Love it! Fantastic read!

This sweet romance is a perfect read for your lunch hour (if you're a fast reader like I am). I give it 4.1 out of five stars.
My biggest issues with the story (and some of these are byproducts of the short word count required for a novella):
1. I didn't really understand Harper's dad's and brother's objections. That needed to be fleshed out more for me to believe it.
2. The romance went too quickly from "let's date" to "in bed together" (which isn't described since this is sweet, but it happens).

Family feuds. Friends becoming lovers. Sheryl Winters ain't holdin' back on this one! She sheathes these pages with endearing, sweet romance.

Oh, you wish to be tossed into the romantic abyss? Your wish is my command! Let's begin.

I'll admit it. I'm a sucker for stories where the protagonist follows their dream even when it seems unlikely they'll succeed. Throw in a sexy SEAL? YES. I'm in.

The romance between Harper and Patrick was adorable. I would've loved if the story was a little longer so we could experience more as their relationship grew stronger, but I recognize that this is a novella and I think the author showed a nice progression while still keeping the story on the shorter side.

I loved the representation of st

I love a sweet romance. This one is everything I like and then some. Harper Gray has to deal with the unsupportive men in her family while trying to keep the family business afloat. When Patrick O'Brien comes back to town, he encourages her to follow her dream to take over Just Burgers.
I really liked how the author showed the different dynamics within Harper's family and how the relationship between Harper and Patrick developed and wasn't forced. I would love to see more of Harper and Patrick.

This is a sweet romantic tale that left me feeling good. Suitable for every taste in romantic fiction. Harper's strength and courage shine through and the support she receives from the man of her dreams makes all the difference. My only regret is I wished for more!

The story is promising! They are both good for one another however I want more of their story. Especially, once they are a couple. The story is short and because of the length, a lot is left out.

Such a cute story! Harper has big dreams for her father's burger joint but he's signing it over to her jerk of a brother. However, an old friend named Patrick tells her she needs to fight for her dreams.
This is her journey of following her dreams with a bit of romance thrown in. I don't want to write more and spoil anything but it's a cute, quick read. Some things may seem impossible but a solution is always there. It may not be what you always envisioned but there is a solution.

I wasn't sure how receptive I would be towards this book. But I must admit I'm happy I gave it a shot!
Harper's place is a sweet, clean romance about Harper and Patrick.
With it being a short novella of course there were parts that I missed because I guess word count didn't allow for it. I just really wish the author would've given us a bit more as to why Harper's father and brother treated her the way they did. They seemed to be the k

You can't go wrong with a woman who knows what she wants and works hard for it. Throw in a Navy Seal, rotten inconsiderate family and a dream and you get a very good story. I wanted to smack Harper's brother. The dad was not quite as bad, just set in his ways. All in all, a very good, quick read. Would definitely read more from this author.

Had a lot of potential and its an enjoyable short story but I did have a few issues. Its hard to believe the romance between Patrick and Harper. We dont know their past. Needed to be fleshed out more. I think they went to school together but thats all we know. I mean he obviously liked her and she liked him but with no real interaction which made it so hard for me to believe. He was in the Navy most of the time. It was definitely rushed. I liked the banter between them but I just really think we ...more

Harper is between a rock and a hard place. Torn between keeping her family burger place and running it on her own and selling it because her father thinks she cant do it and would rather her brother ran it. Until she gets an unexpected confidence booster, old friend Patrick who tells her to take them all on and beat them and prove she can do it. Harper and Patrick embark on a romance with him being fully behind her, until he goes back overseas for a few months leaving her alone to finish what sh ...more

This is a short read that you'll want to be longer by the time you've finished. I was so engrossed that I couldn't put it down. All Harper needs is a little nudge from the right person, Patrick, to show everyone just how sucessfully she can run her family's buisness. I love Harper's will and detemination to prove to the men in her life/family that she is more capable than they give her credit for. There wasn't any part of this story that I didn't love. I only wish that there was more. I certainl ...more

A sweet epicurean romance. Harper dreams of taking over the family business but it seems as though the men in her life are dead set against it. Coming from a strong line of women, and with the encouragement of a good man at her back, she discovers that dreams really do come true. Short and sweet, this story was cute and filled with everyday drama and hope. Lovely read and I would definitely read more from Ms. Winters.

I really enjoyed this book. The story quickly grabbed my attention and kept me glued to the pages. The story is fast paced and great when you want something quick to read. I look forward to reading more from this author.

It wasn't a bad story. I didn't really see it as a romance but more of a strong woman trying to pave her own way.
I enjoy Harper and liked her journey as she struggled through all the obstacles in her way to become the person she wanted to be.

I voluntarily reviewed an arc from the author.
