I'll try to make this review quick, but this book just did not work for me. I heard of West's other novels and heard that they happened to be very good, so maybe this being my first work from her wasn't the best book of choice.

I found no connection to the characters. This felt like it should have been an emotional book, but instead whatever hope I had for some feels turned into a sort of anger.

The whole preparation for her mother's funeral dragged out for too many pages. I get that Sava

Y'all, this is my total heart book. I love the characters, the town, every single thing about it. So what can you expect?

This is such a sweet romance! Savannah comes back to her hometown after the death of her mother. She plans to take over her family legacy and run the Bed and Breakfast. She doesn't know that the B&B is actually in financial distress and Logan Park is working for a company to help take over the B&B. Logan was the best friend of her deceased boyfriend, Will. Savannah has always had feelings for Logan but didn't know he felt the same for her. After Will died, she spent time with Logan and t ...more

Loved it!

I feel like I am starting to sound like a broken record when I review books by Melissa West but I almost don’t even care. Trust me when I say that Melissa West needs to be on your radar. I fell in love with her writing in the YA genre but she has easily won me over with both her New Adult books and now her Adult Romance books. Your B&B or Mine has a lot of things – wonderful characters, a story that pulled me into their lives, and of course plenty of swoon and banter.

Rating: 4.5/5

This is a delightful bliss second chance romance involving overcoming feelings of inadequacy, acknowledging that what your parents are or were don't have to determine your own value but still fighting for family heritage.

As a teenager, Savannah Hale lived in Maple Cove, Georgia at the B&B run by her parents. She used to go round with Will and Logan, Will being her boyfriend, though it is really Logan she loves. Will and Logan joined the armed services and, unfortunately,Will was

Your B&B or Mine was a sweet and emotional romance.

My heart went out to both Savannah and Logan, I liked both characters and watching them work through their miscommunications, heartache and doubts left me with a heart full of happy feels.

I'm a fan of Melissa West's writing and once again she's delivered a touching and sweet romance with an entertaining plot and likeable characters.
I highly recommend Your B&B or Mine!

“No goodbye, no explanation. He allowed her to hate him instead of love him. It was the second hardest thing he’d ever done in his life, but at the same time, it was the right thing to do.”

Your B&B or Mine? is another great hit from Melissa West. It’s one of those stories that pulls you in, captivates you and just warms your heart.

Your B&B or Mine? follows the story of Logan and Savannah. Savannah never planned on returning home; the memories there were just too painful. However, when tr

Savannah and Logan share a common love for a lost friend. Guilt and miscommunication make them hesitant around eachother. Toss in the fact that Logan's job is to get her to sell her mom's B&B and you've got the makings of a sweet romance. It was a good read.

A heartwarming blend of Stars Hollow and BlueBell, YOUR B&B OR MINE? is small town romance at its best! I fell in love with Logan, cheered for Savannah, and am ready to move to Maple. An unforgettable start to an incredbile new series. I'm hooked!

Savannah Hale has never really wanted to return to her hometown of Maple Cove, because she isn't ready to deal with all the memories that are waiting there for her, or being subjected to the small town gossip mill again. Growing up in Maple Cove was hard for her, everybody always knew her business and had a opinions about it, most of which weren't exactly welcoming, so first chance she got to escape it she was gone. Her only bright spot in Maple Cove was her boyfriend Will, and when he chose to ...more

I received an eARC of the book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Second chance romances are always a hit or miss with me – mostly because I as a reader tend to realise that the reasons why characters break up – majority of those reasons (or rather mistakes) are something that they never learn from and do you know absolutely how frustrating that is to a third person, because let me tell you not being able to shake some sense into people are basically fictional is damn frustrating!

Thanks to Netgalley, Bliss & Entangled Publishing for the ARC. 'Your B&B or Mine' covered so many bases with this story!! I loved how I could relate on so many levels with Savannah. She, like me, lost her parents at far too young an age. There's a fair balance of the emotions of grief without overwhelming the reader. This book will pull at your heart. I loved the descriptions of this southern town, and of a B&B that has the potential to be something more, and is the key really to Log ...more

I'll pretty much read any book set in the south and this one was adorable.

