Nick and Sumeera match made in heaven

Reconnecting always have those inner doubts of whether one is doing the right thing for the right reasons. I agree and am a firm believer in planning and preparation, but I also understand that God's plan trumps anything man may put in place.

As Sharon, takes us on the journey of Nick and Sumeera is was great to see the Jenkins family play such a pivotal role. Not to mention I love the fatherly advice Lewis provided Nick. Both when seeking to obtain

I loved this book!

I recently discovered Sharon C. Cooper through a collaboration she did with two other authors (loved that too!). Including this one, I have read a total of five of Sharon’s books and Love Under Contract is by far my favorite! The love story of Nick and Sumeera is so real and endearing.

The story starts after their breakup...and after Sumeera walks out of Nick’s life (Right on sister!)...after he told her he was not looking for a long-term commitment....YET. Maybe he didn’t know

For Real Love Constructed!

Sumerra Robinson was 33 and ready to settle down. Nick Jenkins was the man she had recently broken up with because she felt they wanted different things out of their relationship. Nick was definitely about his money, but he was also about finding his life love. Although Nick was not ready in the beginning of the story, as his heart grew in love he warmed to the idea and the attraction grew stronger love was bound to reconnect in both their hearts. Shortly after they

A great start to the series

I was a little bit apprehensive of this book after reading the synopsis as I thought it would be boring. How wrong I was. This is a beautiful love story of two people who are in love but just couldn’t communicate their love for each other.
Well written. Nick wasn’t too alpha male which is refreshing and Meera was a strong and sensitive female.
The story flowed well for me. No grammatical errors which is a major plus for me.
Totally loved how the other characters blended

Four and a half

Sumeera and Nick are a lovely couple and it was enjoyable to see Nick come to terms with his destiny. Nick was big and sexy and very alpha male, but he was also gentle, thoughtful and caring and that made for a potent mix. I felt that Sumeera’s situation with her father was a bit unresolved at the end, but in these family dynasty stories perhaps you can’t really expect everything to tie up neatly. I am definitely buying the next one—I can’t wait to see Nate get his!

Nick and Sumeera was a match made in heaven, however Sumeera wanted to be married and have children, whereas, Nick wanted to work on his career and plans before getting married and starting a family; that is until Sumeera broke up with him and tried to move on with her life. The problem with that was neither one of them wanted to date other people because their heart truly belonged to one another! This was a very interesting love story that kept my attention from start to finish! Awesome Read!
Connie
Sumeera has huge trust issues and now I understand why. Her father, Russell, is a cruel, controlling, bully. He lied to Sumeera's mother, Mona, and strung her along. Now 35 years later he still has not married her like he promised. Swearing that that will never happen to her, Sumeera walked away from Nick, the man who finally captured her heart. But if he still wasn't ready to get married after dating for 7 months then she was moving on! Awesome story!

At a loss for words..

This was an amazing second chance at love story.. Nick and Sumeera's story kept me turning pages, I was unable to put this book down..Nick was the man of every woman's dream yet he never dreamed of settling down until he met Sumeera.. Sumeera was ready to settle down and start a family, she wanted it to. be with nick but she felt he was ready...being a Jenkins Nick had to win what was his.thank you sharon for another awesome story...

Enjoyable

Sweet love story, well written. Reminds me of the old adage of you love something and you let it go if it is really yours it will return. Such is the story of Nick and Sumeeera. She took the risk not willing to settle like her mother did but the difference was Nick recognised that he wanted to have her in his life more than anything else.
It was an enjoyable afternoon read!

Love conquers all!

I love Nick and Sumeera’s story! Despite everything negative they had to endure during their breakup and renewed relationship, love conquered all and brought them back together! A new baby. Marriage. Rekindled relationships. Courage and love lead the story in this book. I look forward to indulging in Book 2!

Awesome

I always love a good Jenkins Family book and Sharon did not disappoint me. I really want a follow up about that Russell charaw, but I'm good if we never hear from him again.

I like the way Nick tried to get Sumeera back when he realized he did want to be with. Well, that didn't work and when Nick found out that Sumeera was expecting and it was his how he took care of her when she left the hospital.

I enjoyed the friendship and love Nick and Sanders shared. I also enjoyed her friendship with the fireman. The father ? I wonder if he truly is her father. Anyway, keep writing and I will keep reading.

I usually love Sharon's books, but that one was a hard read. A little disappointed honestly. But I'm gonna start the next one, hoping it's better than this one. Still got mad love for her though

Really.

It took me a week to finish this book. It was just ok. I figured out early on what her problem was.. First time reading this author's book. Just was not my kind of story. Just didn't feel it. Enough said.

This was a very good book I'm so glad that they finally got together and that her mom finally left that man. It was a good book I hope I get to know what their baby is.

Summeera and Nick

Sumeera goes after what she wants be it personal or business but she realizes she bit off more than she can chew with Nick. I love how the author shows one of the key to relationships is seeing things from the other persons view.

Love wins.

It was a story about a woman who wasn't sure if she really knew what love was, after watching her mother and her father. She found love after giving it a chance.
