Poppy Somerville believes in happily-ever-after.

Escaping to her aunt’s beach cottage in Sweetbriar Cove, Poppy is looking for inspiration to break her writer’s block and finish her new book. She just wasn’t counting on the handsome, gruff contractor making such a racket next door…

Cooper Nicholson doesn’t believe in soul-mates. He thought he’d found his forever once, and the world proved him wrong, so when the cute brunette comes storming over and demands he keep the noise down, romance is the last thing on his mind. But his new neighbor is full of surprises, and soon, their chemistry is too hot to ignore.

As they grow closer, they discover fiction has nothing on the plot twists life has in store. But will Cooper find a way to let go of the past and risk his heart again? And can Poppy find her happy ending – on and off the page?

Meant to Be (Sweetbriar Cove, #1)Meant to Be by Melody Grace
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Any book that breaks my heart and makes me cry is an automatic 5 star book. The quality of writing is excellent, the plot was well thought through and the pace of the story was good. I had 40 minutes of the book left when I should have been switching my kindle off and going to sleep .... the book won easily, it was gripping and had characters I felt invested in.

Poppy and Cooper were both well developed, genuine and likable characters, with an amazing chemistry. Their interactions were believable, felt real and best of all they were normal, imperfect people. I liked that the book was written from both main characters POV, I find it easier to empathise with them and understand their actions.

The story felt like coming home, it was comfortable, warm and loving. Cooper's belief that he wasn't good enough to love tore me to pieces, and I loved him despite his stupid decisions. He was such a charmer but so broken underneath it all. I really loved the supporting characters in this book and am looking forward to future stories where they get their HEA.

I highly recommend buying and reading this book - you won't regret it.
