There is a reason that this author is a bestselling one It is because of her ability to create characters that feel real amidst a story that tugs at one s heartstrings I know that with every new story that I read by her that I can be guaranteed to have my emotions react in a myriad of ways.This story is no different as it takes a wedding planner, Avery, that believes in love and wants it for herself, and a man, Carter, that doesn t It is a case of opposites attract It should be cliche but it is anything but This is because of this author s ability to weave a tale that sucks her audience in I felt like I was along on the ride and was in Avery s shoes I wouldn t have warmed up to Carter very fast either In fact, I didn t I struggled with liking him for her However, my feelings changed as the story progressed Fantastic secondary characters and definitely some future stories could come from this book.If you are on the fence about reading this, or any of the author s previous work, don t be She truly is special. One of my Publishing edits, out 4 7 20 Yikes Unfortunately, I was not a big fan of the hero or the heroine The hero was an asshole through and through, even when he dumped her you know the breakup that happens a chapter before the epilogue I saw nothing really redeemable about him as a romance hero but he seems to be really good with kids and dogs See I for one completely understand that family has a huge impact on your life and beliefs, but that does not give you an excuse to be a dick It just felt unbelievable the way the hero and heroine finally got together, she gave in so easily, like make him work for the shit he has said I just didn t like the heroine cause she never called on his behavior and she had very dumb responses, I would have preferred her having of a backbone but maybe her sister Taylor will make up for it She seemed to have a very good career, I applaud her on that.The 3 stars were for Lucy his dog , Zoe her adorable niece and Taylor who has such an attitude and I love it Also in the next book, it seems that the heroine is going to be a dick so not really looking forward to reading that one.This is an opinion, please do not get offended Love on Beach Avenue was a fun romance It features Avery, a wedding planner, who runs the business that used to belong to their parents, with her two sisters Avery agrees to take on her best friend from college, Ally, as a client, with the wedding quickly approaching in three months.Carter, the older brother who raised Ally after the death of their parents, has always been disapproving of Avery He decides to spend the summer at the beach town where Avery s business is located so that he can make sure she doesn t mess anything up The two do not hit it off well upon becoming reacquainted Carter inserts himself into the wedding planning and contradicts all of Avery s decisions As the two struggle for control of the wedding, they begin to feel an unwelcome attraction for each other.I enjoyed this book and liked the characters My favorite parts were when Carter interacted with Avery s four year old niece, Zoe Those were some very charming scenes I liked the storyline, but did become a bit weary of the competitiveness between Carter and Avery over wedding details Overall, I found the book spirited and entertaining.
