Review & Giveaway: Love Caters All by Nicci Carrera

Love Caters All
by Nicci Carrera


When hard-driving CEO Rick Nordan arrives in Lobster Cove under strict orders from the family doctor to take a break, he discovers the rental house comes with a family attached, including one sexy dynamo of a caterer. She's nothing like his ex-fiancée who wouldn't sign a pre-nup, but maybe that means she's the real deal and not a gold digger.

Maya Cruz wants life for her widowed mother to get easier by renting out her house during the summer. But teaching Mama business means explaining Rick isn't a "guest," he's a "customer." And the first thing Mama does is invite Rick to join their family activities.

Having Rick around wouldn't be so bad if Maya didn't find him so attractive. The last time she fell for a vacationing millionaire, she had her heart broken.

She swore off his type, and he's not looking, but this might be a recipe for love.


My Review:
I really liked this romance, once I started reading it, I could not put it down. I love everything about this novel but in particular the setting: Lobster Cove seem to be the ideal place to spend a nice quiet and relaxing holiday
Rick Nordan is very stressed by his work: is a successful businessman but really needs to cut loose from everything. His doctor advised him to rent a holiday home in Lobster Cove, a relaxing town in Maine. He will have to stay there for two weeks and absolutely without any electronic device. What he doesn't know is that Maya Cruz and her mother Pilar, the family landlady, will live with him, Right now he feels attracted to Maya and tries to conquer her in every way. But Maya is a wounded woman: a boy had made her fall in love and then he was gone leaving her with a broken heart and is determined to not suffer so again. But how to resist such a sexy man like Rick?
I really loved Maya. I thought she was such a great character! Maya is sweet but also impertinent, ​​is very responsible and really attached to her family: after her father's death she tried to be the new benchmark for all and works hard to help her mother and her sisters. She's also a girl very insecure: she's afraid that the beauty of her twins fascinate Rick and he doen't feel more attracted to her. Rick is rich, glamorous and sexy but also a humble person. It was great to see the initial attraction between Maya and Rick and their reactions: their first encounters are so fun.
It 's a quick and likeable read, but sweet, romantic and fun.
I recommend it as a beach reading and those who love romance and books set in picturesque little town. 
I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review



“I’m sorry,” he said.

Oh, so the way to get Rick to apologize was to let him win? Now there was an interesting twist. She stuck out her hand. “Truce?”

He nodded but didn’t let her hand go. Instead he pulled her close for a kiss. For a moment she drank in his scent, which was a subtle spice, like Earl Grey tea.

 “What did you do that for?”

 “I didn’t have any other defense.”

“A kiss is not a defensive move!”

“What about this?” His firm tug landed her against his chest.
