‘His eyes rake down my long coat draped to the top of my boots. It’s functional but it keeps me warm.
“Friday then,” I say, unable to fight the grin curling my lips. Nathan shakes his head with a soft chuckle.
“Witch or not Naomi Winters, you’ve put a spell on me, and I don’t want it broken.”’
Author LB Dunbar’s writing for “Love in Due Time” is an exquisite and elaborate art form, ...more
ARC provided by the publisher & Social Butterfly PR , Thanks for giving me the opportunity to read the book.
" That's Why I love Books . Books are stable and steadfast. Reliable. Books are comfort from heartache and hope from despair . Maybe Julianne Should put that on one of her signs . I sigh . What will I do Without My Books ? "

Naomi's character was interesting to say the least...very 'out there' in a good way I guess and of course we get Nathan who's super sweet and very manly at the same time. They had a quick one night stand 18 ...more
I received this book at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
This had everything that I love in a contemporary romance.
An interesting plot full of mysteries that you have to piece together while the story moves along. Set in a LIBRARY. A quirky heroine that is not afraid to be different. And while she is smart and self-fulfilled she still has a lot of insecurities to deal with. A sweet, vulnerable, and yet incredibly badass hero, full of tattoos and some delightful silver scruff.
We follow the story of Naomi Winters, a 39-year-o ...more
This second chance romance is beautiful.
Naomi and Nathan once met each other in a bar and after a passionate night, some broken promises and a devastating accident Naomi now lives alone in a house near the woods. The librarian is a Wiccan and thus the talk of town. Nathan once was a prospect for a MC and is now a father of two girls. 18 years after their unforgettable night they meet again. A sign?!
The protagonists are both ...more
Love in Due Time is a wonderfully sweet, sexy and moving second chance story about Naomi Winters, the quirky almost forty-ish librarian “who practices self-love in hopes of reviving her inner goddess” and has always kept a piece of her heart set aside for Nathan Ryder, the man-boy who disappeared without a trace eighte ...more
Yep, Naomi and Nathan were good together. She's effectively shut down and tried to live under the radar after a series of events shattered her sense of self as a young woman. He's...well, Nathan had his reasons for leaving like he did and he's been dealing with the fallout from that ever since. He might be fumbling along i ...more
I stayed up late last night finishing this one. Love in Due Time is a great second chance romance featuring Naomi, a local librarian in Green Valley, and Nathan, a sexy biker and dad. I loved that this book featured two characters in their late 30's instead of your typical 20's/early 30's. I absolutely adored both Naomi and Nathan and loved watching their relationship grow. I also really liked learning about Naomi's Wiccan religion and found ...more
As with all of the other Smartypants Romance books it was ...more
The laughter and banter balanced with the heat and intensity in a perfect blend.
Naomi and Nathan started something 18yrs ago but life got in the way. Fast forward, the results of that interruption threaten their second chance that starts with a book.
Dunbar never disappoints. Well, I was bummed when the book was over.
"Miss Naomi, why aren't you married?"
Oh my. "Well, Professor Snape could never get over Lily."
YOU GUYS THIS BOOK, I LOVED IT It's heartwarming, funny, hot, sexy, everything you are looking for in a contemporary romance book is here. Love in due time is a book about second chances, about universe's messeges, about forgiveness, family and love.
I loved the main characters so bad. Naomi is a close-to forty yo woman and works as a librarian in the town library. When she was 21 something horrible ...more
This book can definitely be read as a standalone but I urge Penny Reid fans who are familiar with Green Valley and its inhabitants to read this as soon as you can get your mitts on it. The revelations will BLOW. ...more
Love in Due Time is about second chances, hard choices and well living in a place where being different carries a lot of baggage. When Naomi and Nathan first met they ...more
Naomi and Nathan had me planted in my cozy reading chair until I finished this entire thing in nearly one sitting!
Naomi was a wonderful heroine. She served as a necessary reminder for us to not put people into boxes labeled with all our own assumptions. Just because someone sees the world a little differently, dresses specifically, or holds beliefs that you don’t, doesn’t mean th ...more
From the very beginning of Love in Due Time Naomi captured me. Her innocence and sweetness were endearing, but when combined with her strength and determination to be true to herself, that is when she showed how amazing she really was! And then when she allowed her slightly naughty side to show, she became a true goddess and put a smile on my face.
Nathan knew Naomi wa ...more
Love in due time was my fourth book of the Smartypants romance and the one I had the hardest time (so far) to get into. Probably because I have not been in the right mood, because after I put it down and restarted a few days later, I could not wait to finish this book. It was freaking amazeballs and that means something, because normally I don’t really care for the mature couples in romance, but this one was just adorable. I loved the mood the book ...more

Let me say that I love L.B. Dunbar. I mean, really really, love this author. She is one of my go-to authors. I recommend her every chance I get when a reader asks for the genre she writes. I love her Facebook fan page. She is great on interacting with ‘us fans’ and one day I hope to meet her. ...more
As a reader you have to dig a library setting.
I don't get to the library like I did when I was younger and also i read mostly digital books. But I think we can all agree a library can be a magical place for young and old. After all books are portals to ...more
Naomi works at the Green Valley Library, keeps to herself, lives her life like some people wouldn’t understand but there is just a sadness that keeps her forgetting who she was so many years ago. Can seeing Nathan again after so many years bring it all back to the forefro ...more

L.B. Dunbar has been accused of having an over-active imagination. To her benefit, this imagination has created over twenty novels, including #sexysilverfoxes rom-com for the over 40; a small-town world (Sensations Collection), rock star mayhem (Legendary Rock Star series), MMA chaos (Paradise Stories), and a ...more
