4.5 cranky stars


This book jumps right into the storyline, but it is fine read as a stand alone book. Siobhan if single living in the family home in Snug Harbour, her sister tries to sell it from under her, but she soon puts a stop to that as her parents said she could live in the house for 7 years after their death. She had over 6 years to go and tells her sister such.


Siobhan's slightly eccentric grandmother rings her from the airport to say she has arrived to keep her company. Not that Siobhan

Thea, Siobhan’s grandmother, is a riot! I truly enjoyed the comedic aspect to this story and her thoughts, past and present. The author did a fabulous job writing this book. I found it to be fast-paced and it definitely held my interest. There was some depth to it, too, with various issues the different characters had to deal with. They all had their flaws, none of them perfect, and yet they were likeable and realistic. I really liked that the outcomes of the relationships weren’t completely obv ...more

This two-in-one romance follows Siobhan and her grandmother as they face real-life issues and ponder their pasts and their futures. Siobhan may be young however she is not without baggage, and her story provides an informative glimpse into the long-term impact of eating disorders - emotional and physical - even years after recovery. She struggles to see herself in a positive light, as someone that a hot guy would want to be with. I enjoyed reading about her and Jimmy and the dynamic between them ...more

This was such an awesome read that I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend! This is the first book I have read of Gina Ardito's and can be read as a stand alone. The story and characters are amazing and pulled me in form the beginning with plenty of laughter and love. I loved the grandmother she made the book that much more fun to read. The story is fast paced reading, realistic and the characters had their flaws but were still likable. All in all the story kept my interest and was very well w ...more

Siobhan survived bulimia, but she may not make it with a meddling grandmother, a selfish sister who is trying to force her to sell their parents’ house where she’s living, a struggling photography business, and grumpy high school crush that just moved back in across the street. Her grandmother is a riot and shows that you are never too old for romance. At first I thought Justin was a better potential boyfriend for Siobhan because he much nicer and volunteered with the church. But Jimmy has depth ...more

This is the 4th book I've read written by Gina Ardito; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

Thea is a total hoot! She doesn't care what anyone says or thinks about her. Siobhan has hit a rough patch in her life and business. And just to top is all off, her grandmother (Thea) says goodbye to her life in a Florida retirement community, and moves back in with Siobhan. Her high school crush has moved back into his parents' house across the street, and the fireworks begin. Thea wants Siobhan to have the kind of happiness that she had with her husband, and is convinced that Jimmy is the one ...more

I really enjoyed this story. The characters were real and flawed. They were relatable. Siobhan is struggling with her business and with her life in general. She is surprised when her Grandmother moves back home and in with her. Althea is a bit eccentric but felt Siobhan needed her. Althea isn't the only one who has moved home recently. Jimmy and Justin Vais both have recently moved back to Snug Harbor too. I enjoyed both Althea's story of the past and her current romance. I like Siobhan who prov ...more

This is the first book that I have read by Gina but definitely not the last. This book can be read as a standalone. The characters are really great and keep you on your toes but there are plenty of laughter but a real love story. I definitely recommend you read this book as it is so well written and worth reading. Looking forward to reading more of Gina's book.

Oh my gosh! I am never disappointed reading this author. Grandma Thea and Siobhan have become like family. I only hope when I reach Thea's age, I have her spunk. Love for family trumps anything and everything in this wonderful novel. Romance reveals itself in Thea's memories and in Siobhan's past and present. Crisp storytelling and believable characters will make you want to read this one several times. ...more

I’m new to this author and I’m sold! I adored Thea’s character, eccentric, clever, and always motivated by her deep love for others. I appreciate the characters in this book having flaws and problems that are relatable and the strength to address them in realistic ways. I enjoyed the storyline having depth and still having humorous moments. Wonderful read!

This story was not a disappointment! Funny and entertaining characters, a great story line that engages the readers attention and when you finish the story, you'll want to read it again and again and again. Books like this are the best and you may find yourself laughing out loud.

Two romances. Two different generations. Grandmother and granddaughter are living together and challenging one another. Amusing and heart warming. Thanks to the author for providing a copy per my request for a voluntary review.

This is the first book I've read by this author. I'm really liking her writing style. I can tell you she has gained a new reader. This book takes you on the journey of Siobhan and her grandma. It's really like a two for one deal because you get two romance stories going on. It's easy to follow between the back and forth. Siobhan is struggling a little and her grandma returns at the right time to be some meddling help. There is a good amount of humor in this book, but it also has plenty of feels ...more

Loved the book, the story was well written and the characters were intriguing. Once I started I could not get enough, from the start till the end I was engrossed I was even on the edge of my seat with twists and turns, lust and passion, strength. The story of love of sensation. Do yourself a favor and buy the book you want be disappointed.

The book opened with Siobhan but most of the romance revolved around her grandmother and her budding yet never requited passion, until now. It's on the lighter scale on my romance novel reading spectrum - nice enough to spend time with though would have loved more development for Siobhan's romance. Really had hoped it would worked out with the hero's younger brother but it wasn't meant to be :"D.
Was cheering hard for Siobhan's successful turn of things, really feel for her in that aspect.
