Melina Morales is a good girl.
A hardworking, ambitious, follows-all-the-rules girl. Maybe that’s why her coworkers call her the ice queen. She might care if it weren’t for the looming pile of debt and her family’s dependence on her. But with her dream job on the line, she’s determined to succeed, no matter the sacrifice.

There’s just one tiny, six-foot-something problem.

Holiday Springs was a place built for escape. It was an enchanted wonderland where you could unwind, have fun, and forget your troubles. Where people could meet, make friends, and fall in love. It was a romantic paradise.

Love on the Rocks is the perfect holiday novella. I loved Melina and Zane!

Melina's life is rough right now. She works hard and helps take care of her family. It doesn't leave much room for fun. Then enters Zane Wilder. Zane is a lot of fun. He and Melina

I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this book, and I really enjoyed it. Melina and Zane are well-drawn characters with great chemistry, and the secondary characters are wonderful, especially Melina and her family. It's a sweet, sexy, touching story. And the cover is gorgeous! ...more

This book is part of the Holiday Springs Resort and is a great read and an awesome addition to this series. This is a real opposites attract romance and they are both different. This is a new to me author and I will defiantly look out for more of her work kn the future. I am really enjoying this series and I cant wait to read the next book at the Holiday Springs Resort.

Melina is a person that is very independent and a very hard-working woman and she knows what she wants and how to get it, she

*I received this copy in exchange for an honest opinion*

I really enjoyed reading this book. I was one of the lucky ones who received the advanced reading copy, so I could share my opinion later on the day the book was released.
For starters, I loved the way the author writes. In a clean and simple way, so that the readers have a pleasant and fun reading, without having to think much about everything that happens. In fact, this story is just about a young woman who bears the burden of the responsi

Holy hotness! I’ve never read from this author but I’m already so in love with this series and this resort that I knew this book wouldn’t be any different!!

I think I’m more in love with Melina and her family than I am with Zane but I think it’s a close call! So many things remind me of my own family and I loved that aspect so much!!! Olivia was so much fun and made me laugh! I am very much curious about Nate and his story but can hopefully wait until someone does his story. Zane surprised me sev

Kim Bailey's Love on the Rocks: A Holiday Springs Resort Novel is a very sweet, steamy and romantic book.

But he is the nephew of the owner of the resort where they both work - one that has a no fraternization policy. And her family life is going haywire. And she's up for a promotion for her dream job.

This was another great addition to the Holiday Springs Resort series. I enjoyed Melina Morales and Zane Wilder’s story and was invested in the story that Kim Bailey, who is a new author to me, wove from the first to the last chapter. This is my favourite book in the series so far.

There isn’t anything that Melina wouldn’t do for her family and that is one of the reasons why this promotion at work is so important. She has focused all her attention on her career and doesn’t have the time or energy for a relationship especially with a sexy bartender who is only looking for a fun fling.

Zane is a good employee, a loyal friend and has a way with the ladies. He comes across as a flirt without a care in the world but when Melina needs his help she is about to find out that appear

Love on the Rocks is a fun, sweet, sexy story with a great storyline and awesome characters! Zane and Melina have hot, amazing chemistry. I absolutely loved these two! There is so much more to Zane than meets the eye and I loved seeing that caring and heartfelt side to him. Melina is so strong and determined to keep her family going. Her hard work and dedication to them is admirable. These two balance each other out perfectly. My only wish was we got a little more about their story at the end. I ...more

I just adored this sweet, feel-good romance from start to finish. Zane proved himself to be a gorgeous hero: attentive, devoted, and attractive. I loved seeing how his relationship with Melina developed and I finished the story with a big smile on my face. A wonderful read!

I am enjoying this series.

This book was Zane (the bartender-he’s been mentioned in previous books) and Melinas book.

Melina is set for a big promotion at The Holiday Springs resort. She can’t do it without a little help though as she hits a snag with the food.

Enter Zane-he thinks Melina is gorgeous and he would love to date her.

This book would not be complete without some snags and I love how everything is wrapped up.

Each book is great and I can’t wait for more!

