    Lost and Found

    Heartburn is the third book in the Love By Design series by M.C. Cerny. The novel is a fun romance between Amelia (Lia) Faust, a college student disgusted with roommates who steal the guy your crushing on and the outdoors, and Whit Jones, a forest ranger. They meet when Lia becomes lost in the forest due to her preoccupation on her roommate and the guy she wanted to date. Whit is sent out on a search and rescue mission to find her. Lia is found by Whit and they spend a steamy night sharing body heat and more. Whit and Lia are strongly attracted to each other and end up going to Vegas for a bachelor/bachelorette party which also includes a planned trip to meet Whit’s parents. There is an eight year difference in the couple’s age which is a worrying factor in their relationship. I strongly suggest reading this wonderful rom-com novel.

    I like Whit. I think I’ve always liked Whit.

    I like Whit. I think I’ve always liked Whit. There’s just something special about his brand of ‘strong silent type’. It works for me. I liked Lia too. I’m twice her age and I still feel like I haven’t made any more headway deciding what to do with my life than she has. I can totally sympathise with her. They have the kind of meet-cute that romance novels are made of. Case in point. But there’s a whole lot of fuss and bother over the eight year difference in their ages. Too much for what the difference really deserves. And calling quotation marks “commas” has the grammarian in me throwing a temper tantrum. There’s actually several little spelling and grammar things like that which made me twitch, but since it’s light years better than the first two books in the series, I was able to overlook most of them. Whit and Lia were able to bring me past the jaw clenching frustration the first two couples left me with. Now I’m looking forward to seeing what’s in store for Chase. I received a complimentary copy of this book through Booksprout.

    Sometimes a bad day can lead you somewhere good.

    I really enjoyed this story. It started out a little shaky for me, but I really enjoyed Amelia (Lia) and Wittaker (Witt) figuring out that they were probably meant for more. Lia is in college and goes camping with some "friends" but gets upset and goes for a walk without knowing where she is going. Witt is a park ranger and he has to go and find Lia when she doesn't find her way back to camp. You would think they wouldn't work, but they do and actually complement each other. There were lots of feels with this book, including a lot of laughs. I did get frustrated with the age difference being brought up by all of the characters constantly (they are 8 years apart) when it's not that big of a difference. The wake up call was a little harder than I expected, but it worked to resolve the angst (or at least, most of it!). I liked that they were together in the end, but I'm not sure I can say they got a happy ever after since I felt like the story ended abruptly. I would have liked an epilogue further down the road than just when Lia returned from her trip. This was an enjoyable romance with plenty of steam and I liked both Lia and Witt (Witt a little more!). I would love to see stories about the supporting characters in the book. This was my first book by this author and I'm looking forward to reading more. Definitely recommend giving this one a read!

    A Good Read

    I thought this was a hot and fast romance, easy to read, mostly feel good. Whit being 28 and Lia only 20, the age difference seems huge, especially when friends start their razzing. Lia wants her space to find herself and Whit is overly jealous, thinking she will move back to her younger crowd. Neither one is that secure in themselves, or that this will last forever until fate steps in, obliterating all the small stuff that shouldn't matter. Story intent was good, characters started out very likable with snark and intelligence being a turn on for both of them lol. Moving on not so sure there was as much love as there was lust throughout. I didn't feel the soul mate bond like I wanted and the jealous trait of Whit did not endear him to me, while Lia did, at times, act immature. The ending was HOT!
