Jake Ryan fights bad guys, jumps out of airplanes, and escapes disasters...on film. But when a scandal engulfs his career, he takes cover in his homet

He’d never expected to find someone like her anywhere, much less during his exile in Bliss Cove. God knew he hadn’t imagined that smart girl Callie from high school would come back into his life with the power of an earthquake and shake up his very foundation, in the best possible way.

”AND I LOVE HER” brings us back to the beautiful Northern California coastal town of Bliss Cove. This is the eldest Prescott sister’s turn at romance and it’s

So happy to revisit Nina Lindsey's enchanting sea-side town of Bliss Cove for the second contemporary romance in this series ~ And I Love Her. This trilogy, whose installments can be read as stand-alone novels, follows the lives and loves of the Prescott sisters Aria, Cassie, and Rory. Here it's the prim and proper college professor Calista's chance to find true love. Callie is a no-nonsense type of woman who has no time for frivolousness and distractions like romance. But her scheduled life

4.5 stars. Nina’s story telling is amazing in this sweet romance set in Bliss Cove!! Loved the opposites attract angle! Jake was swoon worthy, sweet, sexy, and a movie star to boot! Callie was very put together, smart, career driven, pretty, and a bit of a control freak-maybe more than a bit ;). They were perfect together! I loved the side story with her Mom! I can’t wait to dive into the next one!

I liked Callie and Jake's story even more than the first book in the series (which was great). There was just something really special about watching them transition not just romantically, but really watching them grow in their personal lives. Callie especially.

From the first book and the start of this one, Callie was just so rigid, controlled, and couldn't wrap her mind around anyone else's ideas of living except her own. But loosening up with Jake and seeing the colors of life profoundly chan

Nina Lindsey's Bliss Cove series gets even better with book two! Callie and Jake were wonderful characters.

To be honest, I was not a big fan of Callie in the first book. I was quickly reminded that there's often more to someone then you see at first glance. Callie is rigid, follows a schedule, and is big into routine. However, I really liked her the more I read. She loves her family and misses her dad so much. It was sweet to see how she opened up the more time she spent with Jake.

Callie is content with her life in Bliss Cove as she has her career as a professor and is very close to her family and would do anything for them. When Jake returns to town it brings up all the feelings she had for him when they were teenagers, but she never expected her calm and orderly life to change.

Jake is now a Hollywood star however he hasn’t let the fame change him. Needing a break from the media frenzy his life has become he heads to his hometown to reassess his life what he wants for hi
This was a good read. Callie is a woman that tries to keep her life tidy. She is always trying to keep it perfect. Then Jake shows up and changes everything for her. They have some complications but in the end they get their happy ending.

This is the second book I've lapped up in the Bliss Cove series and although the reading order is mentioned in the blurbs, I’m not reading in sequence since they can are all be enjoyed as standalones. Getting to know how the Prescott family ticks is a joy. The sisters’ quirky ways, the men who might or might not steal their hearts and their adorable mum who I fell head over heels for simply deserves all the kudos. As my wish is for you to experience the Bliss Cove feel, I’m going to try

I'm loving these Prescott sisters and with And I Love Her, Nina Lindsey ups her game and gives us one helluva great love story. This time around it's oldest sister Callie's turn as she finds herself face to face with a memory from high school, all grown up in the form of one Jake Ryan, Hollywood's popular action hero. They shouldn't have chemistry since the somewhat staid Callie could never fit in Jake's world or be on his wildly muscular arms. But once again the magic that is Bliss Cove removes ...more

Bliss Cove and the Prescott sisters don't stand a chance when author NIna Lindsay gets a hold of them!!! Ms Lindsay simply knows how to describe, write, tell, express, and share that special, unique "insta-attraction" that many of us may have experienced but could never verbalize to someone else!! The emotions that Classics Professor Callista (Callie) Prescott and major motion picture heart-throb Jake Ryan feel for each other upon meeting one another are very clearly illustrated in this awesomel ...more

"And I Love Her",the 2nd book in the Bliss Cove series, centers on Callie Prescott. She is a college professor, very disciplined, rigid and very much a loner. She accidentally runs into Jake Ryan, who is a Hollywood action star. He is hiding out in Bliss Cove, his hometown, in disguise to avoid being recognized by anyone. Unbeknownst to Callie, he is the same Jake she had a crush on in high school.

A slow stroll in small town Bliss Cove:
Callie is an uptight overachieving classics professor; Jake is a Hollywood heartthrob. Despite being polar opposites, their mutual attraction is strong and it is fun seeing them move towards something meaningful and long lasting. Of course there are obstacles along the way; secrets are revealed and hurts are endured.
Although a bit slow at times, this is still an engaging and satisfying read. I loved the sweet, small town romance and it was lovely being bac

This is the second book in the series and I enjoyed it as much as the first. I loved Callie and Jake. It was so beautiful watching Callie find there is more to life then schedules and routine. Jake is so good for her and in turn she's good for him. Jake does a little growing this one as well and realizes what truly matters in this world. This book was a joy to read. Plus Callie's sister Aria pops up every now then with her cat cafe. I always love that. It's a beautiful book and story. I would re ...more

Callie and Jake knew each other at school now Callie is a professor and Jake is a well known actor that has come to Bliss Cove to stay out of the limelight after some bad press. Jake had always thought that Callie was pretty and smart and Callie always thought Jake was hot and she had a crush on him at school.

Who doesn’t love a good romance novel? Well, you’re going to absolutely enjoy And I Love Her. Great storyline; interesting characters; plot twists and turns that might just make you grind your teeth; and a really cool HEA. If I had a negative, it would be that the middle chapters sort of dragged on...but keep reading—the story gets better! (I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book and enjoyed it.)

"And I Love Her" was pure romance and absolutely lovely to read.

Jake a swoon-worthy, reluctant Hollywood star going home. and Callie, a seemingly rigid academic with no time for love, meet and are perfect together. I loved all of the supporting characters, I know the next book in the series will probably feature the third sister, Rory, but I kind of want - need - a book telling Destiny's story.

Overall, another perfect love story.

Solid four stars. I very much enjoyed Callie and Jake's story. Callie's stodginess (albeit a little old for her age) matched perfectly with Jake's relaxed lifestyle. And I loved that they both were able to look inside themselves and not only change but figure out what they really wanted at this time in their lives. Loved how the characters interacted and kept the story going. A much better follow up to the first book. ...more

I love this entire series. But this book is my favorite so far. Callie and Jake are made for each other. You can tell from the very first moments. I love how different they are and how they bring out the best in each other. You will cheer for them through the entire book.

Oh how I love Bliss Cove! I really wish I could visit! I adore Nina and her brilliant words. I loved this couple, Jake and Callie. Opposites do attract for sure! Callie is a bit set in her ways. Jake is a movie star. They have some drama, but not a lot. They do have sparks and heat! I can’t wait for book 3!

This is my first book by this author even though I've seen others and been meaning to pick them up. I am glad I did. This captivated me from the beginning and I loved getting to know Callie and Jake.
