizes she's in love with Rory... who has left town because his grandma died.

Max -- WHO NEEDS HIS OWN HEA -- agrees to take Morgan to see him in South Dakota on his motorcycle (which is just plain weird). Rory's having issues with the estate and an ex girlfriend. He's happy to se

This is the second book in the Main Street Merchant series. There were a couple cross over scenes from the first book told from a different perspective. It was interesting to see the same scene through the eyes of a different character. We meet Morgan in the first book but only get a glimpse into who she really is.

Morgan and Rory are the best of friends. They work together too. Rory has to be the most patient man alive. I loved that they were friends first and knew each other well. This was suc

So sweet!

Morgan was a little harder to connect with than Laurie, but once the story got rolling (on Max's motorcycle, lol), it was really good. By the time I reached the end, I had this big grin that just won't quit, and it's still going strong. I'm loving this series!

When I read romance books there are several things that really make me enjoy the book, they are: clean, good chemistry between the main characters, believable dialogue, and good characters.

For Love or Money was book 2 of the Main Street Merchants series by Paige Timothy. It is a novella, about 100 pages in length. It is about Morgan (roommate to Laurie the main character from book 1) and her journey in discovering love. Does she go for the hot new guy in town? Or does she discover she has feelin

This one was just okay for me. I enjoy this series and it was seeing the characters and returning to this fun town.

It's hard to explain my rating without spoilers, so read at your own risk. (view spoiler)

I really enjoyed this sweet romance. I have not yet read book one in the Main Street Merchants series (although I will definitely be grabbing an ecopy soon to read), so I did not have any fore knowledge of characters in the series. I did not feel at all hampered by this, the story felt completely readable, independent from the series.

The main characters are fun, and likable and their romance develops naturally, even if they recognize it at different times. And their feelings are strengthened thr

MY REVIEW (4 stars/5)

Another book by Paige Timothy for the Main Street Merchants. This story utilizes characters before as Laurie's roommate, Morgan is the focus of this story and she works in the bank with Rory, a co-teller at the bank. Morgan has been having weekly lunches with Rory and still dating others; thinking Rory was a great friend. However, Rory gets called away back home and she realizes she does care for him. Now, she is worried he doesn't care as being at home has old loves and tra

I enjoyed this book even more than the first! Morgan, one of Laurie's roommates, decides that she's just not good enough for all of the good guys. When Max comes into the bank where she works and comes through her line, she's surprised that he shows interest in her. Could he be the one she's been waiting for?

I really enjoyed Morgan and Rory's best friendship and relationship. Rory works with Morgan and is the nicest guy. Morgan is really confident where men are concerned, but she's able to be he

This story made me so happy. I thought Ms. Timothy did a brilliant job of connecting Laurie's and Morgan's stories. They matched up seamlessly. Morgan has a best friend Rory that she has yet to realize she is in love with but when she does figure it out it blindsides her and she can't wait to tell him. The thing is she is out on a date with the ever hottie Max. Oh and Rory is 8 hrs away for a family emergency. Morgan learns so much about letting people in and seeing what great friends she has.

I love clean romances and this one is a definite winner. Having read the 1st book of the series and found it outstanding I decided to try the 2nd of the series. Once again I found a fast paced, page turning, story with true to life characters and a believable story line. I found the way Ms. Timothy’s approach to the series somewhat unique. Many series use the linear approach where book 2 picks up where book 1 leaves off. Not so with book 2 of this series. Instead she takes a parallel approach. B ...more

Morgan is a bank teller and a roommate with Laurie...

While she loves hearing all about Laurie and her escapades in love she is hoping for a love interest of her own.

And then HE walks in...

Max Grayson has just moved to Apen Ridge and needs a new bank account set up.

Easy enough...

Morgan almost feels guilty as she quickly asks the questions she would love to know personally:

* Where do you live?
* Where do you work?
* What is your number?

Of course she will have to forget al

this is the 2nd novella by Paige and this time it features Morgan, Laurie's friend that works at the bank. In the first book it is revealed that Morgan is in love with her coworker Rory and this is their story.

This was just as clean and sweet as the first book and the only thing I'm not sure if I liked was because it runs concurrently to Laurie's story some of the conversations are repeated, but from a different slightly different. Luckily there was only really 1 scene that was th

Morgan and Rory are best friends who work together at the bank and eat lunch together on Tuesdays. Max is a new ski instructor in town who meets Morgan when he comes into the bank to open a new account.

Morgan comes from a very dysfunctional family and so she has a lot of walls up. When the walls come crashing down, she is surprised at her strong feelings. She just needs to get through a few hurdles to be able to let the lucky guy know how she feels. Some of the events in this book overlapped wit

This was a really fun one too. I loved Morgan and the bank. I really loved just how clueless she really was about love and being in it. She thought all she had to do was see the right person and bang! What she didn't realize was that sometimes you need to open your eyes and look around. I thought that it was really fun how you saw some of the same things that happened in Laurie's story here, just through Morgan's eyes this time. I really enjoyed her viewpoint. I thought the plot of this one was ...more

This was a sweet shorter story that focuses on another of the roommates introduced in "And Something Blue." Part of the story overlaps with that one, so the first part wasn't very suspenseful since I already knew several details. But I liked where the story went from there!

“When you forgive someone, you aren’t saying, ‘Everything you did to me was hunky-dory.’ You’re saying, ‘I choose not to let it fester inside me and control me anymore.’ When you forgive someone and you remember what they did, instead of dwelling on it and rehashing it, you push it to the side and focus on something else. Forgiveness is about letting go, not granting absolution.” 0 likes
