SUMMARY

Join the residents of Winslow Island for a fun-filled, opposites-attract, sweet romance – full of piggyback rides and scrumptious baked goods.

It might be Winslow Island’s annual Matchmaking Festival, but Tessa has more important things to worry about, like how to keep her mother’s bed and breakfast in business.

Parker’s life is as precise and planned as the surgeries he performs. He’s on track for a career-making promotion – if he can improve his bedside manner.

When his mother plans a family celebration for the same weekend as the Matchmaking Festival, Parker suspects he’s in for a series of sneaky setups. But with his promotion fast approaching, he has no time for distractions – until Tessa crashes into him in a shower of glitter, wreaking havoc with his plans and his heart.

With a temper as fiery as her red hair, she’s a distraction too tempting to ignore.

Tessa is determined to resist Parker’s charms – even if his smile makes her toes curl. He’s only on the island for five days, and she won’t risk a broken heart. But with the festival in full swing, resisting Parker is proving harder than she expected, especially when he becomes the key to saving her mother’s business.

REVIEW

It’s a sweet, light, cute and clean romance, which I’m fancy of. The story was so interesting even though there’s a little bit flaw that I’ve found for example, like it’s pretty clichรจ but I like it. I think it’s relevant to the contemporary romance genre. I love the setting. I really hope the island exist! I also love the characters, I ship them a lot where a bright girl named Tessa meets an arrogant and cold-blooded doctor, Parker. I adore the interconnected stories between them, I don’t how many times I’m flushed every time I read their scenes. I’d say that the characters were so compatible.

If you are looking for light and breezy romance, I’d recommend this book for you to read. It’s something cute and light to pamper your heart. Anyway, the book is finally out and congratulations Chrissy Elliot!

ใ€ŠThank you so much for sending me an ARC for free for an exchange of my honest reviewใ€‹

Synopsis

An unsuspecting college student is inadvertently thrust into the paparazzi spotlight when a country music star mingles at a local karaoke club. After an unexpected photo surfaces online, the power of clickbait media sends two people from different worlds on a collision course with destiny.

A break from touring proves to be anything but relaxing, as Landon Ross navigates a whirlwind of tabloid manipulation, crazed fans and heightened security protocol. Each detail of his life is carefully structured and scheduled. But the unexpected arrival of a talented local music major makes him re-evaluate everything.

Review

Truth be told, I’m not a big fan of romance, but it doesn’t mean that I despise romance. I think romance is such a seasoning spice to add in any kind of genre, even there’s romance in the horror genre, amirite?

Okay, let’s get back to A Guarded Love! It’s a simple, quick pace story, so sweet and dreamy. I’m not going to lie, there’s a little flaw but it doesn’t ruin the whole plot. If the story a little much longer I’m gonna love it! On couple first pages, I thought it’s cliche, but it’s well-developed, there’s a twist. I love the flow. There’s a suspense and you may see the love progress. It’s also about how you regain your trust in a relationship.

I love the hero of this book, Landon Ross. He’s such a sweet guy. So protective and responsible. I love the development of the chemistry between these two main characters. Landon is such a perfect partner for Kristin. I’d like to say, she’s lucky!

I’d RECOMMEND you to read this if you have ever dreamt of dating a celebrity. It’s so cute and sweet!

Last but not least, I’d like to thank Dr. Trina Boice for inviting me to join Adelia Burke book blog tour. Thank you so much for this opportunity! Thank you so much the author of A Guarded Love, Adelia Burke for providing me a free ebook copy of this book.

Review

This is my first contemporary romance that Iโ€™ve ever read. I personally love the story. As expected, it might be clichรฉโ€™ in the way sheโ€™s getting along with Peter Kavinsky. However, I found itโ€™s so cute and sweet! To be honest, I never thought of writing a letter to crush and never send them because I donโ€™t see the point. But the main point is there. Itโ€™s starting with a letter. Lucky Lara Jean her crush like her back. The first book was focused on Lara Jean normal life โ€“ about her siblings, her best friend, her ex-best friend and her โ€œcrushesโ€.

Iโ€™d say more likely a character introduction because her life changing started in the mid-read. I loved how Jenny is balancing the Lara Jeanโ€™s life. Her relationship with her family esp. with her sister is so valuable and precious.

I love the characters. My favourite is Chris character, but I love Lara Jean. Sheโ€™s such an inspiration. And Peter K. such a dream guy. Josh is a good guy. Kitty is such a miserable sister, but you canโ€™t hate her. I love the relationship between characters. Itโ€™s made you into the character and might be happening in your life.

This book was so high school, freaking adorable when teens are crazily in โ€œpuppy loveโ€. If you are into contemporary fiction or romance, Iโ€™d RECOMMEND this book. You might love Lara Jean aestheticism or maybe Peter Kavinsky.
