Really enjoyed!

I am a sucker for a single dad romance. This is definitely a slow burn enemies to lovers story that was funny and sweet with a side of small town gossip and baby momma drama. I really enjoyed.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving an honest review. As I’ve said before, I always give honest reviews whether people appreciate them or not.

I read and reviewed Sugar Rush which is Book Two of the Love in New Bedford series. I said at the end of the review that I couldn’t wait for Henry’s story. Well, this is it! Hopefully you all have read that book, so you are aware that at the end Henry had just purchased a new house. This story begins with Astri

This is the first book Iv'e read by Deliliah Peters. It's a story taking place in a small town where the two main characters have a slight tenuous history together. He's a local policeman who a few years back arrested Astrid for having marijuana in her car, the whole town seeing and now her feelings and reputations are in tatters. Henry's recently divorced with two children and having just bought a house needing fixing needs Astrid to help him. She gave up being a Doctor after their incident and ...more

I fell in love with Delilah Peters’ writing style in Sugar Crush, and nothing has changed. While Astrid is not as adorable as Ava, her interactions with Henry/Hank (depending on her mood) are equally engaging. There are a few encounters with Ava and Leo again – but they don’t rely on your having read Sugar Crush; this is a great standalone. There are some hints about the reason for Astrid’s arrest, and it’s good to be able to guess and be right about it. Astrid’s fear of not being able to take o ...more

I fell in love with Delilah Peters after reading Sugar Rush, Book 2 in the Love in New Bedford Series. In that book we meet Henry, Ava’s older brother and you could just tell that his story would be an interesting one. Henry is a single dad with two great kids trying desperately to do what’s best for them. After having to move in to his sister’s tiny house, Hank buys a DIY nightmare and is forced to hire a carpenter in the form of Astrid. Astrid took over her father’s carpentry business and buil ...more

Henry arrested Astrid years ago, and destroyed her shot at medical school. She's followed her father's footsteps, doing home renovations. Henry's wife took off, leaving him with their two children, living with his sister. He buys a cool old farmhouse with great bones, but it's otherwise a complete disaster. Against her better judgment, Astrid agrees to renovate it for him. Somewhere along the way, she forgets that she hates him. I loved this book, at least as much as Sugar Rush, and maybe a litt ...more

Book three in the Love in New Bedford series a well written story that held my interest throughout. Astrid Martin and Henry Webster have a rocky history starting when they where younger. I like reading how these two get a second chance. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Delilah Peters is a sucker for love. After years of crafting heavy, moody stories, she embraced her inner optimist--and her unabashed affection for tropes--and danced into contemporary romance.

Raised in a small, frigid town in Upstate New York, she now inhabits a small, rural town in the steamy South. There, she lives in the moment with her hero, three wild children, four cats, unfinished knittin
