    I REALLY loved this book.

    I REALLY loved this book. This was a GENIUS idea. I was introduced to Allie and Vinny in the previous books in the series, but they were always just the parents; the wise grown-ups that hosted Sunday dinner and made Italian wedding cookies. I never considered that they would get their own "flashback" book about how they first met, but I am SO so happy they did! This story was just so well done. First of all, Vinny was a gentleman. He opened doors, was chivalrous and thoughtful and Allie accepted his gestures. THANK YOU. She didn't get combative with him, all "I can open my own door, just because I'm a woman you think you have to open a door for me?" like so many heroines are in romances these days. Nope, the two of them made caring gestures back and forth and it was a wonderful illustration of their feelings for each other. And holy smokes, when these two finally got their moment alone, WOW was that steamy! Leave it to Kylie to lure you in with a sweet story and then BAM! Set your book on fire. I was nervous about Vinny because I don't prefer widow/widower stories. But. The matter of his deceased wife was an aspect that truly helped the story instead of hinder it. I admired Allie's protectiveness when it came to her kids. She had to be super sure Vinny was the guy for her before she brought him around her kids. Though not absolutely necessary to have read all of the books in the series first, I highly recommend reading all of them in at least some sort of order to "get the whole picture" of this wild family! (I was given this book in consideration of my honest thoughts)

    An excellent prequel

    If you have read the other books in the series, then you already know a lot about Allie and Vinny as older adults. They are such great people! But we only see them through their sons' eyes, and we know a just few things about their lives before they were married. Now we get a prequel to tell us the story that only Allie and Vinny know. (Just a hint: I would never give 5 stars to a story that involved cheating.) This could be read as a standalone because it is the beginning of their story; you don't need to know anything else to understand what is happening. Since I had read the previous books, though, I was looking for little hints and clues of the future I knew was coming. Vinny was adorable and sweet. Allie was brave, and I liked seeing her gain confidence. The whole story was very sweet and made lots of sense in light of the characters we already know. It was fun seeing the boys as kids. The end made me choke up a little. I really enjoyed this peek into the past, and I am looking forward to getting Maggie's prequel.

    Heartwarming

    A Valentine’s Day Gift by Kylie Gilmore is a beautifully written heartwarming story of Alli and Vinny in how they fell in love. I loved reading about how the parents of the brothers Clover Park Studs series met. Alli is in a loveless marriage with 3 boys and Vinny a recent widower with 3 boys. They both respect marriage and Vinny gives Alli gives encouragement for her art through love letters. This book is one not to miss reading it is heartwarming! I received this book for free for a honest review.

    Loved this prequel story!

    I love that the author decided to write this story. Allie and Vinny are the sweet couple who married and brought together two families. Many stories in the Clover Park series revolves around the sons, so when I heard Allie and Vinny were getting a prequel story, I was ecstatic! So now we get to go back in time and find out how it all began for them. As an added bonus, some of our favorite Clover Park heroes are seen as kids. :) Both Allie and Vinny are in a rough place in life when they meet. They spark a friendship and things grow from there. But there are a few complications. Allie's married, and Vinny is reeling from the loss of his wife. But it doesn't stop them from becoming friends. When circumstances change because both realize they need to better their lives, they meet up once again. It starts out as a slow, sweet friendship, but neither can deny they feel so much more. And so begins the saga of the two falling in love. And there I went, falling in love even further with the family. Humorous, heartfelt, sweet, and sexy. Kylie Gilmore delivers another engaging story once again.

    Fantastic Love Story

    A Valentine’s Day Gift was a great story by the very talented Kylie Gilmore, this is a story that will capture your heart and hold on to your heart till the very end. This is a story that has friendship, family and definitely some love. I absolutely loved this book I have to say this maybe my most favorite of the whole series. This is the story of Allie and Vinny two people who know that friendship is all they can have or is it. This is where this incredible story will take you on a great journey with these two wonderful characters there are a few bumps along the way with plenty of twists that will keep you hooked. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book but I also purchased it.
