Meant To Be Yours

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

Synopsis (from Amazon):  In Happily Inc, love means never having to say “I do”…

Wedding coordinator Renee Grothen isn’t meant for marriage. Those who can, do. Those who can’t, plan. But she never could have planned on gorgeous, talented thriller writer Jasper Dembenski proposing—a fling, that is. Fun without a future. And the attraction between them is too strong for Renee to resist. Now she can have her no-wedding cake…and eat it, too.

After years in the military, Jasper is convinced he’s too damaged for relationships. So a flirtation—and more—with fiery, determined Renee is way too good to pass up…until his flame becomes his muse.

Renee is an expert at averting every crisis. But is she finally ready to leap into the one thing that can never be controlled: love?

One (or more) Sentence Summary: Really enjoyed it! Quick read with great characters and great storyline! I really liked Jasper and his friends.  Renee, who works at the local wedding planner business believes in love for everyone but her.  However, Jasper is suffering from PTSD from his deployment days and believes he is unlovable and not capable of loving.  Sparks fly (happy and mad) when Jasper and Renee meet.  There are a few steamy scenes too!  I also really like Renee's friends, which I am assuming we can read about their stories in the other books in the Happily Inc series.  Happily Inc = Happy Ending = Happy Reader!

There was also a novella included at the end of Meant To Be Yours, A Very Merry Princess. Loved it it too!

Would I Read Other Books by the Author:  Absolutely - I MUST get my hands on the rest of the Happily Inc series for sure!  There are 4 books before Meant To Be Yours and a 6th one! 
So many of her books I want to read. Sisters By Choice (Blackberry Island book 4 - I need to get 1- 3) is on my kindle!  I have read The Summer of Sunshine and Margot.   I would like to read the Mischief Bay series too. Oh heck, I just want to read all her books.
