A Romantic Dreamer
Letty Gonzalez is a true romantic. She’s spent her life waiting for flowers, poetry, the grand gesture that will finally sweep her off her feet—without any luck. After her latest dating fiasco, she’s ready to give up on the idea of Prince Charming—but not on down and dirty fantasies about her new
boss—gorgeous, out-of-her-league Max Delgado.

The Good
Latinx hero and heroine. It was the first thing I noticed when reading the blurb, and I was completely sold, because while I’ve been compiling my Latinx Romance Database, it’s not as common to see Latinx heroes AND heroines, usually one or the other. The representation is believable and culturally positive, and definitely my favorite part of the story. Their families are dysfunctional, but the best scenes are when Letty or Max are interacting with their families.

Good chemistry. I enjoyed
Full disclosure. It was the cover that caught my eye ;)
And I lurve me some matchmaking olds...I see you Lola!!
Plus? I totally dig love-at-first-sight. If it can happen to me and hubs, insta-love is really people!!
Now let's talk (lovely) Letty and (the beard is strong) Max...

Since this was the first time I have ever read anything from this new-to-me author, I have to say it took me a bit to get into the flow of her characters and how she tells a story.

It's quirky and charming, for sure. But a lo

I love a good romance novel with a plus-size heroine. Most importantly, I love that this heroine, Letty, is not trying to lose weight to get the sexy, bearded guy. The guy, Max, is completely infatuated with her the minute she walks into his art studio, the fullness and curviness of her body enticing and desirable. The steaminess of this novel is up there, I'd say a 4.5 on a 1-5 scale. The romance is immersed in the overall story of the characters and their families, so the reader sees lots of c ...more

Grumpy hero? Plus-size heroine? Tropetastic! This is the fifth book in the series, but I think it could be read as a standalone, as I’d only read the previous book (about Max’s sister) and I didn’t feel lost, though what I suspect are several other previous couples make appearances.

After Letty’s breakup with her ex-boyfriend left her blacklisted from the art world, landing a job as an assistant to a talented sculptor preparing for a major exhibition seems like a godsend. What Letty isn’t prepare

The first words Letta heard was “ you can leave your clothes on the chair”. It was the last thing she expected to hear on the first day of a new job. When Letty had been forcefully thrust into starting her own business she had no idea nudity would be involved. This was more her sister Elena= the swimsuit model- area of expertise. She double checked everything on her first client had sent her via email She was told to take her clothes off and get on the platform. She had spent a lot of time aroun ...more

** I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

This is book five of the One Night in South Beach series. I had not read any of the previous stories before picking this up so I am not in a position to compare it to the previous instalments in the series.

Ok, full disclosure. This is going to be more of a rant than a review as this story brought up some really stron

This book surprised me in more ways than one, both positive and negative. I have mixed feelings about it and putting together this review has helped a lot.

Starting with the easy part, “Night and Day” is the fifth book in the series but can easily be read as a stand-alone. As far as I’ve understood, there are glimpses of stories from previous novels, and one very sweet grandmother that ties everything together. Letty meets Max when she needed to stay away from men the most. After an unsuccessful

Letty is desperate for a job after being fired from her last one. And the fact that she had been sleeping with her boss means there is no way she will get a recommendation and she has to make her way through the Miami art scene on her own. When she gets an email with a job offer to work for rising artist Max, she is skeptical, but she needs the work so she takes it. But she isn’t prepared for the sizzling chemistry between them. She almost refuses the job on the spot when she finds out it was Ma ...more
Content warning for discussion of fat-shaming.

A grumpy, bearded sculptor meets his match when his meddling grandmother hires a professional organizer to help sort out his studio.

I loved the way Max helped how Lettie how attractive he found her, and I totally bought their sexual chemistry. I also adored the secondary characters but felt Max and Lettie didn't have enough time together on page to make me believe they were truly in love, not just wanting to bang all the time.

Although this is #5 in a series, it’s the third book of Andie J. Christopher’s that I’ve read. While I loved Break of Day, I was kind of ambivalent about Before Daylight. Unfortunately, I was also kind of indifferent about Night and Day.

It’s not a bad book, that’s for sure. Max and Letty seem to complement each other very well. While they have an instant attraction, it’s not instalove, which I appreciated. And even aside from that, they were able to build each other up and help each other overco

"I'm not going to kiss you, but you can kiss me... You can do whatever you want with me." Max's words are like a brick to Letty's gut! She is trying to resist mixing work with pleasure, been there, done that, got the tshirt - but Max is making it very difficult to stick to this rule!

Max is a gorgeous up & coming sculptor. Letty has been hired by his grandmother to organize his workspace. Together, they work through their own insecurities. His, believing he is too much like his abusive father, wh

Lola is at it again, playing meddlesome matchmaker for grand kids. She truly is a trip lol. This time she pushes Letty in the path of her grandson and hopes for sparks to fly and they do.

Both Letty and Max have some emotional baggage to deal with because of their parents. For Letty, it's dealing with body issues because of her mother harping on her weight and for Max it's him being afraid he'll be like is dad because of his temper. Letty and Max really help each other deal with their insecuritie

Don’t touch me I’m soft (full review to come)
Andie J. Christopher's Night and Day  was so refreshing I thought I was bathing in the beach after a heatwave. Set in Miami, the story follows our brooding artist hero, Max Delgado, and the optimistic, capable heroine, Letty Gonzalez.

Letty Gonzalez has been hired to organize Max Delgado's workspace, only to find out that Max didn't really contact her, but rather his meddling matchmaker Abuela. The confusion sets forth a series of misundersta

I was asked by the author for an honest review.

This is the first book I've read by Andie Christopher as well as the first book I've read in the One Night in South Beach series. There were characters and reference to events from easier books, but I didn't have any problem following the story line even though I started 5 books into the series.

I liked the characters and the writing style. I appreciate that the reader is able to see the insecurities from both sides of the relationship (one set phys

A light and sexy addition to this series - Max will definitely be catnip for readers who love their grumpy, taciturn heroes. Letty is a lovely, complicated person who felt very real. I loved the sisterhood in this book (both familial and found-familial). And Max's abuela is a delight.

I was given an Advance Reader's Copy in exchange for an honest review.

This was another really good installment in the series! There was a lot of depth to it, but sometimes the choices the characters made jumped steps in what would seem to be a logical decision-making process. But the writing was great, the characters were great, the tortured Delgados are fantastic. Everything about this was enjoyable to read!

This is the first book I read by Andie J Christopher, and I loved it!!! I will definitely be going back to read from the beginning of the series. Broken hero, who loves the heroine, but thinks he isn't good enough for her. Hot sex. There's only one bed! A matchmaking Lola. Properly angsty (I love angst with my romance). Just filled with all the goodness.

Max and Letty compliment each other really well. Is size 14 really considered plus size? What a strange world we live in...

Thank you NetGalley and Kensington Press for the ARC!

Max and Lettie had good chemistry, crazy families, and a little bit of one-note personalities. Overall, I enjoyed the book, and the crazy matchmaking. This was a fun and breezy read.
i kind of wish this focused more on the heroine not feeling bad about her body but i was hit with a lot of fatphobic comments from her point of view that were directed to her and i just felt so :(

This is the 5th book in this series, and each one has been enjoyable in it's own way. Here we have a broody artist hero, and a smart, bubbly, curvy heroine. I enjoyed it, and I wanted to love it, but something just didn't quite click for me. 3.5 Stars.

Letty Gonzalez is a romantic, but she grew up as the "fat sister" in her family, so she never really held out much hope of a great romance happening to her. But, I have to assume everyone would feel like the fat sister if their only sister turned o
