From Runway to Love

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~


Synopsis (from Amazon): From bestselling romantic comedy author Melissa Baldwin comes the final installment in the Love in the City Series! 

Living the dream life as a model in New York City used to be enough for gorgeous Olivia Fulton. Now even the fame isn't enough to bring her out of her funk. A series of events bring Olivia face to face with the regrets of her past. Add in the collapse of her three-year relationship and reconnecting with long-lost friends, and Olivia may finally be able to learn--the hard way of course--that everything she thought was important really isn't.

A surprising love interest begins to teach Olivia about the person she truly wants to be. However, this is not compatible with her current life, and in order to be that person, Olivia may have to give up everything she's worked for. Torn between terror and exhilaration, Olivia must now decide if she's capable of this type of change. Will she even be able to open her heart to love again?


One (or more) Sentence Summary: The 3rd book in Love in the City series didn't let me down.  I have like Olivia from the very beginning and now it is her time to shine (she is so use to being in the spot light)!  I really enjoyed how the story (and love) developed between her and Colin.  Olivia comes face to face with what she wants out of life by reflecting where she has been.  Colin is going through similar reflections and together they find their way.  It isn't an easy journey for Olivia or Colin, but she comes out as a star and he comes out pretty darn well too! 

Of course all three girls are in From Runway to Love. You don't need to read the first two, but they are so good, I recommend you do!

Would I Read Other Books by the Author: I would like to read the Broadway series and Summer of Seasons series next.

All You Need Is Love

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~




Synopsis (from Amazon): From bestselling romantic comedy author Melissa Baldwin comes the second installment in the Love in the City Series! 

CJ Evans has worked hard to overcome many of the devastating challenges that life has thrown at her, and she has come a long way. Despite the aftermath of her broken engagement and the strained relationship with her mother, she has recently mended lost friendships and has become a successful entrepreneur of a business she is truly passionate about. But could all of this progress be lost when her mother presents her with a blindside she never would have expected?

CJ realizes she can no longer avoid her past, and she must finally face the heartbreak, inadequacy, and unresolved events to continue to move forward. This includes embarking on a new career path and opening her heart to a love she's always been hoping for.

CJ's journey is one of growth, trust, and taking risks. And in the end she may realize that to be truly happy--all you need is love.


One (or more) Sentence Summary: I was so happy to get to ready book 2 of the Love in the City series.  CJ was not my favorite of the three characters from the first book, On the Road to Love, but I loved her in All You Need Is Love.  We really get to know CJ and what makes her tic.  All I can say, is goodness....we find out a lot and it is not what I would have ever pieced together.  It is pure craziness.  I don't know how she deals with her mother!!  I also love who she ends up with (no clue here).  

Loved how the three girls are still featured in book 2 and how it is stands on its own too.  All You Need Is Love is a quick and fun read.  

Would I Read Other Books by the Author: Can't wait to read book 3 in the Love in the City series.
