[Book Review] From the Start by Melissa Tagg

From the Start

by

Melissa Tagg

My Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars

My Review:

What do football and romance movies have in common? Well, you’re probably thinking absolutely nothing! But Melissa Tagg has combined two complete opposites to make an endearing story that will touch your heart.

 

Kate Walker has been wounded by love yet she spends her life writing tv romances. When she hits a slump, she heads back home to see if she can figure out what’s next for herself.

Colton Greene was a star quarterback in the NFL but when he is left with a permanent injury, he’s unsure what’s next in his life. He decides to hide away from the media in one of his friend’s hometown while he decides what’s next.

When Kate and Colton’s lives connect, they find themselves working on a project that they both hope will lead them onto whatever is next for their lives. But what they don’t expect is to make such a huge impact on each other. However, past hurts make it difficult for them to move on.

 

I really enjoyed Melissa Tagg’s first series so I was really excited to dig into this novel. You should plan on reading Melissa Tagg’s free e-novella Three Little Words because it will open up the scene for From the Start as well as provide you with an entertaining read! The characters that Ms. Tagg has created are so lovable and they become your family as you dive into their world. If you like contemporary romance novels then you will definitely enjoy From the Start!

[Book Review] Here to Stay by Melissa Tagg

Here to Stay

by

Melissa Tagg

My Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars

My Review:

I absolutely loved Melissa Tagg’s debut novel, Made to Last. I think most of us readers can agree that Blaze was a favorite character so I was excited that Ms. Tagg gave him his own story in Here to Stay.

In Here to Stay, Blake, “Blaze,” returns to his hometown. Having left town several years earlier due to a traumatizing event, he is unsure of what kind of welcome he will receive.

Autumn has been running the family inn for several years. However, she has a dream job opportunity in Paris. Not wanting to leave the inn in shambles, she does what she can to fix it up for a potential investor.

When Blake is offered the job of coordinating the Christmas festival, he knows he can’t do it alone, so he enlists the help of Autumn in exchange for some handiwork around her inn.

Blake and Autumn’s families have not gotten along for several years. In a race to make everything perfect for the Christmas festival, the two of them must put their differences aside and learn to work together.

As I said before, many readers became endeared to Blake in Made to Last. Ms. Tagg only increased our love for him in this novel. Autumn was a believable character – big dreams, big hopes, big disappointments. Ms. Tagg did a great job of creating these characters and bringing them to life.

I received a free ecopy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. I received no compensation for this review, nor was I required to write a positive review. All opinions stated are my own.

[Book Review] Made to Last by Melissa Tagg

Made to Last

by

My Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars

My review:

Such a sweet debut novel!

 

I am not a big fan of contemporary romance but every now and then a new book comes into my path that looks good enough to pick up and that is what I thought about Made to Last. It had a fun cover that drew me in, and it sounded like a fresh storyline so I decided to give it a try.

 

Miranda Woodruff is a reality TV star from the popular home improvement show “From the Ground Up.” While filming for season 4, Miranda finds out that ratings are down and that the network is considering canceling her show. Miranda has placed her entire identity in her show, and she is willing to do anything to boost ratings… Even pretend to have a husband in order to draw more publicity.

Matthew is a reporter who is looking for a way to make his career spark. When he is asked to write a blog series about Miranda Woodruff, he jumps on the chance and is continually searching for an inside scoop in order to get a “cover worthy” story.

As Miranda pretends to be married to one guy, she finds herself drawn to the reporter who she is spending a lot of time with. When her former fiancé shows up, Miranda has a hard time juggling three different guys and trying to keep her show from plummeting into cancelation.

 

This storyline was so sweet. I loved these characters and they came alive to me as I entered their world. Blaze was such a sweet “husband” and I found myself really liking his character. Matthew struggled with things in his past and you can see how that affects some of the decisions he makes in this book. Miranda was definitely a strong, independent heroine. A “fix-it-herself” kind of girl, I couldn’t relate to her in everything, but I loved her just the same. While some of the things in this book came as a slight surprise, some of the things were still predictable but sometimes that’s welcome in a book. In this case, I enjoyed everything about the book.

 

You will definitely love this debut novel from Melissa Tagg! I am looking forward to reading more books from this loveable author.