Love love loved Savannah and Logan. I loved their familiarity and the fact that there was so much UST I could have drown in it. There were a few bitchy characters, but that's half the fun of a small town plot line and these girls delivered.

Of course there was some angsty times, but nothing too horrible. And I was beyond thrilled to get the epilogue. There were a lot of flashbacks {it seemed like every chapter started wit

Melissa West knows how to make me cry and smile at the same time perfectly. Your B&B or Mine? was such a great romance read. It had all the elements there - a chance, a B&B, a love that can't be unseen and a small town who shares no secrets. Savannah and Logan made my heart go crazy in so many scenes and it made me want to read until the end. It's a short read but definitely enjoyable.

This was an awesome read! A great blend of small town romance, a bit of angst, a touch of drama, and a whole lot of forgiveness. Savannah and Logan are great characters. I fell in love with Logan right away. Savannah took a little time to warm up to but in the end I adored her. This one gives us a great lesson of moving on with life and going after what you really want.

Definitely one I recommend!

I am always looking forward to another Melissa West book, so when I saw this one, I knew I wanted to read it! It sounded super cute with a small-town vibe and I just love those! Sure enough, it was just what I needed to snuggle up with as the weather turned colder and the days shorter. It was a cute, sweet read and I enjoyed seeing Logan and Savannah try to maneuver their way around one another... and their lingering teenage feelings!

You know those books that give you the warm fuzzies? Your B&B or Mine? is definitely one of those.  Melissa West did a fantastic job of bringing the Southern charm, and sweet romance.

I adored both Savannah and Logan.  Both characters are stubborn, and refuse to let go of whatever guilt and regrets they have.  They obviously have a spark, and I don't see a point in fighting it.  Seeing these two characters bicker and relax

Savannah used to be Logan's best friend's girl -- until Will was killed in combat. And even though Savannah was engaged to Will, Logan was the first boy she cared about.

Super sweet story and a great start of a new series.

We have Savannah and Logan, they were great friends in the past, but because of some things that happened in the past, and well, life, they ended up being separated for several years.

Now Savannah is back in town, not only for her mother’s funeral, but also to settle things in the B&B her family owns. Her two siblings don’t care much about running it, so it’s only Savannah who could do it, but does she want to? On top of this, she’s carrying

What a beautifully written story! I could connect to Savannah so strongly. It is so hard to lose your mom. And her emotions were so raw and close to the edge. I could feel her pain. It has been 20 years for me and that pain never goes away. Some of the scenes Savannah went through, I could remember from my own experience. And in this story when Logan showed up for her during the ceremony, tears flowed down my face, it was so sweet.

It’s hard for Savannah Hale to return to Maple Cove. Since her hometown is bound to dredge up the most painful of memories that she’s tried her hardest to get over. But after the death of her mother, returning is her best chance to keep the family legacy alive. She knows turning things around isn’t going to be easy when the threat of foreclosure hangs over her head, and the B&B desperately needs repairs. The question is – can she return the B&B to its

I have been wanting to read Melissa's work and when this chance came up I was excited and not disappointed either. The story which I wish was longer flowed great, characters were exchanging and the plot was something different than everything out there! When Savannah is losing everything she loves she either has to fight for it or just accept fate and let it go. Definitely look forward to more of her work in the future. Honest review in exchange for ARC.

I have been desperate for a sweet and easy romance. Something without all the complications and stomping of emotions.

This book left me feeling utterly wrung out. Not because of the grief or the guilt or other such emotions experienced by the characters, but because it made me angry and frustrated and I wanted to smack certain characters on the back of the head. This might also have been because I wasn’t feeling too well when I read this, but it just proves that you need to be in a good mood before you pick this up or it might make you feel worse.

Maple Cove reminds me a bit of Gilmore Girls. The small town where everyone knows your business and is very leery of change. I really want to go to the bakery, my mouth was watering reading about

I enjoyed Your B & B or Mine a lot. Not only was the story well-written and engaging, but the two main characters were fascinating and compelling, and they pulled me into their story and the town of Maple Cove right away. Author Melissa West made it easy to understand that these two people had a deep and confusing history together, but also an electric pull that, despite spending numerous years apart, continued to tug at
