(Hotel Ever After, #1)
Publication date: September 13th 2016
Genres: New Adult, Romance
Bette owns Fairhaven’s only bookstore…but only barely. She’s struggling with bills, but she refuses to sell to the hotel mogul Richard Dickson because he only wants to tear down the beloved store and replace it with a hotel. Can these two find a compromise and save the bookstore?
Liza Penn is the pseudonym of an author living with her family in the piedmont of the Carolinas. She writes the Hotel Ever After books for fun and values her privacy.
This was a super cute and super short little read loosely based on the fairytale Beauty And The Beast Bette owns a bookstore called HAPPILY EVER AFTER It’s not doing very well. In fact, it is basically falling apart. Dickson Hotels has been trying to buy it from her, but Bette refuses to sell.
One day her Dad asks her to go on a blind date with a client of his, and that date turns into some sexy times in her bookstore. Unfortunately, some truths come to light and Bette is NOT a happy camper. Words are exchanged. Books go flying. And feelings are hurt. Luckily for us, the air gets cleared and the beast that broke Bette’s heart turns into a real prince and they live HEA.
As I said, this was just a really cute read. Had a couple nice sex scenes. Had likable main characters, and a nice array of secondary ones. I look forward to the others in this series.