Melina is a strong independent woman who looks after her sick father and her two younger sisters, whilst working hard at The Holiday Springs Resort. Zane is the nephew of the owner and works at the resort, he is a bit of a playboy but has a strong attraction to Melina, and although she likes him, there is a no fraternising policy between workers, so there is no way she can afford to give him a chance.

What follows is a sweet love story of a man who will do anything for the woman he loves and a w

This was the such a fun romance read right now - as the days are getting shorter and the the weather is getting cooler. Melina works in guest services at Holiday Springs Resort in a mountain town in Pennsylvania.

(Living in PA all of my life, I could picture that small, mountain town, the ski resort at the heart of it so clearly. The foliage turning beautiful colors this time of year and the cold biting winters that bring lots and lots of snow.)

Love on the Rocks was a sweet romance that reminded me a lot of a Hallmark movie. It would make a lovely holiday read while curled up by a fireplace or with a blanket and hot chocolate.

Zane has a reputation for being a playboy, always a partier but never committed. However, as Melina gets to know him, so did I. He truly has a heart of gold. The interactions with his elderly neighbor were my favorite parts of the book.

Melina is driven and focused. She has to be, bless her, because she’s carrying

Love on the Rocks

A really good story to read about Melina & Zane. The characters are so opposite but yet, the agreement of one date will melt your heart on how these two really do connect with each other. Zane is such a wonderful guy in always saying the right things to her, giving her the confidence & strength to carry on, no matter how difficult things look at the moment. He is her rock. The strength & love he pours to her soul is immense. She may not want his help but he does manage to break

Kim Bailey is a new to me author, and I'm glad that I finally met her with Love on the Rocks. It's the story of good girl Melina, who carries the weight of the world on her shoulders and never complains about it. She just keeps working hard to get her family out of debt & taking care of her younger sisters, so she's not about to take any chances at losing her dream job.

My Thoughts…

Attraction in the workplace can often lead to trouble. That is exactly what Melina was worried about while fighting her attraction to Zane Wilder. Melina needs this job and is in line for a promotion. She is not willing to risk it all just for a man. But how can she possibly stay away from the one man who makes her heart beat faster?

Zane, oh man. He is all man, but his sweet side wins me over. He does not just want to have one night with Melina, he wants it all. He wants a relationsh

Love on the Rocks is the first book from the Holiday Springs series that I have read. It is also the first book from this author that I have had the chance to enjoy. I loved reading and following Zane and Melina's sweet romance of a hardworking woman and the playboy with a heart of gold. I look forward to reading more from this author as well from this series. ~Dawn

This was a cute fast read. Melina and Zane both work together and the attraction between the two has been building for over a year.

Y'all this book straight up warmed my heart, it was sweet and was just as refreshing as that first sip of hot chocolate! I have not read the other books in the series, but was pleasantly surprised with Love on the Rocks with the overall delivery of the book.

Melina and Zane are as opposite as opposites can be with one dubbed the "ice queen" and the other as a "player". Can these two see past those and become something special to each other- read and see! :)

First I was soo happy to read this as it has been awhile since I have read any of this authors books. I have missed that but life happens. Zane and Melina were amazing and their story of how they were trying to navigate a world of doing what you think you are expected or taking a chance.

I love stories that the characters take that leap of faith and see that not all things are what they seem. It also shows me that we all need to do things for ourselves sometimes and not what is expected of us. T

Love on the Rocks by Kim Bailey is a wonderful romance novel. It's the story of two co-workers who shared a kiss at a party, but still have an attraction to one another.

The young woman is the oldest of 3 daughters, who is the sole income provider for her family, due to her mother's death and her father's recent stroke.

The young man is known as a good looking "party boy", who in truth is a very lonely person.

Melina and Zane have a sweet romance that moves along briskly, with a few hiccups (Zane’s commitment issues, Melina’s financial and family stresses; a coworker who might be sabotaging Melina, and a no-fraternizing policy). Nevertheless, they are drawn to each other and work through the obstacles. I’m not usually a fan of romance books where the characters “do the deed” so quickly. In this case, the author actually spent time developing both of the characters’ reasons for their actions. Overall, ...more
