He feels pretty bad about his mates behaviour towards Haven and ends up lending his ear to her so she can vent.

I really enjoyed this story. It was my first from this author. We meet Haven right as her world gets flipped all around and we meet Tyler, a friend of Haven's ex. From the prologue, you'll feel emotions galore. This story line was super sweet, but definitely steamy at times. I enjoyed the two main characters and thought they were just really great together. And the other characters in the story were just as lovable. I don't know if there will be more books within this world, but I ho

There are only two things about this book that I have issues with but we will get to those shortly. This book is FAN-FREAKING-TASIC!!! Starts off grabbing your heart for a character in a horrible state/lifestyle moves you along to showing progress with Haven and Tyler after horrible events, and starts a slow burn teasing that just about drove me INSANE!! There is sexiness, sweetness, heartfelt moments throughout this entire story that just make you want to take these two

The beginning of Beautiful March is so emotionally charged and sucked me in immediately. I can’t get over how much I loved this book and how much it touched my heart.

What I loved the most about Beautiful March is that Tyler and Haven had such amazing chemistry and I knew they were destined for great things. Tyler is quite the charming and southern gentleman with a dirty mouth and a whole lot of sexiness. Haven is a career driven woman with the perfect combination of a sweet and sassy personalit

Beautiful March was a phenomenal southern romance that gripped me. Tyler and Haven’s story is romance novel perfection. Pastore weaved a balance between emotions and humor that will surely captivate you the way it did me. Tyler’s emotional prologue and backstory were heartbreaking, yet he persevered regardless. Haven’s own emotional struggles from her teen years and facing them being back in her hometown made it so relatable. Two strong and independent characters that aren’t afraid to show the o ...more

There is so much depth to this book. A depth you really don’t expect. Right from the prologue you’re wondering where this book is going to take you and let me tell you, it’s quite the journey.

I thought I was going to read the basic “girl gets dumped, has a fling with the handsome Hero” etc etc etc, story. What I got was, yes - a bit of the “girl gets dumped” but Haven and Tyler’s story isn’t a fling. There are facets to both of their characters, to them as a couple, that even they couldn’t have

Beautiful Match by Christy Pastore is a friends to lovers, emotional romance with a depth that you don’t really expect at first.

If you’re into the sweeter side of romance in small-towns with light angst and drama and slow-burning goodness, this is the book for you!

Right from the very first few pages, you’re taken by what’s happening and you are left wondering exactly where Pastore will take you next.

Sudden and Searing!
Beautiful March is a fun and sexy, slowburn romance. Haven and Tyler don't meet under the best circumstances, yet they feel at ease with one another almost instantly. It is that ease and comfort that fuels the heat between them. The sexual tension is intoxicating, but it is their passion for life that truly bonds them. Their relationship is filled with laughter, adoration, and longing. They have some obstacles to overcome, but the journey is more than worth the effort.

I am totally in love with this book!!

This is the first book in the series, but can be read as a standalone. Tyler had a horrific childhood, but grew up to be a loving, independent man, with a heart of gold. Haven was bullied all her life, but grew up independent, strong and driven. They had two things in common, they were adopted and they longed to be loved. Their story had me hooked from the first moment they met. I have all the feels. I highly recommend you read this book, get your copy today.

This is the first book I’ve read by Christy Pastore and I’m really glad I gave this book a try. When I found out the setting for most of this book was Mayfield, KY, I knew I had to read it. I wasn’t disappointed. I loved Tyler and Haven’s story. I can’t wait to read the future books that will be set in Kentucky. I bet you will fall in love with some these characters too and want to read more about them. If you enjoy a slow burn romance set in a small town, you will love this book.

There are second chance romances and then there are there’s Beautiful March!
Smart sharp and edgy writing. The characters were so well developed and so multi layers I read this beautiful in 1-sweep!
Passionate, charming and heartfelt, there’s a little twist in the story to give it some edgy bite. Sorta like a spicy margarita!
Some drama, some passion, stir in some good old fashion small town gossip, and sprinkle some dirty deeds...
You get a delicious fun read!
4.5 stars!

Honestly, I don't have words to describe this one. Just wow. The prologue alone was enough to make me want to cry.
This is a beautifully written and emotional book. I was instantly attached to Tyler and Haven. They share stories of adoption, family and finding the right person. Tyler is not the typical bossy alpha but the more quiet, smart secretive guy with a generous heart that you want to know. His desire to have Haven and still take it slow is admirable, but when they start, it's a big, hot

Can I just take a minute to savor this story? Small town romances tend to be my jive within contemporary romances (which admittedly aren't necessarily my thing). The nostalgia, the unique characters, the close relationships. I will pick a small town story of just about any kind any day.

I felt, feel, a little conflicted on my thoughts with this book. For me, there are positive and not so positive within the telling of this story, but obviously the positive outweighed the not so positive.

Beautiful March has a gripping, ripped-from-the-headlines prologue, and I couldn't wait to find out how life turns out for the pair of rescued siblings. The rest of the book did not disappoint.

They meet under the oddest of circumstances -- his friend dumps her in Tyler's restaurant, when both Tyler and Haven were sure a proposal was about to happen.

Wonderful Small Town Romance!

This was a wonderful small town romance with Haven just having been dumped by her douche boyfriend in a setting that looked more like a proposal was coming. As Haven sits back licking her wounds, along comes Tyler who is the restaurant’s owner. He feels bad for how his friend dumped Haven, and to be honest, he is drawn to her. He sits with her while she vents from her experience.

A small town romance full of swoon worthy scenes....

This book! I didn’t know I would love it so much. I wasn’t sure what to expect, it was so much more than I could have imagined. That prologue wrecked me, I couldn’t imagine what kind of story I was in for, then boom! It was everything I never knew I wanted in a story.

Beautiful March by Christy Pastore is an emotional powerhouse that is set in the south and has that southern charm, along with the feels and heat that Ms Pastore is known for. This is Haven and Tyler's story.
We are introduced to Haven just as her world is flipped upside down. Right about the same time, fate introduces us to Tyler. Haven has come to town for one reason and ends up meeting Tyler and finds out Tyler is tied to her reason for being in town. There are sparks between them. Huge chemis

This is the first story I have read by author Christy Pastore and certainly won’t be the last.

Beautiful March is a charming story filled with every emotion as well as intense heat and passion. The story was wonderfully written, and the words flowed effortlessly, making it easy for me to get lost within the pages and feel as though I was a character (one can only wish ).

What a great small town romance! This book gave me all of the feels. The prologue ripped my heart out from the get go and I knew that this story would have all of the feels.

Haven and Tyler are both running from their pasts, yet they end up where they started. Haven left her small town behind after school was over, running from the gossip and small town lies that plagues her. Tyler didn't want anyone to know who he was and hid in plain sight. He was finally able to open up with someone about his

You had me at the prologue...

I absolutely loved Christy Pastore's latest book Beautiful March. Set in a fictional town on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, Tyler and Haven meet after she is dumped by her client/boyfriend. Their attraction to each other is instant, but their connection is much deeper than that.

I don't want to give too much away that could be spoilery, but I enjoyed their story immensely. Its a slow burn, but when they finally give in...OH MY GOSH! The book has everything you can want
